FUNNY. OUTRAGEOUS. TRUE.

Have you ever wondered why some of the biggest problems we face, from illegal immigration to global warming to poverty never seem to get fixed? The reason is simple: the solutions just aren't very convenient. Fortunately, radio and television host Glenn Beck doesn't care much about convenience, he cares about common sense.

Take the issue of poverty, for example. Over the last forty years, America's ten poorest cities all had one simple thing in common, but self-serving politicians will never tell you what that is (or explain how easy it would be to change): Glenn Beck will. Global warming is another issue that's ripe with lies and distortion. How many times have you heard that carbon dioxide is responsible for huge natural disasters that have killed millions of people? The truth is, it's actually the other way around: as CO2 has increased, deaths from extreme weather have decreased. Bet you'll never see that in an Al Gore slideshow. An Inconvenient Book contains hundreds of these same "why have I never heard that before?" type of facts that will leave you wondering how political correctness, special interests, and outright stupidity have gotten us so far away from the common sense solutions this country was built on.

As the host of a nationally syndicated radio program and a prime-time television show on CNN, Headline News, Glenn Beck combines a refreshing level of honesty with a biting sense of humor and a lot of research to find solutions that will open your eyes while entertaining you along the way.

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dustin | 1/29/2014

    " This book is very informative. Probably a little over-simplified, but it brings many of society's problems to light and how to solve them. "

    " this guy is hillarious n so rite "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tia | 1/21/2014

    " I was tempted to give this book 2 stars throughout most of the reading, but I really do agree with most of Glenn Beck's political views. That being said I get really tired of his overly sarcastic humor and mockery. Occasional crudeness as well. This book was kind of a hodgepodge of his views on a myriad of subjects. I liked what he had to say on most of the political issues, but then he put in some stupid subjects like online dating that were pointless. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jerianna | 1/20/2014

    " Liked the book, like Glenn. Didn't hold my interest the entire time. Maybe 3.7. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shane | 1/19/2014

    " Glenn is Demented and Logical in the same breath. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jasmyn | 1/8/2014

    " I love this guy! He's hilarious and right on in most of his political opinions. I listen to him on the way home from work everyday and then come home and make Marc listen to everything new I learned. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Chanae | 1/5/2014

    " There were a few chapters I found interesting but many of the chapters (problems to be fixed) were a little boring. Maybe if I had actually read the book but I listened to it on cd and there were times I would find myself zoning out and unable to concentrate on what was being said. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jay Foust | 12/20/2013

    " I love Glenn's books and this one was not exception. The book is very funny, as usual, but also includes some great information about what is going wrong in our country and world and some good ideas on how to fix this problems. If Glenn keeps writing them, I'll get reading them. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Emily | 12/19/2013

    " Glenn Beck is seroiusly my hero. I think he has the coolest opinions and his book was hilarious! haha. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chris | 12/9/2013

    " I loved hearing Glenn's view on many political topics and felt like I finally heard truth once I heard his side of the story. I is kind of like how the theory of evolution is not presented as a theory. Most of the topics he challenges are presented to us as truth with no alternatives. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Rebecca | 11/12/2013

    " Read off and on and eventually just abandoned my attempt. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Julia | 8/30/2013

    " I like to watch his show too. Sometimes he seems like a scare sensationalist, but its probably all true. Its a good read if you want to know just how bad things really are! Plus a little humor. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Barbara Bluefield | 5/11/2013

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lauren | 11/18/2012

    " This book was all over the place- from global warming to child molesters and "bonnet movies," it seemed like one very long rant. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sabrina | 10/8/2012

    " This is a very interesting and thought provoking book. Reminded me a little of Freakanomics. Do not read if you have liberal leanings. "

    " So I haven't read the whole book, it was due back to the library and had a hold so I couldn't renew it, but this book is a great read! It covers a handful of topics, political and not so political and it is so funny! I will definetly be checking this book out again to finish it! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Scott | 3/8/2011

    " An excellent book. Not political at all, it's about Glenn's personal redemption and some general characterictics/ habits that lead one to genuine happiness. The psychology is interesting, but the in depth look into Glenn's application of these ideas is inspiring "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kim | 3/1/2011

    " I found some valuable insights in this book. "
