Do you want to live in The Real America?

As one of the most listened to nationally syndicated radio talk-show hosts and the driving force behind the Rallies for America, Glenn Beck entertains, inspires, and informs millions of listeners. In The Real America, Beck continues telling it like it really is, cutting through the fog of modern-day pundits and pontificators who have made it their mission to undermine and underestimate the greatness of America, our strength as Americans, and the power of the American spirit.

With his inimitable combination of self-effacing humor and heartfelt conviction, Glenn rails against many of the forces that keep us from our potential as a nation and as individuals -- and tells how to overcome them. His topics include:

• Family and community

• Politics

• Personal responsibility

• Religion

• Political correctness, the media, Hollywood, and celebrities

• Alcohol and drugs

• Why I wave the flag

Glenn Beck's compelling message in The Real America echoes the ideas he has delivered to thousands of people with his groundbreaking Rallies for America: Once we connect with our power individually, we can empower others -- and then we can be as great and as grand as we have always wanted to be as a person, as a people, and as a nation.

    " This was a great book, introduction to Glenn. It's been a few years since I read it so I don't remember that much about it, though, but I love his conversion story and how much effort he put into finding the true gospel. "

    " This book was written in 2003, and is in some ways a little dated politically, but the principles still apply. Glenn Beck is both humorous and annoying, spiritual and irreverent, serious and nonsensical. But he does make you think about things. He is not a republican or a democrat but always a conservative politically. Most of the time I agree with what he is saying, but you have to wade through the silliness to get to it. That is what makes him good on the radio, like he says, sometimes you have to fill the air space. I recommend this book. "

    " I thoroughly enjoyed this book and highly recommend it! "

    " If you like Glen Beck, you will REALLY love this audio book. If you absolutely loath him, well... give it 30 minutes and see if you aren't ready to cut him some slack. I don't always enjoy his radio rants -- sometimes a little edgy and often pretty wacky -- but I have always appreciated him as an intelligent and entertainingly articulate conservative spokesman. More often than not, I side with his views. In this little book, I sensed a man with out guile who IS what he says he is. Is he a "sick, twisted freak"? Maybe. But he is the kind of freak that fully confesses what he was, decided to change, and demonstrated profound courage and discipline in transforming himself. So Beck regales us with stories illustrating what was so good about America, how it is being taken from us, and what it will take to restore it. At the same time, I couldn't help being impressed with the great American journey of his own personal transformation. Hate him if you will, but after hearing it through to the last CD, I doubt any discerning critic will deny that Glenn Beck, rough edges and all, is no phoney. Yes, he is an entertainer, but this one happens to be sincere, honest, and devout. If he's a hypocrit, Beck will be the first one to announce it. And I don't think I would have been so impressed if I had just read the printed page. Hearing his thoughts and stories in his own voice is what earned it five stars. "
