Book Review: The Overton Window, by Glenn Beck

I would have to put The Overton Window in the category of a Political Suspence Thriller.  As with anything Glenn Beck does, it is well researched with many factual references to certain factions of our government today, and how they operate. It gives us a hard-hitting look into extremist groups, Patriot/Teaparty ideology, domestic terrorism, and an inside look at what our Founding Fathers have written, and their thoughts when laying down the foundation for a new, free Republic based on a Government Of the People, For the people, and By the People.

I found myself immersed in a story-line that included an intense love story, a father-son love-hate relationship, corporate thuggery, and a race to save America from a nucleur bomb,  all wrapped up in a heavy dose of American Patriotism.  The title, The Overton Window refers to the many ways in which propagandists can change people’s perception of what is right or wrong, acceptable or unacceptable, and how they are paid big money to advance their client’s agenda. This book really puts the blatant bias of todays main stream media into a more visable perspective here. While this work of fiction contains an exciting drama – filled adventure, it also  contains lots of factual information about past incidents in America.

Glenn Beck’s personality shines through for any of his faithful fans familar with him, and it is obvious he was heavily involved it it’s writing. This refutes the nasty, hate-filled, agenda-laden critique of one Mr. Steven Livingston over  at  The Washington Post,* who either lacks any form of real world reading comprehension, or who failed to read any of the Afterword in the Overton Window, where Beck explains in detail the references, facts and  reasons for writing this book. I find Mr. Livingston to be guilty of a very misguided and uninformed denial of Journalistic Integrity, and of  the exact same mind- massaging techniques Beck explained in this book.  He smears Beck, the Book, the Teaparty, and insults the intelligence of all Americans in general with his personal attack ad disguised as some kind of unbiased review. Maybe thats why the Post stuck it in the back of the Arts and Living section. Whatever the reason, the once highly regarded Washington Post now falls into the category of Rags without Riches in my world. It is totaly disgusting that the Editor let that hate-speech pass as a book review. Read this book, then read that clown’s review.* See for yourself what his agenda is.

I give this book four out of five stars. It is very well-written, informative and it keeps the reader on the edge of their seat wondering how this story will end. The characters are well-defined, and this book pulls the reader right into the twisting and turning adventures of the main characters.  Highly recomended for readers of all ages. It is also available over at Amazon.com right now for only $4.98 ! **  Unless you are a flaming Liberal who’s life in based upon the denial of reality, I promise you will enjoy The Overton Window !
