Review-A-Day

"[T]elevision's highest rated haranguer wants to bond with kids and guide them through the minefield that is adolescence. The tie-less, sweater-wearing visage of O'Reilly on the cover is there to let kids know this isn't bullying, opinionated, hatchet-man O'Reilly that's speaking to them. It's patronizing, out-of-touch, painfully-attempting-to-identify O'Reilly. And believe me, when it comes to relating with kids, O'Reilly is about as believable as a high school narc." Gerry Donaghy (read the entire Powells.com review)

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The bestselling author of The O'Reilly Factor, The No Spin Zone, and Who's Looking Out for You? talks straight to kids this time. He is as demanding, direct, and wry as ever — but he's also more revealing too, sharing candid snapshots of his own childhood throughout.

Bill O'Reilly, a former schoolteacher, now an award-winning broadcast news journalist, husband, and father of two, joins forces with an experienced educator to bring you, America's youth, a code of ethics by which to live. In this latest book, Bill takes to task bullies, cheaters, advertisers who target you irresponsibly, and parents who fight for their children to win undeserved honors instead of earning them on their own merit.

He lays bare the unvarnished truths about sex, money, smoking, drugs, alcohol, and friends. What he has to say about these issues may very well surprise you. He offers coping devices for those enduring a divorce, struggling with teacher, parent, or sibling relationships, and planning their futures. He also shares wisdom on such subjects as death, politics, and God.

Whether you take the tests he's provided, take the advice he doles out, or just take a cue from the personal stories he shares, you're bound to make smarter choices in your life, and that's all Bill asks for.

Review:

"The authoritative tone will appeal to O'Reilly's fans, but will not engage adolescents who are not eager for advice from an adult whom they do not consider to be a role model." School Library Journal

Review:

"[T]he book...is best understood as an extension of the Bill O'Reilly brand and, to a lesser degree, a glimpse into the Bill O'Reilly psyche, which don't always overlap." Michael Newman, The New York Times Book Review

Synopsis:

The controversial and widely admired media star delivers a strong dose of no-holds-barred advice and unvarnished truth with this "survival guide" for teens.

EllersKrugs, January 11, 2008 (view all comments by EllersKrugs)
My sister was sent this book for Christmas by my very conservative uncle. Needless to say my mother (a moderate, and a born and raised Roman Catholic, who left the church after college) was APALED. This is not an appropriate book for children 11 years old, it is not an appropriate book for anyone with half a mind. Bill O'Reilly needs some lessons on how to write. His words are basic, and unhelpful. I am 16, and I have heard more interesting things written by high school drop outs.
My favorite part is when he is talking about sex and says, "Thanks to certain priests in the Catholic Church and to other sources, you also know about deviant behaviors.".
That was a serious red flag. How can he turn something so deep, and so personal for those individuals into a mockery?
Read this book if you want to be sadly disappointed at how helpless this man must be if he is wasting his time telling teens things they obviously already know.
Seriously, quit gratifying yourself and use your, "career that's lots of fun and makes me (O'Reilly) a lot of money." to better the world...or at least buy a new shirt.
