The O'Reilly Factor for Kids: A Survival Guide for America's Familiesby Bill O'Reilly
"[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
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.
"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
"[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
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.
