Publisher Comments:

There are some things people think but don't say....

"Political correctness is the classic Great Idea Gone Wrong. All it's done is shut us up. It hasn't changed anybody's mind. It hasn't changed our hearts. It's changed our faces. It's taken every opinion we have, it's taken every joke we have, and it's forced us to conceal it and hide it and bury it. It's made us superficial."

"Terrorism isn't caused by poverty, poverty is caused by terrorism. Terror is a tool used by those seeking power to keep the masses in need of an answer."

"Too many people blame everything on everybody else, and because they do, they will expect too little from themselves and too little from their children."

Glenn Beck says all that, and more.

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 to tell 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

  • Race relations

  • Religion

  • Political correctness, the media, Hollywood, and celebrities

  • Abortion and the deat
  • penalty

  • 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.

Synopsis:

Glenn Beck, thirty-nine, is the host and star of The Glenn Beck Program, a daily talk radio show based out of Philadelphia that has jumped to syndication on more than 120 stations across the United States in just two years. The popular conservative pundit, whose keynote addresses at the "Rallies for America" have inspired thousands of listeners to demonstrate their support for the troops in Iraq, is growing in popularity every day. The Real America takes on political and personal issues, ranging from family responsibility to race relations, business, pornography, abortion, religion, and the death penalty. Beck encourages listeners to connect with their power individually to empower others to be as great and as grand as we all hope and dream.
