Now available in trade paperback, the #1 bestselling andlt;iandgt;New York Times andlt;/iandgt;author Glenn Beck tackles some of our countryand#8217;s biggest problems in this funny, outrageous, and entertaining book.andlt;BRandgt;andlt;BRandgt;Glenn Beck believes that the reason why some of our biggest problems never seem to get fixed is simple: the solutions just arenand#8217;t very convenient. And as the host of a nationally syndicated radio show and a prime-time television show on CNN Headline News, Glenn Beck doesnand#8217;t care much about convenience; he cares about common sense.andlt;BRandgt; andlt;BRandgt;Take the issue of poverty, for example. Over the last forty years, Americaand#8217;s poorest cities all had one simple thing in common, but politicians will never reveal what that is (or explain how easy it would be to change). Global warming is another issue thatand#8217;s rife with lies and distortion. How many times have we heard that carbon dioxide is responsible for huge natural disasters that have killed millions of people? The truth is, itand#8217;s actually the other way around: as CO2 has increased, deaths from extreme weather have decreased. But that would never be shown in an Al Gore slide show.andlt;BRandgt; andlt;BRandgt;Combining honesty with a biting sense of humor, andlt;iandgt;An Inconvenient Book andlt;/iandgt;contains hundreds of these "why have I never heard that before?" types of facts that will leave readers wondering how political correctness, special interests, and outright stupidity have gotten us so far away from the common sense solutions this country was built on.
Popular syndicated radio host Beck entertains and enlightens with this inspiring and informative book that offers common-sense solutions to the problems that seem too big and complicated to solve. Full-color illustrations throughout.
