This book was meant for teens and therefore is a short, easy read. It skims the surface of issues relating to teens, introduces the bill of rights and explains briefly how America's government works. I enjoyed the book and think it is a good introduction for teens into some complex social questions. ( )

I was delightfully surprised by this book. I wanted to read it first before I give it to a young friend. The book gives great examples that teens can relate to concerning our "rights." It's a great balance of humor with real life scenarios and the Constitution's Bill of Rights. O'Reilly gives teens and pre-teens much food for thought as they navigate through life learning about free speech, freedom of religion, freedom from search and seizure, etc. What is great about O'Reilly is he gets kids to THINK FOR THEMSELVES and make their own decisions - he isn't force feeding his opinions down your throat but instead gives both sides, even three or four sides of the issues! He helps teens learn to bargain for their rights rather than always confront them blindly - to pick and choose their battles - and how to negotiate with parents in a mature and reasonable manner! I recommend this book for any child. ( )

I am pretty sure this is one of the worst books ever but it might be secretly genius...nah. ( )

Excellent discussion of teen legal rights, using contemporary and interesting cases and making the point that these situations are not always cut and dried. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0060846763, Hardcover)

Four-time #1 bestselling author and veteran television news journalist Bill O'Reilly has more than 5 million copies of his books in print to date! His first book for younger fans, The O'Reilly Factor for Kids, held the honorable distinction of being the #1 bestselling nonfiction title for kids in 2005 according to Nielsen's The Book Standard.

Back again with a dialogue on rights that will have everyone talking, O'Reilly and his coauthor Charles Flowers dole out the kind of blunt, cogent, commonsense commentary you count on them for. Together they explore timely questions being debated in and out of courts today including:

Can a kid wear an antigay T-shirt on campus?

Does a school newspaper have the right to bad-mouth a principal?

Does a mother have the right to eavesdrop on her daughter's telephone conversations?

Some of the answers will surprise you. Some will empower you. All of them will make you think.
