From the mega-bestselling author ofThe O'Reilly FactorandThe No Spin Zone, a no-holds-barred exposé of the people and institutions who are letting Americans down – and what we should do about it. Bill O’Reilly is mad as hell – and he’s not going to let you take it anymore. In his most powerful and personal book yet, this media powerhouse and unstoppable truth-teller takes on those individuals and institutions in American life who are failing in their duties – big-time. In his inimitable style, mixing wit, pugnacity, and plain common sense, O’Reilly kicks butt and takes (and also names) names – from crooked corporate weasels to venal politicians to lazy and/or politically correct bureaucrats to sexually predatory priests and the Church hierarchy that protects them to a media establishment rife with political bias and economically hooked on violence and smut. At the same time that he calls the famous and powerful to account, he dares to get personal, questioning just how much our closest friends, families, and loversdolook out for us, and delivering a powerful message about personal responsibility and self-reliance in an uncertain world. He forces us to ask just how much genuine altruism is left in a society that thrives on self-indulgence and ruthless competition. Who’s Looking Out for You'is a book that boldly confronts our worst fears and biggest problems in a post-9/11, post-corporate-meltdown world. Its sage, candid advice on regaining control and trust in these troubled times will resonate with the millions of readers and viewers who have come to believe in Bill O’Reilly as the man who speaks forthem.… (more)

I thought this book was great and I feel it should be read by everyone.

Yes, Bill O'Reilly is opinionated. Yes, he goes after certain people with a vengence, and yes he can be described as a consumate conservative. But as he states in his book, it is his right and it must be respected. I agree with most of what Bill O'Reilly writes. I find that he is factual, not because I know what he knows (God knows I don't) but he backs up his statements. My wife did not seem to like this book because O'Reilly mixes clips of his show both on TV and the Radio Factor and she feels that she can get all the information on these shows, and not have to read them here. Fair enough! But I didn't read it that way. O'Reilly pointed out certain individuals behavior and why he feels that they are not looking out for you, then he backs it up with an interview he had either on TV or Radio. I would suggest that Choclaholic, maybe take another read.

OK, so where do I disagree with Mr. O'Reilly. Well disagree is a bad word to use because I am not really against him on any issue. As we all know, Bill O'Reilly is deeply religious, and I definitely respect that. He also, does not shove his religion down our throats in this book, and I highly respect that too. He would like to see an America that goes back to basics on religion like our founding fathers meant it to be in their time. The problem I have here is that Bill does not consider the fact that we are evolving. He also mixes religion with spirituality. Sorry Bill, but I do not need to go to Church to commune with my God. I also don't think that my God is at all interested in the petty rituals the institution called Church instills into the parishoners to mindlessly follow. Close to the end of the book Bill gives some good advice about being independent and having individual thought. I guess it starts here with me Bill. I feel that the real reason 9/11 happened is because a certain few individuals were angry that we don't follow their rituals. I could go on a serious rant here but I won't. I do feel however, that Bill is right about how he sees the degeneration of America and that we need to start seeing it as well.

The last few chapters of this book gives great advice in the humblest of ways. Bill O'Reilly uses his own mistakes to point out the positive and to warn us not to commit those same mistakes. ( )

Pretty good book by the surprisingly moderate Bill O'Reilly. He uses some material you may have read in one of Michael Savage's books concerning the NAMBLA. However, it is overall, a good book. ( )

I really tried to keep an open mind while reading this and, truthfully, there are some points upon which I agree. But O'Reilly is such a narcissistic, sanctimonious jackass that it's hard for me to care. ( )

Like Bill's past books, Who's Looking Out for You? isn't wretched or anything. There's just not really any deep insight in it- unless you really didn't already know that corporations are out to make money hand over fist, ethics be damned, and politicians are mostly self-serving scumbags whose actual concern for the citizen is inversely proportional to how much they profess to care (i.e. Hillary). I bought this at the airport, and it got me through the flight; it did, so I guess it was a success to that extent. ( )
