Format: Paperback
If you read this book with an open mind, you might learn something about poverty and politics in America. Glenn Beck has distorted and misrepresented Fox Piven's ideas to an audience, which is largely comprised of people who have no idea what Fox Piven's ideas are, and still they believe Beck without question. Glenn Beck is a symptom of what has gone wrong with mainstream media in America. If you want to find out what Americans can do about it, read Fox Piven's book and also read Debunking Glenn Beck: How to Save America from Media Pundits and Propagandists by Karl Rogers.

Format: Paperback
It was a mistake to put Glen Beck's name on the cover. He was never anything more than a disgusting windbag and now that he has been fired he is completely irrelevant and will soon be forgotten like some third level Nazi of the 1920s.

Format: Paperback
After perusing several pages of this pamphlet I have to wonder why this author isn't locked up in a deep dark hole. I would recommend that anyone who insist on reading this go online to one of the less reputable sites and steal this book since the author doesn't appreciate this country and by all rights doesn't deserve to be enriched with US currency.
