4.0 out of 5 stars Culture warrior - an interesting concept - and book, January 2, 2008
This review is from: Culture Warrior (Paperback)
As many others, I have watched the O'Reilly Factor, and typically enjoyed the liveliness of debate, and the presentation of multiple points of view. That being said, I was curious about the book, and am not disappointed.
Bill O'Reilly explains in a very clear headed way what he is trying to achieve (besides money and fame) in his career, and why, and I believe him.
He has a coherent theory about the culture war between these who believe that the spirit of America is great (with a place for some minor fixes, but not a major change), and these who believe America is a bad place, and want to change it to be like the Scandinavian countries.

The book brings a lot of seemingly unconnected issues (the war on Christmas, school vouchers, disregard for parental involvement in school) and ties them together in an interesting way, that even if you do not agree with, causes you to stop and think.

That being said, the book sometimes gets into too many details about personal attacks on Bill, which emphasize that Bill is under attack (it is a war ...), but does not contribute to the main message in the book.

Attacks on Bill? Clinton or O'Reilly?
