I have a blunt yardstick I use to judge humans on this Earth: You either make the world a better place or a worse place. If you make it better, you're on my team. If you make it worse, I don't want to have anything to do with you. This book reinforced my opinion that O'Reilly makes my world a better place. Is he an egotistical so-and-so? Yeah, probably. But that doesn't stop him from fighting for what's right. I'm glad he's on my team, because I sure wouldn't want him for an enemy.
I bought the Kindle version of this book to read it on my Amazon Kindle. The experience was so positive that I bought the book (and the Kindle!) for my mom for Christmas.
First I must admit that I initially assumed that the title implied that 'bold' and 'fresh' were adjectives used in a self-congratulatory kind of way. It soon became apparent that it was meant as an admonition by the strict authoritarian figures who were Bill's early mentors. To be clear, Bold was not something you wanted to be perceived as in a classroom run by a nun. Fresh... even worse still. It implies a sense of disrespect for the authoritarian.
Both traits, however, are needed more than ever in a society that has done it's best to stifle and destroy independent thought and critical thinking.
I was especially pleased for an insight into the mind and persona of O'Reilly. I don't always agree with O'Reilly on his opines, but I always respect and admire his critical analysis and professional apoproach to topics he covers. I appreciate the way he holds to task those who are less than straight forward with their agenda and actions.
This is a good read that will inspire you to be more involved in your world and reveal the cards of those who would abuse your best interests.
