The O'Reilly Factor for Kids by Bill O'Reilly and Charles Flowers

From the back cover: There's no one more blunt, more opinionated, or more outspoken than the average teen. Except, of course, Bill O'Reilly, veteran star journalist, anchor of the most watched cable news program on TV, New York Times bestselling author, husband, father of two and former teacher.

In this book, O'Reilly talks straight to the readers most likely to appreciate his direct style -- teens. To be sure he's addressing their most pressing concerns, he responds to actual letters from kids who tune in to his radio and TV shows regularly and collaborates with an award-winning former high school teacher and college professor Charles Flowers.

This title is weird. Although the book is aimed at teens, the title says "for kids." That threw me off when I initialy saw the book. However, once I read the summary on the back of the book I was interested in what I would think of what Mr. O'Reilly had to say.

Overall, not bad. In fact, I didn't even talk to the book, as I sometimes do when I disagree with something he says on TV. I can't really say that I completely disagree with anything he had to say in this book. He even managed to surprise me with his view on teen sex.

The O'Reilly Factor for Kids does give some sound advice that help teens out if they're of a mind to listen to it. It definitely got me thinking!
