Glenn Beck piggybacks on a famous pamphlet (Common Sense by Thomas Paine) in order to inspire like minded folks to action. This book is part of his successful 9/12 project and details 9 principles and 12 values and further reading that Beck feels would put America "back on course." (p.110)
Beck's book is intended to be a primer for those new to politics. For those of us who have been paying attention all along, there is little new here but it can be interesting reading just to see what Beck focuses on and how he states his positions.
If you are interested in skipping Beck's comments completely and just want to know more about the original Common Sense I recommend 46 Pages: Thomas Paine, Common Sense and the Turning Point to American Independence by Scott Liell.
I rate this book 4 stars out of 5.
