One day in 1957, in the third-grade classroom of St. Brigid's parochial school, an exasperated Sister Mary Lurana bent over a restless young William O'Reilly and said, "William, you are a bold, fresh piece of humanity." Little did she know that she was, early in his career as a troublemaker, defining the essence of Bill O'Reilly and providing him with the title of his brash and entertaining issues-based memoir. And this time it's personal. In his most intimate book yet, O'Reilly goes back in time to examine the people, places, and experiences that launched him on his journey from working-class kid to immensely influential television personality and best-selling author. Listeners will learn how his traditional outlook was formed in the crucible of his family, his neighborhood, his church, and his schools, and how his views on America's proper role in the world emerged from covering four wars on five continents over three-plus decades as a news correspondent. What will delight his numerous fans and surprise many others is the humor and self-deprecation with which he handles one of his core subjects: himself, and just how O'Reilly became O'Reilly.
If you don't like him or his politics then don't read the book. I'm guessing most of the negatives on here have't bothered to read or listen to the book. Go somewhere else to talk about him as a person. This is a place to review his book. As for injecting the election, I think you may have the wrong book. This book is a memoir of Bill OReilly. Get your facts straight at least before you go on crazy rants about your own opinions, which are exactly that, opinions. I think it is a fascinating book. I have a lot of respect for Bill. He is firm about his opinions and will defend them. I admire that.
This book puts some context on the method to the madness. Excellent!
Like him or hate him you will enjoy the book
After listening to this book I wish Bill had run for President because regardless of what you think of him he's honest and truly loves this country. This books give the reader/listener some great and fun insights as to why Bill is Bill.
