The O'Reilly Factor For Kids: A Survival Guide For America'S Families

The bestselling author ofThe O'Reilly Factor, The No Spin Zone, and Who's Looking Out for You? talks straight to kids this time. He is as demanding, direct, and wry asever-but he's also more revealing too, sharing candid snapshots of his own childhood throughout.Bill O'Reilly, a former schoolteacher, now an award-winning broadcast news journalist, husband, and father of two, joins forces with an experienced educator to bring you, America's youth, a code of ethics by which to live.In this latest book, Bill takes to task bullies, cheaters, advertisers who target you irresponsibly, and parents who fight for their children to win undeserved honors instead of earning them on their own merit.He lays bare the unvarnished truths about sex, money, smoking, drugs, alcohol, and friends. What he has to say about these issues may very well surprise you. He offers coping devices for those enduring a divorce, struggling with teacher, parent, or sibling relationships, and planning their futures. He also shares wisdom on such subjects as death, politics, and God.Whether you take the tests he's provided, take the advice he doles out, or just take a cue from the personal stories he shares, you're bound to make smarter choices in your life, and that's all Bill asks for.From School Library JournalGrade 6 Up-Advice on issues that confront today's teenagers is given in a confident manner by the talk-show host. Factual information supports personal, no-nonsense guidance in navigating life's various challenges on the road to adulthood. Examples from the author's life further augment the points being made, illustrating both triumphs and mistakes, and their natural consequences. Content adequately covers relationships, sex, music, school, and philosophical reflections that will aid teenagers in developing their unique identities and value systems. Each of the four sections concludes with Instant Message-style remarks about wise behavior ("A Smart Operator is a kid who?") versus unwise behavior ("A Pinhead is a kid who?"). The theme is that young people who follow the guide and work hard, are honest, and help others will succeed and lead healthier, happier lives. The authoritative tone will appeal to O'Reilly's fans, but will not engage adolescents who are not eager for advice from an adult whom they do not consider to be a role model. The table of contents provides an organized overview of the material.-Sharon A. Neal, Immaculata University, PACopyright
