Threadbare plot is device for political exposition. Criticizes Government control and propaganda. When the book was published in 2010 under Obama, Liberal reviewers ridiculed its warning of dangerous, predatory Government. What would they say now?

Sounds like the comments here are from folks who have ADHD or have a 6th grade reading level or, most likely, from folks who have a progressive political viewpoint. The book is typical of the thriller genre and reads very well. For those who would rather read about the country's fiscal problems, I would recommend his book called, "Broke." All facts and figures are referenced for your enjoyment. You won't see this data on the evening news or the progressive print or internet rags. He goes off the deep end sometimes, but the facts and figures are undeniable if one is intellectually honest. Back to the book -- it's OK, but I'd rather read Brad Thor.

I listened to audiobook version and enjoyed it. It wasn't necessarily the best book I ever read, but it was a fascinating story. It's probably not a good book for those who could care less about politics. It was confusing at first, and the slight romance subplot (I won't go any further because of spoiler issues) wasn't really my cup of tea. As a whole though, I'd have to say it was a interesting and entertaining read, or in my case, listen.

Why would anyone read or listen to
this raving man?

I listen to/watch Glenn Beck as often as possible, and I am a fan, but I couldn't get through the first chapter of this confusing mess of a book. It was just too much of a Beck superfan/insider-only book for my liking. I've read other books that he's written and found them to be good, but he best leave the fiction to someone else, man. I heard him say on the radio program that he hopes that the book gives the reader as many sleepless nights reading it as it cost him writing it. He should have slept instead.

Terrible mess of a book. Not worth the paper it is printed on. Read something else, anything else instead of wasting your time on this semi-coherent pile of garbage.

I'm not entirely sure what "The Overton Window" is about- or what the point of the novel is- aside from seeming to want to impart a general message of fear and confusion. To call Beck's foray into thriller writing incoherent may be giving it more credit than it deserves. A large chunk of the story seems to be dedicated to telling the reader why they should not watch or listen to Glenn Beck. I wish there was a way to get the five hours of my life I spent reading "The Overton Window" back.
