Summary
  • "Glenn Beck provides stories of the people who [in his view] built America and the people who sought to destroy it"--
  • The people who made America were entrepreneurs and visionaries whose selflessness propelled us forward... and charlatans and fraudsters whose selfishness nearly derailed us. Beck brings both of these groups to life with stories written to put you right in the middle of the action
Summary
