Glenn Beck--author of thirteen #1 New York Times bestsellers--issues a startling challenge to people on both sides of the aisle to give up our addiction to outrage.

America is addicted to outrage, we're at the height of a twenty-year bender, and we need an intervention. In Addicted to Outrage, New York Times bestselling author Glenn Beck addresses how America has become more and more divided--both politically and socially. Americans are now less accepting, less forgiving, and have lost faith in many of the country's signature ideals, he says. We are quick to point a judgmental finger at the opposing party, are unwilling to doubt their own ideologies, and refuse to have any self-awareness whatsoever. Beck states that our current downward spiral will ultimately lead to the destruction of everything America has fought so hard to preserve. This is not simply a Republican problem. This is not simply a Democratic problem. This is everyone's burden, and we need to think like recovering addicts and change.

With a nod to a traditional twelve-step program, each chapter encourages self-reflection and growth and shows us the way to a more hopeful, happy future. Beck draws from his own life experiences and includes relevant examples for each step, from families who learned to forgive killers to remembering to believe in something greater than ourselves to understanding the importance of humility. Addicted to Outrage is a timely and necessary guide for how Americans, right and left, must change to survive.

Reality check: Trump lost the popular vote (by nearly 3 million votes).

I don't like his personality and his radio show but this book is spot on. It reveals a lot of the peer influenced idolatry on the Left, their inability to comprehend corruption, and their addiction to outrage-as-an-argument.

Beck reveals information so dangerous and hardcore that he has had to label it as fiction just like Orwell and Huxley did when they were trying to tell the public about the elite's admitted plans. I'm referring to his other, fictional books not this one.

Is he offering us drugs or candy on the cover? Maybe both?

You don't need to read the book when you already know the author is a conspiracy theory moron.

Wow people rated this book before it came out. Prejudging is one of the greatest problems in our society. Read it, research it and decide based on the facts.

As PT Barnum said: "No one has ever lost money underestimating the intelligence of the American public." Minus one stars.
