Editorial Review

Product Description
The million-copy New York Times bestseller from the Fox News anchor who’s brought new excitement–and massive amounts of populist common sense and rock-solid honesty–to television news.

Now four seasons strong, Bill O’Reilly’s nightly cable news program, “The O’Reilly Factor,” is one of the hottest shows on the air. In book form, The O’Reilly Factor has sold over a million copies and spent fourteen weeks at the top of the New York Times bestseller list. Obviously, Bill O'Reilly has made his mark. His blunt, ironic, no-holds-barred style has earned him a devoted audience–friends and foes alike–who send him five thousand letters every week. And with the wit and intelligence that have made him one of the most talked-about stars in both television and publishing, O’Reilly continues to identify what’s right, what’s wrong, and what’s absurd in the political, social, economic, and cultural life of America.Amazon.com Review
The O'Reilly Factor isn't just the name of Bill O'Reilly's popular talk show on the Fox News Channel anymore--it's also the title of his book, which, appropriately enough, actually reads like a TV show. The narrative rarely proceeds for more than a few paragraphs before a bold-faced "This Just In" or "Bulletin" pops up on the page and breaks the stream of thought--sort of like a commercial interruption. This provides an ideal forum for O'Reilly to sound off on any number of topics with lots of verve but not too much depth. There are breezy chapters here on money, media, religion, race, and sex, among others. O'Reilly dislikes many things, and he isn't shy about sharing his opinions: "SUVs should be immediately outlawed," he rants. Here's O'Reilly on President Clinton: "What a ridiculous waste!" Attorney General Janet Reno is a "ridiculous, incompetent woman" and President Clinton's "primary 'enabler.'"

This is not a subtle book, and its bombastic approach would be even more grating if it weren't for several flashes of self-deprecation, such as when the author shares a negative piece of viewer mail, or when he writes, "In case you haven't noticed, I'm a cocky bastard." Sometimes O'Reilly's put-downs are creative and funny: "If God has a sense of humor, as I believe he does, [Al Sharpton and David Duke] will be sharing a sauna in the netherworld. With one thermostat." And he's good at illustrating his points with outrageous details. In criticizing the bloated federal budget, for instance, he points to these shockers: $230,000 for a study of housefly sex habits, $27,000 for an analysis of why prisoners want to escape, and $100,000 to find out why Americans don't like beets. (To which he replies: "Houseflies mate when no one is looking. Prisoners don't like prison. Beets don't taste good.") O'Reilly is often considered something of a conservative, but he can also play the blue-collar populist: "The rich want us to believe that anyone can make the quantum leap from bowling league to country club by just working a little harder. That's supposed to keep us motivated and quiet." Fans of his TV show will probably appreciate this cantankerous book. --John J. Miller ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars More in your face O'Reilly
Another set of vignettes where O'Reilly sounds off.As with his other books, you either like him or hate him.I do not always agree with him, but he does make several good points.Most liberals will disregard anything he says but most conservatives will nod in agreement.

3-0 out of 5 stars You've Got to Really Like O'Reilly to Read This Book
I was hoping for more political pandering to my conservative side, but the book was entertaining nonetheless as he discussed his likes and dislikes in areas ranging from politics to restaurants.

1-0 out of 5 stars Another Compelling, Must-Ignore Book
Yet again Bill O'Reilly hits the mark with another compelling, must-ignore book. When you think about it (and let's not spin this) there are few contemporary writers more important to ignore than O'Reilly. The man, one must admit, is a giant in his own mind: he was the first to climb Mount Everest (or at least "was there"); fought heroically in the Civil War ("was there," at least, for most of that war's seminal battles); spearheaded the allied attack (and victory) against the Germans in WWII (or at least "was there"): marched with Martin Luther King and, more impressively, wrote most of Dr. King's greatest speeches; and presently holds "the true" world records in the mile, 100 meters and 400 meter hurdles. Regarding the present book, it clearly reflects a Nietzchean consummation of the man's towering grandiosity. And by the way, O'Reilly knew Nietzche, and in fact, "taught the guy most of what he knew."

4-0 out of 5 stars Will make you think.
Good read. While you may not agree with all that he says, it will make you think and what more could you ask.

3-0 out of 5 stars Four star enjoyment, but minus a star because Bill O'Reilly, though entertaining, isn't very likeable
I enjoyed this book (though I only agreed with about half of it), as I do O'Reilly's show (the views of which he expresses I agree with ninety-nine percent of the time, which makes me wonder...).Though Mr. O.'s ideas aren't parallel with Rush Limbaugh's (who I find obnoxious), Bill came off as a self-righteous, arrogant, know-it-all (hope none of those are cliches, as O'Reilly HATES cliches) in this book.I had always pegged Mr. O'Reilly as a conservative Catholic who doesn't aim to be P.C., because that would be ridiculous.

I was wrong.

I learned more about O'Reilly the person in this book than I have from years of tuning into his television program.Though the man has many good qualities, his lack of humility (whenever he referred to himself as "your humble correspondent", he was being sarcastic and sarcasm is a lack of sincerity, or rather a sign of insincerity--not attractive) subtracts from the good, adds to the bad, and as for the ridiculous (political correctness), I will get to that.

I'll start with the bad:

P. 91, O'Reilly states that parents did not interfere with other parents who were maniacs (O'Reilly's word).Hello???That's what's wrong with so many people today, and is probably why so many children back then who were physically and sexually abused and nothing was ever done about it because it simply "wasn't their business".I have a very big problem with that.

Mr. O. believes kids should fear their parents, which is fine (to a point), but never once in this book did he mention that parents should love their children.But then, Mr. O. attended a Catholic school where nuns used the fear of the eternal fires to keep them in line (fear is a great motivator, yes, but love is greater), swatting their palms with a yardstick whenever they misbehaved.I nannied for a toddler years ago and never once had to lay a hand on her or even raise my voice.Time-outs were much more effective.

I had always believed O'Reilly to believe strongly in his church/Church? without condemning other religions, but it seems he doesn't even have a strong belief in God and/or a God.P. 164 he states, "Even if there is no God or Heaven or Hell..."I'm not saying he has to agree with his church, or even Christianity/The Bible a hundred percent of the time to believe in God/a God (even Mother Teresa had her doubts), but to even say if makes me think he doesn't have any faith just because he doesn't know for sure.

P. 102, the author states that he has dated hundreds of women.Eww.Because he doesn't kiss and tell, methinks he has slept with at least half of them (O'Reilly didn't marry till he was in his forties...gee, I wonder why)?I really must wonder, do we really need to know this?I, personally, do not count first dates as dating, and though I am not so arrogant as to assume he thinks the same way, I still think it impossible to date hundreds, even over a course of approximately twenty-five years.

As for the so-called (by him) ridiculous lines found on p. 106, I didn't think too much of him saying to get the telephone number of her best friend if she says, "I'm not that kind of girl."I assume he means a girl who doesn't have sex before marriage, which I think is admirable, partly because it's so rare.O'Reilly believes it perfectly acceptable to live with a person to get to know them first (see p. 113).Talk about tampering with the sacred powers of procreation!The disadvantages of having pre-marital sex far outweighs the advantages, but if two people are already cohabitating (or "shacking up"), then what's the point of getting married at all?It'll happen, people will do whatever they want to do without you or anyone else giving them the green light.

P. 156, this is where O'Reilly gets really P.C.He starts talking about blacks hating whites, whites hating blacks, which is true, but blacks hating whites far outweigh the numbers of whites hating blacks, and I can say this because Barack Obama wouldn't be where he is today if it weren'tfor white votes, he wouldn't be where he is today, but yet, black people vote for him nine to one.Blacks also make up thirteen percent of the population, though they commit thirty percent of the crime (that's more than double their numbers!), seventy percent of black children are born out of wedlock, versus thirty percent of white children, eighty-five percent of interracial marriages end in divorce verses fifty percent of traditional marriages, etc., etc.O'Reilly tries to make it sound like whites are just as racist as blacks, and that is just not true, though there is a lot of reverse racism (i.e. "white guilt"), like whites voting for a black person because they feel that because of slavery, this person is owed, or entitled to the office or position, people wanting to be friends with a black person (a trophy, or token friend) simply because they're black (I encountered this strange behavior in Provo, Utah--very prevalent in the Mormon Church).

P. 167, O'Reilly sounds like some New Age lemming, as he puts it.He states that he felt negative energy in places where he already knew atrocities had occurred, so the preconceived notion was already there.

Now, on to the good.P. 123, O'Reilly states how disappointed he is when he enters a home where children live and there are hardly any books in the house.I agree.I've heard that a third of students, once they graduate college, never open another book, and I cannot help but think all they are missing out on.Children need to be read to, so they will develop a love of storytelling, developing into a love of the written word, whether it be the sports pages or a comic book, the most important thing is that they READ.O'Reilly didn't mention this, but instead of rewarding our children with food, reward them with books, sports equipment, games that make them think, NOT unhealthy snacks.

P. 126, O'Reilly suggests having a map or a globe in your house (which is a fantastic idea, as most people don't even know where Iraq is), using it as a tool to get children interested in the world, not just the world around them.

O'Reilly is right about maintaining friendships (though I have to believe he is one of the few people who still keeps in contact with his childhood buddies), and that liking your job is the most important thing--not how much money you make.

Mr. O. does say (and I am backtracking here) that men should have their (sexual) fantasies, and I say, or rather I quote, "Whosoever looketh upon a woman and lusteth after her hath already committed adultery in his heart."

Now I am not sure what O'Reilly meant by lumping JonBenet Ramsey's parents with O.J. Simpson, but I didn't like it.I believe the Ramseys were innocent and were demonized by the media.It's irresponsible for O'Reilly to make such an insinuation.

I think I've started referring back to the bad in this book, but it's more fun to do so.

It was what I read on p. 195 that made my mouth hang open, because I had NEVER gotten this impression from O'Reilly ever in any of his shows.The subject was abortion.He refers to an unborn baby as a fetus, dehumanizing the child.He goes on to say that "abortion is a lesser evil than interfering with a woman's right to control her own body.I understand that."Now, to be fair, he does say it's brutal and does cheapen life.There he goes, trying to appease both sides, and goes on to mention the actions of some "demented antiabortion activists", whose numbers are far less than those who perform this procedure and the women who allow it to be performed on them.It's like comparing the number of David Duke's followers to the number of Farrakhan's.O'Reilly does not keep things in perspective and so his perception is skewed.

As for the ridiculous, listing "Saturday Night Fever" as good is a travesty.Vulgar language, and John Travolta.Need I say more?

Again, O'Reilly's trying to play on both teams really shows when he talks about how great Jimmy Carter (one of the worst Presidents in United States history) is because he helped with Habitat for Humanity after he left office, whereas Ronald Reagan (who is considered one of the greatest--still not clear why, but then, I was born during his first term) isn't so much because he (supposedly) didn't do any charity work after his tenure.Reagan was also 77 when he left office, but then, who knows what good deeds people commit in secret, not to be seen of men.

Though I wasn't disappointed in the book, I was disappointed in O'Reilly.Still, "The O'Reilly Factor" is an interesting read.My advice is to skip "The No Spin Zone" (which was terrible) and read this one.

P.S.I know I am reviewing this late, and I wonder at all the people who pay full price for new books when I can wait for a few years and get itat less than half price in hardback.Most of the information in here is still relevant seven years later.

And even though I agree with O'Reilly's opinionated opinion on rice cakes, who really cares? ... Read more

Product Description
As a network administrator, architect, or security professional, you need to understand the capabilities, limitations, and risks associated with integrating wireless LAN technology into your current infrastructure.802.11 Wireless Networks: The Definitive Guide provides all the information necessary to analyze and deploy wireless networks with confidence.After a general introduction to wireless networks, this practical book moves quickly into the gory details of the 802.11 standard. Author Matthew Gast offers a clear, no-nonsense guide for using 802.11 on Windows and Linux, using and selecting access points, making deployment considerations, and seeing to 802.11 network monitoring and performance tuning.The final section of the book summarizes the standardization work pending in the 802.11 working group.If you're looking for one source that provides a full spectrum view of 802.11, from the minute details of the specification, to deployment, monitoring, and troubleshooting, this impressive book is worth its weight in gold.Amazon.com Review
Among network designers and administrators, wired Ethernet is a known quantity. Plenty is known about how to build good twisted-pair network infrastructures, how to keep them secure, and how to monitor their excess capacity. Not so for the wireless Ethernet networks (built around the IEEE 802.11x standards)--these hold much more mystery for even experienced network designers. 802.11 Wireless Networks: The Definitive Guide aims to codify the body of knowledge needed to design and maintain wireless local area networks (LANs). The authors succeed admirably in this, covering what installation and administration teams need to know and digging into information of use to driver writers and others working at lower levels.

The only significant detail that's been excluded has to do with security--a notorious weak point of 802.11x LANs. The authors cover the feeble but widely used Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) authentication protocol in detail and devote another whole chapter to 802.1x, which is an emerging authentication scheme based on Extensible Authentication Protocol (EAP). The author has considerable skill in communicating information graphically and does a great job of using graphs to show how communications frequencies shift over time and how conversations among access points and network nodes progress over time. This is indeed an authoritative document. --David Wall

Topics covered: How IEEE 802.11a and 802.11b wireless networks (also known as WiFi networks) work, and how to configure your own. The framing specification is covered well, as are authentication protocols and (in detail) the physical phenomena that affect IEEE 802.11x radio transmissions. There's advice on how to design a wireless network topology, and how to go about network traffic analysis and performance improvement. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Book for Wi-Fi
This is a great book for Wi-Fi system engineers to understand 802.11 a\b\g PHY and MAC. The book not only talks about theoretical stuff but also gives practical aspects of Wi-Fi networking.

5-0 out of 5 stars Brilliant explanation of 802.11 protocols and standards
This is indeed the definitive guide on 802.11 networks. Chapters on 802.1x, 802.11i, a/b/g/n standards and network analysis were simply brilliant. I skipped quite a few chapters such as the one on modulation schemes and details of the PHY layer; maybe some day when I get additional time I will go through it again. A great book.

5-0 out of 5 stars Artur 's 802.11 Definitive Guide Review
It's really amazing position for professionals and everyone who wants to get deep knowledge about 802.11 a/b/g/n world.

4-0 out of 5 stars great book
Very good book lots of details on every wireless standard.I would recommend this book to anybody who wants to learn wireless networking.

4-0 out of 5 stars Very practical, little theory
This book serves as a good, practical, "how-to" guide.The first 9 chapters are a
"TCP/IP Illustrated"-style detailed look at the low-level details of 802.11, covering the format of every packet involved, when each packet is used, what each format means and how configuration parameters on both the sending and the receiving side will affect the individual packets.This is by far the most detailed, and most useful, section of the book.

Chapters 10-13, which attempt to address the theoretical side of wireless networks (and 802.11 in particular), rush through the subject far too quickly to be of any practical value - if you have a very strong grounding in electromagnetic wave theory, you might get something from this section, but if that's the case, there's probably nothing here you don't already know.The author clearly knows what he's talking about, but he tried to cram an entire book worth of material into about 100 pages.(In his defense, he acknowledges this toward the start of the section).

The remainder of the book talks about specifics of installations and looks at Windows, Mac and Linux and examines various different hardware specifications for each.This part was interesting, but hopelessly out of date (I can't imagine how anybody could write about this topic and not be out of date before the ink dried on the print).

Missing was any coverage of WPA and WPA2.Chapter 6 talks a bit about EAP and LEAP;
I suspect that WPA & WPA2 were still undergoing standardization as this book was being written.Still, the content of the book gave me enough understanding of the building blocks of 802.11 networks to make sense of the IEEE documentation on WPA. ... Read more

I couldn't put this book down until I had finished reading it!!I went to look for the rest of the books in this mystery series, and found there were no more.WHY?I hope someone gives this author a contract.The characters were loveable and competent, there were amusing moments, mayhem, mystery and romance.It was action packed, and I really wanted to read more about these characters.Must I resort to writing "fan fiction"?

My daughter read this first and gave it to me to read because she said "this is such a good book, I couldn't put it down!" I read it myself in one sitting. I sincerely hope, for myself, and my daughter, that S. Alden Reilly writes more of these great Stella Jones/Chev Fortuna Mysteries. They (Stella & Cheverly) are two of the best women teams ever!
PLEASE write more of these books!!!!!

3-0 out of 5 stars A Publishing Collision
The story begins slowly but picks up steam and the beginning content is fair.There are many notable passages that make up for the forementioned problems, but these isolated notable lines of verse actually become a distraction and seemed to stop the flow of the story. The novel is short and perhaps the intent was to slow the pace of the story and make it last longer. Some novels can be too fast moving and you miss much and have to go back and read them again.

I read a great deal and I'm curious why this affects me and not the others who have posted here. Therefore I'll put the blame on me and say that I'm too accustomed to reading longer, faster paced novels.

5-0 out of 5 stars Well-Written and Fun!
S. Alden Reilly has written a book that made me feel good. "The
Phoenix" is upbeat and refreshing.The author's humor is subtle and fast-paced.
"...Out of the corner of my eye I saw Layne fishing around in her duffle bag.God, I thought, she's going to shoot
"She pulled out a small black object that looked like a cordless phone and hissed into it..."
I'll keep this book to read again and again.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great characters in a swift story
The Phoenix is a terrific book, told by a charming lead character who goes through a remarkable transformation as she takes action to solve a mystery and reconcile her confused feelings for her late husband. There were many amusing moments -- all woven perfectly into a swift story. The action scenes were strikingly well-written. S. Alden Reilly is very talented, and exceptionally skilled in capturing the details that bring characters to life. This is the start of a great series. ... Read more

Editorial Review

Product Description
There's no one more blunt, more opinionated, or more outspoken than the average teen. Except, of course, Bill O'Reilly, veteran star journalist, anchor of the most watched cable news program on TV, New York Times bestselling author, husband, father of two and former teacher.

In his latest book, O'Reilly talks straight to the readers most likely to appreciate his direct style -- teens. To be sure he's addressing their most pressing concerns, he responds to actual letters from kids who tune in to his radio and TV shows regularly and collaborates with an award-winning former high school teacher and college professor Charles Flowers.

If you're a kid and you're listening to this audio, consider sharing it with your parents -- they'll understand you better.

If you're a parent and you're listening to this audio, definitely share it with your kids -- you'll sleep better.

5-0 out of 5 stars should be required reading to graduate from High School.
The O'Reilly Factor for Kids: A Survival Guide for America's Families

If I were King, this would be required reading to graduate from High School.
Don't think for a nanosecond that it is political, it isn't, I promise that if your child reads this book they won't necessarily vote Republican (as I'm sure my Sister thinks).
I'm sending all my children (they are all adults now) a copy with the following message:


Please read this yourself and then give it to_______ when you think he/she is ready for it.I suggest ages 10-15.

Gunner (Actually I use my real name.)

I highly recommend this book for all THINKING PARENTS who want their children to grow up to be WISE. Also, I recommend their parents to read it before the child, Why would any responsible parent let their child read something and they not know what's in it?

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent backup for what you teach your kids
I thought this book was great and my nephews (ages 12 and 14) and my niece (age 15) loved it. It's got practical advice for dealing with adolescent and pre-adolescent problems which can seem overwhelming at that age.For kids in this age range, it is incredibly difficult to think and act independently of your peers even when you are sure what they are doing is wrong (drugs, bullying, stupid stunts, etc.).This book backs up most parental advice and helps give the kids some objective verification that they can do the right thing even when it means standing up for themselves and away from their peers.Very glad I bought it.

That said, I am amused by those reviewers who think that no one should write an advice book for kids unless their own lives have been blameless.If that were true, there would be NO advice books for kids since all of us are human and all of us make mistakes.Mr. O'Reilly uses some of his own mistakes as examples and kids can clearly see by this how to learn from their own inevitable mistakes.Knowing how to learn from your mistakes is every bit as important as trying not to make them in the first place.I note that most negative reviews come from people who seem unable to separate Mr. O'Reilly's clear helpful advice to kids from his political views.Politics are not in this book.

5-0 out of 5 stars We love this book!
We love this book it covers all the same things we have as parents.Our kids watch the Factor with us in the evening before heading to bed.I believe the message hits home harder since they see him on T.V. and now they are reading his book.

5-0 out of 5 stars What a Great Gift
I bought this for my 14 year old nephew and I was in doubt if he would read it. However he read it from cover to cover and he has used some of the ideas O'Reilly offers already. He told me that the parts on approaching parents and handling them was especially useful and hasearnt him Brownie points!

5-0 out of 5 stars A must for your teenager

O'Reilly writes with much insight into teenage growing problems and how to counteract and solve said problems.Should be required reading for all adolescents. ... Read more
