Books - Book Review - Who's Looking Out for You? - Bill O'Reilly
Give this book to any idealist who believes that government and social programs can solve ALL problems. (Yes, we do need the governments for a lot of things, like roads, rules, leevees - I just want some that don't break -, and other big issues).
Also, corporations, role models, charities, bad support systems won't solve your problems either.
O'Reilly advocates family support, and if they fail you, then find good friends who will tell you the truth and guide you well.
He also presents examples of people, companies, and agencies who really don't care about the little person. And uses his own life as examples of what NOT to do and end up having no friends. Learning how to be a team player at work was really hard for him.
Some of the political and cultural references are a bit out of date, but once I remembered them, they were good examples of bad role models or very selfish people, who cheated others and seemed to have no regrets.
