    This book is essentially a collection of his opinions expressed in the segment of the same name from his former show on Fox News. The opinions are not academic and, while they do not fall to the level of bad taste, they are only slightly more substantive than workplace gossip or simple name calling. Fans of O'Reilly's show will probably like the book, though they won't see much that they haven't already seen on the show. Detractors of O'Reilly will probably not care for the book. Overall it does its job fairly well, which is to provide a partisan perspective on mostly political figures in a conversational and sometimes tongue-in-cheek manner. It's broken down to be easily consumed in short segments and may serve as a conversation starting book should you have it out in your sitting room. I cannot, however, vouch for the pleasantness of the ensuing conversation.

    Bill O'Reilly political commentary on current and past patriots and pinheads. If you are a regular viewer of The Factor there is little new in this book.
  • (4/5)
    Well-written, well-balanced book about our current situation in this country and our current president. My only disagreement with this book is that O'Reilly was too soft on our current Follower-In-Chief.

    I thought Bill's arguments were simplistic, but about right for the average level of understanding on USA politics. He provided sufficient analysis to be credible, but not enough to drone on and on. With a TV show and many books, you have to wonder if he has a personal life? In one chapter, he opined on historic characters--the concepts are well known: Willard Hotel used as President US Grant's watering hole--he was attached by "lobbyists" after tipping a few...e.g. Good chapter. It's well known that things that happen inside the DC beltway are unique in the world and don't reflect reality except in that limited circumstance. I used this book as a glimpse inside the current administration and I think that O'Reilly was fair in his judgements. Surprised me in a couple of cases. The audiobook, with author and narrator the same, sounds somewhat like his TV show. Yes he is arrogant. Since he's an entertainer, it's all about ratings and sales---makes you feel sheep dipped for the purchase--glad I got it from a library. If I want more O'Reilly, I'll probably watch his TV show...oh, you need cable for that? Sorry, Bill,no cable in my house!

    I listened to the audiobook version of Patriot or Pinhead, narrated by Bill O'Reilly. Because the author was narrating, it sounded much like his television show. I really enjoyed the concept of the novel, where he analyzed the first eighteen months of the Obama administration as well as looking at contemporary people as well as people throughout history to analyze whether they qualify into the category of patriot or pinhead. What I most enjoyed about the book is the level of research that O'Reilly put into his opinions. These weren't knee-jerk reactions. He put a good deal of analysis, and used a fair-handed approach. For the individuals and situations he commented on, he usually gave positive and negatives, with the exception of Jane Fonda, who made his pinhead hall of fame.I thoroughly enjoyed the way he broke down such people as Lassie, Marilyn Monroe, Robert Kennedy, and some of our past presidents. When he analyzed JFK, he gave some strong positives and some negatives, showing that there are generally two sides to a coin, and things aren't always black and white. The book was both entertaining and informative, and regardless of your political affiliation, worth reading.Carl Alves - author of Blood Street

    Thsi book was not as good as Bold Fresh and Culture Warriors which were excellent.
  • (5/5)
    He is obviously a Patriot, with an exceptional understanding of his own Pinheadedness. Keep right on writing Bill.
