What Ivy League university has made Miracles & Massacres required reading?

Glenn’s new book Miracles and Massacres: True and Untold Stories of the Making of America is history as you’ve never heard it told. It’s incredible events that you never knew existed presented in a way that is both true and thrilling. Glenn hoped the book would offer children and adults alike a look into both the good and bad of American history, and it looks like at least one college professor is recommending his students read the book.

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

On radio this morning, Glenn shared a note he received from a Yale University physics professor, who has made the chapter on Edison and Westinghouse required reading for his undergraduate Energy, Technology, and Society course because “it summarizes well what [he] has read in the more formal and dryly written literature.”

“Can you imagine going to Yale and going to the library because you now had to go and buy this book, or you have to go check it out of the library and read this chapter,” Glenn asked.

“You’d be Googling: Is there another Glenn Beck,” Stu joked.

“Good for this professor… He [did] his homework. He knows the truth… I wanted to make sure that I could say what university it was, but he wrote last week and he said, you know, ‘The problem is I can’t get kids interested in it. I can’t get anybody interested in the Tesla Edison story because everything is written so boring’… It’s one of the best stories!”

Edison vs. Westinghouse is just one of 12 stories in Miracles and Massacres that explains history in a way you probably haven’t heard before, but, as Pat explained, Americans must learn the truth.

“[It] puts a whole different spin on Thomas Edison, sadly,” Pat said. “But, you know, you’ve got to know the truth.”

    Fantastic !!

    Glenn is NOT rewriting History,he is revealing History that has been surpressed.

    Well we all know that professor is going to be looking for work because we all know the tolerant left will never let one of Glenn’s books on their universities because some how that would be a hate crime.

    Tesla’s story was not suppressed. It is well known. Heck, the History channel, not known for it’s depth, even went over it in “The Men Who Made America” which aired a year or so ago.

    Hilarious. Beck trashes higher learning as a bastion of evil and communism for years and years but when one misguided professor has his students read a few pages from Beck’s latest book others wrote and Beck puts his name on, he just can’t wait to brag up a storm about it. BTW, I’m glad my copy arrived – just in time too!
