It is the book’s 16th straight week on the list.
ARGUING WITH IDIOTS is Beck’s fourth consecutive NYT #1 bestseller and Beck is one of only a handful of authors to have reached #1 on both the fiction and non-fiction New York Times lists.
ARGUING WITH IDIOTS is the first hardcover title released under Beck’s groundbreaking partnership with Simon and Schuster to publish a wide range of fiction and non-fiction books for all age groups.
Using his trademark straightforward approach, Glenn Beck shows readers how to influence everyone within earshot using actual facts and common sense. Packed with humor, illustrations, and informative sidebars loaded with well-researched facts, ARGUING WITH IDIOTS arms readers with the knowledge and know-how for handling any argument.
While Beck entered the media world as a DJ at the tender age of 13, everything changed when he found a new vision of his career – talk radio. In 2002, he launched The Glenn Beck Program on just 47 stations with the mission to make listeners "feel goodness from my show and accept me for who I am, flaws and all." Nothing has been the same since.
Today, just a few years later, his radio show can be heard across the country on over 400 stations, his television show sets ratings records, his books reach the top of bestseller lists and he travels across the country performing his live stage show to sold-out audiences. Across all of these mediums, Beck connects with his fans in a whole new way, inspiring and entertaining them with his humor, hard-hitting interviews and honest tales about his life.
