Folks, the guy has clout. After mentioning our book on his radio show yesterday (and, I think, again today), then TV show, Patriot’s History has climbed up to #35 on Amazon, its all time high. Thanks to all of you, and thank, you Commissar Beck!!
I watched the Glen Beck program when it aired and found Dr. Schweikart and the other scholars at the round table discussion very refreshing and succinctly clear in the way that they articulated the roots of progressivism and how they described progressivism. After the program I went to Amazon and ordered 2 of Dr. Schweikart’s books for starters as well as ordering the books written by RJ Pestritto on Woodrow Wilson and Folsom’s book on FDR. If anyone missed the show, believe me it was definitely one the best on Beck, if not the best.
I saw the show w/ You, and the other 2 “eggheads”, and I heard Glenn talk about the book on his radio show. I am going to buy this today!!! keep up the great work, please…
Hey, all us eggheads are not alike: Burt is a scrambled egghead, I’m fried.
I too heard Glenn mention the book on the air today. I’ve rarely been disappointed by anything he recommends. I am presently reading America’s Prophet, and am truly stunned by what I didn’t know prior to picking up this book. Same could be said of The Five Thousand Year Leap, or Antony Beevor’s D-Day. Remarkable books.
SO long as Glenn doesn’t pull an Oprah and promote a book full of lies, his recommendations to me are taken to heart. I look forward to reading your book.
I did not is the show, but I just down loaded the book for my Ipod.
Look forward to listening to the book.

I heard about the book from Glenn Beck. I can not wait to read it. Amazon has shipped it.
Aw, I could have had you ship it to my house, autograph it for you, then send it along!
Heard about your book tonight and am going to use it for our homeschool next year. Can’t wait to read it and compare it to what we’ve learned so far. Blessing!
This is my next book. I also heard about it from Glenn. Should I send it to you first?
Watched Beck yesterday and heard about your book. Can’t wait to purchase many of your books! Thank you for all the hard work you’ve done to educate our nation! God bless!
Just ordered a patriots history of the United States after watching the Beck spot.
Cant wait to dig in.
I heard and saw Beck’s mention of your book yesterday and so added it to the Amazon order I was compiling because I have been wanting to study more into US history. On a whim I went back to Amazon to see if it had made the top 10 bestsellers and sure enough your book is #1 as of right now! Can’t wait to receive your book and start reading it.
After watching the interview on Glen Beck, your book will be purchased tomorrow (If there are any left on the shelf), and after reading will pass on to my husband and son. Thank you for the history lesson in advance.
I saw you on Beck and ordered your book. As soon as I saw you on his show I realized that I had you as a professor at UD in college! I am very excited to read this book! My husband is Air Force and we’ve been very hesitant to send our kids to school outside of the home. But after hearing of UD professors now is leaning towards sending our kids there!
Hey Larry, so if I have mine shipped to your house can I have it signed or was that offer only for Ryan?
Unfortunately I am never home in time to watch Mr. Beck’s show but I listen to him, Pat and Stu on the radio everyday. I heard him mention your book on the show yesterday (February 9) and I am heading to the bookstore to purchase a copy on my lunch hour. I look forward getting into it. I may get a copy for a friend as well.
As an aside, I tried to contact Mr. Beck about how I might be able to veiw the TV show with the “egghead” historians but as you might expect, he is very busy. Could you maybe point me in the right direction?
Just ordered the book from Amazon.com.
Knowledge is a powerful weapon. Time to put it to good use and let history speak for itself.
Thank you Glenn Beck,if you had not spoken up for America and the Constitution the progressives would be well on their of taking over the USA. I tevo your program every day do not miss and hour, I have learned more history in the last year from you than I ever knew. I am 77 years old and my Dad told me FDR was bad, but never told me why.I ordered A Patriots History of the United States on Kindle!!!!
Accolades ! I don’t aggrandize individuals (we have enough of that in our culture), but I’ve been waiting for decades for major media person(s) to stand up and call things for what they really are, and both you and Beck are doing it beyond my wildest hopes ! Long, long overdue. It’s time to call the ‘progressives’ out for who they really are and expose their lies ! Every Congressional incumbent should be thrown out and replaced with a fresh face, conservative libertarian strict-constitutionalist. This federal autocracy must be rolled back. The same goes for the supreme court. The so-called justices should be publicly called to resignation. Without a day to waste. Beck and his guests are right on the mark in stating that the remaining time to stop these would-be dictators is growing very short.
Again, kudos on an unrivaled and honest accounting of American history and hopefully being key to our salvation.
heard about your book on mr. beck’s program. will definitely buy! i love your teacher support materials also.
i just found out that you will be speaking at the Midwest Homeschool Convention in April in Cincinnait, OH~ Fantastic!! i am a huge glenn fan and my interest was piqued about your book…
now i know it is a MUST BUY!!
how do i get that autograph, again?
Watched Glen talk about this book several times! Now its time to order one! It looks “Big, Thick & Juicy”! Can’t wait to sink my teeth into it! I love History!!
Well since my original comment isn’t getting approved I’l take that as a no. How about I cancel my order on Amazon and just send you the money to your PayPal and then you can send me an autographed version? It’s on backorder anyways…
I had saved it on Amazon and went back today to order it and it says it is no longer available on Amazon. Will it be back on Amazon? Is there somewhere else I can get it at a discount?
The incredible deluge of orders caught our publisher short—they were already bumping up production by 15,000 after the first Beck appearance, and have bumped it up another 50,000 after he mentioned the book. We weren’t helped by two snow days when everything (including warehouses in the East) was shut down. We are getting reports from all over the country of back orders, but the publisher is on it and we hope to have it fixed in two weeks. Thanks for patience. It will be worth it.
Cody, it takes a while for the comment notifier to be sent to my e-mail, and for me to look at it, approve it, whatever.
Glenn Beck is helping to rekindle the fire in the bellies of the American people. He directed me to this site and your book. I can’t wait to get it in and am excited about re-learning the true history of MY COUNTRY.
I was lucky enough to be take a Civil War class with Dr. Schweikart at UD. Now I wish I had taken more of his courses. Now hearing his books are blowing up and getting recoginized by Beck and others is great. If you have a high school student an education at Dayton is great and there are other profs like him.
I ordered your book as soon as Glenn mentioned it the first time and am currently reading it. What a blessing to get the truth of American history and trust what you’re reading instead of wading through the revised, slanted versions that are so prevalent! Thanks so much.
Is there a book or textbook on world history that you would recommend??? Thanks!
Like the 77 year old, I am 74 – and my dad also told me that FDR was the worst thing that happened to the USA! He was a life long life insurance salesman, and told me in the 1940′s that Social Security was a Ponzi scheme that would eventually blow up. How right he was!
I also heard about this book and Prof Schweikart on Glenn Beck, and am very appreciative of both of their efforts to educate the American people. I also TVO Glenn and rarely miss a show.
By the way, another show worth TIVOing is John Stossel’s on Fox Business.
After Glenn mentioned the book on his Fox TV show it jumped to number 1 on Amazon and as of today its still #4. Ive begun reading it and its an Awesomely done History. I wish I had had it to use as a reference when I was teaching 7th grade American History. When I was teaching it I had to refer to text books written in the 50s to get an objective presentation.
Your book stands on its own–it is awesome! Keep it up!!
I came here from one of those social bookmarking sites, this is a nice blog, keep up the good work.
I big fan of http://www.patriotshistoryusa.com/blog/behold-the-power-of-beck/, Greetings from Panama.
I’m impressed, I have to say. Actually hardly ever do I encounter a weblog that’s each educative and entertaining, and let me inform you, you will have hit the nail on the head. Your thought is excellent; the issue is something that not sufficient individuals are talking intelligently about. I’m very completely happy that I stumbled throughout this in my search for something regarding this.
