“Who's Looking Out for You?” is an autobiographical book written by Bill O'Reilly. Although this book was published over seven years ago, its information still holds true today. The book was written to make people aware that most people and businesses in America do not have your best interests in mind when making decisions.


The book is divided into 10 chapters, which are all somewhat related. However, each one takes on a different problem. Every chapter includes a bit of advice from O'Reilly that he has learned from making mistakes and personal experience. As O'Reilly says, "My success is built on three foundations: personal discipline, education and persistence." 


I thoroughly enjoyed reading this. It was an informative and eye-opening book. It has made me question the government's honesty and decision-making. I would recommend this book to all older and more mature readers.
