Bill O’Reilly’s New Book: Keep It Pithy
Host of The O’Reilly Factor on Fox News and bestselling author Bill O’Reilly discussed his new book of observations, Keep It Pithy. “The world is changing in very profound ways,” Bill said. His new book talks about these changes, “some good, a lot bad,” and offers possible solutions to problems arising from these changes.
One of the problems Bill mentions is the idea that our culture is a tough climate for kids because of their reliance on computers and other machines. “It’s immediate gratification without effort,” he said. “It’s an addiction. Kids don’t want to go outside, don’t want to make friends, don’t want to get dirty.” He went on to explain that this addiction can take over the whole family.
This is one of the many issues that he discusses in Keep It Pithy, a book that he said is more common sense solutions to problems than lecturing about our country’s problems. He also recalls stories for comedic relief, such as the time he spent “the longest car ride of [his] life” with Elton John. Keep It Pithy is available for purchase now.

He said that it’s not his career that he’s most proud of, it’s what he has been able to do off his career that makes him most proud.
