The Overton Window by Glenn Beck

June 21st, 2010 · 1 Comment

An interesting political thriller, Glenn Beck’s “The Overton Window” is a book that showcases an extreme scenario in the US. I read it on the Kindle.

From the book’s description: “There is a powerful technique called the Overton Window that can shape our lives, our laws, and our future. It works by manipulating public perception so that ideas previously thought of as radical begin to seem acceptable over time. Move the Window and you change the debate. Change the debate and you change the country.”

The book is currently #1 on the Amazon sales charts.

    Overton window is so applied in every walk of life … we do it with our kids when we go for shopping for them.

    We do it in the office … when it is salary rise … we do it every time with the budget … (announce the scariest one and then relax it a bit to the worst ).

    It holds good for a nation in the hands of policy makers we well.
