Glenn Beck recommends the writings of former FBI Special Agent (and John Birch Society endorser and JBS speaker) W. Cleon Skousen.
See:http://www.salon.com/news/feature/2009/09/16/beck_skousen/index.html

In fact, Glenn Beck wrote the "Foreward" to the 2009 edition of Skousen's best-selling book, The 5000 Year Leap

However, both Cleon Skousen and his admirers have misrepresented Skousen's FBI background and inflated his credentials.

Some, like the John Birch Society, claim that Skousen was a "top aide" to J. Edgar Hoover [See, for example, JBS Bulletin, January 1968, page 1] OR that Skousen was an "administrative assistant" to Hoover.
Others claim that Skousen had extensive investigative experience while he served in the FBI -- particularly with respect to internal security-related matters.

But ALL of these claims are utter falsehoods.

Furthermore, senior FBI officials expressed very derogatory judgments about Skousen's post-FBI endeavors.

In fact, they scornfully described him as someone who allied himself with "professional anti-communists" who represented the "extreme right" in our country and FBI officials thought Skousen was misusing his FBI service to falsely claim expertise in subject matters which he did not possess.

For a detailed 26-page report (recently updated) on Skousen which is based, primarily, upon his FBI personnel file, see:
