I just want to start out by saying (whether you agree or not - that's up to you, of course) that I am a Liberal (note that I do not say Democrat) and I'm VERY against Baby Bush - but that I DID NOT LIKE this book much.
To me, Moore's arguments are not that well thought out, his logic and arguments are disjointed and hop from subject to subject like a frightened rabbit, and you have to buy the separate "official reader" to get the actual FACTS that he claims are in the book. Now, through some independent research, I do know that much of what he says is true or based on truth - but much of it is also conjecture - and he does not do us, the reader, the courtesy of telling us which he is stating at any given time - basically everything is represented as 100% factual!
IF YOU WANT A MUCH BETTER BOOK complete with FACTS and SOURCES try AL FRANKEN'S LIES and the LYING LIARS WHO TELL THEM, A FAIR AND BALANCED LOOK AT THE RIGHT...it is scrupulously researched (with all sources almost ridiculously detailed), logical in its flow from one idea to the next, and is also a good bit funnier and more well written. After seeing Moore's movie, I was VERY disappointed in the book, which I hoped would be just as good - but just didn't deliver for me!

Helpful Score: 2
Come one come all those who dispise the plague running the country. Dude where's my country is more of the witty response to just this from the Famed Michael Moore. I loved this book personally always a laugh with Michael Moore.
FROM THE PUBLISHER
Michael Moore is on a mission in his new book: Regime Change. The man who slithered into the White House on tracks greased by his daddy's oil buddies is one of many targets in Mike's blistering follow-up to his smash #1 hit Stupid White Men, the biggest-selling nonfiction book of the year. Now no one is safe: corporate barons who have bilked millions out of their employees' lifetime savings, legislators who have stripped away our civil liberties in the name of "homeland security," and even that right-wing brother-in-law of yours (yes, we all have one) who manages, year after year, through his babbling idiocy, to ruin Thanksgiving dinner.
