I believe that this book is great to anyone interested in politics.

This book can be enjoyed by liberals and conservatives alike. With Michael Moore considered to be from the extreme left, it is an eye-opening experience into the ideology that has taken over the once effective Democrat Party.

It only gets worse, Mike. This apparently came out around August, 2001, so he doesn't write as much about terrorism as he does later. I'd agree with Alexandra, below, his themes come off better in a movie than in a book, this was too unfocussed and ranting for me.

Michael Moore's mission is to ruffle as many feathers as possible, and with his latest manifesto, Stupid White Men, he's done an admirable job. Moore, known as both a filmmaker and a bestselling author, takes on our current and former presidents, corporate America, and the judicial system in this irreverently witty, no-holds-barred look at the state of the nation.

Although he has some intriguing ideas along with a sense of humor, he's no writer. His movies are much better.
