From the director of "Fahrenheit 9/11" and author of "Stupid White Men", Michael Moore's "Dude, Where's My Country?" is an instruction manual for taking back America from corrupt corporations and crooked politicians. He's the man everyone's talking about. He's taken on gun freaks, stupid white men and corporate crooks. Now Michael Moore is on a new mission: to get us of our behinds and kicking out the corrupt political elites who rule our lives. "Dude" gives you the ammunition: why it's time for regime change at Number Ten; the whoppers spun to wage war on Iraq and make a killing; the 'special relationship' between George of Arabia and the bin Ladens; obscene tax breaks for the rich - and how Mike's going to get everybody together to get rid of Dubya. Not to mention how to stop terrorism (stop terrorizing Third World countries!!!), talk to your conservative brother-in-law and get non-voters voting. It's time to stop bitching, get reading - and get your country back. "Michael Moore is the sand in the underpants of the Bush administration?" ("Observer"). "Washington's No.1 pain in the jacksie..." Dude" is a call to arms, a guide book on how to win the debate with right-wingers and generally a good laugh". ("Daily Mirror"). "What Moore has to say needs saying again and again. Having read this book, I would even vote for him?" ("Guardian"). "Rich with facts, gags, self-deprecation and righteous indignation ...it will rouse readers here and in the US to timely revolt?" ("Independent"). Author of international bestsellers "Stupid White Men" and "Dude, Where's My Country", Michael Moore's 2002 film "Bowling for Columbine" won the Anniversary Prize at the Cannes Film Festival and the 2002 Academy Award for Best Documentary. His 2004 film "Fahrenheit 9/11" won the 2004 Palme d'Or at the Cannes Film Festival, and is the highest-grossing documentary of all time. Released in 2007, Moore's documentary "Sicko", focused on the American healthcare system, was nominated for an Oscar.

Interesting, provocative and quick reading
I am probably going to go down the same road as many of the other commentators on this book, namely that while Michael Moore does make some good points, it does not appear to be a properly researched and documented work. While his videos were amusing (at first) they end up becoming little more than ...
as usual, Moore's renditions are over the top and offensive but at the core there is a point made, one just has to be in the right frame of mind to 'get it'.
One of the early triumphs of Unified Media Theory was the discovery of the anti-coulter. Predicted in 2001 and experimentally verified the following year, the anti-coulter (often colloquially referred to as the "mooreon") is a heavy particle with positive charm, charge and strangeness and leftward s...
