Michael Moore has become an iconic hero to millions through his relentless muckraking and savage satire. Creator and host of Emmy-winning series TV Nation and The Awful Truth and groundbreaking documentary Roger & Me.
With Arte Johnson's fine reading, Moore's work offers searing indictments of problems and the sources of those problems in contemporary American society-the stupid white men we have empowered to lead our government and economy. His solutions are often wryly amusing and always thought-provoking and will probably not be enjoyed by the political conservatives among your patrons, although it may be in their interests to know that at least one flaming liberal is on to them. Among the key concepts the author develops is that the differences in political rhetoric between Republicans and Democrats result in few or no differences in their actions once they are in power. George W. Bush's and Bill Clinton's programs end in similar disasters for radically different "reasons" though couched in opposing terms. Moore's call to political involvement at the level each listener feels is appropriate is challenging and refreshing. Recommended.-Cliff Glaviano, Bowling Green State Univ.
