Overview

"Michael Moore is a hybrid of two Ralphs — Kramden and Nader — and he is blessed with brilliant comic timing" — Time

From the creator of the most popular documentary film of all time, Roger & Me, and the award-winning television series TV Nation, comes the AudioBook for our nation's largest political force — the 100 million Americans who refuse to vote!

Nothing but the truth is sacred in Downsize This!, Michael Moore's hilarious screed on the state of America. With the same in-your-face tenacity that has made him everyman's hero, Moore gets under the skin of corporate giants, politicians, and the media — anyone who has made life tougher for the millions of Americans who have head enough. Moore brings his wit and working-class voice to an American public desperate to save what's left of their American dream. His take-no-prisoners attitude is brutally funny, insightful, irrepressible. Whether he's lusting after the First Lady in "My Forbidden Love for Hillary Clinton" or sending campaign contributions to Pat Buchanan from the John Wayne Gacey Fan Club, conducting a Rodney King Commemorative Riot or encouraging Congress to take advantage of NAFTA by moving themselves to Tijuana, Michael Moore has the unique gift for making you think and laugh at the same time. He reflects an irreverent intelligence and biting humor seldom heard in America today.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Author and reader Moore, better known for his film Roger & Me (1989) and the television series TV Nation, manages to offend just about everyone in this sarcastic look at present-day America. As timely as today's headlines, Moore's attacks on downsizing, NAFTA, corporate greed, industrial tax abatement, welfare, race relations, the Clintons, the Doles, and Perot are insightful and perhaps inciting. For example, why shouldn't nonwhite Angelinos burn Beverly Hills, he posits, in commemoration of the riots of several years ago? Moore's view of life in these United States is humorous, of course, but not exactly funny. The twin sources of despair for the American worker are clearly identified as corporate arrogance and spineless politicians. Moore's observations seem well researched, his arguments persuasive, and his proposed solutions radical, ranging from the bold to the preposterous.

Michael Moore doesn't present any facts in his case. He like to poke fun at what's wrong with society but fails to come up with any solutions. Anybody can sit here and complain about how bad things are; but WHAT ARE YOU GONNA DO ABOUT IT?
