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.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
Liberal provocateur Michael Moore campaigns to unseat George W. Bush in this well-documented analysis of what's gone horribly wrong in America. Aiming his barbs at targets near (corporate corruption, the erosion of civil rights) and far (war in Iraq), Moore offers practical strategies for regime change in America. Moore is a passionate man, as is borne out in his heartfelt documentaries, and his intensity shines through here.
The New York Times
When Stupid White Men appeared, its brand of name-calling was more of a novelty on the best-seller list. Now it is luxuriantly in flower...But Mr. Moore, through real conviction along with showboating personality, does make himself the most galvanizing and accessible of the lot.—Janet Maslin
Publishers Weekly
Although it's curious that Moore (Stupid White Men) chose not to narrate his latest indictment of the conservative right, Morin does an admirable job of conveying Moore's ideas and subtle (and not-so-subtle) wit. At first, Morin's performance seems well-meaning yet stiff, much like the child voices of the Charlie Brown TV specials-very clear but with the unnatural cadence that comes from reading a script. As time goes by, however, he grows more relaxed with the material. By the final disk, it's obvious why Morin was chosen for the job. Between Moore's text and Morin's loosened-up delivery, listeners can almost imagine that they are hearing Moore's own voice. In any case, Moore's message is clear: he believes America is being hoodwinked by George W. Bush. Bush's goal, he says, is to use our fear of terrorism to push through his own agenda, as well as the agendas of his rich friends and supporters. Moore makes provocative connections between the Bushes and the Bin Ladens and even the Bushes and the Taliban, but the one drawback of this audiobook is the lack of references. While the book form of Dude is heavily footnoted, Moore points listeners to his Web site for his sources, where finding specific information can be difficult. Simultaneous release with the Warner hardcover (Forecasts, Oct. 6, 2003). (Oct. 2003) Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
Library Journal
Moore, author of the best-selling Stupid White Men and the 2002 Oscar-winning documentary Bowling for Columbine, once again has the courage to question the powers that be-and starts at the top with George Bush. Moore has seven questions for the President, questions about Bush family ties to the bin Ladens and the Saudi royal family. The author keeps the listener's attention as he documents other lies that have been presented to the American public: from Iraqi nuclear weapons to Iraqi ties to al Qaeda. He also points out some facts that the current administration would rather not let the public know, e.g., the sale of biological agents to Iraq by the United States between 1985 and 1990. In a country in the stranglehold of the USA PATRIOT Act, this book offers a lighthouse of hope. D. David Morin's clear and distinct reading allows Moore's words to sing off the page. Moore has sounded a wake-up call for the 2004 elections and the future of a free America. Highly recommended for all libraries.-Theresa Connors, Arkansas Tech Univ., Russellville Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.

Meet the Author

In addition to his work as a mega-bestselling author, Michael Moore is an award-winning director. He lives in Michigan.

Biography

Michael Moore -- filmmaker, author, on-camera pest to those in corporate power -- has filmed two of the most successful film documentaries of all-time and wrote the top nonfiction bestseller for 2002. But his most famous act on camera may be one that he didn't film himself.

Even those who weren't watching the Oscar telecast in the spring of 2003 must have heard about it during the aftermath. Moore, collecting his best documentary Oscar for Bowling for Columbine and joined by his fellow nominees onstage, proclaimed his dedication to nonfiction in his work and took aim at the fiction he said he saw all around him.

"We like nonfiction, and we live in fictitious times," he said to a mix of boos and cheers. "We live in the time where we have fictitious election results that elect a fictitious president. We live in a time where we have a man sending us to war for fictitious reasons. Whether it's the fiction of duct tape or fiction of orange alerts we are against this war, Mr. Bush. Shame on you, Mr. Bush, shame on you. And any time you got the Pope and the Dixie Chicks against you, your time is up."

At least it was short.

Moore has been telling truth to power -- or, to his critics, his version of the truth -- long before his groundbreaking 1994 documentary Roger & Me attempted to corner the General Motors chairman Roger Smith on why his company closed its plant in Flint, Mich., in favor of 11 new plants in Mexico.

He founded the alternative newspaper The Flint Voice in the 1970s, started a weekly radio show in Flint, and became the youngest school board member in the country when he ran for office in 1972. He was fired from the liberal magazine Mother Jones, reportedly for liberal activism.

But it was Roger & Me that made him something of an icon for the left. Heavy, sloppily dressed, almost always sporting a scruffy beard and a baseball cap, Moore is an everyman with a camera crew. And he has bones to pick with so many in power: General Motors, Kmart, the National Rifle Association, the Republican Party.

New York Times columnist Frank Rich looks hopefully to Moore as the left's rallying counterpoint to the likes of Rush Limbaugh, a welcome gust of humor from the deadly earnestness of the liberal movement.

"Like Mr. Limbaugh at his least grandiose best," Rich wrote in 2003, "Mr. Moore's persona is more funny than angry, more everyman than show-biz. He is not, as he puts it, ''a didactic, wimpy kind of liberal' -- one of those whiners that makes audiences reach for the remote faster than you can say ‘Phil Donahue.' Mr. Moore may not be subtle as a filmmaker or a polemicist, but the grandstanding glee of his broad strokes is precisely what makes him succeed as a showman."

Anyone familiar with Moore's tone on camera – from Roger & Me to Bowling for Columbine to his short-lived television program TV Nation, sort of an extended, edgy Candid Camera-style prank afflicted on the rich – will recognize him in print as well.

"As someone with a penchant for demagoguery, someone who thinks that the present political structure needs ‘to be brought down and removed and replaced with a whole new system that we control,' Mr. Moore plays to the camera even when he's doing it on the page," Janet Maslin wrote in The New York Times in 2003, reviewing his book Dude, Where's My Country?

In his first book, Downsize This he jabbed at downsizing-happy corporate executives and other piñatas favored by the left. He followed that up with Stupid White Men he examined the new century after the bust of the New Economy and prayed for Jesse Helms to get kissed by a man. And, in 2003, he released Dude, Where's My Country? calling for a regime change in Washington. (One tidbit: The Internal Revenue Service actually has a specific form for tax refunds of $1 million or more. Perhaps some of you have seen it.)

With his first two books, Moore was something of a lone liberal voice on the best sellers lists. By the time his third was released, he had to muscle his way through people like Al Franken and Molly Ivins to get to his audience.

"When Stupid White Men appeared, its brand of name-calling was more of a novelty on the best-seller list. Now it is luxuriantly in flower," Maslin noted in her Times piece. "Mr. Moore will no doubt share a readership with Al Franken's Lies and the Lying Liars Who Tell Them (which is funnier), Molly Ivins and Lou Dubose's Bushwhacked (which is better informed) and Joe Conason's Big Lies (also better informed), if not with Bill O'Reilly's Who's Looking Out for You? (politically opposite, but no less self-serving). But Mr. Moore, through real conviction along with showboating personality, does make himself the most galvanizing and accessible of the lot."

Liberals rub their hands with glee for equal time against Rush Limbaugh (who termed his own radio program "equal time.") But for some, Moore's brand of rhetoric is good news for the conservatives, not liberals.

"If this book is what passes for a political manifesto, then Tom Paine is truly dead," Alan Wolfe wrote of Stupid in The New Republic 2002. "Moore peppers his book with factoids, weird memos, open letters, bizarre lists, LOTS OF SENTENCES IN CAPITAL LETTERS, and name-dropping accounts of how he happens to know some members of the Bush family personally. It is meant to be satire, I suppose; but the only person skewered is Moore, who proves himself to be the only stupid white man around. Anyone bent on redistributing income in favor of the rich could not get a luckier break than having a critic like Michael Moore."

Good To Know

Moore is a card-carrying member of the National Rifle Association.

He is an enormous success in Germany. Publishers Weekly in 2003 reported that his book Stupid White Men sold 1.1 million copies during its first year in print in Germany, more than double than in the United States. Even the English version made the Spiegel bestseller list, the only book outside the Harry Potter series to do so.

Moore tangled with his publisher over the content of Stupid. HarperCollins had demanded changes in "offensive" material in the wake of the terrorist attacks on Sept. 11, 2001, but, with help from angry e-mails from librarians, the book was released unchanged.

Introduction


I love listening to people's stories about where they were and what they were
doing on the morning of 9/11, especially the stories from the ones who, through
luck or fate, were allowed to live.

For instance, there's this guy who had just returned the day before from his
honeymoon. That night, on September 10, his new bride thought she'd make him her
special homemade burrito. The burrito was horrible, like eating tar stripped off
the center line of the Major Deegan expressway. But love ignores all of that and
what counts is the gesture, not the digestion. He told her how grateful he was
and how much he loved her. And he asked for another.

The next morning, September 11, 2001, he's on the subway from Brooklyn to his
job on one of the top floors of the World Trade Center. The subway might have
been heading to Manhattan, but the burrito was heading south, and I don't mean
the Jersey shore. He starts to get sick, real sick, and decides to get off just
one stop before the World Trade Center. He runs up the subway stairs in a
desperate search for facilities. But this is New York and that was not to be.
And thus, on the corner of Park Row and Broadway, he became a poster boy for
Depends.

Embarrassed and humiliated-but feeling much better!-he flagged down a gypsy cab
and offered him a hundred dollars to take him home ($9 for the ride, and $91
toward the price of a new car).

When the man got home, he ran inside to take a shower and to put on a new set of
clothes so he could get back to Manhattan. Coming out of the shower he flipped
on the TV and, as he stood there, he watched the plane slam right into the floor
where he worked, where he would have been right now had his loving wife not made
him that wonderful-that absolutely perfectly incredible amazing ... He broke
down and began to cry.

My own 9/11 story wasn't so close a call. I was asleep in Santa Monica. The
phone rang around 6:30 a.m. and it was my mother-in- law. "New York is under
attack!" is what I heard her say through my half-awake ear. I wanted to say,
"Yeah so what's new- and it's 6:30 in the morning!"

"New York is at war," she continued. This made no sense other than, again, it
always feels like war in New York. "Turn on the TV," she said. And so I did. I
woke up my wife and as the television faded on there were the towers, on fire.
We tried to call our daughter back home in New York, no luck, then tried to call
our friend Joanne (who works near the World Trade Center), no luck, and then we
just sat there stunned. We didn't leave the bed or the TV until five that
afternoon when we finally found out that our daughter and Joanne were okay.

But a line producer we had just worked with, Bill Weems, was not okay. As the
networks started to run a scroll along the bottom of the TV with the names of
those who were on the planes, along came Bill's name on that screen. My last
memory of him was the two of us horsing around at a funeral home where we were
shooting a piece about the tobacco industry. Put two guys with a dark sense of
humor around a bunch of undertakers and you've got what we would call nirvana.
Three months later he was dead and-how do they say it?-"life as we knew it
changed forever."

Really? Did it? How has it changed? Is there enough distance from that tragic
day to ask that question and find an intelligent answer? Things certainly
changed for Bill's wife and his seven-year-old daughter. There's the crime,
right there, to have her daddy taken from her at such a young age. And life
changed for the loved ones of the other 3,000 who were murdered. They will never
lose the sorrow they feel. They are told that they "must move on." Move on to
where? Those of us who have lost someone (and I guess that's eventually
everyone) know that while life does "move on," the sock in the gut, the sorrow
in the heart, will never leave, so ways must be found to embrace it and make it
work for you and the living.

Somehow we all work our way through our own personal losses and we get up the
next morning and the morning after that and fix the kids' breakfast and do
another load of laundry and pay the bills and ...

Meanwhile, in faraway Washington, D.C., life is changing, too. Taking advantage
of our grief, and our fear that "it" may happen again, an appointed president
uses the dead of 9/11 as a convenient cover, a justification, for permanently
altering our American way of life. Is that why they died, so that George W. Bush
can turn the country into Texas? We've already conducted two wars since 9/11,
and an upcoming third or a fourth is not all that unlikely. If this is allowed
to continue, then all we will have accomplished is to dishonor those 3,000-plus
dead. I know Bill Weems didn't die so he could be used as an excuse to bomb
innocents overseas. If his death, his life, is to have a greater meaning from
this moment forward, it is to make sure that no one else like him will have to
lose his or her life in this insane, violent world, a world we now seem
hell-bent on running any way we damn well please.

I'm lucky, I guess, that I even get to write these words you are reading. Not
just because I get to live in the most wonderfulest country in the whole wide
world!
, but because after 9/11, my former publisher, Regan Books (a division of
HarperCollins which is a division of the News Corp which owns Fox News and it's
all owned by Rupert Murdoch), was trying its hardest to make sure my career as
an author would come to an early end.

The first 50,000 copies of Stupid White Men came off the printing press the day
before 9/11, but when the tragedy struck the next morning, the trucks that would
carry them to the nation's bookstores never left the loading dock. The publisher
then held the books hostage for five long months-not simply out of good taste
and respect (which I might have been able to understand), but out of a desire to
censor me and the things I wanted to say. They insisted I rewrite up to 50
percent of the book and that I remove sections that they found offensive to our
leader, Mr. Bush.

I refused to change a word. A standoff ensued until a librarian in New Jersey
heard me talking about the phone call I had just received from the Murdoch
publisher telling me that it looked as if they had no choice, thanks to my
stubbornness, but to "pulp" and recycle all 50,000 copies of my book that were
gathering dust in a warehouse in Scranton, Pennsylvania. I also was told by
others not to expect much in the way of a book career after this, as word would
spread that I was considered "trouble," a royal pain in the ass who wouldn't
play ball.

This librarian, Ann Sparanese, a woman I did not know, sent out an e-mail to a
list of librarians, telling them that my book was being banned. Her letter shot
around the Internet and, within days, letters from angry librarians were
flooding Regan Books. I got a call from the Murdoch police.

"What did you tell the librarians?" "Huh? I don't know any librarians." "Yes you
do! You told them about what we are doing with your book and now ... we're
getting hate mail from librarians!
" "Hmm," I replied, "I guess that's one
terrorist group you don't want to mess with."

Fearing there would soon be a crazed mob of wild librarians storming down Fifth
Avenue and surrounding the HarperCollins building, refusing to leave until
either my book was liberated from the Scranton warehouse or Murdoch himself was
drawn and quartered (though I would have settled for making Bill O'Reilly wear
his underwear on his head for a week), the News Corp surrendered.

They dumped my book in some bookstores with no advertising, no reviews, and the
offer of a three-city tour: Arlington! Denver! Somewhere in New Jersey! In other
words, the book was sent to the gallows for a quick and painless death. It's too
bad you wouldn't listen to us, one Murdoch operative told me, we were only
trying to help you. The country is behind George W. Bush and it is
intellectually dishonest of you not to rewrite your book and admit that he has
done a good job since 9/11. You are out of touch with the American people, and
your book will now suffer as a result of it.

I was so out of touch with my fellow Americans that, within hours after the
book's release, it went to number one on Amazon- and within five days it had
gone to its ninth printing. It's in its fifty-second printing as I write this.

The worst thing to tell a free people in a country that's still mostly free is
that they are not allowed to read something. That I was able to be heard-and
that my book would go on to be the number-one selling nonfiction hardcover book
of the year in the United States-screams volumes about this great country. The
people will not be intimidated and they will not be bullied by those in charge.
The American people may look like they don't know what's going on half the time,
and they may spend too much time picking out different-colored covers for their
cell phones, but when push comes to shove, they'll rise to the occasion and be
there for what is right.

So here I am now with this new book at none other than AOLTIMEWARNER and Warner
Books. I know, I know, when will I learn my lesson? But here's the good news.
During the entire time I've been writing this book, AOL has been trying to get
rid of Warner Books
. Why would a media company want to get rid of its book
division? What did Warner Books do to upset the gods of AOL? I figure if AOL
wants to dump these guys, they have to be okay. Plus, the other Warner folks in
this tangled web-Warner Bros. Pictures-are the people who distributed my first
film, Roger & Me. They were good and decent and they never threatened to "pulp
it."

Okay, I'm rationalizing. Six media companies own everything. Break up these
monopolies for the good of the country! The free flow of news and information in
a democracy must not be in the hands of just a few rich men.

Yet, I have to say, they seem to be behind me here 100 percent. 1000 percent!!
Not once have they said I was "trouble." But then, It's not me they really need
to worry about. IT's the librarians. And you.

    Dude Where's My Country book review

    I find that this book was very enlightening. Moore brings up very valid points that the american people as a society need to take note of. Moore uses a good sense of humor and sarcasm throughout the entire book, there was many times when i caught myself laughing out loud. I would not recommend this book to a republican or a conservative because he basically bad-mouths those types of people in the book. I think that most of the topics that he brings up are factual and have enough supporting evidence behind them that for me it was believable even though i did not want it to be. This is a great book if you love politics and are interested in what is happening in both america and the rest of the world today. all together i thought this was a very good book and i would have no problem reading it again sometime.

    Where's my country, I couldn't tell you if I knew.

    In this book Michael Moore focuses on Bush and how he does not know how to run this country. He talks about his connections to the bin Ladens and the royal families. How they have been in business together for many years now. There so close they even call one of the bin Ladens 'Bander Bush'. Moore explains that he believes that the war is mainly over oil and how we backed out of a pipeline deal over in Saudi Arabia. Moore reffers to President Bush as the home of the whopper. The more juicy lies he feeds to us the more we want to eat it up. He says the Bush stacks one lie on top of another to try to hide the nation from the truth that he screw up. Such as when he said that he watched the first plane crash into the first tower on t.v., when the truth is that no one watched that on t.v. because it wasn't filmed. I don't understand why someone would make such an obvious and pointless lie. Moore talks about how the government likes to keep the American people in fear. That's why I think it was so easily for us to go to war in 2000, we were scared of what was going to happen next.

    Another heroic work by the few PATRIOTS willing to stand up to our adminstration

    Again, we have the partisan battle in the reviews. This country was founded on the basis that all men are created equal, that goverment shall stay out of peoples buisness, etc etc. Michael Moore shows clearly that the men and women now running our country want nothing more then to better themselves and aren't afraid to start a few scandals. People in the reviews say bush is cleaning up Clinton's mess. Wait, Clinton didn't lie about any wmd and go start illegal wars. The Clinton presidency ended with a surplus. There were no major terrorist attacks on U.S soil. Michael Moore shows us all of these things and More.

    If you are a Democrat then read this book with your closed mind and you will totally love it!

    Moore offers nothing new in this book and he is not as clever this time around. The book does have some interesting stories of individuals... but most of the stories could be used in a variety of ways to support almost any political view. Moore's Anger and frustration with the current administration is obvious in this book and if he truly believes what he is saying then I guess he deserves to be angry. Here is an example of just one thing I disagree. I disagree because what he says is misleading. In one page of the book he says, 'We've already conducted two wars since 9/11, and an upcoming third or a fourth is not all that unlikely.' What he says is basically true but I think a more accurate way to describe it would be.. 'We've already conducted two battles since 9/11, and other battles are inevitable in the overall war on Terrorism.' He speaks as if he believes that all the battles or fights we have engaged in are not a part of the same war. Or maybe he thinks that the War on Terror is a war on Al Queda. This is just one example of where I disagree. And there is not a page in this book that I don¿t find disagreeable. If you are a Michael Moore fan then you may ask ¿Where is my country?¿ and I would have to say¿ maybe the Republicans have it for a while, after all it¿s about time the pendulum swung back the other direction. It¿s better than marching off the cliff with the suicidal Democrats. Some of the Angry white men that want the country back are: Fat head Kennedy, Gore Zilla, Harry Reid, Tom Daschle, Howard Dean, Shurman, Pelosi, Robert KKK Bird, Dick Durbin, and many other disgruntled democrats.

    If you are a Republican, read with an open mind.

    This book has recieved much criticism from many right-wing readers, most of whom have probably not even read the book. Michael Moore writes while backing up everything. Can we say this for other political writers? Stop attacking the man for expressing his opinion, open up, and read.

    All just propaganda

    Again, like most of his work, it is all propaganda. Moore takes facts and cuts, edits, and twists them to fit his extremist viewpoint. Nothing from his work can be cited as a valid piece of factual information. Whether your Left or Right, this is junk.

    Dude - You're Still a Frustrated White Trash

    Moore's vile books are a cheap attempt to create attention at the expense of others. Does this guy still live in the basement at his parent's house?

    Michael Moore Pummels The Collective American Ego

    M. Moore's title 'Dude, Where's My Country?' is an eye catching title that begs for serious answers from this administration. It is our moral and humanitarian obligation to ask these questions before mindlessly agreeing to send people off to war, spending $87 billion or voting for Bush in 2 004. Based on a mass paranoia fostered by misinformation, the real terrorism has come from US policy. As Moore indicates, a history of aggressive policies by the US has caused parts of the world to be more then a little upset with us. The Bin Laden family and the Bush's cozy relationship is no lie, read on.
