Breaking the autobiographical mould, he hilariously presents twenty far-ranging, irreverent vignettes from his own life. Moore is his own meta-Forrest Gump, as one moment he's an eleven-year old boy stuck on a Senate elevator with Bobby Kennedy, and the next moment he's inside the Bitburg cemetery with a dazed and confused Ronald Reagan. Changing planes in Vienna, he escapes death at the hands of the terrorist Abu Nidal (others weren't so lucky). He founded his first underground newspaper in fourth grade. He refused to be on the CBS Evening News with Walter Cronkite at sixteen ('There's not enough Clearasil in the world for that to happen'). And he became the youngest elected official in the country at age eighteen by enlisting an 'army of local stoners' who had no idea what they were doing as his campaign staff. Before Michael Moore became the Oscar-winning filmmaker and all-round rabble rouser and thorn-in-the-side of corporate and right-wing America, there was the guy who had an uncanny knack of just showing up where history was being made. This book is a wild, revealing, take-no-prisoners ride through his early life. Alternately funny, eye-opening, and moving, this is a book Michael Moore has been writing - and living - for a very long time.Read Less

With a background like Moore's, it seems unlikely he
would have turned out any other way than he did. If
environment is half of our bag of opportunities then
his stories demonstrate that backbone and audacity
can be nurtured just like anything else. Terrific stories
by one of our national treasures.
