I was not a big fan of Michael Moore the person (a slob and too abrasive) before this book, but I did like several of his documentaries and I appreciated his political message on health and the war in Iraq. So, I was quite surprised to find this audiobook extremely entertaining, and I was surprised to learn what I did about his years growing up and how that shaped the person we know today. Michael Moore the person is quite different from the image we see on television, and I was very happy to dispel that image of him in my mind. He is a very misunderstood rebel in our society, and I hope this book will cause people to reconsider how they view him. The book manages to be both humorous, touching, and serious. I couldn't wait to keep listening and was sad to hear it end.
This is a great gift for teenagers too because his story will inspire them to believe they can make a difference in this world.
Because Tina Fey reads the book using her various voices, this makes the audio version significantly more entertaining than the print version. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is the book was rather short--I think 5 hours--so it was like having dinner with a great dinner partner and then it's over too quickly.
I was thoroughly entertained.
