    This book is Moore's most personal to date - and will be irresistible to fans and foes alike. A sort of anti-memoir, Moore breaks the autobiographical mode while he hilariously presents 20 far-ranging, irreverant vignettes from his own life. This book is a wild, revealing, take-no-prisoners ride through the early life of Michael Moore. Alternately funny, eye-opening, and moving, this is a book Michael Moore has been writing - and living - for a very long time.

    Story

    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.

    Before Liz Lemon, before "Weekend Update," before "Sarah Palin," Tina Fey was just a young girl with a dream: a recurring stress dream that she was being chased through a local airport by her middle-school gym teacher. She also had a dream that one day she would be a comedian on TV. She has seen both these dreams come true. At last, Tina Fey's story can be told....

    "The audiobook is far superior to the print version"
    Overall

    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.
