    He is the scourge of Stupid White Men everywhere. He's taken on fat cats, gun nuts, lying politicians. The Guardian describes him as "a wake-up call, a kick in the mental backside." And now, Michael Moore is back, daring to ask the most urgent question of these perilous times: Dude, Where's My Country?

    Overall

    Don't dismiss this as simple political disagreement disguised as a review. I agree with most of Moore's politics and still found this book painful. Just for the record, I love Al Franken, Moore's previous book was fine, and I certainly wonder where my country is.

    What's wrong with this book? It is not all that entertaining. In fact, it was so tedious that I worried about dozing off when listening in the car (though much of the blame there goes to the near-monotone reading). That would be acceptable if it were informative, but there is basically nothing there that someone who actively follows the political news (not including Fox, of course) does not already know. If you don't know it, get a book of investigative reporting - it will be more accurate and thorough and no less entertaining.

    The book contains a fair number of factual errors (I am a professor and have some expertise in some of the matters discussed) and is needlessly and embarassingly demagogic in places. There are so many good criticisms of the current powers that be, so why make silly weak ones. On top of everything else, this is the worst reading of an audiobook I have heard. The reader takes all the character out of what should at least be lively prose and doesn't even know how to pronounce all the names of the major political figures mentioned.

    Weak content, borning book, terribly reading. Try Al Franken instead.
