This book is written from the heart and that is where it reaches you when you read it. The stories contained within are insightful with wit and comedy throughout but also serious with parts that will move you to tears and likely give you pause .
Here we get a " Backstage pass " to glimpse the people , places and stories that molded the life and character of Michael Moore . Getting a glimpse of his family history and the things that influenced him to become the man he is today. A man of Character and Moral Fortitude with a deep compassion toward not just his fellow Citizen but Humanity in general .
Those of you who have seen his documentary work may have noticed these great quality's about him already as it is an outstanding quality that is easily recognized.
In these days of materialism and the fake and phony players among us who preach but do not practice , Micheal Moore stands out as one who is true to the belief of his convictions and endowed with the Courage to live act upon them even when its risky to do so.
Michael Moore reminds us of what is and should be important to us:
What it means to do the right thing for the right reasons .
The price paid for all Americans to have freedom and liberty and the cost of loosing them .
Where honesty and integrity are the true marks of a wealthy man
and kindness is not a sign of weakness but of strength.Read more ›
"Here Comes Trouble" is a series of short stories. It's not a memoir per se but a set of stories based in the 60's-80's. The stories are carry a theme about social justice in the context of the time period. They could be enjoyed as fiction writing - but as non-fiction it makes them all the more entertaining and fascinating.
"Boys State" is a personal favorite story of a 17 year old Michael Moore ripping into The Elks organization in 1971 for its racist membership policies. The seeds of what Michael Moore was to become had been sewn.
As the largest private collector of Roger & Me memorabilia, I enjoyed the details of how the film was made. I also love how the book ends...
This is an easy and quite entertaining read, on occasion you have to live with an evangelical and self congratulatory style but equally Moore does let you see other aspects of his personality and his background. No standard autobiography this, it is a selection of stories about his youth but it starts with the Oscar incident, presumably so you can see how the boy turned into the left leaning film-maker. Actually I found this less about a current political view (although there is obviously a touch of this) but more about a boy growing up in 1950's America and suffering the inadequacy of youth in a changing world. His Mum was actually a Republican and his dad a Democrat but he was brought up in a house where reading, questioning and debate was encouraged. Not built like an athlete and awkward around girls, we see Moore's early inquisitive nature and the first steps on the path that has taken him to where he is today.
At times this is interesting, funny, sweet and poignant but by its nature of selected elements it lacks a little something that would have made this a great read instead of an interesting one.
