Dude Where's My Country Author:Michael Moore Notes George W. Bush's affiliations with Enron and big oil, presenting a tongue-in-cheek plan for ending his political career while charging political leaders with enabling a growing divide between American classes.
I just want to start out by saying (whether you agree or not - that's up to you, of course) that I am a Liberal (note that I do not say Democrat) and I'm VERY against Baby Bush - but that I DID NOT LIKE this book much.
To me, Moore's arguments are not that well thought out, his logic and arguments are disjointed and hop from subject to subject like a frightened rabbit, and you have to buy the separate "official reader" to get the actual FACTS that he claims are in the book. Now, through some independent research, I do know that much of what he says is true or based on truth - but much of it is also conjecture - and he does not do us, the reader, the courtesy of telling us which he is stating at any given time - basically everything is represented as 100% factual!
IF YOU WANT A MUCH BETTER BOOK complete with FACTS and SOURCES try AL FRANKEN'S LIES and the LYING LIARS WHO TELL THEM, A FAIR AND BALANCED LOOK AT THE RIGHT...it is scrupulously researched (with all sources almost ridiculously detailed), logical in its flow from one idea to the next, and is also a good bit funnier and more well written. After seeing Moore's movie, I was VERY disappointed in the book, which I hoped would be just as good - but just didn't deliver for me!
Come one come all those who dispise the plague running the country. Dude where's my country is more of the witty response to just this from the Famed Michael Moore. I loved this book personally always a laugh with Michael Moore.
I did like reading this book BUT (and that's a HUGE but) I just can't figure out how to take Michael Moore. He is very controversial and even though I tend to agree with so much of what he had written in this book I still had a nagging feeling that I was being fed a line of bull. I've had this book forever and only decided to read it after watching his documentary Sicko.
