This book is Michael Moore’s most personal—and will be irresistible to fans and foes alike.

#1 New York Times bestselling author Michael Moore returns with his first major book in eight years — a blend of memoir, history, and politics that only he could write.
Moore is his own meta-Forrest Gump, as one moment he’s an 11-year old boy stuck on an Senate elevator with Bobby Kennedy, and the next moment he’s inside the Bitburg cemetery with a dazed and confused Ronald Reagan. Changing planes in Vienna, he escapes death at the hands of the terrorist Abu Nidal (others weren’t so lucky). In search one day for a bag of Ruffles potato chips, he ends up eliminating racial discrimination at private clubs all across America. He founded his first underground newspaper in fourth grade. He refused to be on the CBS Evening News with Walter Cronkite at 16 (“There’s not enough Clearasil in the world for that to happen”). And he became the youngest elected official in the country at age 18 by enlisting an “army of local stoners” who had no idea what they were doing as his campaign staff.
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 Moore has been writing—and living—for a very long time.
Michael Moore is the author of the blockbuster bestseller Dude, Where’s My Country, which rocketed to #1 on the New York Times bestseller list, remaining there for 24 weeks.
