Here Comes Trouble by Michael Moore
Here Comes Trouble is an autobiography of the famous documentary film maker and writer, Michael Moore. It is formatted as a series of short stories that address important times in his life. The book opens with a story from his later life. However, the other stories begin when his is youth and continue chronologically. For example, he tells of his time spent studying to be a priest, (and when this ended). Or "draft dodging" during his late teens. He also gives the reader a look at his childhood/ teenage relationships. This includes first loves as well as best friends. Moore also explains his various political positions such as his time working with the local school board. In addition, he reveals the thoughts, feelings, and events that lead to his films. In short, this book was fascinating. It is essential for any lover of Michael Moore as it explains his unique style of film making. This book is a good introduction to his other books. It truly reveals the workings of the mind of this great writer and film maker. Through understanding his past one can better understand his works. Also, like his books and films it is told in a humorous, yet truthful (sometimes heartbreaking) way. I also found that his stories captured the sentiments of the times. For example, as he explains his fear of being drafted to fight in a war he does not agree with, the reader can understand how many other youths felt at that time. Hence the book was easy to read, and worthwhile.

Surprisingly touching and emotional biography (or series of stories) from this darling of the left wing. In his own way, Moore can be quite inspirational!

A very informative book. You will learn things that will put his "known" life into perspective. Interesting. You have to respect the guy. He's real honest and he's giving no bullshit. A simple guy who just wants answers. But to must questions are scaring a lot of people. That's too bad.

Very entertaining and an easy read. The world from Michael Moore's perspective, not necessarily the most objective account of some of the topics he discusses. Still, I enjoyed this book.

Funny, self-deprecating, intelligent and scathing, this book is a very good read, and whether you agree or disagree with Michael Moore's opinions (I mostly strongly agree), you can't help but admire the courage it took for him to stand up for what he believes to be right and fair.

Love him or hate him, Michael Moore has led an interesting life. From meeting Robert Kennedy on a family trip to Washington, DC, and hanging up on John Lennon to working (briefly) for Mother Jones magazine and facing death threats for voicing his opposition to the Iraq war, Moore has penned short vignettes not only about a life of fame, but also of growing up in a small town in the upper Midwest. I found many of his stories recalling the 1970s familiar, since we're nearly the same age. A great memoir of one of the leading progressive voices of our times.
