Here Comes Trouble is Michael Moore's blistering anti-memoir, a hilarious book tracing the origins of his political rabble-rousing and his early forays into campaigning for change. Michael Moore has been called an iconoclast, a maverick, a vital dissenting voice and a one of the most un-American people alive. But what made him the man he is today? In his sensational and provocative 'anti-memoir', Moore reveals the family, friends and amazing events that have shaped him: from teachers and Senator Robert Kennedy to parents and the Vietnam War. Here Comes Trouble might just be the most hilarious, provoking, inspiring, poignant and important non-autobiography you ever read. 'A comic genius' Independent 'Moore is a wake-up call, a call to action, a kick in the mental backside' Guardian In addition to his work as a bestselling author, Michael Moore is the award-winning director of Bowling for Columbine, Fahrenheit 9/11, Sicko and Capitalism: A Love Story.

Michael Moore-Oscar-winning filmmaker, bestselling author, and the nation's official provocateur laureate-is back, this time taking on an entirely new role, that of his own meta-Forrest Gump. Smashing the autobiographical mold, Moore presents twenty-four far-ranging, irreverent, and stranger-than-fiction vignettes from his own early life. One moment he's an eleven-year-old boy lost in the U.S. Senate and found by Bobby Kennedy; and in the next, he's inside the Bitburg cemetery with a dazed and confused Ronald Reagan. Fast-forwarding to 2003, he stuns the world from the Oscar stage by uttering the words "e;We live in fictitious times . . . with a fictitious president"e; in place of the usual "e;I'd like to thank the Academy."e; And none of that even comes close to the night the friendly priest at the seminary decides to show him how to perform his own exorcism. Capturing the zeitgeist of the past fifty years, yet deeply personal and unflinchingly honest, HERE COMES TROUBLE takes readers on an unforgettable, take-no-prisoners ride through the life and times of Michael Moore. Alternately funny, eye-opening, and moving, it's the book he has been writing-and living-his entire life.

American soldiers serve willingly. They risk their lives so the rest of us can be safe. The one small thing they ask is that they not be sent into harm's way unless it is absolutely necessary. But after being lied to about weapons of mass destruction and about the connection between al Qaeda and Iraq; after being forced by stop-loss orders to extend their deployment; after being undertrained, underequipped, and overworked long after George Bush declared Iraq "e;Mission Accomplished,"e; these soldiers have something to say. From his famous 2003 Oscar acceptance speech to his record-breaking documentary Fahrenheit 9/11, Michael Moore has been an outspoken critic of the Bush administration and the war in Iraq. But in this audiobook, Moore gives the spotlight to the real heroes of protest: the men and women who have fought in Iraq and want the American public to know how they feel about their mission and their commander in chief. Moore also fields letters from veterans of other wars and mothers, wives, and siblings of our soldiers in the field. They also express their anger and frustration, their tears and pain, and their hopes and prayers. Impassioned, accessible, and moving, these are letters that reveal the true hearts and minds of the men, women, and families on the front line.
