Michael Moore's life story, from shy Eagle Scout to vocal critic of the Bush presidency, is told in this biography. In-depth research and interviews sort lies from truth and reveal both the passionate and cranky sides of this bestselling author and Academy Award-winning filmmaker. Previously undocumented information provides insights into Moore's mysterious and disastrous jump from local muckraker to editor of Mother Jones and narrates the runaway success of his first film, Roger & Me. This incisive account lets readers see beyond the myths and presents a verifiable perspective on one of the most visible public figures of our age.
