I don't recommend this book if you haven't seen the documentary, you really have to see it to get a feel for the gravity of the topic. I seriously recommend watching the documentary if you haven't seen it, so much in fact I would pay people to go see it (however you can look it up online for free). I'll admit that I don't really follow politics or the news very much and truth be told, I've never really been interested because I know politics can get really corrupt and why stress about something ...more

Ich habe den Film von Michael Moore mittlerweile schon einige Male gesehen und sehe dieses Buch als wunderbare Ergänzung. Man hat noch mal das Skript zum Film (nach wie vor gut), außerdem aber noch das Quellenmaterial, Zeitungsartikel und Leserbriefe, was das ganze Projekt richtig rund macht.
Grundsätzlich räumt Michael Moore ja mit der Bush-Regierung auf, zeigt die Verbindungen der Familie Bush mit den Bin Ladens, wie Falschmeldungen der Regierung nicht von der Presse überprüft werden und dass

If more people had taken this documentary to heart, we would not be in the mess that we are in at this point in our history. Michael Moore cleverly answers the critics (the typical pundits and corporate mouthpieces) by giving us a copy of the script and a rebuttal to the articles and the coordinated criticism of the documentary. See the film first and get the book if you have any doubts about the agenda of the previous administration.

Perhaps there is a need to examine all the happenings around the event that shook US and affected much of the world, with open eyes and vigilent mind, to see what realy was going on, rather than a frightened acceptance of a story given out and knee jerk reactions.

There is much that was not officially acknowledged or even given out in the supposedly free media of US.

And in the hurry to not look weak, in the instant reaction to hit out at a few conveniently presented targets, you might in fact

Como dice la tapa es una Guía oficial del documental filmado por el director Michael Moore. Antes vi el film y después me compré el libro por mera curiosidad. Descubrí que era el guión y a medida que la lectura avanzaba se me hacía cada vez más pesado. La verdad no sé si valía la pena leerlo en ese momento. Creo que tendría que releerlo para rescatar un montón de cosas inteligentes que analiza Moore sobre el estilo de vida y el pensamiento de los Estadounidense, que influye en otros países, pero ...more

Ik heb dit boek een hele tijd geleden gekocht omdat ik dacht, dat het 'het verhaal als in de film' zou zijn. Niets was echter minder waar.

Ja, het verhaal stond erin, alleen op een toneelstuk-manier. Beschreven scenes, cameraposities etc. Ik kon er niet veel mee. Daarnaast waren er veel reacties opgenomen van het publiek. Hoe de film ontvangen werd, wat men ervan vond.

Het was in mijn beleving meer een naslagwerk dan een boek om te lezen en ik kwam er niet doorheen.

My introduction into the world of Micheal Moore(for what its worth). Prompted me to watch the movie and others he has done. I do not like his particular style of inflammatory "journalism", but his work prompts people to think, and we certainly need more of that, if we want any kind of reform.

Personally, I found it quite boring towards the end with all the critics and articles. Still, the book's good but only recommendable for people who are really into the movie or topic. But I loved the cartoons :)

Michael Moore just loves himself doesn't he..... it's a good job that his politics are ok or he'd come across as even more of a tosser than he actually is....

Basically this book is just a script of the film of the same name....

A documentary that suggested bureaucratic dishonesty in times of war. A long shot theory that could become the biggest conspiracy of all time.

Michael Moore, the political filmmaker turns his line of sight to the Bush administration. It is no surprise, a president that has ties to the Bin Laden family and royal house of saud is on Moores radar. Moore argues about the fraudulent circumstances, that elected George bush as the 43rd president of the United States. Moore questions the integrity of our elections. He evidently explains how president bush ignores the warnings of the betrayal by his

Frames his perspective well and outlines how it got to the point it did.
Being a Michigan author was a draw, and there are some insightful components within the covers.
Can't say I'd read it again, or that I would recommend it, but it is what it is- his right to express his views and those he's interviewed.

Tried to read this with an open mind but things like Moore obsessing over the minutes after Bush43 was told of the second plane whilst in the school and blatant omissions quickly soured me on this book. I'm no big fan of 43 but this was pretty much a political hit piece disguised as a documentary.

This is actually about the movie and screen play, but does add additional information that shows convincing information and sourcing the author went through to find what was going on behind the scenes after the tragedy of 9/11 and what facts led up to the attack.
Pure shit.
