Dude, Where's My Country? is classic Michael Moore. In this often hilarious expose, Moore explores how the American people have been exploited by Republican rich-cats whose sole purpose in life is to get richer. In this richly moving book, Moore tackles just about everything from President George W. Bush's real reasons behind wanting to wage war against Saddam Hussein and Iraq to the role played by Republicans in the Enron collapse. He also devotes considerable efforts to highlighting the risks posed by giving up civil liberties in the name of ' homeland security'. Don't be misled by this description, while the book is decidedly anti-Republican, it is not totally so. There are several occasions throughout this work in which Moore points out situations in which the conservative Republicans were correct and the liberals were wrong.

Witty, timely, and mesmerizing, Dude, Where's My Country? is satire at it best. Just like his president, Moore is on a crusade advocating regime change. However, the regime Moore wants to change is the one ruling America. Best of all, he is advocating that Oprah Winfrey is the candidate with the best chance of beating Bush in the 2004 elections. Oprah for President! I don't doubt that she would win - now if we could only get her to throw her hat into the ring...

Michael Moore has made a name for himself with such gripping movies as Stupid White Men and Bowling for Columbine in which he vigorously attacked the gun lobby and tackled the thorny issues surrounding gun control. He also has made a career of asking the 'hard' questions of corporate and political big-wigs. He hasn't always been successful in getting his questions answered, but he has succeeded in bringing important, and often vital questions to the fore. His manner of highlighting these important issues is painless and enlightening. Best of all, this is a fun book to listen to. It is, however, a book best listened to when you are alone, because whether you agree or disagree with Moore's positions, you'll find yourself talking back to the tape - a lot!
