    Pros: Humor is pretty good; Some of Moore's opinions are right on the money
    Cons: Some silliness; conservatives will not agree with Moore's convictions at all.

    Summary: Michael Moore is an author, film- maker, and social/political activist who first hit the best seller lists with his book “Downsize This”. His first book was a humorous account of the clumsy, thoughtless white men who run the United States. Now, five ... read more

    Pros: Entertaining style, informative material.
    Cons: Republicans and libertarians will likely hate it.

    Summary: A couple who live down the street from me spend their spring and summer weekends selling a variety of items at flea markets. Among the items are books. Occasionally I’ll have the dog out for a walk when they’re loading up their car with ... read more

    Pros: A view like no one else's
    Cons: Some might dismiss Moore right off the bat

    Summary: "Stupid White Men" was written by none other than one of America's most hated liberals Michael Moore. Moore has made a life out of criticizing most people associated with the establishment and waves his brush of criticism just about as widely as ... read more

    Jun 16, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Has some funny moments, Chapter 3 is pretty good
    Cons: Dishonest, generally not funny, boring, simplistic arguments

    Summary: I was debating whether or not to write a review of this book. There have already been several reviews on Epinions, and I usually try to hit up products that have not been reviewed very much. However, Moore’s book seemed like it would be an enjoyable ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Great information and a little bit of fun.
    Cons: More depressing than Moore's earlier books.

    Summary: Stupid White Men is quite a bit different from Moore's previous books, Downsize This: Random Threats From an Unarmed American and Adventures in a TV Nation. In the previous books, Moore basically told about how he screwed around with ... read more

  • Whoa! Opinionated Back-up!

    Jan 18, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Sense of humor, a few points.
    Cons: Everything else.

    Summary: I must say I was quite surprised by the poor quality of Michael Moore's Stupid White Men. I expected it to be outright bad. Overall, I simply couldn't stand the book, and took like six pages in notes on it, but in the last few ... read more

  • Better written than I expected; perhaps a bit too long

    Jan 11, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: funny
    Cons: doesn't really offer a solution

    Summary: Summary: The basic argument of ‘Stupid White Men’ is that most of the ills of society can be attributed to oppressive, white men. Despite focusing primarily on Republicans and most especially on what Moore considers to be the ‘stolen’ election by ... read more

  • Stupid White Man

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Moore fires a lot of rounds and some hit me...
    Cons: ...but the majority miss. Perhaps he should check his own writing before criticizing Bush's literacy.

    Summary: The problem with Michael Moore is that he’s either really conniving or really stupid; he’s either consciously decided to make his money off his nation’s poor, just like the politicians he criticizes; or he’s honestly trying to make a ... read more

    Jan 5, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: identifies a lot of current social and political problems
    Cons: can't always tell when he's being funny vs. serious, plays loose with facts

    Summary: I’ve always stated that I really don’t consider myself a liberal; more of a middle-of-the-roader with distinctly left leanings at times. If I needed any reassurance of that position, it came with the book Stupid White Men ...and Other ... read more

    Pros: Opens your eyes to some pressing issues. Laugh out loud funny on many occasions.
    Cons: Facts can drag on... and on... and on...

    Summary: Michael Moore has now almost reached the level of being a household name. The filmmaker/writer from Flint, Michigan has become quite popular recently. This is mainly due to the success of his latest movie Bowling For Columbine, which won an Oscar after b ... read more

    Pros: Great writing style, well-researched including footnotes. Very funny
    Cons: Moore does not present both sides, but does not claim to (it's his book afterall)!

    Summary: I will start by saying that I love Michael Moore. I find his style and his wit to be compelling and hilarious at times. He is also very thought-provoking and will raise issues not being raised by the Fox News culture of today. Stupid White Men fits ... read more

    Pros: Often hillarious, frequent ranting, form a "Stupid White" man.
    Cons: Shows a clear bias for all things white and corporate.

    Summary: Michael Moore is obviously an intelligent man. Even though he never finished college and has no degrees, he shows a grasp of the issues in which he covers. I may not agree with almost anything he says, but those on the right must admit that ... read more

    Pros: Easy read. Laugh out-loud funny at some points.
    Cons: Moore occasionally goes a bit too far and you can buy the book at Walmart.

    Summary: You may have heard the comparison before, but this book made me finally realize it: Michael Moore is the liberal equivalent of Rush Limbaugh. Sure Michael doesn't have a talk show and he is willing to talk to and debate those opposed to his political ... read more

    Cons: Tends to be repetitious in places

    Summary: I use to say that I would never read a book written by a politician. That is not to say I wouldn,t read one about politicians. This book is very clever and also serious and witty.The degree to which politicians will go to, so as to be sure that ... read more

    Pros: None
    Cons: Too many rants that are not true

    Summary: Obviously, the author is a liberal and makes no way to hide it. While that is fine, he has that right, he says that Bush was the loser in the 2000 election when it was proven that he was actually the winner. Maybe if the author had known that, he would ... read more

    Pros: Moore moves from Big Business to Politics...and it gets MESSY
    Cons: Seems to be telling one side of the story

    Summary: As prologue to my first review in SIX weeks, let me just say that living with a ten-week old baby is the best, most wonderful, most rewarding experience I've ever had. We love Miles so much, and he's healthy, happy, and perfect. But he sucks up the ... read more

    Pros: the satire, the humor, the sarcasm, the first class research
    Cons: The people who need to read this will be turned off by title

    Summary: I read in the American Library Association's Cognotes dated June 18 2002 that Moore states this book would not have been published if it were not for the lobbying efforts of a Librarian. The publishers were in no hurry to go against the patriotic wind ... read more
