Downsize This!: Random Threats from an Unarmed American Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Nothing but the truth is sacred in Michael Moore's hilarious screed on the state of America, Downsize This! With the same in-your-face tenacity that has made him everyman's hero, Moore gets under the skin of corporate giants, politicians, lobbyists, and the media – anyone who has made life tougher for the millions of Americans who are working longer hours for less pay and have had enough. Moore brings his wit and working-class voice to an American public desperate to save what's left of their American dream. His take-no-prisoners attitude is brutally funny, insightful, irrepressible. Whether he's lusting after the First Lady in "My Forbidden Love for Hillary Clinton" or sending campaign contributions to Pat Buchanan from the John Wayne Gacey Fan Club, conducting a Rodney King Commemorative Riot or trying to commit Congressman Bob Dornan to a mental hospital, issuing Corporate Crook Trading Cards, or encouraging Congress to take advantage of NAFTA by moving themselves to Tijuana, Michael Moore has the unique gift for making you think and laugh at the same time. He reflects an irreverent intelligence and biting humor so seldom heard in America today. Downsize This! is the perfect antidote to the mind-numbing throb of the election year.

Synopsis:

Featuring scads of new material, this smash "New York Times" bestseller captures Michael Moore at his irrepressible best, taking on soulless corporations, mindless government bureaucracies, spineless politicians, and a host of other natural enemies of America's working people in a hilarious screed on the real State of the Union. 25 photos.

Synopsis:

Americans today are working harder, working longer and yet for most of us, in this time of ruthless downsizing and political cronyism, job security, a decent standard of living and a comfortable retirement are becoming harder and harder to find. In this brilliantly funny and right-on-target diatribe, irreverent everyman Michael Moore gives his own bold views on who's behind the fading of the American dream.

Whether issuing Corporate Crook trading cards, organizing a Rodney King Commemorative Riot, sending a donation to Pat Buchanan from the John Wayne Gacy fan club (which was accepted) or trying to commit former right-wing congressman Bob Dornan to a mental hospital, the in-your-face host of TV Nation and director/star of Roger & Me combines an expansive wit with biting social commentary to make you think and laugh at the same time.

In hardcover, Downsize This! stormed the bestseller lists of the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Washington Post, San Francisco Chronicle and others. Given Michael Moore's enormous — and growing — constituency, this trade paperback edition brings his unique perspective on the nation to an even greater audience.
