His fearless satirical assaults on formidable opponents like General Motors, the National Rifle Association and George W. Bush's White House, have made Michael Moore both a box office hit filmmaker and a bestselling author. For the first time this definitive biography traces the untold story of the 30 years of struggles and failures that led to his "overnight" success. To write this revealing, inspirational, often hilarious book, about the quintessential late bloomer, investigative reporter Roger Rapoport interviewed over 200 people who played key roles in Michael Moore's life, from the nuns at his boyhood Catholic school to Ralph Nader and other employers - not to mention a seven-foot chicken! Anyone who loves (or detests) MIchael Moore will find Citizen Moore an eye-opening book. Michael Moore has two new films set for release, Sicko (about the American health care industry) and The Great '04 Slacker Uprising, focusing on his 70 city nationwide campaign tour to unseat George Bush.
