Michael Moore - Fahrenheit ​9/11
The ​Cannes Film Festival jury voted unanimously to award the 2004 Best Picture Award to Michael Moore and Fahrenheit 9/11. Since then it has gone on to smash all box office records for a documentary and created an international discussion about the Bush administration and the war in Iraq. The Official Fahrenheit 9/11 Reader is a powerful and informative book that includes the complete screenplay of the most provocative film of the year. The book also includes extensive sources that back up all facts in the film, as well as articles, letters, photos, and cartoons about the most influential documentary of all time.

Michael Moore - A ​provokátor
"A ​provokátor" önéletírás. Moore huszonnégy tiszteletlen, humoros és különös történetet gyűjtött egybe saját ifjúságáról. Az egyik pillanatban tizenegy éves kisfiú, aki eltéved a Szenátusban, és találkozik Bobby Kennedyvel, a következőben pedig a bitburgi temetőben néz szembe az elképedt és zavarodott Ronald Reagannel. Majd egy nap nassolnivalóért indul, közben főszereplője lesz a botránynak, amely hozzájárult ahhoz, hogy egész Amerikában felszámolják a magánklubokban dívó faji diszkriminációt. Tizennyolc évesen ő a megye legfiatalabb választott tisztviselője, 2003-ban pedig az Oscar-gála színpadán az amerikai elnököt bíráló mondataival döbbenti meg a világot. Michael Moore élete izgalmas, botrányos és humoros, akárcsak filmjei.

Michael Moore - Dude, ​Where's My Country
From ​the author of the #1 New York Times bestseller Stupid White Men comes a hilarious act of sedition to overthrow the 'Thief in Chief'-and effect the kind of change that just may save the country. Michael Moore is on a mission: He aims to unseat the man who slithered into the White House on tracks laid by guilty Enron execs and greased with his daddy's oil associations. And as for 'The Left,' they're just as satisfied to stand idly by as the chasm between the 'haves' and 'have nots' grows wider and wider. That's right, Michael Moore is back with a new book that reveals what's gone wrong in America and, more importantly, how it can be fixed. In his characteristic style that is at once fearless and funny, Moore takes readers on another wild ride to the political edge of righteous laughter and divine revenge.

Michael Moore - Will ​They Ever Trust Us Again?
American ​soldiers serve willingly. They risk their lives so the rest of us can be safe. The one small thing they ask, though, is that they not be sent into harm's way unless it is absolutely necessary. But after being lied to about weapons of mass destruction and about the connection between al Qaeda and Iraq; after being forced by stop-loss orders to extend their deployment; after being undertrained, underequipped, and overworked long after George Bush declared Iraq "Mission Accomplished," these soldiers have something to say.From his famous 2003 Oscar acceptance speech to his record-breaking documentary Fahrenheit 9/11, Michael Moore has been an outspoken critic of the Bush administration and the war in Iraq. But in this book, Moore gives the spotlight to the real heroes of protest: the men and women who have fought in Iraq and want the American public to know how they feel about their mission and their commander in chief. Moore also fields letters from veterans of other wars and mothers, wives, and siblings of our heir anger and frustration, their tears and pain, and their hopes and prayers.Impassioned, accessible, and moving, these are letters that reveal the true hearts and minds of the men, women, and families on the front line.

Michael Moore - Hülye ​fehér ember
Michael ​Moore a 2003-as Oscar-díj átadáson sem hazudtolta meg magát; köszönőbeszéd helyett botrányba fullasztotta az ünnepséget az amerikai kormányt ócsárolva. A Hülye fehér ember című könyvében is nyíltan és meghökkentően beszél, mindent elmond, amit tudnunk kell arról, hogy a Nagyok és a Jók miként vágnak át bennünket. Kiderül ebből a könyvből – egyebek mellett –, hogy: – Bush "elnök" miként lopta el a választásokat, pusztán fivére, unokatestvére, papájának haverjai, választási csalás és puhány bírák segítségével; – hogyan maradnak mindig gazdagok a gazdagok, miközben bennünket padlóra küld anyagi, gazdasági helyzetünk, és – miként feküdtek le a politikusok a Nagy Üzletnek. – Aztán ott vannak az elképesztő részletek arról, hogy tényleg milyen hülye ez a Bush, mennyi meggyőző példa akad a hímek divatjának múlására, és milyen remek új módja van a Csak Fehéreknek tábla alkalmazásának! Túláradóan nevetős könyv, amelyet mindenkinek el kell olvasni, ha tudni akarja, mi az a nagy csalás, és "ők" hogyan úszhatják meg. A Hülye fehér ember csak cenzúrázatlanul jelenhet meg, az eredeti kiadó csak a közvélemény nyomására adta ki az általa korábban túl forrónak és nehezen kezelhetőnek tartott anyagot. Ideje megtudnunk, miért. Az egész olyan pokolian vicces, hogy elsírod magad.

Michael Moore - Here ​Comes Trouble
This ​is not a 'memoir' or an 'autobiography'. It does not begin with 'I was born eleven days after Bill Haley and the Comets recorded the first rock-n-roll song, and two hours before Hank Aaron hit his first major league home run.' Though both facts happen to be true, Michael Moore has stopped taking credit for either of them. Before he became an Oscar-winning filmmaker and all-round This is not a 'memoir' or an 'autobiography'. It does not begin with 'I was born eleven days after Bill Haley and the Comets recorded the first rock-n-roll song, and two hours before Hank Aaron hit his first major league home run.' Though both facts happen to be true, Michael Moore has stopped taking credit for either of them. Before he became an Oscar-winning filmmaker and all-round thorn-in-the-side of corporate America, it turns out that throughout his life Michael Moore had an uncanny knack for showing up just where history was being made. One moment he's a lost eleven-year-old boy being found by Bobby Kennedy; the next, he's in a cemetery with a dazed and confused Ronald Reagan. He begins his first underground newspaper in fourth grade; sixteen years later, the police are raiding his printing office. On top of all that, he becomes one of the youngest elected officials in the country at eighteen - but not before planning a 'dry-run' escape to Canada with his stoner friends in case they get drafted to Vietnam. Fast-forwarding to 2003, his Oscar acceptance speech leaves audiences open-mouthed. And none of that even comes close to the night a friendly priest decides to show him how to perform his own exorcism. Here Comes Trouble takes readers on an unforgettable, take-no-prisoners ride through the life and times of Michael Moore. It might just be the most hilarious, provoking, poignant and inspiring non-autobiography you ever read.

Michael Moore - Stupid ​White Men
Remember ​when everything was looking up? When the government was running at a surplus, pollution was disappearing, peace was breaking out in the Middle East and Northern Ireland, and the Bridge to the 21st century was strung with high–speed Internet cable and paved with 401K gold? Well, so much for the future. Michael Moore, the award–winning provocateur behind Roger & Me and the bestseller Downsize This!, now returns to size up the new century – and that big, ugly special–interest group that's laying waste to the world as we know it: stupid white men. Whether he's calling for United Nations action to overthrow the Bush Family Junta, calling on African–Americans to place 'whites only' signs over the entrances of unfriendly businesses, or praying that Jesse Helms will get kissed by a man, Stupid White Men is Mike's Manifesto on Malfeasance and Mediocrity. So if you're feeling the same way and you're wondering what's going to give out first – the economy, Dick Cheney's pacemaker, or your new VW Beetle – here's the book for you.
