Here Comes Trouble, By Michael Moore


Michael Moore begins his life story on Oscar night, March 2003, when he made an anti-Iraq war speech which led to widespread hate and which, tellingly, inspired him to make Farenheit 9/11, his anti-Iraq war documentary.

Though the story here is personal, from his birth (nurses were expecting twins) to learning to read aged four and his brief meeting with Bobby Kennedy, aged 11, the early defiance (he was anti-war by sixth grade) reveals the career, as America's arch political provocateur, that awaited him.
