"If you can write, that's great. If you can tell a story, that's even greater. But if you can work a resilient premise into both, you're worth digging to find."

Here Comes Trouble by Michael Moore

The Good was the anticipation leading up to actually opening this memoir and reading.

The Mmeh Okay was my anticipation finally realized.

The Best Part was the writing, and the premise even moreso. Every chapter hit a high note!

Not unbelievable, Mr. Moore’s interest is in helping the poor. The poor is roughly estimated at 99.98% of the world’s population. Anyone consumed with ‘making’ money to live, as opposed to being consumed with 'thriving' off ignorance, are poor. Yes! Mr. Moore crusades for the majority of us, where interestingly enough, this is where the irony in ‘Here Comes Trouble’ breathes and thrives. Filled with memories of a patriotic family background… the notable account on the gay child and his Motown collection… the Elk Club speech… Mike’s going to seminary school…along with numerous other variances (leaving or being kicked out of seminary school, Zoe, the newspapers, his mother’s death, Davison, Flint, GM…)… on and on was like watching someone flailingly their hands, assertively though civilly at all of us, of which quite a few of us neither view ourselves as poor, nor see any trouble, other than the hand waver. This is a great memoir highly favored and recommended MUST READ.
