Moore makes insightful and valid points in a clear cut and easy to digest manner. As ambitious as he is however, Moore lacks comprehensive argument in the issues at hand by oversimplifing or diluting problems to mere type-specific groups and/or distinctions. His tendency to portray America's problems from a tight box of labels such as Black vs White or rich vs poor is fractioned, contrived, and prejudiced even as they attempt the fight those very things. This can undermine the legitimacy of his arguments and serve as a barrier for acknowledgement. Post-BFC, Moore has earned a great amount of authority over what will typically be seen as the "Liberal/Leftist" cause (especially to younger generations), with this added responsibility, it is essential that he reflect a more encompassing view of our society's problems and their vehicles. This audio piece is well worth listening to as long as it does not become the say-all of our solutions: a good introduction.

What prevented me from giving this book a higher rating was the narration, which seemed to me to frequently miss the tone of delivery that Moore himself tends to impart to his text.
This doesn't make it bad, just not what you might expect to hear, if you're fond of Moore's films or TV Nation or the like.
I found that I didn't get the feeling of "What the hell's going on here?" humor that I was hoping to.
