Matchstick Men

The book which the movie "Matchstick Men" was based off.

Matchstick Men the book was a good read through and I continued to want to turn the page after each chapter.
The ending was a total surprise with a full switch, but after reading I felt angry and as if something was lacking from the'll have to read for yourself to find out why.

Grade: B+
Recommend: Yes

Michael Moore is a Big Fat Stupid White Man

Michael Moore is a big fat stupid white man ~
David T Hardy & Jason Clarke

Three out of five stars. The book starts out wonderfully and spits many Moore facts and discrepancies at the reader, but as the book progresses the facts are just restated and restated through a different channel. All in all we know….Moore lied and deceived his audience. The book reviewed his career from the beginnings and Mother Jones, Roger and Me, Bowling for Columbine, and his two books; Big fat white men and Dude where’s my country? (Canada!). The authors could have taken out at least the middle of the book. We had the idea with the first few chapters and the conclusion, but it was interesting to hear the facts behind the oh so told Moore story.
