It's also brutally funny and full-frontal irreverent.
The point is he is a paragon of how a person should pursue his goals and dreams in life. Jan 07, 2012 Mick rated it liked it. Howard's opinion on several of the celebrities he mentions is now completely different.
Never before has a man done so much with so little.
Over the years he just got more disgusting, sexual, and sensationalistic. Howard Stern was a breath of fresh air, an original individual that changed the world of disc jockeys.
I'm a fan of the show. To those fellow reviewers I alluded in the first I'm at odds with some of my fellow reviewers here. Most of the stories in this book will be familiar to longtime fans.
The most fun I had with a book, honestly.

You either like this guy or you don't. Nonfiction Books. Even he describes himself as obsessive compulsive and no-one will argue with that.

Private Parts by Howard Stern 1993, Hardcover. Probably one of my favorite books I have ever read. I'm glad he is still around and still doing his show. I understand that the schtick is how he built his name and reputation, but I very much prefer the mellower Howard of today.
