Editorial Reviews

Review

"Forget the rest - the only celebrity memoir you need is Let Me Off At The Top! by Ron Burgundy. Actually by Will Ferrell, it's published as his heroically coiffured newscaster Burgundy returns in Anchorman 2. As Burgundy insists: "This is a terrific book,"(especially if you need 12 rules to survive a prison riot)." Metro "Funnier than the original movie." Heat, 5 star review "A very funny mock-ography, and, yes, it smells of rich mahogany." Shortlist "Comedy gold." Empire "An insight into the brilliant mind of the world's favourite anchorman." FHM --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

About the Author

RON BURGUNDY is an award winning News Anchorman and poet. He lives with his wife, Veronica and dog Baxter in San Diego California. When he is not making models of 18th century sailing ships he can often be found on the deck of his own boat, The Shining M’Lady or supervising archeological digs in and around his back yard.  This is his first “book.”

Great book, but I'm deducting one star simply (and inexplicably) because the book is not offered in a leatherbound edition. How am I supposed to display this cheap hardcover book in my apartment which consists solely of many leatherbound books and a smell of rich mahogany!?

Long have I yearned for the perfect companion for my grueling treks through the Himalayas, a settling come-down from the adrenaline highs that come with ripping out the throat of a wild mastodon with my bare hands, killing two birds with the throw of a single stone, stealing clothing from the homeless, or harpooning a barracuda while riding on the back of a killer whale. Now that I have found this book, I yearn no more. If you're searching for musings and truths of reassurance to keep you warm at night, this book is not that. This is a book for real men of genius and brawn. Thrill seeking adventure bandits who aren't afraid to step on a few little, less successful people on their way to the top. Burgundy out.

Possibly the funniest book I've EVER read. It's not too short just about the right length. I made the mistake of reading this on the train which probably made me look like a laughing lunatic. Alot of humor/comedy books make you chuckle or smirk, with this book however there were many, many times when I couldn't continue reading as I was laughing too hard.
I've never been a big fan of Will Ferrell I've always thought of him as a poor man's Jim Carrey. This book has changed my opinion of him & I'll certainly pay more attention to his work.
Extremely highly recommended if you have a sense of humor. Do you get the idea - I love this book & will read it again.

These are the words you'll be saying on your deathbed: I read a hell of a book. Take it from me. I've only read the front flap and the disclaimer before the preface -- and boy was I impressed. Now, you may know who I am. I've been known to sing a bit. Croon a few. Goulet.

Ron and I go way back. He and I used to hunt giant frogs on the shoulders of silverbacks in the Congonese jungles. Let me tell you, Ron is as every bit a man as he says he is...and then some. I remember the time when he and Baxter saved me from drowning in the jacuzzi up at my San Diegan penthouse. Those were the days. Enough scotch and cocaine to take on the Dragon in that new Hobbit movie. But that's neither here nor there. Goulet.

You know, it brings a tear to my eye when I look on the cover of Ron's book and see a man that I want to hate but can't -- because he's my blood brother. I mean seriously. One night, after bare-chested mountain wrestling on the slopes of Kinnick Kinnick, we used a hamburger spatula to slice open the skin just above our nipples. We embraced each other like men, mixed our blood as if on the barbarian battlefields of old. Ever since, Ron's career has taken off, and I couldn't be happier, albeit with a mixture of jealous rage. Ron, thanks for telling your story. It's about damn time.

- Robert Goulet

I was sold on this book before I finished reading the "Author's Notes" in the book preview. Ron has been such an inspiration to so many in multiple generations. It was only a matter of time before he released a book detailing how he became so successful. The various bits of information also included in the book (gleaned through the years of his impressive television career) are invaluable and will drive this book to become an instant classic.

I would recommend this book to anyone who has heard of Ron Burgundy. He does everything well and I hope some of that rubs off on me just by reading his book. Those Dodge commercials don't even come close to the level of this book. I'm ready for the next one already.

* While you're here, I would highly recommend purchasing the Sex Panther 1.7-oz Cologne Spray for other Ron enthusiasts like myself.

I want to have a staring contest with this book! This book written by "Ron Burgandy" is nothing short of a amazing. You will be laughing so hard, you are bound to get paper cuts even reading on a kindle. This is comic gold at its highest. It is good reading and an ab work out from laughing so hard. MUST READ!!!

Even if for some reason you are not a fan of the movies, you will certainly be a fan of this book. It is clever and well written. It does not go for the cheap laughs, but real comedy.
