This is an easy read and also very informative. It is a short book perfect for a plane ride or beach weekend. I am so very sad that Neil has retired from talk radio. I spent 20 years listening to him in the car on the way to work each morning. I look forward to many more books from him and highly recommend this one to you.

While reading this, I couldn't help thinking about "If I Ever Get Back to Georgia, I'm Gonna Nail My Feet to the Ground" by Lewis Grizzard. You see both Boortz and Grizzard are Georgia legends. Grizzard as a humor columnist and Boortz as a radio talker. Both books detail the author's respective career. Grizzard's version reads more like a novel, Boortz's by contrast is more like most of Grizzard's other books. Rather than being running narrative of his life, it is a collection of vignettes of his life in both radio and as a lawyer.

This fascinating book provides character sketches of many people involved in Boortz's career and others he encountered along the way. The unusual details of his journey from radio guy to lawyer who dabbled in radio, to radio guy who dabbled in the law to the climatic ultimatum that led him to walk away from the law is worth the price of the book alone.

For those who have followed the career of Neal Boortz, this is a must read. Boortz employs his usual wit and humor in providing this great look behind the scenes and telling - as Paul Harvey would say - the rest of the story.

I'm a fan of the 'ol Talkmaster, so I'm probably a little biased. I've read all his books to date and like the others, this one didn't disapoint. The insider stories are great for a diehard like me and I'm sure entertaining for the most casual listener. Neal has a way of putting things that can make sensitive people cringe and with his newfound retirement freedom, the gloves are really off! I hope he has some more books in him, because I know I'll be lining up to buy 'em!

This book is hilarious! Neal is an amazing writer and radio personality, and is truly missed. The way he sees life, and the way he recreates it for you is unique, and captivating! I bought this because I was a listener of his show, and truly miss him in the morning on the radio. This book really is the perfect ending for his 'happy ending'. I wish Neal well in life, and retirement, and cannot wait until he's back on the air covering for Herman or someone else!

If you enjoy listening to Neal Boortz on the radio, you will absolutely enjoy this book. It not only covers a lot of information he has shared over the years, but also some private moments that he is only know letting be known. If you enjoy Neal, this is a good read. (It actually makes me want to try out as a talk show host... unfortunately I sound like a skinny nerd.)

If you liked Neal Boortz on the radio, you will love this book.
Full of interesting, funny and sometimes sad tidbits about his career in radio.
One of those few books where I deliberately slowed down while reading as I didn't want it to end.
Can't wait for his next one!

Neal brought a sense of humor and clarity to his radio show that is sorely missed. This book shows him in the light most have seen him over the years. His talents are unique. And his leaving the air has left a vacuum in conservative radio. The book is great, I highly recommend it!
