Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

Stern's second memoir focuses more on his professional family than on his biological family, and those who listen to his syndicated radio program will LOVE the chance to know more about Stern's crew. If you've been dying to see Stern in drag, here's your chance. But he's still at his best when he's assessing his celebrity guests, trashing the Kennedys and describing his relationship with his computer. For fans of Stern's longsuffering wife Allison, there is a very funny description of her 40th birthday party, and how Stern came through for her and "her yenta friends.". --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From the Back Cover

Now with more than forty pictures of naked breasts, Howard Stern's Miss America offers remarkable revelations about:

Howard's secret meeting with Michael Jackson!
The Stern family pact with Adolf Hitler!
Howard's never-before-revealed mental illness!

With chapters on Howard's ongoing battle with the FCC and his legendary campaign for governor of the state of New York, Miss America covers some of the greatest news stories of recent history—from the Atlantic City penis sandwich to an exclusive with Jackie O's embalming-fluid delivery boy and of course, Philadelphia's own fecal-obsessed Uncle Ed.

I liked Private Parts better but this was very funny and an easy read.

I thought "Private Parts" was funnier, but this book is different--it is more introspective but still has many hilarious moments. The hysterical chapter on Stern's meeting with Michael Jackson is definitely worth the price of this book alone. He trashes Jackson thoroughly, asking the question no one dares to ask: "If you love children so much, where are the girls?" I kept reading this chapter over and over again. What I like about Howard Stern is that he is not afraid to tell the truth. He is not awed by celebrities and doesn't hesitate to shred them apart when they deserve it. He is great at exposing celebrity hypocrisy and hype. Another incredibly funny account is Stern's experience with cybersex and meeting his cybermates in person. The language is foul, vulgar and crude in this book, but if you can get beyond that, you'll realize what an incredibly brilliant and funny man Stern is. Even the way he uses typefaces in this book effectively conveys his feelings to the reader and makes what he says twice as funny. If you're offended by graphic language, I wouldn't recommend this book. But if you have a biting, satirical, twisted sense of humor, you'll enjoy this book immensely.

The self-proclaimed "King of All Media," Howard Stern again shares very personal information with the reader, ranging from his opinions to his hairstyles over the years. His humor is often raunchy and juvenile--not for the squeamish. A must read for fans of his radio talk show.

a bathroom rack visual to oogle during pauses.
Stern is the Bill Clinton of invasive celebs in our lives which causes the meek and the squimish to avoid funny flix like "Private Parts" and this follow-up gem called "Miss America". Howard, like Woody Allen, is a non-template, insightful and easy to despise because of his persona. READ "MISS AMERICA" PLS!

I'll keep this short. Howard Stern's "Miss America" is probably considered repugnant to those he mocks, cajoles, baits and farts at. To the rest of us who aren't in his book, we understand the way in which the FCC has it in for him. We identify to being screwed over and being resented for our sucesses. Read the cybersex chapter first.

Better than Private Parts. Howard is hysterical in this book. I especially love it when he goofs on the Kennedy family, celebrities (Michael Jackson riff is great), and his own radio crew. No one is safe from his tirades. If you're a fan (and really, who isn't?), get this!
Also recommended, a funny little gem I found on amazon entitled "No One's Even Bleeding".

HOWARD IS GOD. This book is the bible for all of those whoenjoy the show. If you don't know how to laugh, or you are a totaldouche rag, then don't read this book; otherwise, it's a hoot. And he's a skilled writer, believe it or not. The man is not only brilliant and funny, but consise and consistent. Must read.
