More introspective than "Private Parts" but STILL FUNNY!
on April 5, 2001
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.
