Format: Paperback
In a revealingly personal bio, Robin Quivers offers her life : childhood molestation by her father, her own wanderings trying to find happiness, her role as newswoman/commentator on The Howard Stern Show. The impact is even more impressive, hearing the story in her own words [audio cassette book], which she delivers in a straight-forward manner.
The book itself covers everything from the forementioned abuse right up through to her introduction to Howard and her years with him, including their disagreements.
Robin is much more than a standard sidekick, and her interaction with Howard and the rest of the gang is a vital and integral part of the morning show. Her self-directed insight is evident in the book. Both Howard and Robin (amongst others) have been in or through therapy, and it seems that (for the most part) it has been helpful and corrective in their lives and careers.
Whether you purchase the regular book and/or audio book, you will enjoy delving into "Quivers: A Life"

Reasonably interesting if your a fan of Sterns show but if your not a Stern fan or aren't familiar with that cast of characters there's no real reason to read it unless your into books where people obsess on traumas in their life which she goes into plenty.

If you a fan of the Howard Stern show, you MUST read this book! Quivers is a fascinating tale of the life and career of this queen of the media. Robin takes you through her life sparing no details, from sexual abuse by her father to her career in the military, her opinions on race, her media career...the book was too short I wanted more!!!

Format: Paperback
Very well-written book. It provides great illustration on : the Howard Stern radio show, Robin's relationship with Howard and the degree to which she has influenced and helped to shape the show (her book and his books are in agreement on this), how a father molesting his own daughter affects the child profoundly, what it's like to grow up black and have conflicted feelings about black people vs. white people, and Robin's life story.

The book is amazingly honest. Robin doesn't sugar-coat things and it's astonishing that she admits to being quite this crazy at points in her life, particularly her early years in New York. A great read if you ask me.
