Love this book, i love seeing Howard being compared or at least taken seriously as an interviewer, he is one if not the best celebrity interviewers out there, if you laugh at what i say you tube his interview with anyone from GAGA to Paul Mcarthey he has them talking so freely about things no one else has the guts to talk about.

Although the book sometimes reads like a textbook, I was impressed with its objectivity and conciseness. I particularly enjoyed the chapters on Howard Stern, Johnny Carson, Dave Letterman, and Jay Leno. The book covers talkers from both radio and television and provides great insight to America's most influential broadcasters.

Highly recommended.

I want to read this book, and I'll buy it when it's $9.99 on Kindle. Not going to pay more for an ebook.
