Self-proclaimed "King of All Media", Howard Stern is host of a daily radio program loved and loathed by millions.

Review:

If you can get past the schoolboy drooling over breasts and lesbians, there is much wit and wisdom to be found in this memoir by radio bad-boy Stern. (Granted, some readers won't really object to the breasts and lesbians...) Stern is a Long Island everyman. On the face of it, his upbringing and early career were not particularly remarkable. But when HE tells the stories and puts us in HIS shoes, everything changes. An overprotective mother? Stern says she raised him like "a veal." A loving wife? Stern says (probably half-joking) that he stays with her because he does not want to give away half his wealth. In a way, you can sympathize with Stern. After reading about his sexual fantasies and ideas about women, you know his wife has gotta be a saint. And we all know that to live with a saint makes a guy look REALLY bad!

From the Publisher:

The #1 bestseller and fastest selling autobiography of all time, Private Parts, will be released on March 14 as a major motion picture from Paramount Pictures and Rysher Entertainment. This is the event Stern's millions of fans have been waiting for. Yes, The King of All Media is back, letting it all hang out in his outrageous new movie. And here is the book that tracks the odyssey. In Private Parts Stern spills his life story, from his dysfunctional beginnings to his unlikely, turbulent rise to super stardom. In the process, he shares his views on everything from foreign policy to fatherhood and Madonna to masturbation, with lots of lesbians in between. No matter whose side you're on -- Cher's "I hate him. He's just a creep," or Stallone's "I love him. I really love him" -- Stern's brutally frank "Don't ask, I'll tell" tome spares no group or institution.

Studded throughout with Howard's favorite photos, pickings from the Hate-Mailbag and illustrations, this is the original, in-your-face manifesto complete with movie art that will once again have fans storming the bookstores...and everyone else running for cover.
