Description

Rock stars and rap gods. Comedy legends and A-list actors. Supermodels and centerfolds. Moguls and mobsters. A president.

Over his unrivaled four-decade career in radio, Howard Stern has interviewed thousands of personalities—discussing sex, relationships, money, fame, spirituality, and success with the boldest of bold-faced names. But which interviews are his favorites? It’s one of the questions he gets asked most frequently. Howard Stern Comes Again delivers his answer.

This book is a feast of conversation and more, as between the lines Stern offers his definitive autobiography—a magnum opus of confession and personal exploration. Tracy Morgan opens up about his near-fatal car crash. Lady Gaga divulges her history with cocaine. Madonna reminisces on her relationship with Tupac Shakur. Bill Murray waxes philosophical on the purpose of life. Jerry Seinfeld offers a master class on comedy. Harvey Weinstein denies the existence of the so-called casting couch. An impressive array of creative visionaries weigh in on what Stern calls “the climb”—the stories of how they struggled and eventually prevailed. As he writes in the introduction, “If you’re having trouble finding motivation in life and you’re looking for that extra kick in the ass, you will find it in these pages.”

Interspersed throughout are rare selections from the Howard Stern Show archives with Donald Trump that depict his own climb: transforming from Manhattan tabloid fixture to reality TV star to president of the United States. Stern also tells of his Moby Dick-like quest to land an interview with Hillary Clinton in the run-up to the 2016 election—one of many newly written revelations from the author. He speaks with extraordinary candor about a variety of subjects, including his overwhelming insecurity early in his career, his revolutionary move from terrestrial radio to SiriusXM, and his belief in the power of psychotherapy.

As Stern insightfully notes in the introduction: “The interviews collected here represent my best work and show my personal evolution. But they don’t just show my evolution. Gathered together like this, they show the evolution of popular culture over the past quarter century.”

    Oddly this book may be more interesting to the reader who does not listen regularly to the show. Liked the introductions but heard all the interviews so it wasn’t that great.

    Just a collection of interviews I already heard. Longtime fan but this was big disappointment. Don’t know how Howard could claim it took two years for him to “write” this book. He just wrote some brief intros to the interview, and they were not really well written. He should acknowledge fan blowback if he is not a phones.

    Changed my world - Howard has written a beautiful homage about his career and life. Not sure what else to say except I will read it again and again.
  • Deep insight - beautiful perception

    This book is truly a must read not just for fans of Howard Stern but people who love to peel back layers and see what’s behind the curtain. Understanding people, especially truly understanding celebrities is not an easy task. They have lives that few of us can fathom. Howard always finds a way to crack through and show listeners how they are more like us than we realize. Enjoy this book!

    I have listened to Howard Stern since high school. I have often found him boorish and self centered exploiting his guests. This book was so entertaining I couldn't put it down. Howard has evolved his gifts. He is still irreverent and controversial, but something has changed. He seems to get the best from every interview showing us that these "stars" are just like us with the same foibles and challenges we all face. Thanks for being so real and telling us what we want to hear.

    I thought this would be more interesting. I am a big Howard Stern fan and have listened to him from the very beginning. For anyone who hasn’t heard his interviews before would find this interesting. Having heard almost all these interviews I found it a boring read. Sorry Howard but this was a 2 year waste of your time.

    He should have called it Howard Stern’s interviews. No hard work could have gotten in this as they have everything on tape. Be a fan since channel 9. Jim S. “
