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.”

    Hello hello. This book really gets into the interview and shows how Howard is truly the king of all media. Bye for now, peace and love peace and love. BABA BOOEY!!! I would also recommend Howard Stern‘s Private Parts and Howard Stern’s Miss America.

    I have been an avid fan and listener of Howard for decades. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and read it in two days doing little else! Howard has changed so much and I love reading the openers he wrote sharing his thoughts. The interviews were so so for me as I had heard them before. If you are not a listener you will love them! Hard to please both groups. The book is well written and his journey has had many paths. Definetely buy the book but Howard more Howard less interviews. You are the star we want to hear from!!!

    I want my money back. All he did was print out some show transcripts and put them in a book. Incredibly disappointing.

    funny and touching and sweet- a slowed down version of conversations with the most interesting celebrities today. This book offers what I missed as a listener- even if you think you know everything and have heard it all- basically the ultimate insider glimpse of the studio - from the perspective of Howard himself
  • Great insight

    Zero effort was put into penning this book. It took Howard Stern two years to write a four page intro. The rest of it was transcripts from interviews that are better listened to on YouTube or his channel on Sirius. Take the money and run, I guess!

    This is an amazing read. Sure I have SiriusXM, the app and can listen to/watch these interviews, but I love the intro and transcripts of the interviews. It’s great to have printed history of the best interviewer in the world.

    How? How is someone like this horrible human famous and selling books, as if he has any wisdom to impart. Then to sell it to the public as “shock” radio. Disgusting.
