From one of radio’s loudest, orneriest, most beloved, and highest-rated personalities, a bold and hilarious memoir of sports, manhood, and what it is to be a fan.
In 1991, fresh from college, Craig Carton drove a crappy 1980 Buick to Buffalo, New York, to interview for a job at WGR radio. The station manager who hired him was the first to recognize his considerable on-air talent, and helped start what has become a legendary radio career. Often compared to Howard Stern, Carton has hosted a series of highly rated shows, and in 2007 he joined WFAN, where he and Boomer Esiason host an eponymous show every morning for four hours out of a studio in New York City.
In this debut book, Carton invites the reader to join him as he recounts tales from his suburban youth, defends his long-held love affair with the New York Jets, reminisces about the shenanigans of some of the highest paid and most celebrated athletes playing today, and reflects on his work as one of radio’s craftiest, most hilarious personalities ever to get behind the microphone.

If you listen to him or watch the show on tv this book is for you I can't stop reading it..it's a really good book
The book left me wanting to read more. I hope a second book comes out soon.
Im an avid reader and definitely enjoyed this book! Great stories and well laid out. Gets a little choppy toward the end but for sure a very highly recommended book. I listen to the show daily and am a huge fan. Ive even called in a few times. Putting that aside, even if you've never heard the show, Carton writes well and keeps you entertained. 4.5 stars
