Publisher's Summary

From one of radio's loudest, orneriest, most beloved, and highest-rated sports radio personalities, a bold and hilarious memoir of sports, manhood, and what it is to be a fan.
In 1991, a young Craig Carton drove all of his belongings in a crappy 1980 Buick to Buffalo, New York, to interview for a job at WGR radio. Hired for $12,000 a year, he rented a room in a retirement home where he agreed to help care for his elderly neighbors in exchange for rent of $99 per month. That auspicious start marked the beginning of what is fast becoming 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, Carton invites the listener 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.

Easy listening, and entertaining.

I had no expectations about this book, just thought I'd give it a listen because I enjoy the "Boomer and Carton" show. I usually feel that about 2/3 of Craig's opinions are good, the other 1/3 are nonsense and often just made to get attention. Either way, Craig Carton is good at what he does. The book is no literary piece of work, it's just an interesting guy telling his life story. Many these autobiographies are more about money than good literary work, and that is probably be the case here. Some of these spur of the moment autobiographies are quite disappointing, but Craig is a good entertainer and that comes through in the book.
