    No shock
    He was on most major talk shows & the "suicide & drugs" aspect of the book is very interesting

    FCC could write a book, then.

    "My Life Out-of-Control: A story of 3 beers a night."

    How could this be, no Stern show appearance and no forward from a wig wearing, Hampton's half a fag and he still made the NYTimes list?

    I read his book and I liked it.

    ...and I'm happy for him.

    It may have not been 100% truth, but I felt like it filled in some holes and it was interesting.

    Good for him. I hope he doesn't heap credit on Stern for it.
    The problem with Robin and Lisa G's book not doing well, isn't because there is no Stern effect, its because Howard Stern does not want to acknowledge who is real audience is. Its the not MAFB's, old ladies looking for recipes or to be hip with their kids, TMZ-BethO crowd, or wigged-mensuck amphibian demographic, its guys, particularly older dudes like Ronnie or Artie and to a small extent real women who put up with them.

    I LOVE that Artie is on the best sellers list with no help from Stern.

    Meanwhile, Lisa and Robin's books sales with the "power" of the Stern show have been abysmal.

    I didn't read that whole thread, is that how much he was drinking a day and it was causing a problem?

    My loser speculation noone cares about: Maybe one of the people he mentioned he was mad at was Buchwald for blocking the book for so long to negate the intrigue that came w/ Artie being back on the scene after his whole ordeal, but now that he's been out there for a while now maybe they figured interest would fade and book sales would show it.

    If you read the book be sure to review this appearance before you read chapter 5.
