Product Description

Review

"Forget the rest – the only celebrity memoir you need is Let Me Off At The Top! by Ron Burgundy. Actually by Will Ferrell, it’s published as his heroically coiffured newscaster Burgundy returns in Anchorman 2. As Burgundy insists: ‘‘This is a terrific book,’’(especially if you need 12 rules to survive a prison riot)." (Metro)

"Funnier than the original movie." (Heat, 5 star review)

"A very funny mock-ography, and, yes, it smells of rich mahogany." (Shortlist)

"Comedy gold." (Empire)

"An insight into the brilliant mind of the world's favourite anchorman." (FHM)

Book Description

The widely anticipated, fully authorised, tell-all autobiography from one of our greatest living broadcasters, Ron Burgundy.

By Mr. M. A. Reed TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 30 Dec. 2013
Format: Hardcover
This is a book. It has words, and sentences, and pages, and chapter breaks. But it is not just a book. The bible is JUST a book. This is one mans struggle against everything that is not leather bound, or smells of mahogany. Reading this book will make the hairs on your chest grow. This book will give you the power to Tame The Sun, and bend the world to your will. Just believe in yourself, and accept your superpower : YOU CAN READ HIS WORDS. It's like a self help book, and good Lord, you can learn so much from the word of not just THE Man, but also THE Anchorman.

Fear not. Every skill a man needs is here, including having a dog who can speak every animal language known. Sadly, Burgundy's voice in this book shows that whilst is the Alpha Anchorman, there are other people that can thunk of better words and can do a better write, but they aren't Ron Burgundy. And - if I read this - I can see the voice of the Man, which is authentically in tune with the films of his life, except a man alone, without his trusty Champ, Brick, or Brian Fantana - and thus, the singularity of his voice is also, somewhat dominating. But he is a man. The Anchorman, and that is a scientific fact. Like A Velvet Panther Of Style Stalking Your Feeble Mind, this is his manfesto. His vision. His Classy Life, and Other Musings.

Fantastic True Story of Ron's life to date.

The only thing lacking is that neither is it leather bound or smelling of rich mahogany.

"Let Me Off at the Top!" by Ron Burgundy is the autobiography of famous News Anchorman back from the 70's.

This book will make you laugh to tears, and to older readers will be a great reminder of a time long gone when television was a different medium, when there was no 24/7 news coverage and people were more relaxed.
In such a time, back in the 70's, Ronald "Ron" Burgundy started working as anchorman for a local San Diego station and soon became very popular due to relaxed and unconventional behavior during his TV shows.

And while viewers for the last eight years have enjoyed watching the movie made based on first years of his career (whose sequel will follow in December), the book is showing another behind-the-scenes view into the real life of a man considered by many people the greatest ever living news anchor.

Ron is telling that it took him eight years to write this book due to his extensive research about own life, starting from his beginnings in a forsaken Iowa coal mining town, followed by his education on Chewbacca High School up to the becoming known and beloved TV star.
In book he'll mention the many known and unknown heroes of past times, and only mentioning some of these names will cause laughter and inevitable memories.

So if you want to spend some good time with TV star from another time, remembering the good old youth, don't miss this book.

Though I'm a bit younger and some of people he mentioned I don't know or can remember together with the younger readers I can enjoy his funny work and realize how life then used to be different and more relaxed.

Therefore, I recommend reading this well-written and funny autobiography by Ron Burgundy.

Given time this book will surely go down as a literary classic. It not only gives an insight to the thoughts and inner workings of the great Ron Burgundy but also gives great life lessons that everyone can learn from. From '12 rules to survive a prison riot' to 'what kind of breathe turns a woman on' everyone is sure to learn something from reading this book.

Like many classic books this should be passed from generation to generation for all to enjoy and learn from.

In Ron's words he writes a hell of a book.

Obviously Im a great fan of the Anchorman.
This "Autobiography" will not disappoint. All those confusing bits that made no sense in the movies, will become in more vague and strange. Enjoy!

Don't you hate it when reading a book for several nights in a row you have to struggle to remember what you have already read the last night? You know, what has happened so far and who did what in the previous chapter. Well, in Let Me Off at the Top! you don't have to worry about anything like that because it is not about the old boring chronological type of narrative but a collection of stories that are little if at all interconnected. There is even a chapter on the history of Mexico, naturally written by the man himself! At the same time it is an easy going collection of Burgundian wisdom and surrealism. Turn off your brain and enjoy the ride!

If you're a fan of Anchorman, like me, you'll love this hilarious read. Ron Burgundy takes us on a titillating history ride of his life, from his humble beginnings to how he became classy in San Diego. The side notes with the leaf blower and his neighbour tickled me immensely.

While I really enjoyed this book, it only gets a 3 as, well, compared to the Alan partridge autobiography it doesn't come close to matching its greatness. Still, a funny read, if not somewhat random in places (The whole Mexico chapter wasn't really funny and I could have done without it) but that aside, Ron Burgundy has written a classy book non-the-less.
