Product Description

From the Back Cover

Now with more than forty pictures of naked breasts, Howard Stern's Miss America offers remarkable revelations about:

Howard's secret meeting with Michael Jackson!
The Stern family pact with Adolf Hitler!
Howard's never-before-revealed mental illness!

With chapters on Howard's ongoing battle with the FCC and his legendary campaign for governor of the state of New York, Miss America covers some of the greatest news stories of recent history—from the Atlantic City penis sandwich to an exclusive with Jackie O's embalming-fluid delivery boy and of course, Philadelphia's own fecal-obsessed Uncle Ed.

About the Author

In addition to his role as a former Miss America, Howard Stern is the author of the phenomenal bestseller Private Parts and is the governor of the state of New York. His radio show is No. 1 in the whole wide world except for the former Yugoslav republics and most of Africa. He also is co-author of the Oprah Winfrey Cookbook and the ghostwriter of The Bridges of Madison County. He received an Academy Award nomination for Best Screenplay Adaptation for Schindler's List.

After his first book "Private Parts," it seemed like Howard
Stern would never be able to top himself. But with his honesty
and humor, he was able to make a good thing even better on his
sophomore effort as an author. Though "Miss America," is not for
the faint of heart, and probably wouldn't be enjoyed unless you
are familiar with his outrageous comedy, it is still a masterpiece
in itself.
"Miss America" not only is written beautifully, but is full of
photographs and artwork that only add to the books mystique. And
if there was something that you thought you didn't know about Stern,
read "Miss America" and you'll find out a lot more than you ever wanted
to know about him.
As Stern takes you on his adventures through cybersex, his
confidential meeting with Michael Jackson, and his battle with
O.C.D. (Obsesive Compulsive Disorder) his brilliance as an author
and as a comedian come through loud and clear. And by the end of
"Miss America" you'll understand why he has dubbed himself the
"King of All Media.

I really enjoy Howard's radio show and bought this book based on the reviews on Amazon. Similar to the comments listeners make about the radio show, I kept reading to see what would come next. I was really disappointed. Things that may be funny on the radio just seem trite when written. The account of the destruction of DeBella, Philadelphia's ex-top DJ, showed sadism through the airways at its worst. Not just content to be #1, Howard had to destroy people's lives.
Stick with the radio/tv but leave this art form alone.

1.0 out of 5 stars An extremely unfunny book; Garbage 23 Aug 1998
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Howard Stern was obviously trying to top his last book "Private Parts" with this one but failed miserably. Not only does the book lack the structure that "Parts" had, but it's just not funny. Also one can see through Stern's attacks on Rush Limbaugh and realize that it's Stern's jealousy over never being able to reach the success or respectablility of Limbaugh. That part of the book, like the rest, gives the image of Stern as a desperate dinosaur sinking fast into the tar pit of obscurity.

3.0 out of 5 stars Sophmore Stern Proves He's No One Hit Wonder 22 Mar 1999
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
In Stern's second farce about life on the radio, he goes further than himself and describes the on-air personalities that make up his radio show. He touches on guests, politics, his mayoral campaign, private moments and more. Compared to the first book that spawned a movie, this is just a basic sequel. It comes through in humor, but some of the character studies are boring and too long. Let's get on with the lesbians, please. Fans of Stern and fans of hating Stern should unite to enjoy this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars sick......... 19 Feb 2000
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is the foulest most disgustingly sick book ever written in publishing history. It is also the funniest book i've ever had the pleasure to read. We are missing out so badly in England,not being able to listen to Stern's broadcast. Thank God for the good guys and gals at Bravo for bringing us the "E" version of The Howard Stern show. Rush to get your credit card details now, and pace your order for Miss America. Paul Tompkins.

5.0 out of 5 stars Miss America is too hot for words! 22 April 1999
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
There she is Howard Stern's Miss America. She might not win the award for Miss Congeniality, but she's a sexy read! Speaking of hot reads, I also loved Dan Wagner's Getting To Howard: The Odyssey of an Obsessed Howard Stern Fan. Dan's description of a book signing for Miss America is hilarious. Howard's next book should be titled Mr. America and have a photo of KC on the cover. By the way, Baba-Booey!

a bathroom rack visual to oogle during pauses.
Stern is the Bill Clinton of invasive celebs in our lives which causes the meek and the squimish to avoid funny flix like "Private Parts" and this follow-up gem called "Miss America". Howard, like Woody Allen, is a non-template, insightful and easy to despise because of his persona. READ "MISS AMERICA" PLS!
