The autobiography every true American has been waiting for: a shockingly candid and raw confessional from a national treasure.
From his humble beginnings in a desolate Iowa coal mining town, his years at Our Lady Queen of Chewbacca High School to his odds-defying climb to the dizzying heights of becoming America’s most trusted and beloved television News Anchor, Ron Burgundy pulls no punches in Let Me Off at the Top!
In his very own words Burgundy reveals his most private thoughts, his triumphs and his disappointments. His life reads like an adventure story complete with knock down fights, beautiful women and double-fisted excitement on every page. He has hunted jackalopes with Bobby Kennedy and Peter Lawford, had more than his share of his amorous exploits, and formed the greatest on-air team in the history of televised news. Along the way, he hobnobbed with people you wish you knew and some you honestly wish you didn't -- celebrities, presidents, presidents' wives, celebrities' wives, dogs, and, of course Veronica Corningstone, the love of his life. Walter Cronkite, Barbra Streisand, Katie Couric, the list goes on. Who didn’t Mr. Burgundy, or “Ron” as he is known to his friends, rub elbows with in the course of his colorful and often criminal life?
This may well be the most thrilling book ever written, by a man of great physical, moral and spiritual strength and not surprisingly a great literary talent as well. This book deserves a real shot at a Pulitzer Prize. In fact if it doesn’t win one then we will finally have proof that the Pulitzer is rigged.
Ron Burgundy has taken the time to write a book. We owe it to him, as honest Americans, to read it.

This was one of the first books I read all the way through, and enjoyed it.

I loved it. If you're a fan of Anchorman you can't go wrong with this book. This is the book America wants, nay, world needs, to read.

Absurdity at it's finest! Monty Python-esque... bloody brilliant! A laugh or two every single page... a belly laugh or two every single chapter... includes a story about Jackalope hunting that cracks me up every time I think about it... like now: HA! If you like Will Farrell's brand of humor then this book is most definitely for you! Sublime absurdity! But if you don't like Will Farrell's brand of humor well, geez... lighten up.

Typical Ron Burgundy humour. Love him or scoff him.

It was a great escape to the land of Americana.

Enjoy the bliss of ignorance in a world of communications.
