Description de l'ouvrage

19 novembre 2013

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.

AUTHOR’S NOTE
 
It took me eight years to write this book. The research alone—fact-checking, reading the source materials, asking questions—was endless and I didn’t care for it that much. I just didn’t. But I persisted because I knew what I was doing was truly very important. A book is never the work of one man. Many people contribute to its failure, or as in this case, its success. Dorathoy Roberts at the Harvard Widener Library was instrumental in recovering so many facts and nautical terms. Janart Prancer aided my work immensely with her near-encyclopedic understanding of rare manuscripts in the Herzog August Library, Wolfenbüttel, Germany. Esther Naus­baum, head librarian at the prestigious Kirkland School of Dinosaurs, was instrumental in tracking down indispensable paleoecological records for chapter 15 in this book. Herb Kolowsky was ever watchful and patient, reading over many drafts of the manuscript as well as cleaning my gutters. I con­sulted with my dear friend and lover Doris Kearns Goodwin over many breakfasts in bed. Her sharp intellect and sharper teeth found their way into practically every page. Although we are no longer lovers because I don’t know why, her knowledge of presidential history is the basis for chapter 12. Her dogged enthusiasm for the project was only outpaced by her enthusi­asm for lovemaking, which I could barely equal. I don’t know what to say about Doris really except if she’s still out there and she would like another bounce, I would be game. Johnny Bench was an invaluable spell-checker. Lars Mankike brought an artistic eye to the project and a kind of European nihilism that was completely unnecessary. We fought often and he got what he deserved, so I’m not even sure why I’m thanking him here, but it’s too late now. Sandy Duncan is full of boundless energy. What can I say about Veronica Corningstone, the love of my life? We’ve had our ups and downs for sure, and usu­ally the downs were because of something stupid she said or did while losing her blood. You really can’t fault women for being irrational. Blood drips out of them willy-nilly and there’s nothing they can do about it. It’s like being a hemophiliac. I suspect science will one day cure them of this blood-dripping disease but until then, Vive la différence. Finally Baxter, my dog and best friend, saw me through many tough hours as I struggled with my emotions during this proj­ect. His love and support sustained me through extremely dif­ficult excavations into my past. Only Baxter knows the pain I have lived. Our nightly talks formed the basis for what you hold in your hand now.  
 
WHY WRITE THIS BOOK?
 
Does mankind really need another book dumped onto the giant garbage heap of books already out there? Is there some pressing desire for the wisdom of a humble News Anchor in this world? Will it add to the great literary achievements throughout time or will it be lost in a swamp of trivial scrib­bling like pornography—devoured and then destroyed out of shame? I stand here (I write standing up) and I say, “No!” No, this book will NOT be lost! This book is necessary. It’s an im­portant work from an important man. I was the number one News Anchor in all of San Diego. My name is Ron Burgundy and what you have in your hands is a very big deal. It’s...my…life. It’s my words. It’s my gift to you.

Revue de presse

"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) --Ce texte fait référence à l'édition Broché .

1.0 étoiles sur 5 A turkey! 17 février 2014
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
Although it is in the spoof genre, it comes across as just badly written by an obscure failing high school student in the worst creative writing class ever taught by a gym teacher. Avoid this turkey!!! Or study it as a lesson in what NOT to do in writing!

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Where is the LEATHERBOUND Edition!!!??? 3 décembre 2013
Par chas - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
Great book, but I'm deducting one star simply (and inexplicably) because the book is not offered in a leatherbound edition. How am I supposed to display this cheap hardcover book in my apartment which consists solely of many leatherbound books and a smell of rich mahogany!?

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Hair Larious 4 décembre 2013
Par James Montgomery - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
Possibly the funniest book I've EVER read. It's not too short just about the right length. I made the mistake of reading this on the train which probably made me look like a laughing lunatic. Alot of humor/comedy books make you chuckle or smirk, with this book however there were many, many times when I couldn't continue reading as I was laughing too hard.
I've never been a big fan of Will Ferrell I've always thought of him as a poor man's Jim Carrey. This book has changed my opinion of him & I'll certainly pay more attention to his work.
Extremely highly recommended if you have a sense of humor. Do you get the idea - I love this book & will read it again.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Steal this book (preferably, from a struggling local bookstore) 21 novembre 2013
Par Matthew A Foreman - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
Long have I yearned for the perfect companion for my grueling treks through the Himalayas, a settling come-down from the adrenaline highs that come with ripping out the throat of a wild mastodon with my bare hands, killing two birds with the throw of a single stone, stealing clothing from the homeless, or harpooning a barracuda while riding on the back of a killer whale. Now that I have found this book, I yearn no more. If you're searching for musings and truths of reassurance to keep you warm at night, this book is not that. This is a book for real men of genius and brawn. Thrill seeking adventure bandits who aren't afraid to step on a few little, less successful people on their way to the top. Burgundy out.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 It's finally here. Ron, it took you long enough, damnit. 29 novembre 2013
Par Nolan - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
These are the words you'll be saying on your deathbed: I read a hell of a book. Take it from me. I've only read the front flap and the disclaimer before the preface -- and boy was I impressed. Now, you may know who I am. I've been known to sing a bit. Croon a few. Goulet.

Ron and I go way back. He and I used to hunt giant frogs on the shoulders of silverbacks in the Congonese jungles. Let me tell you, Ron is as every bit a man as he says he is...and then some. I remember the time when he and Baxter saved me from drowning in the jacuzzi up at my San Diegan penthouse. Those were the days. Enough scotch and cocaine to take on the Dragon in that new Hobbit movie. But that's neither here nor there. Goulet.

You know, it brings a tear to my eye when I look on the cover of Ron's book and see a man that I want to hate but can't -- because he's my blood brother. I mean seriously. One night, after bare-chested mountain wrestling on the slopes of Kinnick Kinnick, we used a hamburger spatula to slice open the skin just above our nipples. We embraced each other like men, mixed our blood as if on the barbarian battlefields of old. Ever since, Ron's career has taken off, and I couldn't be happier, albeit with a mixture of jealous rage. Ron, thanks for telling your story. It's about damn time.

- Robert Goulet
