The autobiography everyone has been waiting for: a shockingly candid and raw confessional from an international treasure.
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 knockdown 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 amorous exploits and formed the greatest on-air team in the history of televised news. Along the way, he's 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. 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. We owe it to him, and to ourselves, to read it.
With never-before-seen photographs. Some in colour!
About the Author
Ron Burgundy is an award-winning News Anchorman and poet. He lives with his wife, Veronica, and dog, Baxter, in San Diego, California. When he is not making models of eighteenth-century sailing ships, he can often be found on the deck of his own boat, The Shining M'Lady, or supervising archaeological digs in and around his backyard. This is his first 'book.'
"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
