Publisher's Summary

Easy For You To Say is "Stuttering" John Melendez's memoir of his childhood being bullied in school for his stutter; his years as an on-air personality with The Howard Stern Show; and his subsequent 10-year career as a writer and on-air announcer for Jay Leno's Tonight Show. It details his famously acerbic relationships with celebrities he interviewed/insulted (Raquel Welch once punched him in the face). In the audiobook, Howard Stern emerges as a surprisingly mean, stingy, and megalomaniacal boss - and Jay Leno as a seeming sufferer from OCD.

Was expecting more

Hmmmm... I was expecting more never before heard stories. A lot of the stories we're talked about on the Stern show. John is obviously holding back. You teased on your podcast and Twitter that this would be a more juicy, revealing, tell all book. It's obvious you're still scared of Stern. Too bad.

WAST OF TIME...

John Melendez is a ego maniac. I find the majority of this book hard to belive.

I despise John, but good book. However...

...I cannot bring myself to recommend this book, nor rate it highly.

John is a horrible speaker and a worst reader. This is book poorly edited, poorly researched.

In between two chapters, John can be heard speaking to whoever is engineering. John mangles the language and mispronounces word after word.

Then, there’s the part where he references the movie “The King’s Speech” where explains the movie as being about ‘King Edward’ when the movie is about George VI.

Trent's Take

Interesting behind the scenes explanation of a number of Howard Stern and Tonight Show stories.
Very funny at times. Well worth the listen.

Misrepresented

This is no where close to the juicy tell all promised it’s mostly boring personal stories and the few stern stories are ones already told ...it’s one of those books that after half a chapter you realize you weren’t paying attention and don’t remember any of it just to reread it and realize it wasn’t worth the extra time to be just as dissatisfied

Horrible

This was the worst purchase I’ve ever made. Don’t waste your time, money or audible credits.

Good but wrong about Jackie & Artey...

Weird all the praise he places on Artey while he does not properly explain how important Jackie was on the show and how Jackie attempted to rightly obtain a fair salary for the show staff.

This Is the Best Audio Book Ever!

I was a religious Stern listener for over a decade. This audio book, extremely well narrated by John, took me right back to the Glory Days of that show! The only thing better than bringing me right back to that great time, was the inside information that I wasn't aware of. I don't want to reveal or spoil any of the shocking and revealing stories in this kick butt tell-all for the potential listener. So all I'll say is, if you were a fan of the Stern Show back when it was still good, you definitely want to hear some of this dirt for sure! 5 out of 5 stars till the cows come home!!

Good job stupid.

A great audiobook for the Howard stern fan of yesteryear and a honest insight on the behind the scenes of the HS Show. I disliked Stuttering John for betraying Howard but this audiobook put things into perspective. I'm glad he left that toxic environment and found his happiness.

Must Hear for Stern Fans

Love John and even the mistakes left in the audio book (you can hear john talking to producer throughout the work).
