(Crown Archetype, 2013, 224 pages)
Is this the most enjoyable book you will ever read? That depends on your ability to appreciate world-class literature. What is without doubt is that this is the most important book you will ever read. The rich and fascinating life of legendary anchorman Ron Burgundy is the stuff of myth. His memoir reads like the chronicle of a Greek god but with more brawling and better hair. Whether he is recounting his rough upbringing among the perpetually burning mine fires of Haggleworth, IA, dispelling the most popular myths about his hair, or writing a scholarly history of Mexico, this epic account of some of the world’s most important events and most intriguing anecdotes will keep you absolutely enthralled. The gritty and real perspective that Burgundy offers on the daily life of an anchorman, as well as the dirt he dishes on the likes of Walter Cronkite, Dan Rather, and Brian Williams, will ensure that you never watch the nightly news with the same innocence again. This is the perfect companion volume for those who loved Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy and who are looking forward to Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues – both of which are factual documentaries about Burgundy’s life.
