Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Barry Farber is truly one of my mentors. I got an early and lasting understanding of the way the world really works from listening to this great pioneer of talk radio. It's an honor for me now to publish his book. — JOSEPH FARAH

Barry Farber was a standout when it was difficult to get a talk show. Unlike today, very few people hosted such shows in Barry's era. You had to be among the best to be hired to host long-form talk. Barry Farber was...the best. He was defining. He's always been in rarified air. — RUSH LIMBAUGH

He blazed the trail for all of us today in talk radio. I am honored to call him a friend and a great American. — SEAN HANNITY

Barry Farber is the radio host all other hosts look up to and strive be. We are lucky to have such a fine man blaze the trail before us. — RUSTY HUMPHRIES
