Overview

For 42 years, nationally syndicated talk radio host and NYT bestselling author Neal Boortz has been entertaining, aggravating, enraging and captivating radio audiences. In his memoir, Maybe I Should Just Shut Up And Go Away, he looks back across the decades and shares the often-hilarious reality of what happens behind the scenes when you’re a talk radio icon. Longtime friend with national radio greats Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity, he tells how those relationships began in the hot seat of competition. Tributes are included from Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Home Depot Founder Bernie Marcus and 2012 presidential nominee Herman Cain. Though early predictions by those who knew him in his youth cast Boortz as a sure prospect to become a preacher, he took a different route to educating the masses. Longtime listeners are certain to become enthusiastic readers as Boortz finally tips his hat to more than four decades of teeing up controversy, political education and general entertainment for audiences across the country to enjoy—and tells all they’ve been wanting to know but couldn’t get anyone to share until now.

    This was such a great book I read it from cover to cover nonstop

    This was such a great book I read it from cover to cover nonstop. And I couldn't stop hearing Neal's voice the entire time. It will have you laughing and crying in turns. I'm honestly sad that I've finished. I think I might just have to go read some more of Neal's books just to fill the void.

    Love you, Neal. I wish you all the best in retirement.

    AMF Neal!

    This was a great book, especially for fans of Mr. Boortz. It is a very quick and easy read and i found myself smiling nearly throughout the whole book, and laughing hysterically at times.

    It is an insightful and hugely entertaining look at the career of the Talkmaster. Neals' character shines through his stories as a caring, if often brutally vociferous, man of integrity, quick wit, loving (especiaaly towards his home and work families), and ultimately entertaining titan of radio.

    Screw the Marconis Neal, you have the admiration and appreciation of millions of U.S. patriots.

    Agree or Disagree, an Excellent Read

    Neil is not afraid of expressing his views. Whether you agree or disagree with him, his viewpoints are always well thought out and make you think. Great insight and humorously presented. Hope you write more, Neil!

    Laughed a lot and was surprised

    Let's start by saying , I like Neal Boortz. I was worried the book may a little to preachy and soap box for me, I read for entertainment. I really enjoyed and recommend the book. It flows easily and quickly.
    If you are a Boortz fan you will like it, if not a fan.... you might like it too. There is more to Boortz than a mouth, who knew : )

    Very entertaining!

    Once again Boortz tells it like it is! I wish more people could be so candid and honest. I sure will miss his radio show. He's one of a kind!

    Why bother?

    Neal surely must have had more fun writing this than I had reading it.
