Overview

Crash and Burn by Artie Lange

Veteran comedian Artie Lange turns an unflinching eye and his signature wit on his perilous descent into drug addiction, life-threatening depression, and ultimately, his recovery, in the follow-up to his hilariously raw debut, the #1 New York Times bestseller Too Fat to Fish.

At a high point in his career, Artie Lange played a sold-out show in Carnegie Hall and totally killed—yet during his standing ovation, all he could think of were the two bags of heroin in his pocket. In the midst of a deep, self-destructive depression, addicted to heroin and prescription drugs, he lashed out at everyone around him—from his fellow cast members on The Howard Stern Show, to celebrity guests, to his longtime friends, and even his own family.

By turns dark and disturbing, hilarious and heartbreaking, and always drop-dead honest, the New York Times bestseller Crash and Burn lifts the curtain on Lange’s dangerous slide. For the first time, Artie reveals all: the full truth behind his now legendary Stern Show meltdown, his suicide attempt (which he relates in terrifying detail), surprising stints in rehab, and painful relapses. With the help and support of friends and family, Artie claws his way back, turning his life and career around. And despite his slip-ups, backslides, and permanent losses, Artie forges on.

A very well thought out and written account into the world and process of addiction. Some was almost too hard to bear, but knowing Mr. Lange  is on the right side of  the earth, a very rewarding read. Highly Recommended.

This book hit home with me. I am a drug addict. I never really wanted to change until I read this book. My health is failing, but that's never made me want to quit. I can relate to Artie, because I have also tried to commit suicide, back in 2012. I love Artie and I am rooting for him. He was an integral part of my favorite show, The Howard Stern Show. I know it is not going to be easy, because I have been an addict for 16 years. But I am only 32 and don't want to wake up at 44, like Artie, and realize that I need help. I hope other people are inspired by this book as I am. Even if you don't have addiction problems, this is a must read for Artie fans and even those who may not know who he is. Thank you Artie for letting us into your life.

You don't need to be an Artie Lange or Howard Stern fan to enjoy this book. I highly recommend this as a must read for anyone who may be interested in the entertainment industry. J

I wasn't even an avid listener of the stern show but this book is worth the read whether or not you're a fan. Insane stories throughout!

Wow....Artie. What a book. This should be required reading for any student that wants to try to understand drug addiction. The most heart-felt description of the descent into drug hell that I have ever read. I wish Artie the best. For so many years he made my rides to and from work bearable. He is a charming, witty talent that has now written two great books.

I wish I had been warned. I was a long time fan, loved Too Fat to Fish, and have been rooting for Artie all along. This book is a far cry from the incredibly vulnerable, considerate of others Artie portrayed in Too Fat. This book is chock full of redundancies (and I'm not just a sour grapes Red Sox fan-- Artie describes the term "psychotic Red Sox fan" as redundant). I lost count of the number of times he describes how many pills/drinks he needs to stave off withdrawal--at least EVERY chapter; and the number of times he mentions having bought his mother a house and a car. If this book is a clear representation of how he treats friends even when sober, I'm surprised he has any at all.
