From one of radio's loudest, orneriest, most beloved, and highest-rated sports radio personalities, a bold and hilarious memoir of sports, manhood, and what it is to be a fan. In 1991, fresh from college, Craig Carton drove a crappy 1980 Buick to Buffalo, New York, to interview for a job at WGR radio.

In 1991, fresh from college, Craig Carton drove a crappy 1980 Buick to Buffalo, New York, to interview for a job at WGR radio. The station manager who hired him was the first to recognize his considerable on-air talent, and helped start what has become a legendary radio career. Often compared to Howard Stern, Carton has hosted a series of highly rated shows, and in 2007 he joined WFAN, where he and Boomer Esiason host an eponymous show every morning for four hours out of a studio in New York City. In this debut book, Carton invites the reader to join him as he recounts tales from his suburban youth, defends his long-held love affair with the New York Jets, reminisces about the shenanigans of some of the highest paid and most celebrated athletes playing today, and reflects on his work as one of radio’s craftiest, most hilarious personalities ever to get behind the microphone.

    Ooof, this was difficult to read in light of recent events. Especially the part where he says his greatest fear is going to jail. I know, he's an adult and he made the decision to break the law, but I liked him on 101.5 and I feel kind of bad for him. He seems to have a gambling addiction, which led him to do what he did. As for the book, while the writing certainly isn't the best (his repeated use of the non-word "booshie" annoyed me), it's not the worst either.

The book was entertaining and I learned a lot about Mr. Carton that I didn't know. He's very smart, driven and hard-working and there's a lot more to him than the guy who can come across as a jerk on the radio. It really is a shame what happened to him.

    Craig Carton only gets at most 15 minutes a day to make an impression on me. He is the co-host of the morning show that I listen to on my way to work. I can safely say that I enjoy those 15 minutes because of him. When I heard on the radio that he was coming out with a book I knew I had to get it. Not having a lot of time to set a side for reading I had a hard time putting this book down. It is just a collection of stories from his youth to present day.

If you don't know who he is the stories are entertaining enough and relatable enough that you will fly through it. A great quick read.

    Carton is a talk radio host who used to be on NJ101.5, and is now one WFAN in NYC with Boomer Esiason. I know him from 101.5. He talks a little about his childhood, and then how he got into radio, starting out broadcasting at a station that was in an old Victorian house, and how he moved on to more money and bigger stations. He also has a couple stories about how a friend or a boss tried to set him up with a hooker and he always declined.

It's a quick entertaining read.

    A funny, engaging, quick read with some R-rated tales from his rise through the radio ranks that he probably couldn't have said when he was on WFAN. The audiobook version is read by Carton, who narrates as if he was live on the radio or doing a podcast, in a fresh, engaging style. Given the recent charges against him, Carton is due for another memoir if he comes out of it without having to serve any time.

    I vaguely remember Craig Carton during his early 90's stint on Cleveland's WWWE, now WTAM. Loudmouth was a typical account of life as a radio personality but with interesting humor and stories to fill in between stories of bad radio station managers and co-workers.

    As an avid fan of the Boomer and Carton show, this book was a no-brainer for me. This is not just a typical "sports guy" book, but rather a deep look into the fascinating life of a man who envisioned a dream and captured it by any means necessary.

    I really enjoyed getting an inside peek at "Carton"...I have enjoyed listening to the Boomer and Carton radio show for the last number of years. The book was generally what I expected nothing deep but entertaining none the less.

    Craig Carton's 'Loudmouth' is uncensored, inappropriate and incredibly entertaining. For my full review, please visit my blog post. Craig Carton's 'Loudmouth' is uncensored, inappropriate and incredibly entertaining. For my full review, please visit my blog post.

    It was ok. He can be funny at times. It wasn't my favorite read but it wasn't the worst. It was ok. He can be funny at times. It wasn't my favorite read but it wasn't the worst.

    I liked this book about half as much as Carton likes himself, so I liked this a lot. Interesting quick read if you are a fan.

    Quick, fun read. Focused on his childhood and career, and written for fans. Enjoyed learning that his friendship with Boomer is legit.
