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.

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.

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.

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.
