Easy For You To Say is "Stuttering" John Melendez's memoir of his childhood being bullied in school for his stutter; his years as an on-air personality with The Howard Stern Show; and his subsequent ten-year career as a writer and on-air announcer for Jay Leno's Tonight Show. It details his famously acerbic relationships with celebrities he interviewed/insulted (Raquel Welch once punched him in the face). In the book, Howard Stern emerges as a surprisingly mean, stingy, and megalomaniacal boss--and Jay Leno as a seeming sufferer from OCD.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"How does a guy who stutters wind up as the announcer on the longest running and most popular late night TV show in history? Being funny certainly helps, but as you will discover it's a long and winding road from Long Island to Hollywood. Why do some celebrities love him and others can't stand him? What did John say within earshot of the First Lady that almost had me ban him from the studio? The man has no filter and that's what makes this book an interesting read. Many times I wanted to kill him, hopefully there's still time."
--Jay Leno

"I first met John when he guested on an episode of Wings, playing a housebound, whiny lunatic who injures himself and sues the property owner. He was made for the role. I'd been a fan of John's since his Howard Stern Show days, when his jaw-dropping and fearless antics earned him the title Hero of the Stupid. It may have been a joke, but given the state of our world these days, doesn't everyone need a hero?"
--Steven Weber, actor from Wings

"John's authentic, hilarious show biz career heroically started from scratch and now sadly is once again starting from scratch. All the tell-nothing details are in this brilliantly written book."
--Richard Lewis, comedian from Curb Your Enthusiasm

"As a reoccurring guest on the Howard Stern Show, I would always get super nervous days before going live on air. However, once I got to the studio, I was always greeted with smiles and kindness, especially from John. I'm not sure if it was because inevitably I was going to be naked on the show and John would be in the studio when it happened...Just kidding...I think. John was very professional and never once did I feel uncomfortable. That says A LOT! Continued success to John!"
--Tabitha Stevens, Hall of Fame Adult Film Star

"I've watched John go from Howard Stern guerrilla interviewer to announcer on Jay Leno's Tonight Show. I have the utmost respect for how John overcame the immense challenges and odds in his life to reach the top of the Hollywood heap. It's an honor to call him friend."
--Rudy Sarzo, bassist for Quiet Riot, Ozzy Osbourne, Whitesnake, and many more

"This will be the only book ever written that takes us behind the curtain and inside the inner workings of what was once the Greatest Show on Earth. John is the only one from Howard Stern Show to tell it like it is. It's a riveting read since John doesn't stutter when he writes."
--A.J Benza, author of '74 and Sunny

"As a reoccurring guest on the Howard Stern Show, I would always get super nervous days before going live on air. However, once I got to the studio, I was always greeted with smiles and kindness, especially from John. I'm not sure if it was because inevitably I was going to be naked on the show and John would be in the studio when it happened. Just kidding...I think. John was very professional and never once did I feel uncomfortable."
--Tabitha Stevens, Hall of Fame Adult Film Star

"Working with Stuttering John Melendez was always an adventure; the countless interviews I produced for him with celebrities and at events were always a blast! He always took a passionate and aggressive approach with everything he does. If that passion was put into the writing of this book, then it will certainly be an entertaining and honest read. He's done it all radio, TV, mooching so much money off me that I lost count, and now a book!"
--Doug Z. Goodstein, Supervising Producer, Howard Stern on E!
