"Traces Beck's personal history from his troubled childhood through his years as a 'morning zoo' DJ to his sudden and meteoric rise to the conservative media heap. [The author] pays special attention to Beck's transformation from alcoholic-snorting, failed disc jockey without a political thought in his head to wealthy, bile-spewing, right-wing demagogue." -- Dust jacket.
