Stern AWOL on Ablow


I picked up a copy of Dr. Keith Ablow’s, “Living the Truth” on the Barnes and Noble remainder table last night.  $5.98 marked down from $25.98.  I’ve heard the doctor on the Stern show and have been impressed with his direct, almost jargon-free approach to people’s emotional problems.

What struck me was that the publisher, Little,Brown, didn’t list appearances on the Sten Show among Ablow’s credits.  Good Housekeeping, Tyra Banks, the O’Reilly Factor, Good Morning America—but not a single mention of the fact that millions hear the doctor at his best on Stern. His on-air treatment of Riley Mrtin is some of the best radio—and therapy—you will ever hear. (I only wish he’d do the same for Ronnie the Frustrated Jewish Limo Driver).

Why no Stern mention?  My guess is that Ablow and his publisher believe it is mainstream poison—another example of how Stern can be at the cutting edge, and constantly get cut out.
