Private Parts is the first book by American radio personality Howard Stern. Private Parts was an instant commercial success upon release.
A paperback edition with extra material was released in The autobiographical chapters of the book were adapted into the feature film Private Parts , which starred Stern and his radio show staff playing themselves.
This release was supported with a second paperback print of the book.
In January of that year, the show was syndicated to ten markets and had become the first to be number one in New York City, Los Angeles, and Philadelphia simultaneously. However, development for a feature film with New Line Cinema based on his Fartman character was delayed and ultimately fell through in By writing a book himself, Stern said that "it will at least be my words.
When Stern announced the book, he said that his initial suggestion of Mein Kampf: Settling Accounts , a spin on Mein Kampf by Adolf Hitler , for the book's title, was rejected by the publisher as it would be unpopular with Jewish readers.
Stern wrote the book in approximately six months. He thought it was going to be easy to produce at first, but he looked back on the project as the most difficult of his career at the time. Regan lived in Stern's guest house for six weeks over the summer of with her then two-year-old daughter and nanny to help complete the book on time. Sloman also stayed over at Stern's house on weekends.
She assured that despite her input, "the words are Howard's". Around the time of the book's announcement, Stern attempted to find his writing voice by sketching initial ideas onto paper and teaming with his radio show producer Gary Dell'Abate to retrace his career, emphasising on stories and anecdotes from behind the scenes.
Each chapter of the book features a different girl holding a card indicating the chapter number.
Other early book titles included War and Piss , I, Moron , I, Moron: King of All Idiots , and Penis ;   the latter was considered due to the hilarity of the potential newspaper headline: "Howard Stern's 'Penis' is a best seller".
By August , as a compromise with the rejections, Stern and the publisher reached a compromise with Private Parts ,  first suggested by Stern's co-host, Robin Quivers. Stern picked psychotherapists Sheenah Hankin and Richard Wessler, who were not aware of him, to read the book and give an analysis. Their eight-page profile on Stern closes the book. Hayden produced quotes from fifty celebrities and said it was worth the time and effort because he was a big fan of Stern.
In the book, Stern mistakenly credited Hayden as "Chaunce Howell". The publisher had it altered, removing the women entirely and covering Stern's genital area with a banner presenting the book's title.
The shots that were rejected were printed in the book. Private Parts was released on October 7, , receiving an initial printing of , copies. The sales were supported by Stern's book signing tour of various cities across the United States, with the largest crowd attendances ever.

The success was in spite of mixed reviews and the refusal by several stores to carry the book over objections to its content. With the considerable audience from his radio show, Stern was able to sell the first printing of his book within hours of its release.

Like Stern's radio show, it received a great deal of opposition due to its content. It is number 86 on the American Library Association 's list of the " Most Frequently challenged books Between and Stern's venture into literature drew much of the same criticism as his radio show.
Private Parts drew favorable comparisons to Lenny Bruce and his book How to Talk Dirty and Influence People , but it was also characterized as nothing more than an extension of his radio show with little more to offer.
Stern was praised for his populist message and attracting a group of people who normally do not read either by choice or for lack of ability. Another frequent criticism was that the material was juvenile, with little more to offer than stories of "breasts, behinds, penises, masturbation, defecation, and the expulsion of gas".
As the host of a highly rated radio show, the comparison between the book and his radio show was inevitable. The radio show was often the starting point from which the reviewer based their opinion of the book. Another frequent observation about the book was that it was juvenile both in its topics and layout. This included being compared to a comic book for its heavy use of pictures and varying fonts.
