The long–awaited and vastly entertaining autobiography of Scott Ian, a founding member of legendary, groundbreaking, and influential thrash–metal band Anthrax.
In this fast–paced, humorous, and revealing memoir from guitarist Scott Ian—the leader of a band that proved brutality and fun don’t have to be mutually exclusive—Ian tells his life story, starting with his upbringing as a nerdy Jewish boy in Queens who had his first musical epiphany when he saw The Who on television. Not long after that, he saw KISS at Madison Square Garden and realized what he wanted to do with his life.
I’m the Man covers Ian’s dysfunctional home life and his escape through the turbulent world of heavy metal. It also chronicles the complete history of Anthrax, from the band’s formation to their triumphant performance at Ian’s beloved Yankee Stadium on the Big Four Tour with Metallica, Slayer, and Megadeth.

B.J. Novak (The Office, Amazing Spider-Man 2) appears at the Brattle Theatre on Thursday October 2, 2014 at 6:00 PM!
Harvard Book Store and 826 Boston welcome back actor, writer, and humorist B.J. NOVAK for a reading from his first book for kids, the innovative The Book with No Pictures. Tickets are on sale online only at bjnovak.eventbrite.com.
You might think a book with no pictures seems boring and serious. Except . . . here’s how books work. Everything written on the page has to be said by the person reading it aloud. Even if the words say . . .
BLORK. Or BLUURF.
Even if the words are a preposterous song about eating ants for breakfast, or just a list of astonishingly goofy sounds like BLAGGITY BLAGGITY and GLIBBITY GLOBBITY.
Cleverly irreverent and irresistibly silly, The Book with No Pictures is one that kids will beg to hear again and again. (And parents will be happy to oblige.)
