#1 New York Times Bestseller A touching, funny, heart-wrenching, and triumphant memoir from one of the biggest names in radio, the host of The Bobby Bones Show, one of the most listened-to drive time morning radio shows in the nation. Growing up poor in Mountain Pine, Arkansas, with a young, addicted mom, Bobby Estell fell in love with country music. Abandoned by his father at the age of five, Bobby saw the radio as his way out—a dream that came true in college when he went on air at the Henderson State University campus station broadcasting as Bobby Bones, while simultaneously starting The Bobby Bones Show at 105.9 KLAZ. Bobby’s passions were pop, country music, and comedy, and he blended the three to become a tastemaker in the country music industry, heard by millions daily. Bobby broke the format of standard country radio, mixing country and pop with entertainment news and information, and has interviewed some of the biggest names in the business, including Luke Bryan, Taylor Swift, Blake Shelton, Tim McGraw, Lady Antebellum, and Jason Aldean. Yet despite the glamour, fame, and money, Bobby has never forgotten his roots, the mom and grandmother who raised him, the work ethic he embraced which saved him and encouraged him to explore the world, and the good values that shaped him. In this funny, poignant memoir told in Bobby’s distinctive patter, he takes fans on a tour of his road to radio. Bobby doesn’t shy away from the curves he continues to navigate—including his obsessive-compulsive disorder—on his journey to find the happiness of a healthy family. Funny and tender, raw and honest, Bare Bones is pure Bobby Bones—surprising, entertaining, inspiring, and authentic.

Bare Bones by Bobby Bones | Summary & Analysis Preview: In his memoir Bare Bones: I’m Not Lonely If You’re Reading This Book, country music radio personality Bobby Bones, whose birth name is Bobby Estell, looks back on his life so far. Bobby, who was 36 at the time of its 2016 publication, reflects on his successful and storied career, which has spanned three radio stations. He also explains how his difficult childhood has had an ambivalent legacy in his adult life: it has fueled his near-superhuman work ethic and severely stunted his personal relationships. Bobby was raised by his mother and grandmother in Mountain Pine, a tiny, impoverished town in rural Arkansas. Pam Hurt, his mother, was just 16 when he was born. She was always unreliable because of two related problems; she was an alcoholic and she had trouble keeping a job. Her family’s food insecurity led her to use food stamps and steal food from the grocery store… PLEASE NOTE: This is summary and analysis of the book and NOT the original book.

This poetry collection is a confession -- a confession that I am far from healed. More sobering than my previous publications, these poems reveal a young woman trying, desperately, to write a story of recovery. In these pages, I am learning. I fall down (multiple times). I'm still figuring it all out. Moreover, these poems, I hope, reflect a shared sense of humanity. No one is alone -- even in our darkest hours, we are never alone. We all feel sadness. We all feel lightness. We all break and fake it and make it alright. These poems may be thought-provoking. These poems may be whimsical. These poems may cause laughter, confusion, and uncertainty. Above all, I hope you know, these poems are me.

Born with only one hand, Joan Tollifson grows up feeling different, finds identity as a bisexual lesbian and a disability rights activist, but also sinks into drug addiction and alcoholism. She embraces Zen Buddhism and then a very bare-bones spirituality that has no form. Bare-Bones Meditation reveals the inner process of the mind in a new way, and Tollifson's account is beautifully written--intense and from the heart.
