We already know that Ron Burgundy's apartment smells of rich mahogany and that he has many leather-bound books. Here's another one for the stacks.

The cover has been revealed for "Let Me Off at the Top! My Classy Life & Other Musings," the new book from Burgundy, the San Diego anchorman portrayed by Will Ferrell.

We know he's kind of a big deal. But few know the "real man behind the news desk," reads a press release from publisher Crown Archetype. "In 'Let Me Off at the Top!' he will share never-before-told stories of his childhood and the events that led him to choose a career in the news business. He will offer a rare glimpse behind the camera into the real life of a man many consider to be our greatest living news anchor."

Burgundy "pulls no punches" in the tell-all autobiography, slated to hit retailers on Nov. 19. (Stay classy, Kindle readers, and grab a real hardcover).

"In his own words, he will share personal anecdotes about the women in his life, about his dog, Baxter, and his legendary news team," the press release adds. "Along the way, he’ll also give sage advice on a variety of topics that matter most to him. The long wait is over."

"I wrote a hell of a book!" proclaims an endorsement from the man himself on the book jacket.

The wait will also soon be over for the sequel to "Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy," the 2004 comedy which introduced us to Ferrell's bumbling, womanizing newsman. "Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues" hits theaters in December.
