In the first chapter Adam lets us know that he never learned to read nor write. Not a promising way to start a B-O-O-K.
Some funny moments, but Adam is much funnier on spontaneous radio shows instead of this scripted fare.
The title should probably say stand up and let em dangle. Adam says what we all want to say but stays humble and true to his roots. This audiobook is not a direct read from the book and is all over the map so if you already have the book (like me) get this audiobook as well to experience the full essence of Carolla, the visceral carnal spanking that society needs and Adam delivers. Thanks Ace.
Plain and simple...
there is no honesty... no true insight... no opinions these days. Adam Carolla is the truth.
Check out his podcasts.
from old lovelines to his true self in his podcasts u can't find better...

I think I would have enjoyed this book if I had polished off a fifth of JD before I started listening to it, but I listen to audiobooks as I drive to the job site......so, not such a good plan.

By delivering it as a stand-up routine in an empty room.
Audio form for this book was just a bad idea.
I discovered double-time playback on my device--the only way I could suffer through this book was to get it over in half time. I kept waiting for anything of redeeming value--surely the book is going to turn the corner. It never happens.
Just the dullest hour and a half of my life. Not funny and no point to any of it as far as I could tell.
I have never before written a review for Audible, no matter how good nor how bad I found the audiobook. But I can't let this one go by.
This book is absolutely dull. Well, I speak for the first 1 hour and 12 minutes of it. Because, I persevered that long and tried to give it a chance. But I couldn't waste any more time.
Someone else will have to write the review to let me know if the remaining 5 1/2 hours is what makes it worth the listen.
Loved this book! It's a bonus that Adam did the narration. The writing is very intelligent and articulate. So refreshing to hear someone speak freely without being worried about political correctness. Hope there is a 2nd edition!
This is one of the first books I have purchased from Audible I just could not finish. While I love his sarcasm, I think his stories are a little more interesting to him then they are to anyone else. It has its moments.. just not enough of them. And his voice eventually is just irritating.
Adam Carolla might rant and rave, but it's pretty much what every reasonable person is already thinking- or would be if the crazy left or right wing didn't try to guilt or bully them out of it. The left and the right might be loud, might have the soapbox, and each might be the flip-side of the same two-party coin, but Adam just tells it like it is, and illustrates time and time again that most people just plain don't think things through, or think critically enough to form reasonable or realistic opinions about anything. Adam's the blue collar hammer-swinging version of Jon Stewart, and not afraid to take on majority opinion or skewer the sacred cows. Adam is a great reader - and equally good at digression - so get an entertaining lesson in common sense with Adam Carolla, and download this now!
