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.
The book is a continuous attempt to shock the reader with profanity and opinions that just gets old well before the end. Some of the material is funny but the delivery is awful. I reached the conclusion that the writer/narrator is one of those egotistical, narcissistic people that he rants about in the book.
No. The same kind of comedy can be found on free podcasts or satellite radio.
Too much ad lib. Adam Corolla is the narrator so it doesn't come across as an audiobook. It is presented more as a series of topical podcasts with Adam talking directly to the listener. This is not entirely a bad thing but is unusual for an audible title to be narrated in this way. I listen to his podcast on a weekly basis but did not care for his book.
At least 5000 of the 10,000 or so F...... words could be eliminated with no harm to the book or the narration.
Repeated references to what a terrible mother and father he had could be reduced to only those in the first chapter which deals with his childhood and teenage years.
The over-exaggeration of Adam's intellectual deficiencies is un-necessary.
I wasn't sure that i was going to be able to deal with 6 hours straight of Adams corolla rants but this was the funniest audio book I have ever heard. Im going to get the written book so I can read some excerpts from to my friends and family. Not only is it funny but its right on I believe in almost everything he said except Immigation ( white guys don't do any hard labor jobs for me in my area no matter how poor they are) but I digress , this is a must for all guys. all previous negative comments must be from chicks
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 loved this book! While I only know of Adam from The Man Show and Love Lines, this book made me fall in love with him - oh, only if he were a single man. Let's face it, he is funny. In addition, he truly has common sense views on so many subjects; I have cited several of his common sense views on topics, like peanuts in schools (or lack thereof), to my co-workers. I liked finding out that he is very down to earth and not affected by the Hollywood b*&L$^t. I laughed out loud so many times during the listening of this book. Another book soon, please, Adam!
Hi, I'm Corey I'm a student at NYU studying international relations. If you ever wanna talk about books facebook me Gunslingermoore@gmail
Really it was pretty hilarious and very inspiring.
No I saw him on the man show and One extremely underrated movie the Hammer ( which is a really great movie go out and watch it )
Yeah plain ride, Car ride, or a bs boring job this will get you through whatever.
Well worth the price you can go wrong with this one.
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.
With all the sledge that inhabits our society these days, Adam Carolla, through his book as well as his other forms of media, has managed to bring me some hope for our society. In addition to being one of the funniest, most enjoyable reads I have had in a while, it is the truth and validity in his views on life that make this book such a rewarding and relevant accomplishment.
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!
