Penn Jillette's book and The Nerdist Way by Chris Hardwick.
His side stories.
This is just a waste of my time.
I've listened to every single thing Adam has put out and so I know much about Adam. But it's great to hear stories (especially about Ray) which I've never heard.
Initially I was simply going to write "don't waste a credit on this one" but that may not be enough to dissuade Audible listeners. This was just lewd and not worthy of anyone's time. Adam was fortunate to find Jimmy Kimmel who gave him a career, but this book is about his life before that. If my sons lived their life the way Adam did, I would have been totally embarrassed and denied they were mine. Just filthy stories, seldom funny, never inspiring, usually degrading. Not even sure why a publisher would have considered releasing it. It is that bad. Don't bother wasting a credit on this trash. Please..
Adam's other book "In fifty Years We'll All Be Chicks" is a must read companion to this book. To truly get the gist of what it was like to be Adam Carolla growing up and all the hilarity that entails you need to read both books.
I would sit in my car and listen long past I got to my destination because I couldn't wait to hear what was next in the crazy stories.
Here's hoping that Adam is busily working on his next comedy opus. That way I can have another several hours of smiling like crazy while driving around or sitting in the park.
Adam does it again, he tells great stories, and makes me laugh out loud!!! Great listen!
Insightful, hilarious, R rated. So three words and a letter.
Absolutely. The fact that he reads it himself, with emphasis and timing that wouldn't be found in a printed book, makes his book that much more entertaining.
Umm - Adam Carolla? Other than him, his buddies Chris & Ray. They all reminded me of my college days.
Several bouts of tear inducing laughter. I love listening to his podcasts, and this is like a "best of" show that lasts over eight hours. I have heard many of his stories before, but this collection of recollections was dellightful.
While this is one of my favorite audio books, I never would have been a fan of the pre-Dr. Drew version of Adam Carolla. The wonderful influence of each man's spirit upon the other has tempered their more extreme personality traits, lending sophistication to Adam's surly outlook upon the world and a degree of good natured manly grit to Drew's ultra type A personality.
Tell us about yourself!
This book is like any number of comedic movies geared toward young males. There is little you gain from it as a human, but it is pretty damned hilarious in many parts. I laughed out loud enough that I couldn't listen to it in public - because there is NO explaining that can be done in polite conversation.
One thing that I really enjoyed despite being a bit put off initially was the impromptu editing of the actual text in narrated form. The experience would be different if Carolla wasn't reading his own book and deciding to deviate onto non-written elaboration and I found this pretty entertaining after getting used to it. It reminded me of a conversation with friends over the first beer of the night - its tends to meander where it chooses as you all work through the rest of the case.
Probably not, considering that I only listen/read a book once.
It gives the reader the knowledge as to why Adam Carolla is who he is today.
Yes! Adam delivers as always
I was saddened to find out that Adam choose to exclude certain chapters/stories of the book. Constantly reminding the reader that if they wanted to find out, to buy the book by claiming that he was pushing the 8 hour mark; when there are books that are well over the 20 hour mark!
I've been a fan of his on and off for years but his audio books had me laughing aloud In the stores getting looks from people. I did t feel the. need to go too in depth, he is a comedian and the book is funny. You defiantly get you money out of this one.

This is purely Adam Carolla; funny, bawdy, crass, but completely entertaining. I usually listen while driving, and had recently listened to several deep, serious books. This was a great break from serious. He is a little too crude for me in some places, but not so crude I couldn't enjoy it. Maybe a little more 'guy' humor than I usually appreciate, but I had enough laugh-out-loud moments to forgive the crude ones. I would recommend this book to most men and some women. I gave only 4 stars instead of 5 because of some of the potty humor.
