    Funnyman Adam Carolla is known for two things: hilarious rants about things that drive him crazy and personal stories about everything from his hardscrabble childhood to his slacker friends to the hypocrisy of Hollywood. He tackled rants in his first book, and now he tells his best stories and debuts some never-before-heard tales as well. Adam Carolla started broke and blue collar and has now been on the Hollywood scene for over 15 years. Yet he never lost his underdog demeanor.

    Brett says: "Not bad but uneven and not revealing."

    Adam Corolla's book was amusing, if I'm being generous. It starts off average and tails off from there. The structure of the book using his homes through out his life was different and interesting. The cursing was not excessive in my opinion and suited the stories. Adam Corolla does the opposite of finding the humor in the everyday: he relates surreal and outrageous incidents and his friend's juvenile antics, but doesn't give them life. It's like listening to your boring, misogynistic, racist, dad tell the stories of his life for eight hours. "sure dad, that time you beat up those dorks after football practice must have been sooo fun". Yes some of the stories he tells will amuse you and many of them will shock you. He chuckles through all of them -- more amused with his stories than you will be.
