In his second book, Adam Carolla - chart-topping podcaster and author of New York Times best seller In Fifty Years We'll All Be Chicks - reveals all the stories behind how he came to be the angry middle-aged man he is today.
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.
Organized by the myriad "dumps" Carolla called home as a child - through the flophouse apartments he rented in his 20s, up to the homes he personally renovated after achieving success in Hollywood - the anecdotes here follow Adam's journey and the hilarious pitfalls along the way.
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. He's still connected to the working class guy he once was, and delivers a raw and edgy, fish-out-of-water take on the world in which he lives (but with which he mostly disagrees), telling all the stories, no matter who he offends - family, friends or the famous.

Well done, Adam. Great story teller and chronalogical story line.
Any Adam fan -- this is a must read.
Adam regularly goes off on improve side-tracks that make the audio book worth every penny
The Dixie Chicks story, one of the best in the book
The Dixie Chicks story
I loved the humor about everyday things
Its not so much abook asmuch as it is a stand up comedy act
yes, it is a continuation of his previous recordings
Someone who enjoys constant foul language sprinkling a story about Adam's life. I don't know if he is wanting to be thought of as a "poor unfortunate soul" or if he has no concept of the art of story telling without being foul.
Leave out 80%,or even30% of the offensive language. His disclaimer to his children, if they were listening should have told me everything.
I stopped listening after about 30 minutes because of the unnecessary profanity. It added nothing to the story and was totally distracting. I really wanted to hear the story, but just couldn't continue and felt disappointed and irritated that I had wasted my money!
Use your credits for something else.
This book was not funny at all. He was rambling all over the place, writing about uninteresting minutia. Very tedious. I tried, but couldn't finish listening to it. I know he's raunchy and I'm not easily offended, but the foul language was just ridiculous and over done.
It was a funny book, too many jokes about piss and sh*t. Probably the men will find it funnier than women will. But there are some funny parts that made me laugh hard
It's like he's talking to you, instead of reading the book.
Some humor, could have used some humor. Carollal's schtick usedto be fun. Now it's just obnoxious, repetitive and uninteresting.
This really feels like he pumped out another book for the money rather than because he had material. Also, he's not funny anymore.
The book is funny but oh so crude. Heavy on the sailor's language and sex. Got to be books that are just as entertaining but a little more wholesome.
Among the top.
Great stories and that Adam was the reader.
The story when Adam is talking to Ray's girlfriend in the bathroom.
I wish it was longer.
