Imagine a world where New York Times best-selling author, comedian, actor, television, and podcast host Adam Carolla is the President of the United States. Can’t do it? You don’t have to! Adam has done it for you!
Podcast king Adam Carolla first shared his unique, but always funny world view in his New York Times best seller, In Fifty Years We’ll All Be Chicks - but he’s not done.
In President Me, Carolla shares his vision for a different, better America free from big issues like big government down to small problems like hotel alarm clock placement. Running on an anti-narcissism platform, President Carolla calls for a return to the values of an earlier time when stew and casserole were on every dinner table and there were no “service dogs” on airplanes. President Me hits right at the heart of what makes our country really annoying, and offers a plan to make all of our lives, but mostly Adam’s, much better.

I want to feel good when I complete a story & am a little harsh on depressing ones. There are a few sad ones that I love but not many.
I know Carolla is a comedian and I know he is joking about some of the topics but he hits the nail directly on the head.
This book will not sit well with liberals and people who take themselves too seriously. He comes off as a racist and insensitive. Oh well! It is very funny and takes topics on directly in your face.
I am able to look past the fact that he is saying the things that some don't want to say and that he does point out things most want to brush under the rug and see the bigger point. He has made a very funny book that addresses real issues.
I will definitely be looking into more from Carolla.

Adam's performance of the title made it top notch. He's a comedian, so you would expect his timing/delivery to be great, and it was.
There was a lot of politically incorrect truth here mixed with a fed-up attitude. There were some stories that ran on too long and times when I said, "What a douchebag", but overall, really funny. He's like the Libertarian version of John Stewart.
Funny, truthful and not afraid to ruffle the panties of some liberals and Democrats.
When he got to the UN part it was laugh out loud funny. That alone was probably worth the purchase.
Avid audiobook addict!
The only problem for me was that, as an avid Adam Carolla daily podcast listener, I'd heard 99.5% of the stories in this book several times. Though there was very little new, Adam's delivery is always entertaining.
I would recommend this to certain friends who are open minded about political satire and parody.
Future U.S. President Adam Carolla. He genuinely has some really excellent plans and ideas for a better future United States of America.
It was like he was talking directly to me while sitting at a small hotel bar over a few cheap beers.
I could listen to it in one sitting if I was on a 6-1/2 hour car trip or on a long flight.
Adam Carolla's books are so much better on Audiobook then reading an actual paper book. It was like listening to his podcast or stand-up comedy. I am a regular listener to his podcast.
I won't be listening again. This isn't new ground for Carolla listeners. All good stuff, but stale material collected and recorded.
I am a fan of the Ace Man, I have all of his books. But in this one he seems to have lost his mojo. His political positions are fun to listen to on the air, but they did not hold up in book form.
Good effort, some great jokes and observations but this one will not earn Adan any new fans.
Yeah, Adam occasionally breaks from script and freelances a little. Which I enjoy.
The UN address and the State of the Union speeches.
His actual voice.
ACE is a good storyteller and this holds up well to his previous books
He's the author, that's why
No, because its stand-up comedy on paper.... but I'd recommend it to others.
Any good comedian's humor book.
No one can deliver a comedian's words like the comedian themself. Carolla read by anyone else would be bad.
His logical politics , they match up so easily with my own ... and they are both humorous and revealing in contrast to real politicians.
If you enjoyed either of his first two books, or his podcast, its a must read.
