  • President Me

  • The America That's in My Head

  • Narrated by: Adam Carolla

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.

Would you consider the audio edition of President Me to be better than the print version?

Adam brings an irreplaceable energy to the story.

What did you like best about this story?

Adam brings up several good points that may be touchy to some audiences. His view points on efficiency and general human conduct are raw and on point. He still manages to present his points in a way that is comedic and entertaining to the listener. He does a fantastic job in engaging the listener in deep thought and consideration of what would be an ideal America.

What about Adam Carolla’s performance did you like?

I love that Adam does not always stick to what is written in his book. He does have a few impromptu bonus tangents when he is recording his book. He just goes along with it. It makes the listener feel like a VIP.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I wanted to listen to the whole book in one sitting. The only thing that prevented me from doing so is the sadness I feel when I am finished with one of his books. I never want them to end. I draw it out as to avoid emotional pain.

  • Daddy, Stop Talking

Adam rips parenthood a new one, telling it straight about what adults must do if they don't want to have to support their kids forever. Using his own crappy childhood as a cautionary tale, and touting the pitfalls of the kind of helicopter parenting so pervasive today, Daddy, Stop Talking is the only parenting book you should ever read.

As soon as I discovered this was narrated by Adam, I was like "LESS TALKY. MORE SELLY." No disappointments. Just like every book prior, brilliant. hilarious. I wish it never ended.

  • Modern Romance

At some point every one of us embarks on a journey to find love. We meet people, date, get into and out of relationships, all with the hope of finding someone with whom we share a deep connection. This seems standard now, but it's wildly different from what people did even just decades ago. Single people today have more romantic options than at any point in human history.

I love listening to Aziz. It's more information than comedy, but still humorous. Worth a listen.
