Well, if you ask me - I found comedian, Adam Carolla's book of so-called "humor" to be so funny that I forgot to laugh.

In this book, Carolla had an insult or complaint for just about every trivial subject imaginable. And, with that, I found after just a short while all of Carolla's cry-baby whining and venomous utterances quickly lost their intended bite.

So, in the long run, reading what Carolla had to bark and bitch about became nothing but a redundant and repetitive bore. It sure did.

I also found Carolla had an annoying habit of punctuating every single point he made with either the f-word, or the s-word. To me, this was a typical approach of someone who was basically talking nothing but pure trash.

All-in-all - Carolla's book stank, big-time. I can't imagine how anyone (in their right mind) could possibly applaud this utter mess of non-stop, verbal diarrhea.

To show you just how full of flatulence and way off the mark the two-faced Adam Carolla is with this here book of his - I want to first point out that he barely gets around to satisfactorily addressing the first half of this book's overlong title, which is "In 50 Years We'll All Be Chicks"... (And Other Complaints From An Angry Middle-Aged White Guy).

Yep. That's right. Out of 250 pages of chronic verbal diarrhea, Carolla only invests in a surprisingly short bitch-session on his anti-women campaign in one flimsy, little chapter. But, believe me, in that brief span of words he certainly makes it crystal clear just how much he detests women and puts the blame on them with a passion.

About all that this book amounted to was just the tiresome whining of a big, self-loving, middle-aged suck whose cry-baby bark was definitely about 100x worse than his sniveling bite.... If I were to actually edit out all of Carolla's tedious anecdotes and other such filler nonsense from his book, I swear I'd be left with a book that wouldn't amount to being more than twenty pages at the most.

Throughout his book Carolla had a really terrible habit of pointing out that if the reader didn't find what he's written as being the absolute, most pricelessly funny stuff ever, then they were, in his exalted opinion, the biggest arseholes (next to women) in the world.

Anyways - With that all said - Even though Carolla did strike me as the sort of insincere, hypocritical creep who thinks that his farts don't stink, he did make some valid points about racism and multiculturalism. And, because of that I was prompted to at least give his precious, little book a 1-star rating.

Adam Carolla was hilarious on Loveline, and from a purely-comedic standpoint I love his style (his delivery, his ability to tie subjects together and retrieve previous thoughts instantaneously).

However, in terms of society, particularly global/macro socioeconomics, political history, imperialism, propaganda, basically anything serious, Carolla is illiterate. So, when he does stumble on a serious topic, it can be cringe-worthy.

Probably the most offensive book I’ve ever recommended. And it’s not even half good. From the man who brought you The Man Show, these testosterone-soaked, sometimes neanderthal-ish ramblings are guaranteed to make your liberal friends cringe. Me, I prefer to judge Adam in the context of his entire body of work, which includes the wonderful film The Hammer, years of counseling Junior College-bound teens on the late night radio staple Loveline, and now this—at times—very funny book. I laughed, and learned a thing or two like how to best utilize a pet Pegasus.

Carolla’s style came off a little more brash than what I would normally enjoy, but I have to admit that he’s spot-on when it comes to a lot of stuff. My particular favorite was the chapter “Women, Hear Me Roar,” in which he has a brilliant idea for tampons.

Not a bad read...if you listen to Adam's podcast you've heard most of these rants before. Definitely some very funny bits, though!
