Even when you disagree with Adam Carolla, you have to concede that he has a point. This is no hyper-edited glossy celeb bio. This is an angry ranting middle-aged white dude with a beautiful sense of irony, often a crude sense of humor, and a way of looking at things that makes a reader think and laugh.
Adam's humor is often self-deprecating, but he doesn't mind bringing down anyone and everyone a notch or two. This has occasionally made those who don't understand his humor or irony think that he's racist or bigoted. He makes many cracks about women that used to irritate me until I'd catch myself doing the very thing he'd yelled about...and realized he's right.

If you like the book, I recommend that you also get the audiobook, as Adam eschews the traditional format and starts ranting tangents that are not in the book. It's the audiobook version of a director's cut and is worth every penny. I'm only 2 hours in and already there's a bunch of material not in the ebook!

This book is a perfect example of what happens when someone lose

This book is a perfect example of what happens when someone loses their edge. Put me to sleep. But after The Hammer, I suppose this was to be expected.

    Awful...

    I read this book because of Dennis Prager's interview with Mr. Carolla. It's awful - not because of the cussing and the utter and relentless crassness but because of the total lack of any gratitude.

    I read about 1/3 of this before deciding that life was too short to waste it on trash like this. I would like to leave 0 stars but this system won't let me.

    Awesome and funny book

    I listen to the ACE man's podcast and this is the first book I read by him. He lived a very interesting life that is ridiculously funny. I couldn't stop reading it. It's a great story of how he went from nothing to what he is today. His views on modern day society are funny, true, and thought-provoking. A great read for the adult reader. I gave copies to my friends and told them to read it to see what a real man was.
