In his second book, Adam Carolla—author of New York Times bestseller In Fifty Years We'll All Be Chicks and chart-topping podcaster—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—through the flophouse apartments he rented in his twenties, 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 fifteen 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 he lives in (but mostly disagrees with), telling all the stories, no matter who he offends—family, friends or the famous.

  • Funniest book money can buy

    From Ashton Murray
    Really enjoyed this book. I also but the audiobook. Really funny guy who sure as hell isn't stupid. If your looking for a good laugh in a book, Mr Carolla will give you what you want.
  • Thoroughly Enjoyable Read

    From PaulFrench
    If you enjoyed Carolla's first book, In 50 Years, We'll All Be Chicks, then you'll love this one. If you didn't like that book, then this One might turn you around. It's quite literally a rags to riches story, with amusing and hilarious anecdotes, and a stealthy emotional, inspirational punch.
  • Not Taco Bell Material

    From Tommy Gunzzz
    I love reading Carolla. It's like listening to buddy stories around the campfire. He's an everyday average guy who made it. Thank-you!
