Pressestimmen

"Carolla...has keen political instincts and a vision for common sense."
--New York Post

"Laugh-out-loud funny… [Adam Carolla’s] invective-filled screed is often completely politically incorrect, and always completely hilarious."
–AOL's Popeater.com

"If comedy books were big-breasted porn stars, In Fifty Years We'll All Be Chicks would be Christy Canyon."
--Bill Simmons, ESPN columnist and bestselling author of The Book of Basketball

"Adam Carolla is a genius. And no, I'm not kidding."
--Jimmy Kimmel

"Reading Adam Carolla is akin to having a horrible illness. Alone with your thoughts, you struggle with whether you want to even go on living. When you're done, you're a stronger, better person."
--Alec Baldwin

"If you’re a man, read this book.  If you’re a man who wears turtlenecks, wise up.  Nobody thinks that looks good."
--Seth MacFarlane

“I don’t know this guy from Adam, but Carolla’s humor—fearlessly crass, shamelessly honest and irresistibly funny—sucks out like liposuction the  layers of fatty pride to expose the often warped and wounded psyche buried deep within the modern American male.”
--Ken Burns

Kurzbeschreibung

A couple years back, I was at the Phoenix airport bar.  It was empty except for one heavy-set, gray bearded, grizzled guy who looked like he just rode his donkey into town after a long day of panning for silver in them thar hills.  He ordered a Jack Daniels straight up, and that's when I overheard the young guy with the earring behind the bar asking him if he had ID.  At first the old sea captain just laughed.  But the guy with the twinkle in his ear asked again.  At this point it became apparent that he was serious.  Dan Haggerty's dad fired back, "You've got to be kidding me, son."  The bartender replied, "New policy.  Everyone has to show their ID."  Then I watched Burl Ives reluctantly reach into his dungarees and pull out his military identification card from World War II.

It's a sad and eerie harbinger of our times that the Oprah-watching, crystal-rubbing, Whole Foods-shopping moms and their whipped attorney husbands have taken the ability to reason away from the poor schlub who makes the Bloody Marys.  What we used to settle with common sense or a fist, we now settle with hand sanitizer and lawyers.  Adam Carolla has had enough of this insanity and he's here to help us get our collective balls back. 

In Fifty Years We'll All Be Chicks is Adam's comedic gospel of modern America. He rips into the absurdity of the culture that demonized the peanut butter and jelly sandwich, turned the nation's bathrooms into a lawless free-for-all of urine and fecal matter, and put its citizens at the mercy of a bunch of minimum wagers with axes to grind. Peppered between complaints Carolla shares candid anecdotes from his day to day life as well as his past—Sunday football at Jimmy Kimmel's house, his attempts to raise his kids in a society that he mostly disagrees with, his big showbiz break, and much, much more. Brilliantly showcasing Adam's spot-on sense of humor, this book cements his status as a cultural commentator/comedian/complainer extraordinaire. 


ADAM CAROLLA is a radio and television host, comedian, and actor. He is the host of the Adam Carolla Podcast, before which he hosted a weekday morning radio program broadcast from Los Angeles, and syndicated by CBS Radio. Besides these shows, Carolla is well known as the co-host of the radio show Loveline (and its television incarnation on MTV), as the co-creator and co-host of Comedy Central's The Man Show, and as the co-creator and the performer on Comedy Central and MTV's Crank Yankers and is a frequent contributor and contestant on ABC's top-rated program "Dancing with the Stars". Carolla also starred in, co-wrote, and co-produced the award-winning independent film, The Hammer. He currently lives in Los Angeles with his wife and their two children.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Toll 13. April 2013
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Wer Louis C.K. mag ist hier genau richtig. Beissende Texte über das Leben, wie wir es täglich erleben. Viel Amüsantes, einige Lacher und durchgängig unterhaltsam. Wenn es um Mitmenschen und Politik geht, ist der Autor in Hochform. Bei den Kapiteln über Musik und Filme kann man aus Geschmacksgründen nicht streiten und nimmt die Aufreger einfach so hin. Diese Buch macht wirklich Spass...

5.0 von 5 Sternen The best commentary on how 99% of us really think 3. November 2010
Von bobkondz - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
If you already know Adam's body of work I don't need to convince you.

For those looking to judge the book by the cover and are just looking to complain how the 'man show guy' is being a 'sexist pig' - take the time to read the pages and, if you have an open mind, you will find yourself laughing at his takes and actually agreeing with many.

The book is actually rather well written and organized perfectly to keep the reader entertained. Although it is laid out to be more of a bathroom reader, you will likely find yourself not being able to put the book down and eventually wanting more.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Well Done, Ace 4. November 2010
Von Kevin Hench - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
50 years? Oh, that we had that long. Unlike most of these "reviewers" I've actually read this book and can honestly say Carolla writes with a jaunty combo of pith and panache that evokes the best of Hemingway, Mailer and Rickles. Makes a great ironic gift for your boss, if your boss is Gloria Allred.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Honestly, order two copies so you have one to give away while you read the first. 26. November 2011
Von Greg N. - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
I'll admit, I've been an Adam Carolla fan since I heard him on Loveline and saw him on the Man Show. I was baffled when "The Adam Carolla Project" didn't turn into a multi-season show. This guy is a real man, which based off what is spewed across the various types of media in front of me, I'll assume is pretty damn rare in Hollywood these days. While it's easy to see the fruits of his labor have finally paid off for him financially, it's refreshing to see a guy who earned his level of a lifestyle still continue to do what he knows how to do instead of become another pompous a-hole with a checkbook sitting around in white shorts and dock shoes smoking a damn cigar with a sweater draped over his shoulders. Instead of crying about how hard it is to work x days a week and be rich, the man encourages people to keep working despite success and the guy leads by example in my opinion.

He's funny because he's not afraid of being politically incorrect, but I doubt he sat down saying "How many topics can I talk about to sound politically incorrect." He's simply got the balls to publicly say what the few remaining real men in this world say only when they're inside their comfort zone, that is to their buddies. It's refreshing to see someone being honest by saying that he'd rather have been in the parking lot handing out cigars while his kids were being born, why white people with nothing else to worry about in life make up the majority of people who participate in fantasy sports, and why only a self entitled clown says they "rescued" a dog when they merely picked the cutest one out of the caged confines of the shelter.

I titled this review as such to let you know it's worth buying a second copy to give to a buddy because in honesty, the minute you start into it you're going to want to laugh about something you read with a buddy at the bar and few of us are capable of capturing the comedy written on these pages. In the days of pirated everything, I'm sure there are a hundred sites you can steal the book from digitally out there, but I'll simply say you're not doing yourself justice going that route. I bought the paperback and I'm going to break one of Ace's rules by giving it to a friend, but only because I'm ordering the hardcover for my shelf so I can enjoy this rapidly vanishing brand of humor and honesty for years to come.

Before you self righteous book critics take another attempt at slamming the book or even my review of it, remember one thing; Ace hasn't spent his life reading books let alone writing them, he's not going for a Pulitzer prize, and finally I'm not claiming to know much more than the right way to spell literary genius. I'm a damn guy who puts in his 50 hours a week, doesn't piss money away on lottery tickets looking for the big freebie from the imaginary man in the sky, and enjoys listening to Carolla's humor as suck down a beer or two while I wrench on a car or fix up my house during the 2-3 hours of free man time I'm lucky enough to have each week. If you haven't checked out his podcasts, you're missing out on the entertainment value of any chapter of this book free to your ears (and eyes) on a daily basis.

3.0 von 5 Sternen This Book is 3/5ths Awesome! 22. Januar 2011
Von Mr. Twisted - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
As the title of my review suggests, this book is 3/5th awesome.

Why did I word it that way? Allow me to explain.

I didn't give the book three out of five stars because it was just "ok." Rather, I gave it three out of five stars because 3/5th of the book is outstanding and the rest is....filler.

The first half of the book made me laugh out loud regularly and want to stand up while saying "yes! Exactly!" His commentary is spot on and needs to be read by every wimpy, "progressive-minded" person out there. As well as all the chicks who want guys to be more sensitive. Oh and a whole host of politicians.

Where the book fails is in the obvious filler that exists in the second half of the book. It is very clear that he had half of a book's worth of material and the publishers said "hey, you need more stuff. So just look around your house for stuff to complain about."

The second half comes across exactly that way -- like a guy who just walked around his house and/or the grocery store and said "yeah, I don't like that. I'll rant about that for a page or so." Pizza? Pie? Do I really want to read Adam Carolla whine about why cake is inferior to pie but sells more? No.

In short, he does an excellent job of pointing out some of the absurdities in how our lives have become increasingly feminized and how men have, by and large, completely given up. And he does so while making the reader laugh regularly. That is, if the reader isn't a completely wimp-a-fied weenie already.

Had the book been cut in half, I would give it five stars.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A Different Celebrity View 4. November 2010
Von Dretsel24 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
What makes Adam Carolla unique is that most of his views are diametrically opposed to what we hear from most of Hollywood. He doesn't fit into the predictable mold in these "PC" times where most people with a voice are afraid to really express their thoughts. I find it refreshing and also very funny.
