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.

Funny, funny stuff from one of the few non-liberal yet good comedians. (The only other that comes to mind is Dennis Miller.) (And P.J. O'Rourke)more
The language is really terrible, but the thoughts and facts are great. Adam hits a a lot of issues head on and it's funny too. I don't like cursing, but if you can over look all of that, the meat of the book is great.more
If you are easily offended, do not get this book. I thought it was hysterical, and spot on with Adam's rantings of what's wrong with the world today. If you are a Carolla fan, do yourself a favor and listen to this book. It is so funny, and he veers off-topic into little side rants that are not included in the print version of the book. Loved it, and still chuckling.more
Middle-aged straight white guy name-dropping and bitching about losing his automatic privileges in today's society. The author's patent masculinity issues and cheap shots at gays (preceded by the tell-tale "I'm not a homophobe, but") are pretty pathetic. Mostly petulant, often dumb, rarely funny (I think I smiled twice throughout reading this book), generally obnoxious.more
Very funny book, especially the chapters on religion and doodoo. The author is much more thoughtful that you might assume from his "Man Show" credential.more
I listened to this book, and it was great that way! He said in the beginning he was not going to just read it, and seemed to frequently go off on tangents away from the book. Certainly an interesting audio book experience!more
If you've heard the podcast or Loveline, then most of the stories here will be rehashing things you've already heard. Still, it's extremely entertaining. Carolla's jags translate well to the page.more
Much like his podcast, this book is one hilarious page after another of Adam's rants against our society and the people in it. If you are a Carolla fan, you will love the book. You can hear Adam ranting in your head as you read, and you'll be laughing out loud. If you are easily offended, you will not like the book. Kudos, Adam!more
