The biggest flaw is the grammatical errors. There are many. The style is supposed to be the author telling you a story but the grammatical errors take away from the storytelling.
The other flaw is in the ending. Ace man tries to make it inspirational but there were surprisingly few stories in the book that demonstrate why you should be inspired. His story should be inspirational but it doesn't come off that way. I'm a long time listener so I can say that a lot of what he says on air does not inspire you to go out and achieve it makes you say "why is this guy such sick now?"
I bought it on sale for $2. It is well worth that but I don't know if it's worth a $12 list price.
If you're not an Adam Carolla fan, read this book. You'll love it because it will probably make you hate him more, and people like you who don't like Ace have no feelings and revel in any semblance of humanity (in this case, the aforementioned hatred.)
If you love Ace, this will cause your love to spiral out of control and probably cascade you into an Carolla-induced obsession like I went through.
If you have no idea who Adam Carolla is, this book is the best introduction, and congratulations on the wonderful wellspring of complaints and observations you have yet to hear! SNIFF
I can speak for the 20 year old white female demographic (although I'm probably not the best representative of such.) Ladies, buy the book. Good day!
in some fun stories of a guy and his buddies growing up and screwing around in the San Fernando valley in the 70's and 80's this is the book.
Throughout the book Corolla comments on his lame upbringing and how lazy his fold were and and how he's chosen to rise above it. He offers a lot of great advice and observations along the way, it's very inspiring!! I am not a profession book reviewer (obviously) but if you like to laugh, get this book! You won't be sorry!! I used to read it wile at Starbux and just break out laughing right there in the store, people thought I was insane. I've given it as gifts to 5 of my friends and they ALL loved it!!
