Review: In Fifty Years We'll All Be Chicks: . . . And Other Complaints from an Angry Middle-Aged White Guy
In Fifty Years We'll All Be Chicks: . . . And Other Complaints from an Angry Middle-Aged White Guy by Adam Carolla
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
This is Adam's first book, which was followed by NOT TACO BELL MATERIAL.
I preferred NOT TACO BELL MATERIAL.
CHICKS is similar in tone and rant, but with a more shotgun-patterned-style of subject matter. He touches on everything from driving to animals. TACO BELL focused a bit more on how Adam grew up and extricated himself from the surety of a life of relative poverty.
I particularly enjoyed the inclusion of how he met Jimmy Kimmel, as well as the antics they've gotten up to in the ensuing years.
Fans of Carolla will like his books, as it's very much a written format of his rants popularized on his TV, radio, and podcast outlets.
I'm looking forward to his next book, PRESIDENT ME.
He's also becoming an accomplished race car driver. Maybe next year he'll be at Le Mans with his tool-borrowing racing buddy Patrick Dempsey aka Dr. Dreamy whom I recall from "Loverboy" and "Can't Buy Me Love." Amazing how things work out.
