An autobiography by Adam Carolla. He discusses his life in southern California, starting with his boyhood with his depressed, hippy mother and laid-back dad, the shitty houses they lived in (with pictures), his shitty apartments, his construction work, stripper girlfriend, and his getting together finally with Jimmy Kimmel to launch his celebrity career.

I think I am going to add a shelf to my Goodreads account called "garbage." That's not to say that there's nothing redeeming in this book, I mean, it has its funny moments, plenty of them. Furthermore, I am a dumpster diver hobbyist, so I enjoy looking through trash sometimes. All I am saying is, this book is garbage. It's raunchy and crass and, well, garbage. ( )

If you listen to his podcast, a lot of this will sound familiar. If not, you'll probably get a good kick out of it. ( )

Not as funny has his first book, but it has its moments and some of them are extremely funny. Not for people with a weak stomach. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0307888878, Hardcover)

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.
