Men are apparently all wimps
3 out of 5 stars
So, this is an interesting one… It’s hard to explain it. Some say it’s a typed up comedy routine, but in reality, comedy is funny 80-90% of the time (unless you’re a story teller like Mike Birbiglia). This book is basically a long-winded rant.
Adam Carolla is funny, and does make a lot of good points (I’ve highlighted a few funny parts in my kindle) but overall this book isn’t one that I would recommend to a friend. But in the same aspect, I don’t regret reading it. Carolla is a pretty good writer for being a self-proclaimed illiterate.
Pick this up if you’re angry at the world, if you enjoy a good rant, or if you just want a long-winded explanation of why all men are becoming wimps or how in fifty years we’ll all be chicks…
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… And Other Complaints from an Angry Middle-Aged White Guy 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.
