An autobiography of Adam's life told in stages, each stage defined by a house he lived in. This book was funny, and at times even smart, but the extent and quantity of the gross-out gags had an overpoweringly negative effect.
Carolla narrated this book himself which was fine, and it was mostly really good and original in its approach. He didn't read the book but rather told the stories off-the-cuff in a stand-up comedy style. What I found somewhat annoying here was that he would reference an image in the book and then tell everyone to go buy the print book if they wanted to see it. Also he edited the stories from the book and even left out an entire chapter.
Overall, I wish that I could have learned more about the Carolla from this book. Why are his friendships so enduring? What has his journey from shoe-box apartments to million dollar mansions taught him? Something more than just a bunch stories about guys peeing on one another (or worse - yes, worse).

What did you love best about Not Taco Bell Material?
Adam is a great story teller and this book gave you a background of his life through the homes he lived in
Any additional comments?
Most of this material was the same as the last book so I was let down by that he talked about his football in both books. other than that it was a good book especially his crazy friend Ray I can't believe the mess he did back then. I'm also glad to know that he started from the bottom and worked his way up...
