Where does Not Taco Bell Material rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
While this is one of my favorite audio books, I never would have been a fan of the pre-Dr. Drew version of Adam Carolla. The wonderful influence of each man's spirit upon the other has tempered their more extreme personality traits, lending sophistication to Adam's surly outlook upon the world and a degree of good natured manly grit to Drew's ultra type A personality.

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).
