It's a sad and eerie harbinger of our times that the Oprah-watching, crystal-rubbing, Whole Foods-shopping moms and their whipped attorney husbands have taken the ability to reason away from the poor schlub who makes the Bloody Marys. What we used to settle with common sense or a fist, we now settle with hand sanitizer and lawyers. 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 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.

This book is awesome. The fact the "Ace" (Adam Carolla) reads it himself makes it even better. I laughed so many times while listening to this book that I had to stop it just to catch my breath on a few ocassions. Kudos to Adam for writing this and pointing out the little things in life that are both irritating and funny. If you like witty and ocassionally offensive sarcasm, you would be a fool not to buy this book. Thanks for reading this Adam. No other reader could have made it as good as you did.

Don't like my review...well too !#%$!#% bad.
What would have made In Fifty Years We'll All Be Chicks... better?
My title summaries what I think of this book and his rant. Tried to listen but shut the book down half way and deleted it. Was NOT funny except for small bits scattered. Too much needless !#$%!#$^ swearing. Perhaps if I grew up in the south and was a "good ole boy" I would have enjoyed it. OH WAIT, I did grow up in Missoura and Alabama.... still did not like the book. There are a few funny parts and I completely agree that America has turned soft.
Has In Fifty Years We'll All Be Chicks... turned you off from other books in this genre?
yes. will avoid the rants
Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Adam Carolla?
no one. he is fine and has his own character and style. I do respect that.
You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?
few funny parts and I completely agree that America has turned soft.
