Review: In Fifty Years We'll All Be Chicks by Adam Carolla

Adam Carolla seems like an okay guy to me.  I watched Life Line when I was younger, and I watched the man show on occasion.  What really pulled me about this book was the title.  How can it not suck a man in?

This book is sub par for comedy books.  Carolla delves a little into his past, and dedicates a paragraph to how he got his start.  Mostly the book hits a rant about small details.  He could have had Dennis Miller ghost write it and it would not surprise me.  But with the current competition in comedians like Sarah Silverman and Tina Fey publishing books, it gets weaker with comparison.  There are a few funny observations, but when the reader gets half way through with the book they may feel like they are in the middle of some routine.

It’s definitely better than Steve Martin’s book Pure Drivel, but not much else.  If you need some brain candy after a slog of literary blocks then this book is definitely a guilty pleasure.
