Everywhere he goes, fans tell broadcaster, filmmaker, self-made millionaire and libertarian-moralist Adam Carolla that he should run for president.

Now Carolla’s done the next best (and much smarter) thing: His new book, President Me: The America That’s In My Head, serves up Carolla’s contrarian, politically incorrect prescriptions for fixing our broken society.

Like his previous bestsellers (and his hugely successful podcast), President Me is pure, unfiltered Carolla. He somehow combines the candid common sense of an old-fashioned Everyman with a freak savant’s audacious ingenuity.

True, Carolla’s raw, frat-boy prose will turn some readers off. That’s a shame, because there are a lot of truly original (and non-partisan) ideas in President Me, mixed in with the crude jokes and curse words.

(By the way: If you’re a longtime “Carolla-tard” and figure you can skip this book because you’ve heard all the material already, you’re wrong. I’m a daily listener and there’s a lot of stuff in here that Carolla has kept “chambered”  — as he’d phrase it – especially for President Me.)

This is a bad book.

Wow, an ignorant comment from an anonymous nobody really carries some weight.

I worked in book publishing for years. There are no "agreements" between publishers and reviewers.

Your tinfoil hat is on too tight.

Careful, Kathy. You're starting to get as thin-skinned as Swindle.


It's not pretty.

Trolls. What would the interwebs be without them? Maybe it's just that their tinfoil hat has a jaunty tilt to it and, therefore, isn't blocking the signals.
