    GET IT ON ! can’t wait to listen to the audiobook …

      Adam is that you on the front page of Wikipedia, click on the picture.

    Love Lynch’s t-shirt!

    Typically, Lynch is wearing his Phish shirt. Just yesterday Phish was closing the Bonnaroo music festival in Tennessee and were joined on stage by none other than….

    Kenny Rogers ! (No joke, look it up on YouTube)

    Unfortunately they played “The Gambler,” and not “Ruby” or “Coward of the County”. But maybe that was for the best, because Phish playing “Ruby” would’ve caused Mike’s head to explode and ripped up that silly plaid cap.

    Gottagetiton06-11-2012

    Gotta get this audiobook… I thought I had heard every story Adam had to offer, from his childhood already, after listening to every podcast since day one, but these are new stories..

    Aside from that, I feel the deal has been, enjoy our free podcasts and then when Adam’s books come out, we gotta get em, thats our way of keeping the Pirate Ship afloat..

    Anyway, I wonder if there are Donny and Sandy stories in there..?

    • ross
      ross06-12-2012

      You’re being sarcastic right? I think he’s told every one of those stories on the podcast at some point the last 3 weeks. It’s just a waste of my time

      • An Onny
        An Onny06-27-2012

        Yeah, I stopped listening 20 minutes into this podcast. I can’t imagine paying money to hear the same old stories about his mom and her hippie friends and his carbon monoxide poisoning. I’ll buy the book entitled “Loveline: the Audiobook”. He and Drew can just take a bunch of new calls from today’s stupid teenagers. Now that’d be worth it!

    • Dirty
      Dirty06-13-2012

      I’ve been wondering for a while what happened to Donny. His name doesn’t even come up. Did they have a falling out?

      • Nik Weinstein
        Nik Weinstein06-13-2012

        Yeah….Donny had too big of an ego…well, Carolla has a (I say well deserved!) ego and you can’t have 2 of those sharing a microphone!

  5. ejmagee
    ejmagee06-12-2012

    It’s just a waste of my time…..

  6. SubDude
    SubDude06-12-2012

    Had to shut this one off after about 15 mins. Wow, who knew that complaining incessantly about ones boring upbringing would be bookworthy? Maybe we should all write books! Yawn. And this guy wonders why his mom and dad don’t trip over themselves to get him pictures for his book or listen to his shows or attend his performances after he makes them the butt of every joke that he tells…. Stick with comedy, dude. Lay off the narcissism. Nobody cares about your boring childhood or your bizarre political views. That’s not why we download the podcast.

    • Al Jazeera
      Al Jazeera06-12-2012

      Soooo…. basically your a hater.

    • Dan
      Dan06-12-2012

      Your mom.

    • Badger
      Badger06-12-2012

      Why do all you hippy lefty faggots download the podcast anyway?

      It’s an eternal mystery to me why there’s always 40 comments of “UGH, I ONLY MADE IT 3 NANOSECONDS BEFORE I HEARD A POLITICAL VIEWPOINT RIGHT-CENTRIC FROM STALIN. I THREW MY IPOD TO THE GROUND IN DISGUST”

      • Steve
        Steve06-21-2012

        agreed

      You’re the new number one big boob queen.

  7. Chris

    Ugh! No podcast, what is this? I’m already buying the book Aceman no need to take away the podcast.

    Thanks Ace for the book. Love the audio/freebie chapter. Now if I can only get off work so I can start reading!

  13. The Archduke
    The Archduke06-12-2012

    Adam is still signing those damn book plates!

  14. May Kadoode
    May Kadoode06-12-2012

    I know that only 10,000 fans get to hear Adam and Artie live but will you run the audio portion of the show at a later date for us working schlubs with families who will probably miss the live feed? Artie and Adam have such a good working chemistry I’d hate to miss this one.

    Over,

    • May Kadoode
      May Kadoode06-12-2012

      Adam’s about to be on Howard Stern on the East Coast Repeat, Sauce on Side…

    Congrats on the release! So happy for you and the fam. You deserve all the accolades… I watched the Jimmy Kimmel interview on youtube. LUV it. Keep it coming!

  18. Danny V
    Danny V06-12-2012

    Love the first two chapters, I like hearing about his life and sometimes find it very moving, I hate listening to his rants and his bitching about being rich and paying taxes. But I love hearing about his life

  19. stnuntrnd
    stnuntrnd06-12-2012

    page 17 of NTBM: ” … six years of high school, and a year of college football.”
    Please ask Adam to talk some on the podcast about his college football career,
    how he got recruited, what team he played for and against what teams, memorable ups-and-downs, etc..

    • JC Ball
      JC Ball06-13-2012

      He tried playing at the Junior College level, but quickly realized that he actually sucked outside of a low ranked, low division high school team, or pop warner. He wasn’t very good, so he quit during his first year when things got real. No grit.

  20. CACAHD
    CACAHD06-12-2012

    thinking about when Adam asks his parents why no middle name.

    I have 2 thoughs about that. what if they answered that adam was his middle name and he found out he doesn’t have a 1st name.

    or they answered why no middle name “It’s just a waste of my time!”

  21. The Dude of Life
    The Dude of Life06-12-2012

    “you decide what it contains
    how long it goes, but this remains
    the only rule is it begins
    happy, happy oh my friends”
    ……congrats on the book guys!!!!

    Adam i’m buying your book in support of you and your great show. My friends say I’m cheap. Would a cheap guy spend $3,000 on a new suspension for my new S4. Would a cheap guy buy a new car especially a gas guzzler? I say fuck them. My friends say I am the Canadian version of you. Keep up the great work you fucking funny bastard.

    Before I sign to fuck off how to hell do I go about getting an audi copy of you fucking book.

    harry L06-12-2012

    very curious to see whether donny is involved in the book. before the break up he seemed to be heavily involved in Adam’s stories, so it will be interesting to see.

  27. AZKeith

    His parents were really horrible people.

  30. jim
    jim06-12-2012

    Saw Adam on O’Reilly. Last time he was on, he was fed from another studio, I thought he looked sickly or scared or intimidated. This time in studio he looked relaxed and was funny. Good stuff, Aceman.

  31. Hey Man
    Hey Man06-12-2012

    Im a fan of Adam but the book was not worth what I paid for I think the first book was ok but the this one was crap Im sick of hear talk shit about his Mom and Dad if u feel they have did u so wrong then stop dealing with them asshole

  32. trailerparkdave

  34. Ron
    Ron06-13-2012

    I just bought Not Taco Bell Material on Audible and I have to say Adam did a great job with the audible book. I got 8 hours of Adams nasally drone for about $13 or 1 credit. It was well worth it.

    So if you are an Adam Carolla Fan what are you waiting for, Let’s keep this Pirate Ship a float!

    Get it ON, No choice but to get it ON, Mandate get it ON!

    I ordered my book back 6 mos ago when they were first available to order, and just like clock work it was delivered to my porch on Tuesday. “Keeping the ship afloat”. When is Howard going to podcast? It would be sweet to hear the Howard and Adam show.

  37. Kate Thompson
    Kate Thompson06-13-2012

    I agree. I am buying the book. I listened to this podcast twice and laughed my ass off! Must have the audio book. Thank you Adam for bringing so much laughter in my life.

  38. T's V
    T's V06-13-2012

    These two chapters brought back found memories of being poor and white child during the early 70′s. Good times!

    Yay what a treat! Thanks for adding this to the podcast it made my day. I am so excited to get my book in the mail and I will get the audiobook later. I love all of Adams stories..my favorite one is how he stole the pie at the pie eating contest lol. I hope its at the topof the charts. Loving my new Its a waste of my time ringtone, I want more!

  43. Mike
    Mike06-15-2012

    This audio book sounds so much better than the 50 years book. Adam is more comfortable this time and riffs at will. I hope this becomes a 6 hour comedy album.

  44. MC White
    MC White06-16-2012

    I could have sworn you said the Jesus joke was nixed on the book. I got my copy and the Jesus Joke is there on the book. What gives? I still don’t get it.

  45. Yossarian
    Yossarian06-19-2012

    Sorry, it sounded much more passionate and sincere when these stories were told on the podcast. :\

  46. Raden13
    Raden1306-25-2012

    Just got the audiobook, cause how can I pass up 8 hours of entertainment, but the downside is, I don’t get to see any of the pics from the book. Any chance of viewing them?
