Publisher's Summary

Three-time New York Times best seller Adam Carolla is back to take on social media, social justice warriors, and a society gone to s**t.

In I’m Your Emotional Support Animal, Adam Carolla examines how our culture went careening off a cliff. We used to have one that created real warriors who fought world wars. Now it spawns social justice warriors who fight Twitter wars. He takes on those who are traumatized by Trump and “emotional support animal” owners who proclaim their victimhood at every airport. He stands up for the collateral damage of the #MeToo movement and for freedom of speech on “safe space” filled college campuses. 

Examining the calculated commercials churned out by Madison Avenue, like the ones about cars “made with love,” Carolla rants on ads designed to either bum us out or make us think the corporation is run by Mr. Rogers. Turning to social media, Adam takes down the “hashtag heroes” who signal their virtue daily from atop Twitter mountain. And in the era of the Roomba, performances by dead celebrity holograms, and meals-on-demand delivery services, he looks down the road at our not-so-bright future as a species.

Frank, funny, and utterly unapologetic, this is not a book for those who need a trigger warning, but is THE book for everyone who wants to hit the snooze bar on the “woke” culture.

Solid conservative values

Similar to his previous audio books, Carolla's reading style is basically that of a long form podcast, he'll every so often start chatting to the recording studio guy from time to time which (while immersion breaking) is refreshing

Great Audiobook

I am a big fan of the Ace Man and enjoy his insights into our current state of affairs. I listened to this audiobook and it is a great platform for Adams work. It is very timely and would recommend to anyone (unless they are easily offended).

It IS frank, funny, and utterly unapologetic!!!!!

The publisher blurb nails it. Yeah....it's 100% crass...sometimes over the top vulgar Adam.....so be prepared!!! I was nodding my head so hard at time I thought my head would pop off my shoulders.....I don't agree with everything Adam has to say.....but then...I'm this way with all the folks I want in my world...I want people who can logically express an opinion....no matter what it is. I don't want to be preached at/lectured....I want to be spoken to and well...that's what Adam does!! I'll be buying hard copies and passing them out...soon....I know a few folks who could use the stress busting "aha moments" that will come to them as they read!

Profanity warning!

Couldn’t listen to this because every other word is profanity. The author must have a very limited vocabulary. And, no, I am neither a progressive nor a liberal.

EPIC YOU MUST GET THIS BOOK

I am listening to this book I'm 10 min in and it's FREAKING AWESOME. Adam Corolla is as great as ever. He doesn't give a 🦆 about hurting feelings or apologizing to the Twitter mob

A little more crass than I was expecting

I’ve never listened to Carolla’s podcast before, so I wasn’t totally sure what to expect here. However, I imagined there’d be a good deal of rallying against cancel culture and complaining about some of the more extreme social changes we’ve seen in the past few decades. I like reading about and listening to such things, so that’s why I picked this one up. The good news is that those talking points are definitely in this book. The bad news is that I thought Carolla’s discussion was a bit over-the-top in terms of its crassness. Don’t get me wrong, I have no problem with swearing, in general. I just think it’s a bit overdone in this book. There are many parts that would’ve been funnier and more clever without so many cuss words. On the subject of the narrative itself, I thought it was sort of a mixed bag as well. On the one hand, I loved some of the dangers Carolla highlighted in terms of societal changes like California’s gross misuse of criminal-related euphemisms and the essential banning of free speech on college campuses. I think these, as well as many similar issues put forth in the book, are really important discussion pieces. On the other hand, some of Carolla’s other arguments either didn’t make much sense to me or felt like they needed more tact in their delivery. For example, he claimed that removing smoking from bars and restaurants was primarily a progressive (and annoying) viewpoint. I disagreed with this stance, and I’m not a progressive — I merely think that anything that actually / legitimately harms someone else is grounds for legislative change, as is the case with smoking indoors. Of course, I didn’t expect to agree with everything Carolla said in this one, but there were many topics like the one I just mentioned where I found myself disagreeing fairly hard with him, despite us probably having a fair amount in common, politically. So, if I had to sum this one up, I think I’d say this: if Carolla is your guy, then you’ll undoubtedly love this one. But if you’re new to his content or aren’t a traditional “tough guy,” then you’ll probably find yourself leaving this one feeling like there are better reads in the genre. It’s definitely got some stuff that will make you laugh, and I certainly respect his courage to speak his mind, but the book lacks any and all refinement, and, as such, isn’t for the faint of heart. -Brian Sachetta Author of “Get Out of Your Head”

Jaded and ignorant

He makes some decent points that I half agree with sometimes, but mostly just spewing propaganda of overly simplified solutions to complex problems. I’m sure some people will love the toxicity, but you can turn on a million mainstream news shows and hear the exact same ideas.

That’s how I feel!

I’m not alone in feeling that everyone is over the top sensitive. This book will make you laugh and cry. This was my first book by Adam Carolla but will be listening to some more.

Nobody does it better

There are gags in this book that mirror the cynic-brilliance of Bill Hicks. ‘How am I going to light my cigarette’. Adam is a natural, his podcasts and audio books have kept me sane all these years. A hearty thanks from the UK.

The Carollavirus needs to infect the population.

Adam Corolla does his best to wake up the world to the woke progressive lunatics.
