There were some great parts of this book. The part on peanuts and food retardation had me in tears. However, there were some parts that were not all that incredible. More than anything the book seemed to not be coherent. It was a funny read, but didn't bring much value. Lately, I like to get value out of my reading or it has to be incredible fiction. This was somewhere in limbo. This is typical Carolla though, so if you like him you will like the book.
