Three-time New York Times bestseller 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.

"The undisputed king of the comic crime novel."-Providence Journal
Nobody does Florida weirdness quite like Tim Dorsey! Case in point: When Elves Attack, the New York Times bestselling author's twisted Christmas present to his legion of adoring fans who can't get enough of thrill-killer and Sunshine State historian Serge A. Storms, the most endearing psychopath since Dexter. Dorsey offers the perfect antidote for all those sappy feel-good holiday stories with this zany blockbuster extravaganza in which his wonderfully deranged serial killer Floridaphile delivers his special brand of Christmas cheer. More outrageous than Santa Claus in a Speedo, When Elves Attack serves up a Yuletide feast of the "pure gonzo humor" the New York Times Book Review enthusiastically attributes to this fearlessly funny writer. Think Bad Santa and National Lampoon's Family Vacation, blend in Dorsey's trademark appetite for destruction, and you've got hilarious crime fiction black comedy that anyone would be thrilled to discover stuffed in their Christmas stocking.
New York Times-Bestselling Author: A trip to Sedona, a disappearing heiress, and a reappearing ex-husband add up to trouble for a straitlaced accountant… No one craves order more than bean counter Crystal Goldstein. A partner at a New York accounting firm, doting daughter to her aging father, and loyal girlfriend to the equally workaholic Steven, she has her life completely under control. But when she learns that Steven’s been cheating on her with his ex-wife, that her gruff father has spent years yearning for a brother she never knew she had, and that her job may be in jeopardy, she’s brought up really short. Crystal's best friend—a New Age junkie—convinces her that her aura needs cleansing and her chakras need balancing. With nothing to lose, Crystal takes a long-overdue vacation in mystical, metaphysical Sedona, Arizona. Among the resort’s guests: Amanda Wells Reid, international jet-setter, consummate party-goer, and darling of the society columnists, along with her personal assistant, personal chef, personal trainer, and personal publicist. And their tour driver is none other than the totally irresistible, totally irresponsible husband Crystal tossed out so many years ago. It doesn’t take a psychic to know that the mix of a reappearing ex-husband whose appeal has only ripened and a millionaire heiress who suddenly vanishes is going to add up to some pretty eye-opening—and mind-expanding—doings…. “A modern spin on a good old-fashioned Cinderella story.”—Kirkus Reviews “Jane Heller’s special gift for lampooning the pompous and self-absorbed make for enormously funny reading. Crystal Clear will have you snickering from beginning to end.”—RT Book Reviews
A book published in 1910 by a master of humor P. G. Wodehouse. The action begins with bachelor Jimmy Pitt in New York; having fallen in love on a transatlantic liner, he befriends a small-time burglar and breaks into a police captain's house as a result of a bet. The cast of characters head to England, and from there on it is a typically Wodehousean romantic story, set at the stately Dreever Castle, overflowing with imposters, detectives, crooks, scheming lovers and conniving aunts... A pure comedic joy, as always!
Where do we come from? Who created us? Why are we here? These questions have puzzled us since the dawn of time, but when it became apparent to Jon Stewart and the writers of The Daily Show that the world was about to end, they embarked on a massive mission to write a book that summed up the human race: What we looked like; what we accomplished; our achievements in society, government, religion, science and culture -- all in a lavishly produced audiobook of approximately 200 minutes.After two weeks of hard work and nights in the recording studio, they had their audiobook. EARTH (The Book) is the definitive guide to our species. With their trademark wit, irreverence, and intelligence, Stewart and his team will posthumously answer all of life's most hard-hitting questions, completely unburdened by objectivity, journalistic integrity, or even accuracy.
