  • Description

    If you turn on the evening news or listen to NPR you’ll be bombarded with a non-stop parade of commentators pontificating on the ever expanding gap between the rich and the poor.  But is the chasm really that wide?  In Rich Man Poor Man, comedian and bestselling author Adam Carolla exposes the phenomena that are embraced by the really rich and the really poor--but never the middle class--like having an outdoor shower, wearing your pajamas all day, or always having your dog with you. Combining Adam's inimitable comedic voice and four-color illustrations by his friend Michael Narren, Rich Man Poor Man is a hilariously accurate look at what the people born with silver spoons in their mouths have in common with the people whose only utensils are plastic sporks stolen from a Shakey's.

      I'm a Carolla fan for sure and love his regular books but this one is just kind of dumb. There isn't any actual humor that rises above banal. Super short. Illustrations look like MAD magazine rejects. Sorry Adam.
    • Great quick read, little gas for the pirate ship

      Great book! Illustrations are beautiful. The author has a really good sense of humor that made me laugh a bit. I really hope he continues these kind of comparison books because in the end you feel happy that you read this to your kids instead of the usually fairy tale stories!

      This book was not humorous or enlightening. Poorly written and highlights the obvious without author's humor or thoughts on the two extremes or addressing division between the two classes. You'll get a load of Carolla crap if you purchase. Save your $6 and 15 mins of reading time.
    • Good but short
