´´A couple years back, I was at the Phoenix airport bar. It was empty except for one heavy-set, gray bearded, grizzled guy who looked like he just rode his donkey into town after a long day of panning for silver in them thar hills. He ordered a Jack Daniels straight up, and that´s when I overheard the young guy with the earring behind the bar asking him if he had ID. At first the old sea captain just laughed. But the guy with the twinkle in his ear asked again. At this point it became apparent that he was serious. Dan Haggerty´s dad fired back, ´You´ve got to be kidding me, son.´ The bartender replied, ´New policy. Everyone has to show their ID.´ Then I watched Burl Ives reluctantly reach into his dungarees and pull out his military identification card from World War II.´´ It´s a sad and eerie harbinger of our times that the Oprah-watching, crystal-rubbing, Whole Foods-shopping moms and their whipped attorney husbands have taken the ability to reason away from the poor schlub who makes the Bloody Marys. What we used to settle with common sense or a fist, we now settle with hand sanitizer and lawyers. Adam Carolla has had enough of this insanity and he´s here to help us get our collective balls back. In Fifty Years We´ll All Be Chicks is Adam´s comedic gospel of modern America. He rips into the absurdity of the culture that demonized the peanut butter and jelly sandwich, turned the nation´s bathrooms into a lawless free-for-all of urine and fecal matter, and put its citizens at the mercy of a bunch of minimum wagers with axes to grind. Peppered between complaints, Carolla shares candid anecdotes from his day to day life as well as his past Sunday football at Jimmy Kimmel´s house, his attempts to raise his kids in a society that he mostly disagrees with, his big showbiz break, and much, much more. Brilliantly showcasing Adam´s spot-on sense of humor, this book cements his status as a cultural commentator/comedian/complainer extraordinaire. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Adam Carolla.

Eat. Drink. Detox. Breathe. Neutralize. Good health is that simple. In this groundbreaking health-and-lifestyle guide, nutritionist and superfoods expert Darin Olien provides the keys to understanding and utilizing five life forces - quality nutrition, hydration, detoxification, oxygenation, and alkalization - the factors that determine whether we will be healthy, fit, and free of illness. Olien has traveled the world, exploring the health properties of foods that have sustained indigenous cultures for centuries. Putting his research into practice, he tells how to maintain healthy weight, prevent even the most serious of diseases, and feel great - all without restrictive or gimmicky diet plans that never work in the long term. All too often we take note of our health only when something goes wrong. Daily aches and pains are deemed normal - a headache here and there, a sore back, occasional heartburn. But when a diagnosis comes, we are taken by surprise. However, these little complaints, Olien argues, shouldn´t be taken lightly - they are signals of underlying problems, and when we ignore them, we invite disease. With a comprehensive, holistic, and unique approach to wellness, Olien teaches us how to harness the superpowers of food, water, oxygen, and pH balance. In doing so he smashes common myths about nutrition. Included in the audiobook are an indispensable ´´how to eat´´ user´s guide with a shopping list, a balanced diet plan, and advice on what to throw away and on supplementing effectively, to get us started on the way to the best health of our lives.
