Adam welcomes in his Adam Carolla Show co-host Gina Grad for this week's episode of Take A Knee. Adam and Gina dive deep into Gina's history moving to LA and working in retail and various other jobs before getting an opportunity to run an overnight board-op job in local LA radio. As the show progresses they explore the entire trajectory of Gina's career and how she got to where she is now including the mantra she learned from former Take A Knee guest Teresa Strasser, 'Comb Your Hair & Leave The House'.
Kevin and Adam dive deep into their upcoming, The 10 Habits of Spectacularly Unsuccessful People, and why being recovering fuck ups qualify them as the perfect authors for the book. Adam then chats about the last hurdle that he has to overcome, a lack of sleep. Kevin and Adam then chat about the two things that could get you a long ways toward success, shooting for early and early morning alone time, be it jogging or reading the Times. Kevin then covers autobibliotherapy - reading as much as you can to better yourself - and how that has helped him grow during the peak of his success. Kevin also runs down several books that he has read to assist in his quest for self perfection including 'Man's Search For Meaning' by Victor Frankl, Rick Hanson's 'Buddha's Brain', 'The Body Keeps The Score' by Bessel van der Kolk, 'King, Warrior, Magician, Lover' by Robert L. Morre and 'Mating in Captivity' by Esther Perel.
