Publisher's Summary

What The Daily Show is to evening news, The Colbert Report is to personality-driven pundit shows. Stephen Colbert brings his sarcastic charm to a half-hour report, tackling the important issues of the day and telling his guests why their opinions are just plain wrong. Stephen stands for "truthiness" and his American right to copyright that word and claim ownership of it. The author describes his audiobook as a simple audiobook from a simple mind: Stephen Colbert's. In plain conversational language, not to mention the occasional grunt and/or whistle, Stephen explains his take on the most pressing concerns of our culture: faith, family...hygiene. Why now? Stephen fears America has lost its balls and he hopes to re-ballify us...even the ladies. Ladies can have balls: lady-balls too. Stephen likes to call those "Thatchers". Stephen will show how he got his mammoth swinging sack with tales of courage and vital documents from his own life, including the Mother's Day card he made at age six, disputed credit-card bills, and putt-putt score cards - all the major milestones.

sometimes funny

Unlike his show, this is only sometimes funny, and is mostly tedious and boring.

The Great American Book

As soon as I saw this title for sale I bought it immediately and listened to it straight until the end. I was not disappointed by this book. It is one of the funniest books out there. If you enjoyed "America (The Book)" you will love this. It is brilliantly read by Stephen Colbert along with many guest voices such as Jon Stewart and Amy Sedaris. My only problem was that it wasn't long enough. I am definitely going to buy the book when it comes out as well. Stephen is an American hero!
