Publisher's Summary

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 Audioook) 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.
Read by Jon Stewart, the Daily Show correspondents, and featuring a special performance by Sigourney Weaver.

Good book, not great. But let me explain.

The first thing you should know is that I gave this book four stars instead of five because it just didn't live up to how good the first Daily Show book [America: The Book] was. In fact, if you haven't listened to that one, do it first. It's funnier.

THAT BEING SAID,

This book really is great. The "new" Daily Show cast never phones it in and every personality leaps into your ears. The book is whimsical, angry, funny, politically crazy, and everything else we look forward to from Jon Stewart and his gang. Listen to this one and America: The Book. you won't be too disappointed.

Buy the hardcover

Okay, first off, the reason for my low rating is not on the quality of the book (it deserves 4.5 stars), but rather to steer people away from the audible version and to purchase the actual book. The jokes are funny in the audible version, but are MUCH better in the actual book! This book is designed to be viewed not heard.

With that said, I did enjoy listening to the book, although I did read the copy I bought for my wife. I do think the price is rather steep for less than 4 hours of content, but this is John Stewart, and I feel he was worth it.
