Artist in Northern Kentucky. Loves listening to books. My likes are history, mystery and some , and mostly writers of the twentieth century
Doesn't offer anything to think about. His writers must have been on strike when he put this out. Love the show.
I think Colbert might benefit from the play he gets off his audience and guests. He just doesn't come across as funny in a straight-up audio book. I stopped listening / reading about halfway through, I just found myself losing interest and paying attention to other things instead of the book.
I adore him on the Report, and try never to miss it, but this sounded to me like "out-takes." The religion descriptions are pretty funny, though, and I'm sure die-hard fans will love it.
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!
This book rode high on the hog for a majority of it. I truly enjoyed it. There were a couple moments that didn't resonate with me (the Steven speaks for me sports fan spots) but other than that, it was really great satire that you'd expect from Mr. Colbert. Loved it.
This book is typical Colbert style laugh out loud funny. I listened to it on the train and I am sure people around me thought I was crazy for just laughing to my self.
If you don't like silly, if you offend easily or if you are one of those people who just can't live in the Colbert Nation, then don't buy this book, otherwise, buy this book. This is a download you will keep on your device forever because when you need some cheering up, here it is nearly as new as the first time you heard it. One warning though, don't listen to this with your mother. If she laughs at it, you will lose respect for her.
