I read all the time, or nearly. I always have, I guess, since I was very young ... and now, getting older, more audio than any other medium.
If you like the Daily Show, it's a pretty sure bet you'll like "Earth" too. It's ironic, frequently laugh-out-loud funny, and often on the mark true. You have to like word play and it doesn't hurt to actually know more than a little world history. The narration by the Daily Show cast and other celebrities is perfect. A funny book with a serious subtext ... I enjoyed it very much!
It was one of my favorite.
John Stweart and samantha b.
The chapter about commerce was funny.
This book will have you laughing from start to finish! It's satire at it's finest. Jon Stewart's sardonic wit makes every day observations absolutely hilarious whether it be Caligula's bucket list or the definition of society and the wackiness of the social contract.. modern man will kill you for timber...
Very Funny, a must read. Jon Stewart, Jon Oliver, Sam Bee, etc make a great performance. If you like The Daily Show you will love this audiobook. I would recommend it.
In the middle - one of the better non fiction selections.
I enjoyed all of his performances in this audiobook.
The narration was amusing
Dear Aliens: We really f-ed up...
Funny at times, no realy organization to the book
Basically my same review to America. Always enjoy content from the Jon Stewart crew.
Not really a funny read. There's a few laughs, but this is pretty much like reading an encyclopedia. Truly. It's a list of things on Earth described to aliens who might be watching. Eg "Rivers: moving bodies of water. Largest of which was the Nile." Followed by a gag which usually wasn't that funny. Highly forgettable book.
I really thought I would like this book, as I love the Daily show. All the sound effects and the jumping around of narraters was so awful I couldn't finish.
