Humorous view on life and how we live it. The large selection of narrators and audio editing makes the title very entertaining to listen. If you like the type of humor of The Daily Show, this is certainly a must have.
Stupid, yet educational, all at the same time. Hillarious. Narrated by Jon Stewart as only he can do, along with a cast of others.. Silly, but worth the listen...
Tell us about yourself! I am a 43 year old wanna be intellect. I love people doing things for me and i guess that includes my reading! My interests vary widely so this site is right up my alley....maybe too much so!!!
John Colberts book even though Stewart makes Colbert look silly his quality is far better and less diatribe
The alien faqs....HILARIOUIS
No but could have done so on a trip....it certainly keeps your attention
Jon Stewart makes you think without making you feel like its a chore, I do wonder how many times I forget that the issues he addresses are real and serious. Thanks to Jon and his staff he never lets the humor get in the way of the point and vice versa the seriousness of the ideas presented don't get in the way of our humanity and ability to laugh at ourselves....even when we should be embarassed as he*l
It was well worth my time. It's like the Daily Show, so if you don't like the Daily Show, you will probably not like this book. Just a reminder of how things are right now. Like the absurdity.
Like he is literally talking to you.
Laugh out loud so many times I can't count.
So glad I bought this book. I've listened to it 3 times.
It's funny. But it's sort of the same thing over and over again. It stops being fresh after awhile. When you start out as good as Jon Stewart, then getting a bit redundant isn't inherently bad or boring. It's light. It's fun in small doses.
Like title of my review said, If you like the Daily Show, you will enjoy the audiobook. If you are not a John Stuart fan, then skip it. My only complaint is that I wish this audio book had been a little longer.
This is a book that is best when listened to. John Stuart is as funny as ever, no T.V. screen needed for this. Sigourney Weaver reading the chapter titles is just an added bonus!
"America the Book" was fantastic, so I wasn't sure they could follow it up with the same wit and social insight. But they did. Earth is clever throughout, and they get most of the Daily Show cast involved in the audio book. And the writing is fantastic as always. It's amusing and insightful - satire at its best.
Lover of ideas who feels no guilt at all about her pleasures.
I'm a fan of the Daily show, and really loved the America audiobook, which I've listened to many times over the years. This book, while outwardly similar, has a completely different, and for me, 'way worser' tone. The book is a letter written to aliens who might stumble upon our planet after the human race becomes extinct. Whether or not you can laugh at it will now depend on how easy it is for you to a.) chuckle at the end of life as we know it and b.) get used to listening to an imagined conversation between Jon Stewart (now dead) and a space alien. I couldn't manage either of those tricks. I found the material dark unto crotchety and. with the exception of Sam Bee, the new correspondants seem stiffly uninspired in their performances.
Of all the things on Earth, I missed Stephen Colbert most of all.
Fewer F-words though. Still plenty to offend people who get offended by such things but, definitely fewer than in the last book. I hated it.
Was never much of a reader before due to the fact i had to actually read. Now i'm discovering unexpected adventures with time to do other th
Dry, Hilarious, Knowledgeable
Dry humour; facts mixed with satire about about people reacted to certain things; and surprisingly educating. I ended up looking up quite a few things that were mentioned in this book to find out more about it.
The Future Alien Questions and the responses to the answers were pretty decent.
There are actually a bunch of narrator's and all of them are awesome
This book is not right for a film. It doesn't really have a story, but it meant to serve as a guide to future visiting Aliens for what humans' understanding of the world was, what we accomplished and how we managed to destroy ourselves.
I can't imagine a good movie coming from this book.
I've recommended this book to everyone of my friends. At under 4 hours long, its not exhausting and you can listen to it in sections.
This is a book I keep at all times on my device because it is always good to listen to if I ever get bored.
It was my 1st book with audible.com that i chose to get for my trial-run subscription, and it was the one that convinced me that this whole audio book thing could be pretty decent.
