I wasn't sure what to expect, but found myself bursting out loud into laughter all the way through this book. The writing is just so smart. There is some foul language, but other than that it was very well done. Narration is excellent.
loved it definitely an eye opener, and plus it made me laugh so much. To love America you have to be willing to work towards a better America how ever is in your power to do so.
Enjoy books about History, Sports, Travel, Geography
Insightful humor. This book is juvenile and not thought provoking. More like an audio version of "slap stick" comedy and too much about Stephen no social commentary
No insightful humor or true social commentary
Stephen C and most of the guests
This book is a crack up. I have always loved Stephen Colbert and this didn't disappoint. Recommend to anybody who likes to laugh or wants to enjoy what they are listening too.
All in all the book is ok. It's not great but not bad. It's a treat to hear Stephen narrating his own book but honestly I think I just liked him better in small doses.
the narrator was excellent as always but the story was not so so....
it is hard to compare an audiobook - his TV show because he was so animated in this facial expressions and you don't quite get that in an audiobook
Not among my favorites.
This is not a book that "moves" you. It entertains.
A great performance, but just not as funny as I was expecting. I guess it was just too much satire for me? I had thought there might be some substance along with the funny.
I listened to it several times!!! You'll find it hard to put down. Once you begin listening to it, plan on finishing it all at once.
You probably already know who Stephen Colbert is and are familiar with the character he played on The Colbert Report, as I was when I bought this book, but you are not prepared for the onslaught of cynicism that is about to lay siege to your earballs. It's nearly unmitigated, and to be honest, I found it tiresome after about half an hour.
Make no mistake, there were some serious laughs to be had, but when you consider the gravity of the subject matter, namely the decline of our society, the nonstop barrage seems in bad taste. I guess the best solution is just not considering the gravity of the subject matter. It appears to have worked for Colbert.
