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.
When I first picked up The Eyes of The Dragon, I found it to be a fun read, laid out in a very storybook format. It still remains one of my favorite books and, thanks to Bronson Pinchot, is made even better. Pinchot's pacing works perfectly with the story and hearing it for the first time just served to remind me why I loved it in the first place.
I was originally just trying to find what Frank Langella was narrating. I happened to see this book and, a lover of historical prose, I was immediately thrilled by the combination of interesting story and understated narration. This book will seduce you, which is great because it truly is a great book.
