    Where do we come from? Who created us? Why are we here? These questions have puzzled us since the dawn of time, but when it became apparent to Jon Stewart and the writers of The Daily Show that the world was about to end, they embarked on a massive mission to write a book that summed up the human race: What we looked like; what we accomplished; our achievements in society, government, religion, science, and culture - all in a lavishly produced audiobook.

    Lee says: "Good book, not great. But let me explain."
    "Great listen but..."
    Overall

    This book is Jon Stewart at his best, almost. As a fan of the Daily Show I came to Earth with high expectations and found it a little flat. All the wit that makes the show great is in this book, but Earth made me realize just how necessary visual cues are to Stewart's comedic style. He's also great with banter which is difficult in book form. So three stars for a great comic team working in the wrong medium.
