    What did you love best about Stephen Colbert?

    His performance at the White House is hilarious.

    I like his "I am America and so can you" because the jokes are great.

    Cobert's performance is always great.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When he says that the President (Bush) governs by the gut and that reality has a known liberal bias.

    Book store nation, in the history of mankind there has never been a greater country than America. You could say we're the number one nation at being the best at greatness. But as perfect as America is in every single way, America is broken! And we can't exchange it because we're 236 years past the 30-day return window. Look around - we don't make anything anymore, we've mortgaged our future to China, and the Apologist-in-Chief goes on world tours just to bow before foreign leaders.

    Brett says: "Funny as usual"

    Where does America Again rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I have listened to 5 books and this is the lowest rank after Al Gore's book.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    He talks about unemployment and benzodiazopines (?) or psychotropic drugs. His reading and jokes are a bit too angry at times for me to enjoy.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When he talks about Vicodim being the wonder drug determined by the open market (high demand for the drug).


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No. I listen in parts.


    Any additional comments?

    Cobert's first book is a better listen. So much for sequels.

    What The Daily Show is to evening news, The Colbert Report is to personality-driven pundit shows. Colbert brings his sarcastic charm to a half-hour report, tackling the important issues of the day and telling his guests why their opinions are just plain wrong. Stephen stands for "truthiness" and his American right to copyright that word and claim ownership of it. The author describes this as a simple audiobook from a simple mind: Stephen Colbert's.

    Ty says: "Funny, but disappointing."
    "If you like Cobert you cannot miss this book!"
