Audie Award Nominee, Humor, 2013
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. Worse, the L.A. Four Seasons Hotel doesn't even have a dedicated phone button for the Spa. You have to dial an extension! Where did we lose our way?!
It's high time we restored America to the greatness it never lost!
Luckily, America Again will singlebookedly pull this country back from the brink. Covering subject's ranging from healthcare ("I shudder to think where we'd be without the wide variety of prescription drugs to treat our maladies, such as think-shuddering") to the economy ("Life is giving us lemons, and we're shipping them to the Chinese to make our lemon-flavored leadonade") to food ("Feel free to deep fry this book-it's a rich source of fiber"), Stephen gives America the dose of truth it needs to get back on track.

Stephen's delivery of the material
It's comedy, nothing super memorable
The previous daily show and Colbert books were good reads, but unfortunately the audio books did not live up to that expectation. This one finally was on par with the book. I don't know if I would recommend it though still, pricey for such a short listen
I am a great fan of his TV show and had high hopes for this book. The writing is sophomoric and could well have been written while under the influence is something.
Although there are a few funny parts, the majority was insulting and just plain dumb!
This isn't Steve Colbert like we know him. It is just blabering on about utter bullshit, and it adds nothing to ones life.
The content sucked not the narrator.
I was expecting something a little more substantial, but I didn't read anything to say one way or the other. Was entertaining.

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.
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
