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.

Only another Stephen Colbert book can compare. He is one of a kind!
Ha! Well, Stephen Colbert. His style is just plain funny!
Jobs, Medication, Gold and Sh*t Brownies: Important facts about America
Funny, Hilarious, and Sad...but mostly, funny!
Anyone who listens will become a Stephen Colbert Stalker
by being Stephen Colbert
there can never be anything wrong with his performance....he is Stephen Colbert
Why read the book when Stephen will read it at me so well.
His delivery of every bit was spot on.
Too many good bits to pick from.
I wouldn't change a thing.
The road trip got even better.
Steven's delivery is essential to this book! If you love his show, you will like this.
I would definitely recommend this book
Of course I laughed out loud! It's Colbert!
The book seemed a little short, maybe that's because I was enjoying it so much. Stephen can make deep insights into the current political and pop culture scene that make you think and laugh at the same time!
If you are considering either reading the book or listening to it, I recommend listening. The performance is great! If you were thinking about not reading or listening to it at all, then you should change your mind, because you would be missing out!
I have listened to 5 books and this is the lowest rank after Al Gore's book.
He talks about unemployment and benzodiazopines (?) or psychotropic drugs. His reading and jokes are a bit too angry at times for me to enjoy.
When he talks about Vicodim being the wonder drug determined by the open market (high demand for the drug).
No. I listen in parts.
Cobert's first book is a better listen. So much for sequels.
I really enjoyed this because the writers put together a great book, and Colbert does an amazing job narating; it is basically a non-news based episode of his show. This is best produced audiobook I've heard.
I just follow the signs!
Smartest guy out there ! If you are a fan a must. Not a fan ? u r not missing anything.
I don't know.
He is better for a few minutes on TV. After three hours it gets really old and is no longer funny.
If you enjoy watching the Colbert report you'll probably enjoy listening to this audio book. However, if you're expecting something groundbreaking you'll be disappointed.
