The author describes his audiobook as a simple audiobook from a simple mind: Stephen Colbert's. In plain conversational language, not to mention the occasional grunt and/or whistle, Stephen explains his take on the most pressing concerns of our culture: faith, family...hygiene.
Why now? Stephen fears America has lost its balls and he hopes to re-ballify us...even the ladies. Ladies can have balls: lady-balls too. Stephen likes to call those "Thatchers". Stephen will show how he got his mammoth swinging sack with tales of courage and vital documents from his own life, including the Mother's Day card he made at age six, disputed credit-card bills, and putt-putt score cards - all the major milestones.

I have been a fan of Stephen for several years and love the show but the audio book is just boring and dissapointing. Waste of time and money. I expected more from him.

This was an extremely entertaining listen! If you like this and have not listened to "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart Presents America (The Book): A Citizen's Guide to Democracy Inaction" then you should definitely give it a listen as well.
Colbert narrates his own book, so you get the man and his material. With tongue set firmly in cheek, and with the exception of health care, Colbert walks us through the key issues of the day.
This book was so funny, I may listen to it again, just to make sure I heard all the jokes.
If you read the book whilst listening to the audio version, you get the truth TWICE at the SAME TIME! If there is a braille version, I will buy that and learn braille so that I can see, hear, and feel it at the same time. If only there was a way to taste and smell it as well. If you know of a way, let me know.
I love commedy. I love talk shows. I love Bill Maher and other intelligent pundits. I HATED this book. Listened for 10 minutes and deleted from my player. It's boring. No real insights. Tries to be controversial, but he's not really, or just doesn't have a point.
