Publisher's Summary

What The Daily Show is to evening news, The Colbert Report is to personality-driven pundit shows. Stephen 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 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.

    "Good humor!"

    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.

    "barrel of laughs"

    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.

    "A feast for the senses?"

    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.

    "Waste of money"

    If this book was suppose to be funny, then it failed. Nothing was offensive, just not funny. Too predictive, nothing original.

    "Boring. Not worth it."

    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.

    "Little Too Much"

    I like his show, but 4 hours of the book was a little too much.
