Publisher's Summary

Where do we come from? Who created us? Why are we here? These questions have puzzled us since the dawn of time, but when it became apparent to Jon Stewart and the writers of The Daily Show that the world was about to end, they embarked on a massive mission to write a book that summed up the human race: What we looked like; what we accomplished; our achievements in society, government, religion, science, and culture - all in a lavishly produced audiobook of approximately 200 minutes.

After two weeks of hard work and nights in the recording studio, they had their audiobook. Earth (The Audioook) is the definitive guide to our species. With their trademark wit, irreverence, and intelligence, Stewart and his team will posthumously answer all of life's most hard-hitting questions, completely unburdened by objectivity, journalistic integrity, or even accuracy.

Read by Jon Stewart, the Daily Show correspondents, and featuring a special performance by Sigourney Weaver.

    "Need a good laugh?"

    Stupid, yet educational, all at the same time. Hillarious. Narrated by Jon Stewart as only he can do, along with a cast of others.. Silly, but worth the listen...

    "If you like sarcasm with serious undertones"
    If you could sum up The Daily Show with Jon Stewart Presents Earth (The Audiobook) in three words, what would they be?

    Serious Sarcasm


    What other book might you compare The Daily Show with Jon Stewart Presents Earth (The Audiobook) to and why?

    John Colberts book even though Stewart makes Colbert look silly his quality is far better and less diatribe


    Which character – as performed by the narrators – was your favorite?

    The alien faqs....HILARIOUIS


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

    No but could have done so on a trip....it certainly keeps your attention


    Any additional comments?

    Jon Stewart makes you think without making you feel like its a chore, I do wonder how many times I forget that the issues he addresses are real and serious. Thanks to Jon and his staff he never lets the humor get in the way of the point and vice versa the seriousness of the ideas presented don't get in the way of our humanity and ability to laugh at ourselves....even when we should be embarassed as he*l

    "Cute and adorable."

    It was well worth my time. It's like the Daily Show, so if you don't like the Daily Show, you will probably not like this book. Just a reminder of how things are right now. Like the absurdity.

    "Not bad but expected more"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    It's funny. But it's sort of the same thing over and over again. It stops being fresh after awhile. When you start out as good as Jon Stewart, then getting a bit redundant isn't inherently bad or boring. It's light. It's fun in small doses.

    "If you like the Daily Show, you'll like the book"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Like title of my review said, If you like the Daily Show, you will enjoy the audiobook. If you are not a John Stuart fan, then skip it. My only complaint is that I wish this audio book had been a little longer.


    What does the narrators bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    This is a book that is best when listened to. John Stuart is as funny as ever, no T.V. screen needed for this. Sigourney Weaver reading the chapter titles is just an added bonus!

    "Great Book Read by a Great Cast"

    "America the Book" was fantastic, so I wasn't sure they could follow it up with the same wit and social insight. But they did. Earth is clever throughout, and they get most of the Daily Show cast involved in the audio book. And the writing is fantastic as always. It's amusing and insightful - satire at its best.

    "Earthy as in stinks"

    I'm a fan of the Daily show, and really loved the America audiobook, which I've listened to many times over the years. This book, while outwardly similar, has a completely different, and for me, 'way worser' tone. The book is a letter written to aliens who might stumble upon our planet after the human race becomes extinct. Whether or not you can laugh at it will now depend on how easy it is for you to a.) chuckle at the end of life as we know it and b.) get used to listening to an imagined conversation between Jon Stewart (now dead) and a space alien. I couldn't manage either of those tricks. I found the material dark unto crotchety and. with the exception of Sam Bee, the new correspondants seem stiffly uninspired in their performances.
    Of all the things on Earth, I missed Stephen Colbert most of all.

    Fewer F-words though. Still plenty to offend people who get offended by such things but, definitely fewer than in the last book. I hated it.
