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.

    Better than first


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Daily Show with Jon Stewart Presents Earth (The Audiobook)?

    FAQs


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

    Cannot recall, doing review at a significantly later date


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

    Not really


    Any additional comments?

    This was much better than the first book by Jon Stewart. I don't know what happened with the first book. Jon's delivery was much better, lighter topic, would recommend to friends.

    "A review of Earth for future species."

    Sigourney Weaver, Jon Stewart and company present an encyclopedia style review of the earth. somewhat longer than the entry in the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, this entry would be proud from the Encyclopedia Galactica. An enjoyable twisted little review of Earth's history.

    "Silly and Enjoyable"

    All the performers and performances are what you'd expect: hilarious, snide, great timing, etc. The point? Not so sure there is one but it sure as hell was entertaining. . . Which come to think of it, is I guess the point. :)

    "Hilarious and Poignant"

    Stewart and company have crafted a loving, mocking, terrifying, and honest look at civilization, society, and the human experience. The sections on flora and fauna are similarly clever and the execution, especially the constant interjection of recognizable Daily Show alumni, is peerless. Among the best comedy audiobooks you'll have the pleasure to enjoy.

    I'm a mother, a teacher and terribly dyslexic. I spend a lot of my time listening to podcast, or audiobooks whilst doing other boring tasks.

    "Disappointing"

    I enjoy the Daily Show, however this was just not that funny. It was kind of lame.

    "Ok book, but boring narration"

    I have a copy of the book and very much like Jon Stewart on The Daily Show, so I thought it would interesting to listen to the audiobook as well, but the narration is a little too deadpan for me. On the show, Stewart usually has tons of energy, yelling and screaming sometimes, but on the book, it was as if I were reading a boring school textbook, but in aural form. Very disappointing; I'm going to return it.
