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.

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.
I enjoy the Daily Show, however this was just not that funny. It was kind of lame.
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.
Books are magic!
Like in "the Daily Show" Jon manages to tell a lot of informational and revealing stuff about us humans at the same time! :-)
I was expecting much more. It was rather flat.
It was missing the wit of his usual commentaries
I so wanted this to be as funny as the first book (which made me laugh until I cried). But it just... wasn't. Good idea. But, like most sequels, it didn't exceed the original.
Very funny book. It has some great lines. I wish Jon would slow down so I can absorb more of the jokes.
