The Daily Show with Jon Stewart Presents Earth (The Audiobook): A Visitor's Guide to the Human Race

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.

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.

    "Great book! I laughed and I learned!"

    Like in "the Daily Show" Jon manages to tell a lot of informational and revealing stuff about us humans at the same time! :-)

    "Not as good as Democracy Inaction :-("
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    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 but delivered too fast"
    What did you love best about The Daily Show with Jon Stewart Presents Earth (The Audiobook)?

    Very funny book. It has some great lines. I wish Jon would slow down so I can absorb more of the jokes.

    "Excellent but dysfunctional"
    Where does The Daily Show with Jon Stewart Presents Earth (The Audiobook) rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Comedy at its best. Sharp and insightful from the same people who write and perform on the Daily Show. Sometimes veers off wildly but the punches keep on coming. As a satire about the world we live in today it is never dull but sometimes preaches to the choir. Great voice acting from Stewart & co. Standout performances from Jason Jones and John Oliver as always.

    Story
    "Comical - have a few laughs"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    It was entertaining, fiction is not my cup of tea most days..


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    The World until Yesterday: What can we learn from traditional societies?


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

    They were what made it funny. None individual stood out but as a cast they were a laugh.


    Could you see The Daily Show with Jon Stewart Presents Earth (The Audiobook) being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    A movie no. A TV series? Only if it were more like a Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy tv show.

    "Stupid"
    What disappointed you about The Daily Show with Jon Stewart Presents Earth (The Audiobook)?

    Stupid. I am a regular watcher of the daily show, and I generally like it. The book was dumb though. It was dumb statements about the world I already knew, boringly simplistic. Really? Aliens are taking over our planet after its destruction, so here a bit of background on it....


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    There were a few jokes here and there. Most of it was heard it before, ha we're obnoxious human type stuff

    "Jon is so much better than this effort!"

    The story was not funny. Jon Stewart's humor is so much better than this effort, every night!


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Jon narrated it but the story wasn't funny or insightful.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?
