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.

Jon and the group nailed it. This is an easy listen. Intriguing and lighthearted, and got me laughing.
As always, Jon Stewart is worth a listen
Love the satirical nature of this book :)
An extraterrestrial view of the triumphs and mostly pitfalls of human history.
Humorous, witty and clever performance by the cast of the Daily Show. If you miss watching Jon late at night, this is a poor substitute but will do.
Better than first
Cannot recall, doing review at a significantly later date
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.
Typical Jon Stewart. You get what you expect if you are a fan. Very good production overall.
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.
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. :)
