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

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.

    Story
    "Like reading an encyclopedia with a few jokes."

    Not really a funny read. There's a few laughs, but this is pretty much like reading an encyclopedia. Truly. It's a list of things on Earth described to aliens who might be watching. Eg "Rivers: moving bodies of water. Largest of which was the Nile." Followed by a gag which usually wasn't that funny. Highly forgettable book.

    "the performance was distracting"

    I really thought I would like this book, as I love the Daily show. All the sound effects and the jumping around of narraters was so awful I couldn't finish.

    Story
    "America The Book is a tough act to follow"

    Not as good as America the Book. Not great as an Audiobook. Hard cover version is much better.
    America the book was more of a single story with some related stories around it. This is more of a collection of stories bound together with one story.
    I liked that it made some serious points on few occasions.
    Not for children at all. Way too many sexual references.
    The stuff about religion is just not funny.
    Still think The Daily Show is great.

    "Not meant to be an audio book."

    Sorry Jon! I love ya and the whole Daily Show staff but this book is WAY too difficult to make into an audio book. The comedy comes out disjointed and overall is just difficult to listen to for too long. I am sure the coffee table edition is great. I loved AMERICA.

    "Good, but..."

    This is Jon, but he's missing something. His punchlines ran flat and they felt tiresome from early on. I bet Jon would like to redo this whole audiobook.

    "get the first chapter"

    and enjoy it.
    afterwards, it gets slower and tend to repeat itself.
    I listened to the first chapter maybe 4 times: definitely tops the rest.

    Overall, a fun experience.

    "Few chuckles and overall a pleasant read"

    The book is not that great as the show, so the people who love the show might be a little disappointed. I gave it 4 stars because certain chapters of the book were really funny.The jokes did get repetitive but listening to the entire cast of The Daily Show was a treat.

    "Jon Stewart Rocks"

    Jon, Samantha, Wyatt, Jason and John certainly make this reading of The Daily Show book very enjoyable. I especially appreciated Segorney Weaver's interjection at the Title/subtitle points.

    "Worth the dowload"

    This was the first audio book that I listened to that was specifically made for the audio format. It was very funny. Some parts made me laugh out loud even. Overall I would say that it was just good, not great. But totally worth the download.
