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.

    "ABSOLUTELY HILARIOUS!"

    This book will have you laughing from start to finish! It's satire at it's finest. Jon Stewart's sardonic wit makes every day observations absolutely hilarious whether it be Caligula's bucket list or the definition of society and the wackiness of the social contract.. modern man will kill you for timber...

    "Good at everything!"
    If you could sum up The Daily Show with Jon Stewart Presents Earth (The Audiobook) in three words, what would they be?

    Basically my same review to America. Always enjoy content from the Jon Stewart crew.

    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.
