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 Stewart has captured the very essence of our earthy existence in the most complete, enlightening and enjoyable way. Koodos to you Jon and keep up the great work.
I have long appreciated Jon Stewart, et al's wit and wisdom. This book is a thought-provoking wonderment - Stewart at his best!
Drivel, I thought I might be getting something fun, like Harry Potter. Despite some rather weak attempts at humour, this book seems to want to take itself seriously. Oops.
The Daily Show has been putting up some amazing comedic work in recent years, particularly when highlighting the follies of the zeitgeist. This book is no different, and for that reason, makes the premise a little bit harder to naturally follow. This is taking into consideration that this book is intended for the aliens that will discover this planet and find humanity long since extinct.
Jon Stewart and ensemble were quite entertaining. However, Jon Stewart to narrates the vast majority of the production, something which I appreciate. Perhaps the most significant fault of this audiobook is the length, or the lack thereof. Jon Stewart is just so entertaining that I'm going back to "America" for a listen.
