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.

    "Nice, but naughty"

    A guru for the younger among us, a potty mouth for those who are more mature. I liked it, snickered and giggled, but how the standards of comedy have changed. Not for young teens.

    "Funny, Original, Jon Stewart"

    A post-humorous look at the human race, as portrayed by Narrator Jon Stewart speaking towards an alien being or race that has stumbled upon earth. A definate for fans of Stewart or Colbert.

    "not bad"

    I gave it three stars because the cost was a big high (for 4 hours) and the audio sounded like a casette tape. Other than that same brilliance you hear on the Daily Show- just not very many laugh out louds, more like warm smiles.

    "Not bad - different - but not ALL that"

    It's the first time I've 'read' this type of book, so I'm not sure if I can really comment (since I'm more into novels and memoirs). It's alright - it makes you laugh at times - and is relatively short and keeps you somewhat entertained ... Having said that, I'm probably not going to recommend it as a MUST read to each and every person ...

    "Good book, not great. But let me explain."

    The first thing you should know is that I gave this book four stars instead of five because it just didn't live up to how good the first Daily Show book [America: The Book] was. In fact, if you haven't listened to that one, do it first. It's funnier.

    THAT BEING SAID,

    This book really is great. The "new" Daily Show cast never phones it in and every personality leaps into your ears. The book is whimsical, angry, funny, politically crazy, and everything else we look forward to from Jon Stewart and his gang. Listen to this one and America: The Book. you won't be too disappointed.

    "This isnt an audio-book it's a badpinball game!"

    I???m kind of embarrassed for Jon Stewart. And I???m equally embarrassed that I???m listening to his audio-book. His last production ???America??? was light, but really funny. This audio-book is just plain bad. Well over half of the sophomoric content is stand-up one-off???s without substantial substance. Perhaps to mask the uneven content, he chose to over-dub the production with every bell and whistle imaginable (including actual annoying bells and whistles). This is not an audio-book it is a pinball game. The fast moving mix of extreme character actors completely override any salient jokes. I often characterize a book (or audio-book) as ???a good bathroom book??? (meaning, you can pick it up in 15 min. increments and still enjoy it). Jon Stewart???s ???Earth??? is a bad bathroom book, that I will now simply flush ...and wash my hands... remember to always wash your hands.

    "Not this time, funny man."

    John Stewart is a national treasure. He helped me make it through the Bush years without giving way to despair. This book is thin stuff. A few laughs, but nothing on the level of his best stuff.
