Publisher's Summary

What The Daily Show is to evening news, The Colbert Report is to personality-driven pundit shows. Stephen Colbert brings his sarcastic charm to a half-hour report, tackling the important issues of the day and telling his guests why their opinions are just plain wrong. Stephen stands for "truthiness" and his American right to copyright that word and claim ownership of it.

The author describes his audiobook as a simple audiobook from a simple mind: Stephen Colbert's. In plain conversational language, not to mention the occasional grunt and/or whistle, Stephen explains his take on the most pressing concerns of our culture: faith, family...hygiene.

Why now? Stephen fears America has lost its balls and he hopes to re-ballify us...even the ladies. Ladies can have balls: lady-balls too. Stephen likes to call those "Thatchers". Stephen will show how he got his mammoth swinging sack with tales of courage and vital documents from his own life, including the Mother's Day card he made at age six, disputed credit-card bills, and putt-putt score cards - all the major milestones.

Little Too Much

I like his show, but 4 hours of the book was a little too much.

A Lot Like The Colbert Report

This was a lot of fun to listen to, mostly as it's like listening to an audio version of his show, augmented by an impressive number of guests, including Jon Stewart and Amy Sedaris. It's frequently laugh out loud funny, with bits and lines I rewound to listen to again and again. Great stuff if you're a fan, and a good primer for people interested in Colbert's brand of comedy.

A smile for every mile

I'm biased. I've been a fan of Steven Colbert for a couple of year's now. He is frank, funny and sometimes controversial, but only to those who "don't get it", as Colbert would say. This audiobook is no different. He continues to tell it like (he thinks) it is. I especially enjoyed the chapters on family.

If you like The Colbert Report, then this book will not disappoint.
