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.

1st book ever got convinced me audible was awesome

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

Dry, Hilarious, Knowledgeable <br/><br/>Dry humour; facts mixed with satire about about people reacted to certain things; and surprisingly educating. I ended up looking up quite a few things that were mentioned in this book to find out more about it.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Daily Show with Jon Stewart Presents Earth (The Audiobook)?

The Future Alien Questions and the responses to the answers were pretty decent.

What about the narrators’s performance did you like?

There are actually a bunch of narrator's and all of them are awesome

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

This book is not right for a film. It doesn't really have a story, but it meant to serve as a guide to future visiting Aliens for what humans' understanding of the world was, what we accomplished and how we managed to destroy ourselves. <br/>I can't imagine a good movie coming from this book.

Any additional comments?

I've recommended this book to everyone of my friends. At under 4 hours long, its not exhausting and you can listen to it in sections. <br/>This is a book I keep at all times on my device because it is always good to listen to if I ever get bored. <br/>It was my 1st book with audible.com that i chose to get for my trial-run subscription, and it was the one that convinced me that this whole audio book thing could be pretty decent.

Humorous, witty and clever performance by the cast

Humorous, witty and clever performance by the cast of the Daily Show. If you miss watching Jon late at night, this is a poor substitute but will do.
