GIVEAWAY & REVIEW: Earth by Jon Stewart & The Daily Show (audio book)


Description

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 Book) 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.

About the Author

Jon Stewart was born in New York and lives with his wife and kids in New York City.

MY THOUGHTS:
LOVED IT

Jon Stewart is one of my favorite people.  I consistently watch The Daily Show and love the humor.  This is one time I can say the audio book is better than the paper version.  You feel like you are listening to the cast of the Daily Show speak to you personally.  I did cheat a bit and looked at the hard cover version while I was listening, but I think the members of the Daily Show would approve.  The audio just makes the book that much funnier.  There are lots of photo shopped pictures to go along with the truly funny quips on the pages.  If you enjoyed America, you are going to love this one.
