For everyone who was too cheap to buy the hardcover, the blockbuster, award-winning No. 1 New York Times bestseller is now in trade paperback--with a new introduction, fully updated, and with equally unsettling nude photos of the newest Supreme Court justices, and a text corrected by the most reputable college professor we could find/afford.
Naked Pictures of Famous People
America (The Book) [Audio CD]
The Daily Show with Jon Stewart: Indecision 2004 [DVD]
Starred Review. Comedy Central's TheDaily Show proudly touts itself as a fake news show, so it's fitting that phony blurbs adorn this audiobook's packaging ("A Bridget Jones's Diary for the comedic nonfiction government textbook set," says Melissa Bank, author of The Girls' Guide to Hunting and Fishing; and "So informative, I even found out who I was," raves Albert Gallatine, Secretary of the Treasury from 1801–1814). The discs inside offer more deadpan wit, as the authors trace not only the history of America, but of democracy and humanity, all in a mere four hours. The editors and producers who handled this audio adaptation deserve a round of applause; they managed to take a book dependent on a wealth of charts, graphs and sidebars and translate it into audio while still preserving the fact that the book is a parody of a textbook. The result is a highly entertaining listen that showcases the expert comic delivery of Stewart and his Daily Show "correspondents" Samantha Bee, Stephen Colbert, Rob Corddry and Ed Helms. Stewart narrates the bulk of the audiobook, and the others chime in at the end of each chapter to read the "supplemental material," which includes Discussion Questions, Classroom Activities and sidebars on everything from how things are done differently in Canada to why the founding fathers were "unelectable." Nifty sound effects (like classroom bells) and well-chosen music (which consists primarily of stately, almost pompous horn orchestrations) round out this excellent audio package.

Don't know why I waited so long to get these books from Stewart and Colbert. They're even better on audio CD, made the daily commute bearable.Published 20 days ago by Tan Gent
I have just paged through some of it but from what I've already read it should be (hopefully) get even better. Read morePublished 27 days ago by R. T.
My evenings will never be the same after Jon leaves The Daily Show, but I've got the book!
Guess I'll cut the cord for good.
This book is definitely what I expected. My professor talked about it in my Pop Culture, Media, and Politics course in a previous semester and said she even owns it herself.Published 3 months ago by BC
