The Daily Show with Jon Stewart Presents Earth (The Book): A Visitor's Guide to the Human Race

Earth (The Book): A Visitor's Guide to the Human Race - Jon Stewart, Rory Albanese, Kevin Bleyer, Rich Bloomquist, Steve Bodow, Tim Carvell, Wyatt Cenac, Hallie Haglund, J.R. Havlan, David Javerbaum, Elliott Kalan, Josh Lieb, Sam Means, Jo Miller, John Oliver, Daniel Radosh, Jason Ross As usual with Stewart and his host of Daily Show writers, a brilliant piece of satire that has a solid structure in the form of textbook for the intrepid alien visitor to our planet. This book is similar to America: A Guide to Democracy inAction, and delivers in much the same respect. Not necessarily a cover-to-cover read, but a great, light read on a variety of topics that are hugely entertaining. Stewart is the funniest social commentator in America today, and what makes him so good is a rapier wit and a keen ability to reveal things for what they really are no matter how social convention and tradition have muddied the waters.
