Product Description

Review

"AMERICA AGAIN: Re-Becoming The Greatness We Never Weren't is sure to become a classic as treasured as Moby-Dick or the CliffNotes to Moby-Dick."―Stephen Colbert on AMERICA AGAIN in GQ --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

About the Author

Stephen Colbert was The Daily Show's longest-running and most diverse correspondent. His personality, insight and overall rightness could only lead to The Colbert Report, a half-hour nightly platform for him to give his take on the issues of the day, and, more importantly, to tell you why everyone else's take is just plain wrong. The show has been hugely successful.

By A. Volk #1 HALL OF FAMETOP 10 REVIEWER on Oct. 6 2012
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I'm generally a fan of the Colbert Report. This book matches it very closely in its tone and content. If you're a fan of the show and its humor, than this is a five-star book. If you're not, then this book won't be quite as appealing to you. Personally, I laughed out loud 4 or 5 times reading the book, and chuckled to myself at least a dozen times. So I think it's funny, but not necessarily a laugh-riot funny. Again, if you find Colbert that funny on TV, you'll probably enjoy the book just as much.

The book consists of several chapters on topics like jobs, healthcare, elections, the legal system, food, and being drunk. Each chapter starts with a 3D picture of Colbert (the next page has a non-3D version if you don't want to use the 3D glasses included). The text is pretty funny, but it's the satirical footnotes that pack the most comedic punch. Each chapter has a section with Colbert writing a letter based on a character related to that chapter (e.g., a rich guy for elections, a Canadian talking about health care, or a hippie food-grower for food). There's lots of funny pictures too, including fake cut-outs, instructions on how to make a prison shank with the book, etc. The book goes from being somewhat political in its messages to just being funny as the book goes on. Overall I think this is a 4 or 4.5 star book. If you're a fan of Colbert's humor, you'll be a fan of this book. How much you'll enjoy the book depends on how much you enjoy Colbert (so I could see a 5-star fan of the show giving this book 5 stars). I can say this though, in the middle of a US election, it's nice to read something about the US that makes you laugh with it, rather than at it. That alone makes this book worth buying, so I'm happy to recommend Colbert's book. I only wish he was Canadian and could write one about Canada next!

Bought as a Christmas present for my husband- it was half way finished by the end of Christmas Day. Colbert impresses, yet again. Of course, if your looking for a deep read, look elsewhere. The book is witty satire at its finest, and in my opinion even better than his last!

Pretty entertaining in general with many very witty parts. Clearly Colbert has a unique, rich comedic mind. Often a lot of nonsense but also with a few real insights and a lot of good laughs

Once again, Colbert shows why he is the best at what he does. He masterfully takes us through our pitfalls and made me laugh out loud with his use of irony.

Highly recommended!
