Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book is sort of an encyclopedia about modern humans. The premise is that we don't have long to live as a species, so this book is meant to be a guide for future generations who somehow survive the upcoming apocalypse and/or aliens who visit our planet after we're gone. The book is in the format of a visual guide, with lots of scribble notes to explain the pictures. There is regular text too, but the book is really full of interesting and funny pictures.

The content runs the range from the Earth itself, biology, human biology, culture, science, and religion. The writing is classic Daily Show material. Jon (and members of his show) spare no one in their lampooning modern people, our culture, and our views of the world. Of course, special treatment is given to tea-baggers, or at least, people who think like they do. If you enjoy the Daily Show (and I do), I think you'll definitely enjoy the humor of this book. The humor is not for the faint-hearted, particularly those who are sensitive about religion. In a way, I think this is what Jon Stewart does best. Sure, his show is often more informative than the so called "news networks" (CNN, Fox, MSNBC), but at it's core it's a comedy show that tries to sneak in some information too. I think that's what this book does too. It's a funny book that also makes you stop and think for every once in a while. Which makes it just about perfect as a coffee table book (which it is supposed to be a parody of). I don't think it will be a timeless classic in comedy (for one thing, there's too many pop references), but right now, it's a great bit of light, funny reading. Highly recommended!

I had high hopes for this book, being a fan of Jon Stewart and the Daily Show. I was a bit disappointed as about half way through the book i realized this was it! There were a few laugh out loud spots that I thought made it a worthwhile read, but as a whole I was left feeling a better job could have been done.
On another note I felt the tone of the book was somewhat sexist, there was very little mention of women and the role they played in history and the jokes that poked fun at female stereotypes were not very original or clever.
It had the potential to be a witty and poignant addition to satire of humanity, but instead it fell flat.

Probably worth a read though.

Love John Stewart, didn't read much, but enough to know it wasn't my "cup of tea". When one has to try several times to "enjoy" it probably wasn't worth it to start with.

Yes, the human race is dead and we are being visited by aliens. This book is introducing us, as an extinct species, to the visitors from far away. In the process, the blue planet we lived on, all we were and what we did has been described in such a way that belittles all our achievements, such as mass destruction, environmental degradation, love for pomp and show, etc. and all our peoples and ideologies, such as tea baggers, religions, governments, etc. If the aliens visit us in the future, long after we have self destructed, it will leave a really bad picture of us for them. In my opinion, this book should be taken off the shelves pronto. We can help it by buying them off the shelves, off the warehouses and off the net. Not a single copy should be left for the aliens to read. And when you have bought your copy and contributed to this great cause, you might as well read it to laugh out at ourselves.

It wasn't the laugh a minute I was expecting. More of a slight grin kinda book. I don't regret buying it as I am a fan - and a coffee-tableish book by Jon Stewart is kinda like owning memerobilia of the show. As a stand alone book I would simple say `meh`.
