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!
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... Read morePublished on Aug. 15 2013 by Patricia Robinson

I'm a Jon Stewart fan. The layout of the book surprised me but I found it very funny. If you like sarcastic humor you will enjoy the book. Well worth the purchase!Published on Jan. 27 2011 by Swiss
Much like others, I enjoy The Daily Show but found this book lacking. It reads like an encyclopedia and the jokes often fall flat. Read morePublished on Jan. 10 2011 by Aksunai
