The Daily Show with Jon Stewart Presents Earth (The Book)

A Visitor's Guide to the Human Race
By Jon Stewart (Hardcover Book, 2010)
The eagerly awaited new book from the Emmy-winning, Oscar-hosting, Daily Show-anchoring Jon Stewart--the man behind the megaseller America (The Book).

Where do we come from? Who created us? Why are we here? These questions have puzzled us since the dawn of time, but when it became apparent to Jon Stewart and the writers of The Daily Show that the world was about to end, they embarked on a massive mission to write a book that summed up the human race: What we looked like; what we accomplished; our achievements in society, government, religion, science and culture -- all in a tome of approximately 256 pages with lots of color photos, graphs and charts.

After two weeks of hard work, they had their book. EARTH (The Book) is the definitive guide to our species. With their trademark wit, irreverence, and intelligence, Stewart and his team will posthumously answer all of life's most hard-hitting questions, completely unburdened by objectivity, journalistic integrity, or even accuracy.

Also available as an ebook and as an audiobook.

  • "[T]he devil's own comedic handiwork, a side-splitting guide to the abuses and absurdities built into our political processes and institutions." (New York Times).

  • "[T]he most ecumenical, evenhanded, and hilarious political satire since...Our Dumb Century. (Grade: A)"

  • "[I]nspired parody....[T]he book's ultimate joke...is that it's not only more informative about how American government and culture work than the textbooks it burlesques, but gives us a keener sense of having a stake in both."
