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.

I think its great that Jon Stewart narrates. He has a great voice, and since he knows the material the best, he presents it in the best way. Unfortunately, the book is full of pictures! an audiobook does not do it justice. Furthermore, this book is a little funny, but more deep. Donr get me wrong, i love Stewart, but i was suprised to find that the jokes wear off a bit and some parts, especially the page on communism, were depressing. Still, i recommend you check it out yourself.
Earth is well spoker and tells me the facts of earth. Jon you roc! and so does the daily show!!
earth: a visitors guide
This was such fun to listen to! Narrated by Jon Stewart and the gang, it's a romp through the human experience as seen by those reporting to aliens after our total destruction. Really a good time, if you love Jon Stewart and the Daily Show crew.
