Book store nation, in the history of mankind there has never been a greater country than . You could say we're the #1 nation at being the best at greatness.
But as perfect as is in every single way, is broken! And we can't exchange it because we're 236 years past the 30-day return window. Look around--we don't make anything anymore, we've mortgaged our future to , and the Apologist-in-Chief goes on world tours just to bow before foreign leaders. Worse, the Four Seasons Hotel doesn't even have a dedicated phone button for the Spa. You have to dial an extension! Where did we lose our way?!
It's high time we restored to the greatness it never lost!
Luckily, AMERICA AGAIN will singlebookedly pull this country back from the brink. It features everything from chapters, to page numbers, to fonts. Covering subject's ranging from healthcare ("I shudder to think where we'd be without the wide variety of prescription drugs to treat our maladies, such as think-shuddering") to the economy ("Life is giving us lemons, and we're shipping them to the Chinese to make our lemon-flavored leadonade") to food ("Feel free to deep fry this book-it's a rich source of fiber"), Stephen gives America the dose of truth it needs to get back on track.
The packaging of this audio edition of Comedy Central satirist Stephen Colbert's latest title features an icon promoting the recording's "3-D High-Def Surroundiness." While this claim clearly follows Colbert's pattern of tongue-in-cheek buzzwords and taglines, the production quality does contribute to a satisfying listening experience, as voices and sounds including a stoner commentator's bubbling bong water are distinctly rendered in the fashion of live theater. Colbert's narrative steeped in his characteristic irony weaves expository chapters on various hot-button issues with monologues from individual citizens. With the possible exception of the aforementioned stoner, the most memorable of these characters is a silver-tongued energy industry spokeswoman who embodies the very essence of spin in the current media culture. Colbert's brand of entertainment occupies a unique niche in the marketplace, and regardless of whether the punch lines click for individual listeners, the comedian's latest offering remains unmistakably faithful to that brand. A Grand Central hardcover.

Not iPad optimized
This book is funny, but the poor iPad optimization is disappointing. This looks like the free ebook format that Blurb offers and is not an iPad optimized .epub format like most books from the iTunes store. I expected better quality from Stephen Colbert.
Man is a genius.
