Brilliantly funny work by the Daily Show writers and staff, biting and snarky in just the right places.

Jon Stewart always knows how to make me laugh! From cover to cover there are little things that will grab your attention and make you laugh out loud. This is a great coffee table book because you can pick it up and read a few pages with no context! If I were an alien visiting earth, I would definitely have a copy of this with me!

Heather Mallick: "Every book produced by The Daily Show on the state of the planet and the humans that infest it is like a shot of vodka. It reduces the pain. Funny as hell, but unquotable. I won't like anyone who doesn't find this book to be a good, honest hunk of American genius, littered with the demotic that makes the nation loved despite its rulers and the giant strategic reserve of cluelessness that will be its ruination."
