Hit and miss comedy, worth it, but painfully ignorant at times.
The concept of the book is interesting: it is a message to future alien visitors, who's arrival comes too late for us to meet them in the flesh.
Instead, Stewart explains why we've long become extinct, and what we were like. With so much potential, I was disappointing they didn't do more with it. Predictably, the central focus was on how flawed human beings are. The authors seemed to miss all the interesting similarities and differences that the aliens would actually care about! I, like the aliens, got bored with politics.
