This was a quick (one-day) read. Basically an assembly of quotations from previously published interviews and profiles, which leads to some bizarre situations, where it *looks* like jokes are being passed along as "facts." But maybe that's just truthiness in action. I did learn a lot about Colbert's early life, though, and reading about the deaths of his father and brothers was devastating. Still, overall an amusing light read.
