really liked it
bookshelves: humor
Read in April, 2008

If you are at all familiar with The Daily Show With John Stewart, then you pretty much know what this book will be like. Two notes:

(1) The book is also a parody of school textbooks, from the obvious (and great) "Classroom Activities" at the end of each chapter to more subtle touches like the bold text used for key vocabulary words.

(2) There is a fair amount of profanity, sometimes used well but sometimes a jarring attempt at a cheap laugh.

Joe I've got to read this. I just finished listening to Colbert's book on America (you're welcome to borrow the CD.) It is hilarious as well - especially the part on college and elitism.
