really liked it
Read in June, 2009

As a fellow alum of The College of William and Mary, I expected good things from Jon Stewart in this "book". He didn't disappoint, although this was obviously a big team effort. It's a comical look at America's history and political setup, with just enough truth to make the message he's getting across come through (which is the US may be pretty screwed up, but it could be worse probably). While I enjoyed it as a "sit down and read for 10 minutes at a time" sort of book, I would like to see an actual viewpoint book by him, along the lines of Al Franken's writing, or the multiple 'pundits' writing from the conservative side. Think this one was fun and funny, but one that had humor but a more current perspective would definitely be worth the read.

All in all, if you are a fan of his, definitely worth reading at some point.
