REVIEW Ø America (The Book): A Citizen's Guide to Democracy Inaction Read the com Interview with Jon Stewart • Listen to the com Interview with Jon Stewart • Watch a vintage com Exclusive Video from Jon StewartMore from Jon Stewart Naked Pictures of Famous People America The Book Audio CD The Daily Show with Jon Stewart Indecision 2004 DV. I must admit I m uite a fan of Jon Stewart s The Daily Show In a sea of ridiculous immature and unethical news reporting brought to us by the big corporations Stewart is not only hilarious but often offers key insight It is sad to me that a comedy show brought to us by the same network that thought prank calling puppets was funny has risen to be one the most insightful sources of news and politics That said America the Book held great promise for me Unfortunately it fails to deliverStewart uickly settles into a predictable shtick of summing up vast swaths of inaccurate history finishing each paragraph with an amusing exaggeration or silly comment He then backs this up with fake uotes from historical figures It s all well and good but it gets very predictable very fast The jokes are all very low hanging fruit The sharp sardonic wit that Stewart is known for on his show are almost completely absent here replaced with lame dull jokes that feel like they were written by a much less worthy comedianThere are a few chuckles here and there Few of the jokes are outright bad most are just hum drum The pattern of it becomes incredibly monotonous say two things that are simplifications but kind of true follow it up with a silly comment Then have fake Thomas Jefferson say something even silly See how Thomas Jefferson would never have said that It s funny No it s not funny You ll see the jokes coming from a mile away and while there are a small handful of snicker out loud moments they just leave a lot to be desiredSome of the other Daily Show participants chime in with essays here and there Ed Helms Stephen Colbert Samantha Bee and others try to enliven the book but don t succeed any than Stewart himself does The one moment where the book got really interesting was the beginning of the chapter on the media where Stewart goes on a tirade about the irresponsibility and disgusting immorality of the current state of mainstream news reporting before a fake editor interrupts to put the book back on its mediocre track The moment almost serves as a reminder of what the book could have been although the passage is far too polemical to be used as a template However the reader gets the feeling that somewhere behind this book is a insightful hilarious book that dealt with real issues in a funnier realistic wayUltimately this feels like an attempt to capitalize on the popularity of the show and get some extra cash out of it Thus it feels completely phoned in It s not the worst book ever and it s just the right length The average reader could crank through it in about an hour and a half It s probably good for a short plane ride or a couple of stints in the waiting room or post office line Unfortunately Stewart leaves his readers waiting for him to write a real bookIt should be noted that this review refers to the audiobook version of this book
