Giveaway - Earth (The AudioBook) presented by The Daily Show with Jon Stewart

A Visitor's Guide to the Human Race

TITLE:    The Daily Show with Jon Stewart Presents Earth (The Book): A Visitor's Guide to the Human Race
INFO:    Audiobook, Humor, 3 CDs
PUBLISHED:   Hachette Audio, 2010
ISBN#:   978-1-60788-615-0
HOW'D I GET IT:   Received from Hachette Audio for Review and Giveaway

Where do we come from? Who created us? Why are we here? These questions have puzzled us since the dawn of time, but when it became apparent to Jon Stewart and the writers of The Daily Show that the world was about to end, they embarked on a massive mission to write a book that summed up the human race: What we looked like; what we accomplished; our achievements in society, government, religion, science, and culture - all in a lavishly produced audiobook of approximately 200 minutes.

After two weeks of hard work and nights in the recording studio, they had their audiobook. Earth (The Audiobook) is the definitive guide to our species. With their trademark wit, irreverence, and intelligence, Stewart and his team will posthumously answer all of life's most hard-hitting questions, completely unburdened by objectivity, journalistic integrity, or even accuracy.

Read by Jon Stewart, the Daily Show correspondents, and featuring a special performance by Sigourney Weaver.
