The Truth - The Facts

This book is whitty, funny, and just great. The best work involving John Stewert since his showing on CrossFire. Even without Facts, It's as close to the TRUTH about America's government as we are ever going to get. Trust me on that one.

I love Jon Stewart and think that the Daily Show is hilarious, but I found that it just does not translate well to this medium. The layout of the book is cluttered, arbitrary and confused, while the writing is beneath the standards of the TV show and quite frankly pretty lame. Perhaps the greatest strength of the show is the personalities of the performers and their delivery of the material, and that just does not come across at all in this book.

    a waste of time

    An unbelievable waste of time and effort. Stewart's humor does not translate well to the written word and is a disappointment. The sad part is that there are certainly people out there who will misinterpret his buffoonery for real history. Save the jokes for TV

    Why the x-rated pictures?

    I bought this book for my high school age son who enjoys a good debate on the government and would have found this book very funny. I had to return it before I gave it to him because of the nudity. What was the point of that? I was really disapointed that the choice was made to put nude pictures in an otherwise funny/tongue-in-cheek look at the government.
