At the BEA author breakfast back in May, I got to hear Jon Stewart talk a bit about this book -a guide to the Earth and the human race for the aliens that will inevitably find the barren wasteland we leave behind. We were also treated to a short, printed excerpt that produced a ton of giggles between Daniel and me. Fast forward to the September release date. We were at Watermark Books for Daniel's Buffalo book signing and saw a copy and had to get it.
Strangely, while the content structure has stayed pretty much the same, the jokes have mostly been changed. They are still giggle-inducing - just different. Be aware this book may not be for everyone (there is a naked picture of Larry King among other NC-17 content) but if you're not super sensitive and you like The Daily Show's brand of irreverant humor, this is one that will keep you laughing for days. It would also make a great last minute Christmas gift!
Check out the book's website, where you can apply to be reconstituted when and if the aliens who find Earth decide to repopulate the planet.
