Summary
What The daily show is to evening news, The Colbert report is to personality-driven pundit shows. Colbert brings his sarcastic charm to a half-hour report, tackling the important issues of the day and telling his guests why their opinions are just plain wrong. Stephen stands for truthiness and his American right to copyright that word and claim ownership of it. Stephen Colbert describes his audiobook as a simple audiobook from a simple mind--Stephen Colbert ... In plain conversational language, not to mention the occasional grunt and/or whistle, Stephen explains his take on the most pressing concerns of our culture: faith, family ... hygiene. Why now? Stephen fears America has lost its balls and he hopes to re-ballify us. Even the ladies. Ladies can have balls--lady-balls too. Stephen likes to call those "Thatchers." Stephen will show how he got his mammoth swinging sack, with tales of courage and vital documents from his own life: the Mother's Day card he made at age six, disputed credit card bills, putt-putt score cards--all the major milestones.
Published Reviews
Publisher's Weekly Review: "Realizing that "it takes more than thirty minutes a night to fix everything that's destroying America," Colbert bravely takes on the forces aligned to destroy our country-"whether they be terrorists, environmentalists, or Kashi brand breakfast cereals." His various targets include nature ("I've never trusted the sea. What's it hiding under there?"), the Hollywood Blacklist ("I would have named enough names to fill the Moscow phone book"), and atheists ("Imagine going through life completely duped into thinking that there's no invisible, omniscient higher power guiding every action on Earth. It's just so arbitrary!"). Colbert also provides helpful illustrations and charts ("Things That Are Trying to Turn Me Gay"), a complete transcript of his infamous speech at the 2006 White House Correspondents' Dinner, and a special "Holiday" DVD, all of which add up to a book that is sure to be a bestseller and match the success of Colbert's former Daily Show boss Jon Stewart's America (The Book).
