Jon Stewart, host of the Emmy and Peabody Award-winning "The daily show," and his coterie of patriots, deliver a hilarious look at American government. American-style democracy is the world's most beloved form of government, which explains why so many other nations are eager for us to impose it on them. But what is American democracy? In "America (the book)," Jon Stewart and "The daily show" writing staff offer their insights into our unique system of government, dissecting its institutions, explaining its history and processes, and exploring the reasons why concepts like one man, one vote, government by the people, and every vote counts have become such popular urban myths. Topics include: Ancient Rome: the first Republicans; The founding Fathers: young, gifted, and white; The media: can it be stopped?; and more!… (mere)

    An inconvenient book: real solutions to the world's biggest problems af Glenn Beck (DistortedSmile)
    DistortedSmile: If you like Jon Stewart's humour, but want something from a little different angle, you can tackle this book by Glenn Beck. I'd never heard of him before and decided to read this....I was pleasantly surprised at his take on major political/economic/personal issues and found his sense of humour subtle, but refreshing.… (mere)

What a wit. Found myself giggling on almost every page. Fun read. ( )

cute. ( )

While humorous, there are some very cringe-worthy moments in this book. Mostly the overemphasis on using r*tard as an insult, and accusing people they don't like of being "secretly gay" (as we know, the worst possible insult to a straight). It just got tiring.

It does give a succinct look at American Democracy, from the different branches of government to the history of the nation. The book helps explain the functions of the executive branch, the checks and balances of the Senate and Congress, and the judicial branch. There is a brief look at the possible future of America. The final chapter consists of infographics covering the rest of the world, and why, in the writers' opinions, it's not worth going.

Even though the book is now dated, being from 2004, there are still some poignant facts through the haze of rude punch-downs and occasional poorly executed jokes. Still worth a read, I think.

I do like how the whole book is laid out like a classic school textbook. ( )

not a new classic ( )

Very funny! I read it through, not in small doses like other people said they have and I still thought it was a great read! Jon Stewart & team are truly some of the best comedians who use intelligence, wit & smart humor! ( )

Stewart and his co-authors (there are 18 of them!) have few illusions about transforming the American electorate with this instructional tome.

But they aren't altogether pessimistic: "Even if there isn't a Jefferson or Hamilton among you," they conclude, "if you just smash together the basic ideas of this book you're bound to wind up with something better than North Korea."

"Jefferson, you're on the two. Hamilton? You get the ten. I'm calling dibs on the one. That's all me, baby. What's that, Adams? You wanted the one? All right, that's it: You don't get to be on anything. That's right, I'm taking back the quarter. Anyone else want to complain? I didn't think so."

Quipped a jubilant Hamilton, "The only way it could fail is if one party gained control of not just the Executive, but also the Senate and the House chambers and upon doing so, proceeded to bring in like-minded judges!!!!" And then the Framers all laughed and laughed and laughed.
