I Am America (and So Can You!)
Virgin, 2009 - Humor - 288 pages
Stephen Colbert wasThe Daily Show's longest-running and most memorable correspondent. His right-wing, super-patriotic persona, his insight and general rightness led toThe Colbert Report, a half-hour TV platform for his views on the issues of the day and, more importantly, why everyone else's views are just plain wrong.
I Am America (And So Can You!)features Stephen's most deeply held knee-jerk beliefs on everything from The Family to Race and Immigration and provides the ultimate satirical guide to the glorious marvel that is American Life. He bravely takes on the forces aligned to destroy America - whether they be terrorists, environmentalists, or brand-name breakfast cereals - and tackles difficult issues like religion, sexuality, and nature ('I've never trusted the sea. What's it hiding under there?')
With hilarious illustrations and charts ('Things That Are Trying to Turn Me Gay', 'Sports to Ignore' and many more) and a complete transcript of Colbert's infamous speech at the 2006 White House Correspondents' Dinner, this is a brilliant read as well as a very clever commentary on America today.

I love the Colbert Report, but after listening to his audio book I learned that he should be taken in small doses. Hours and hours of sarcasm just becomes mean after a while. Really, Stephen. You wanna take on old people? I eventually had to stop because he sounded like the other guys. Read full review
