Hilarious and irreverent, this book is a must read for anyone who has ever taken a Political Science or US Government class. It really takes the edge off. I have the Teacher's Edition with marginal notes correcting the many factual inaccuracies. The pull out poster of the Shadow Government structure in this edition is the centerpiece of my office wall.

The Daily Show with Jon Stewart is a work of comedy genius, so its no surprise that a book written by the same people would maintain the same stellar quality. America: The Book is as entertaining as it is informative, and is jam-packed with pictures, sidebars, and guest commentaries from the show's correspondents. A must read for any lover of the show.
