The eagerly awaited new book from the Emmy-winning, Oscar-hosting, Daily Show-anchoring Jon Stewart--the man behind the megaseller America (The Book).

Where do we come from? Who created us? Why are we here? These questions have puzzled us since the dawn of time, but when it became apparent to Jon Stewart and the writers of The Daily Show that the world was about to end, they embarked on a massive mission to write a book that summed up the human race: What we looked like; what we accomplished; our achievements in society, government, religion, science and culture -- all in a tome of approximately 256 pages with lots of color photos, graphs and charts.

After two weeks of hard work, they had their book. EARTH (The Book) is the definitive guide to our species. With their trademark wit, irreverence, and intelligence, Stewart and his team will posthumously answer all of life's most hard-hitting questions, completely unburdened by objectivity, journalistic integrity, or even accuracy.

Also available as an ebook and as an audiobook.

Is the planet we live on. The only planet with life. Earth is the 3rd planet from the sun.

The Daily Show crew have put together another comedic gem with “Earth: The Book”. This next installment in their “educational series” presents itself as a textbook on all things physically, culturally, historically, and spiritually Earth-related. There’s humor inside for everyone: the old, the young, males, females, Chinese people, and even politicians. And best of all, its perfect to read in the bathroom! What more could you ask?
