Don't get me wrong, this is a good book. But Stephen Colbert as a character has grown and changed over the years, and this is very much Early Colbert. Reading this after watching him now kind of takes the fun out of his old material.
Great book! If you know Colbert you know you are in for a treat!! Cant recommend it enough!! Especially in these trying political times, we need men like this! Long live Colbert!!!
Rambling, disconnected and definitely BORING. Makes me think his talk show writers don't get proper credit......if this is supposedly what he thinks on his own.
I laughed. I cried. I laughed again>I only lost 2 pounds though.
Great fun for any Report fan.
Wickedly funny book by Colbert and company, lampooning the typical conservative pundit by acting just like one. If you're a fan of the show, you'll understand the book, which is appropriately biting when it needs to be.
There's something amazing about how on-tone this book was. It was like Colbert was right there reading it to me. It was just so... Colbert-y. Sure, there's nothing that's exactly surprising - it's all what you expect from Colbert - but it's very funny. Something to get you through those dark weeks when the Daily Show and Colbert Report folks are on vacation (again).
Sir Dr. Stephen T. Colbert, DFA, is America. If you read this book, then you, too, can become America. If you love America, you will love this book, and America will love you.
In the absence of so many great Americans from the past: Jefferson, Roosevelt, Roosevelt, Fillmore, Reagan... Sir Dr. Colbert fills in the void that has been left in the Great American Dialogue. This book says what "The Great Gatsby" never could.
This book gets it.
