America: A Citizen's Guide to Democracy Inaction by Jon Stewart, Ben Karlin, and David Javaerbaum


America: A Citizen's Guide to Democracy Inaction by Jon Stewart, Ben Karlin, and David Javaerbaum reads like you would expect - like a textbook only funnier.  At times, the humor takes a moment to absorb.  Other times it's laugh out loud funny.  If you enjoy political satire, you will enjoy this book.  The book's humor is grounded in historical accuracies and inaccuracies often with the funnier moments rising out of actual events.  At times, it feels like the writers tried too hard to inject humor.  At other times, the humor flows naturally.  America, just like The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, serves to remind us all that we often take ourselves and those who are telling us what to think way too seriously.  Stewart's message, as always, seems to be one we should all take to heart.  Think for yourself instead of being blindly lead by those in power.
