Daily Dose Pick: Earth (The Book)

As a follow-up to his bestselling America (The Book), Jon Stewart offers a less-than-hard-hitting but endlessly amusing overview of our world in Earth (The Book): A Visitor’s Guide to the Human Race.

The Daily Show anchor adopts a deadpan, textbook-style approach to that most peculiar of species, the human, and the planet on which it resides. Stewart and his team examine the origins of life (featuring a recipe for Emeril’s “Fiery Cajun-Style Primordial Gumbo”) and human reproduction (in which Alfred Hitchcock’s portly silhouette represents the climax of pregnancy), as well as providing explanations of political systems, commerce, and religion. The seemingly familiar has never seemed so hilariously foreign.
