I love Jon Stewart. I love The Daily Show. If you feel the same, you'll like this audiobook as well. It is written to guide the alien visitors after the ultimate demise of the human race (we all know it's coming, just not which way we're going...too many options). It is read by Jon Stewart and some correspondents from the show and it was done very well, I greatly enjoyed it. I particularly liked the chapter on religion (factually based but with a comedic flare that highlights the absurdity of it all) and the FAQs--Future Alien Questions (great questions which largely highlight the ridiculous decisions and behaviors of humans in general). Overall, I greatly recommend.
