About this book

Book Summary

From Stephen Colbert, the host of television's highest-rated punditry show The Colbert Report, comes the book to fill the other 23 hours of your day. I Am America (And So Can You!) contains all of the opinions that Stephen doesn't have time to shoehorn into his nightly broadcast.

Dictated directly into a microcassette recorder over a three-day weekend, this book contains Stephen's most deeply held knee-jerk beliefs on The American Family, Race, Religion, Sex, Sports, and many more topics, conveniently arranged in chapter form.

Always controversial and outspoken, Stephen addresses why Hollywood is destroying America by inches, why evolution is a fraud, and why the elderly should be harnessed to millstones.

You may not agree with everything Stephen says, but at the very least, you'll understand that your differing opinion is wrong.

"Starred Review. [A] book that is sure to be a bestseller and match the success of Colbert's former Daily Show boss Jon Stewart's America (The Book)." - PW.

I have read a lot of books, this one was the worst by a country mile. I shouldn't say that it was read, I only struggled through about half before throwing it into the recycling bin. Thank goodness that I didn't pay for it, It was found in a condo that we bought. I would have been hounding this shameless shill for my money back.

Extreme sarcasm works for this goofball in a standup routine but as printed word it is tiresome drivel.
