Earth (the Book)
This came out sometime last year and I meant to snag it then, but as luck would have it they were giving away free copies of it at the comedy awards, so I grabbed one there! On a laugh-per-page count this book ranks pretty damn high in being one of the funniest things I've ever read. Written as a guide to our planet for alien visitors to find after we destroy our race, it's a pretty nasty look at ourselves as a race and tackles pretty much every subject associated with us. I was tempted to throw some of the better comments in my review here, but they often rely so heavily with the photos associated with them. If you're a fan of Jon Stewart and his people this is absolutely a must-own, or if you just like to take a cynical look at our species it's hard to go wrong with this. A perfect coffee table book and a great gift. I would pay for this had I not gotten it for free!!!
