From the host of television's comedy-punditry show The Colbert Report, comes the book to fill the other 23 hours of your day. This book contains all of the opinions that Stephen doesn't have time to shoehorn into his nightly broadcast, his most deeply held knee-jerk beliefs on The American Family, Race, Religion, Sex, Sports, and many more topics, conveniently arranged in chapter form. 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.--From publisher description.… (plus d'informations)

Received this as a birthday gift from my brother years ago. We are both huge Colbert fans. And while reading the pages of this book, you can hear the host's voice in its writings, the book is no substitution for the cable television show in its entertainment value and informative satire. It just feels like something was lost in transition. Never did finish this book. But if I ever meet Mr. Colbert, at least I'll have something to have autographed. ( )

a very dumb book - stick to late-night ( )

I have been looking forward to reading this for a while. Our library finally got the new bestsellers collection processed, so I have checked it out. I just started it.

Actually, the book is a bit disappointing. It has its funny moments, but there is a lot of fluff in between the funny parts. It does capture the tone of any pundit book out there, and that may actually work against it as well; pundit books suffer from the problem of just going on too long to make their point. And I think that is the problem with the book: it just goes on too long, and some of the jokes seem to stretch on forever. While I like him on The Colbert Report, Mr. Colbert should probably stick to that. Unless you are a really hardcore fan of the Colbert Nation, you can probably safely skip this book. A lot of it you have already seen it on the show if you watch the show, and the rest is just plain boring. ( )

A few weeks ago I was mooching around a bookshop and I was unhappy. Why was I unhappy, you ask? None of your business, I reply brusquely, this is a book review not one of your group therapy sessions. Nonetheless, since I brought up the subject, I'll tell you why I was unhappy. It was because there was something missing in my life. And that something was America.

As I shuffled around feeling forlorn and book covers, one book in particular caught my attention and finger. I recognised Stephen Colbert on the cover, having seen his Report many a time. I read the title: I Am America. "Gee thanks, Stephen, you devilishly handsome man," I thought, feeling that now even books were mocking my pain. But then I saw the parenthetical subtitle: (And So Can You!)

"Truly? Could a Limey like me really be America?" I thought. And then I thought: "Wait, is Limey right? Is that what Americans call us Britons?" That's how much I wasn't America.

And now? Colbert has opened my eyes. Not literally; my eyes were already open before reading the book, that's kind of a prerequisite for doing so. But metaphorically my eyes were screwed shut with superglue, and Colbert had a screwdriver made of industrial strength solvent. Just a few days ago I was minus zero on the American scale, but thanks to Colbert I'm now a million times that. And so can you! ( )

If ''I Am America (And So Can You!)'' had nothing but its title, its Colbert cover portrait and 230 blank pages instead of printed ones, it would make a cherished keepsake just the same.
