Now This Is Funny

Folks, go read this book now. Yes, I mean now. Run off to your nearest bookstore and get a copy now. No, you know what? Fuck it, who's gonna listen to my suggestions of a worthwhile book anyways?

Jon Stewart's America: A Citizen's Guide to Democracy Inaction is the book I'm talking about, and it's entertaining yet factual as hell. It's written to look like a highschool textbook, complete with quizzes, do-its, factsheets, group discussion questions, classroom activity sections, and of course, lots of pictures.

Me putting it as Jon Stewart's book is just an euphemism of The Daily Show's entire team writing the book, you even get Stephen Colbert, Samantha Bees, and Ed Helms. The only person that's missing here is Rob Riggle. Where's Rob Riggle (and John Oliver)!?

You see, Rob Riggle is the man.
Not only is he a Senior Military Affairs Correspondent, he's also a Senior Military Analyst, Asian Coup Correspondent, Senior DNC(Democratic National Convention) Correspondent, Senior War Correspondent, Senior Olympics Correspondent, and a whole lot of other correspondments. Besides, you can't beat military experience, or so John McCain seems to put it. But that's another post for another day.

Anyway, you'll notice just from the picture above, that it says 'With a Foreword by Thomas Jefferson'.

The Thomas Jefferson.

From about 200 years ago.

Doesn't it ring a bell?

The person who wrote the Declaration of Independence.

This guy.

I don't know how he came to be around 200 years later to write a foreword, but yeah, whatever.

The book separates itself into chapters, and heck it's useful. Not only did I learn about America, I learnt about the world.

Hahaha, words cannot describe how entertaining this book is to the average reader. Every section is equally humourous, and equally straight to the point.

Look at this, under Landmark Supreme Court Cases, together with Roe v. Wade (1973) and Brown v. Board of Education (1954)

or this commentary by Stephen Colbert.

Heck, even this explains how Nixon got his nickname.

If there's still not a smile or a grin or any sign of humanity on your smuglooking face, I give up. Go read Dilbert instead.

I loved the section on Congress (Chapter 4), The Future of Democracy (Chapter 8) and The Rest of the World (Chapter 9).

Politics 101? Screw it. Read this book instead.

The last time I checked, this book was worth RM82.90 at Times Pavilion. Hardback, with about 230 pages of kickass information. You can even play boardgames on it.

GET IT NOW!! Because I give it 8.5/10.

oh and get a hardcopy for me too please.

If not, Dick Cheney'll shoot you in the face.
Like what the Texas Monthly says.
Do It Now!!!
