From Stephen Colbert, the host of US 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.

I Am America (And So Can You!) showcases Stephen Colbert at his most eloquent and impassioned. He is an unrelenting fighter for the soul of America, and in this book he fights the good fight for the traditional values that have served America so well for so long.

Rambling, disconnected and definitely BORING. Makes me think his talk show writers don't get proper credit......if this is supposedly what he thinks on his own.

Wickedly funny book by Colbert and company, lampooning the typical conservative pundit by acting just like one. If you're a fan of the show, you'll understand the book, which is appropriately biting when it needs to be.

There's something amazing about how on-tone this book was. It was like Colbert was right there reading it to me. It was just so... Colbert-y. Sure, there's nothing that's exactly surprising - it's all what you expect from Colbert - but it's very funny. Something to get you through those dark weeks when the Daily Show and Colbert Report folks are on vacation (again).

The man is funny but his book is not nearly as amusing. HIs writing is not clever. I tired of his commentary after the first 20 pages--it's the same old sarcastic insulting jokes over and over. There's no variety, no freshness to maintain your interest. You're better off watching the Colbert Report.

Sir Dr. Stephen T. Colbert, DFA, is America. If you read this book, then you, too, can become America. If you love America, you will love this book, and America will love you.

In the absence of so many great Americans from the past: Jefferson, Roosevelt, Roosevelt, Fillmore, Reagan... Sir Dr. Colbert fills in the void that has been left in the Great American Dialogue. This book says what "The Great Gatsby" never could.

This book gets it.
