America Again: Re-Becoming the Greatness We Never Weren’t
By Stephen Colbert
Grand Central Pub., 2012. 240 pgs. Nonfiction
On his TV show, Colbert provides his enthusiastic fans with an interesting and entertaining version of the news. In his second book, he provides an interesting and entertaining look at his version of America. Hot topics include jobs, healthcare, Wall Street, and, my favorite, food. Always funny, sometimes offensive, and never to be taken seriously.
The truth is, Stephen Colbert is hilarious, regardless of the medium. I listened to the audio version of America Again and I believe that is the perfect way to experience it. You miss out on the charts and the glossy illustrations, but Colbert’s narration adds more than you lose. For fans of Colbert or Jon Stewart type humor, this is a no brainer.
