  "Quick Easy Read Beware If Looking for Gushing Admiration" by zodejodie4 (see profile) 03/02/15

This was a relatively quick, easy read. If you're looking for a deep dive into the enigma that is Jon Stewart though, you'll be disappointed. While this book is well researched you won't gain any critical insight into what makes Jon Stewart who he is. You won't know what drives him or makes him tick. You won't get inside his head. This book is much more am exposition on The Daily Show & how it has become what it is during Stewart's tenure. Be forewarned, the book also has a tendency to portray Stewart & the atmosphere at The Daily Show in a less than flattering light. If you're looking for glowing praise, look elsewhere.
