Well, luckily, college is good for one thing. Can you guess what it is? I’ll. give you a hint: it starts with secret and ends with societies. Whether they be Fraternities or Eating Clubs or (in Louisiana) Parishes, universities are the best places a young man can meet and bond with, through an elaborate hazing process, those who can give him a leg up for the rest of his life.

They expand upon the Colbert persona, that of a self-loving loudmouth perched on the famous fine line between stupid and clever. The narrower I Am America sticks to ravings suitable for a mock Colbert memoir and further limits its range by avoiding explicit talk of government or politics - though it culminates in a reprint of Mr. Colbert’s blistering political speech delivered at the 2006 White House Correspondents’ Dinner.

The Colbert Nation will last for a thousand years! . You'll think it's a good book if you like the kind of humor that Stephen Colbert uses. He essentially pretends to be an extreme right-wing news correspondent like in his show. This is, of course, all for laughs.

I Am America (And So Can You!) will astonish you. This book is as hilarious insightful as Stephen Colbert himself. Stephen Colbert is a national treasure, highlighting both the ridiculousness of all things politics and the dichotomy of moral right and wrong. In “I Am America (And So Can You)”, Colbert shines doing what he does best: Explaining political concepts to uninformed readers while mocking and chiding the politicians who keep them in the dark. This book arrived fast and I was finished reading by the time the clock struck 1. I literally could not put this book down to eat. The binding on this book is beautiful, with a shiny velvet-red finish on the page-ends and a ribbon emblazoned with * First Edition * to mark your progress through this wonder of a book. The outside bindings are a beautiful red-white-and-blue themed menagerie and the heel of the book is engraved in bold lettering. The book throughout is filled with wonderful illustrations and images that fit the theme and style of the book and give it an overall cohesiveness that is shocking well built for a comedy book. However, Stephen Colbert has been constantly surprising us with his know-how and insight since his early career on the Daily Show. I am completely satisfied with this book, the shipping, and the content itself. Stephen Colbert has churned out another masterful book from his wonderful comedic mind and the word is a funnier, better, more politically informed place for it. Four Stars.

This will be my second read through of this book. I loved it, it was a fun read. Everyone should read it, since it automatically makes you 25% more patriotic just by opening it. I, sadly, lost my original copy while fleeing my manchild of a boyfriend's house. I must have abandoned many beloved tomes in my haste to no longer serve as my partner's surrogate mother, as I keep discovering books that I was certain I own, yet are nowhere to be found on my shelves. I chose the seller mostly at random, and boy, was I happy with the results! The shipping was faster than expected, the book itself is in excellent condition, and is a First Edition, and so is arguably better than the copy I'm replacing. It's all fancy with it's built in bookmark ribbon and stuff. I'm very happy with the purchase, freaking tickled, in fact. So if anyone runs into my ex boyfriend, tell his childish ass to have fun with his two boring, normal copies of I Am America And So Can You, while I enjoy my super awesome first edition!

If you like the Colbert Report, you'll love this book. If you don't like, or don't know, Stephen's completely insane Comedy Central TV show, you will probably still do a good bit of laughing, although perhaps against your will.

Colbert's basic shtick is that he is a conservative nutjob. He does it so well that some conservatives really do believe he's on their side. Of course, it's all satire; he's actually a progressive in very thin disguise.

Another important part of his shtick is that he's an egomaniac. He manages to combine these two elements quite deftly. He portrays a white male Catholic (which apparently he really was as a little boy) who has incredibly confused concepts of reality, religion, politics, and just about everything else.

The format of the book is also interesting. It has certain recurring "advertising" items, a segment entitled "Stephen Speaks for Me: A chance for average Americans to agree with what I think." Each chapter starts with a prologue shaped into an American flag, with one word where the field of stars would be, and all caps red print making up the stripes on the white background. He IS America, you see! There are marginal notes and footnotes that are quite as funny as the main text. There are two pages of stickers, one of flags to use for marginal comments, and one of stickers to put on other books to grant them "The Stephen T. Colbert for the Literary Excellence." (Yes, that superfluous article is in there.) There are fake games and quizzes and puzzles, and generally plenty of opportunity to have fun in the mad, mad, mad Colbert Nation.

There are also some real insights, so beware if you thought it was all just for laughs. You may find yourself laughing at something which is really too true to be funny, the way zen masters hit you upside the head.

I love this book.

I bought this because I am a huge fan of Stephen, but it was a tragic mistake. I opened it, read the forward, and I was assaulted by comedy!!! My lungs became instantly inflamed and hurt awfully. I need to read this two pages at a time at most, lest I go into traction! Thanks a whole hell of a lot Mr. Colbert!

I am a big fan of Stephen's show. I think he is witty and brilliant which became apparent during the writer's strike where he wrote all of his material himself. The book is akin to his show - just not as dense and as another reviewer noted - it gets a little repetitive after a while. Don't get me wrong - it is all in character of who he projects but a little digression here and there would have helped. I keep finding myself picking it up again from time to time and reading another bit but compared to 'America, the book' by his producer Jon Steward it pales.

Anyhow, it's inexpensive and if you like his style and find yourself killing some time - it's ok. But it is by far not as polished as I had hoped it would be. It seems he sat down and wrote what came to his mind. I had hoped for a little more effort.
