In this case, by "read" I meant "skimmed pretty thoroughly" while I processed it for library circulation. While it doesn't disappoint, it's not mind-blowing/eye-opening like An Inconvenient Truth. In fact, I already forgot most of the content. I just know I chuckled to myself a few times.

Doesn't quite hit the highs of the Colbert books and some of the comedy hasn't aged all that well, but most of it has

This book was not as funny as America. I laughed a few times, but I'm glad I rented it from the library and didn't buy it.
