Earth: The Audiobook is an introduction to the planet earth, written for aliens who discover the planet after humans have destroyed each other. This "Daily Show" humor piece combines pop science and pop culture. Occasionally it hits on something really funny. However, most of the time it misses.

The delivery of the audiobook also leaves something to be desired. It manages to be dull and dry without even getting some of the "ironic" dryness.

The jokes attempt to place today's norms and concerns in a grand "timeless" history of the earth. It seemed like it could be a great source of humor. Instead it seemed that the political pontifications outnumbered the gut-bustingly funny jokes.
