Sobre o livro
Where do we come from? Who created us? Why are we here? These are questions that have sporadically interested people since the dawn of time, but whose answers have continually eluded us. Now in a new book, Jon Stewart and The Daily Show writing staff (who include the team behind The Onion) tackle these questions and more with their trademark wit, irreverence and intelligence. In they will take us on an intellectual journey through time -- a quest back to the very moment of creation -- that will maybe, just maybe help us figure out exactly how and why everything got so irretrievably f****ed up.
Whether you believe our world was formed through a hundred-million-year-long process of protoplanetary accretion and collision, or from the head and shoulders of Coatlique, Lady of the Skirt of Snakes, after she was torn apart by the serpentine avatars of Quetzalcoatl and Tezcatlipoca, one thing's for certain: it's a heckava place. And who better to be our guide to this endlessly fascinating planet than Jon Stewart and his team of writers, as they answer all of life's most hardhitting questions, completely unburdened by objectivity, journalistic integrity or even accuracy.
