When I first became interested in politics (The 2008 election when I was in 10th grade) I turned to The Daily Show for information. It felt like the only unbiased news source that wasn't trying to talk down to me, in fact it elevated the political discussions among my peers. When I picked this book off the shelf I figured it would be like catching up with an old friend, and I was mostly right. It brought me new information on some of my favorite Daily Show moments and also introduced me to the contentious history going on behind the scenes. The Oral History brought me to tears when they spoke about the 9/11 broadcasting and Jon leaving. It also caused me to break out into fits of laughter when they spoke about getting onto McCain's bus, or the crazy shenanigan's at the RNC and DNC. I was not anticipating the emotional roller coaster I went on with this book, but I am happy I read it nonetheless.
