46. "America: A Citizen's Guide to Democracy Inaction" - Jon Stewart
I've meant to read this for a while; if the Daily Show were on earlier, I would be a huge Jon Stewart fan. The book does not disappoint.
Although you need to know some of your history to understand the best jokes, this book - in textbook format, of course - goes through the good, the bad, and the ugly of American history. Snarkiness aplenty. And where else would you learn about countries historical leaders, as well as whether there is a salad dressing named after them?
This is my Fourth of July pick and a nice chocolate martini read it was, thank you.
3.0 out of 5.0 Romulan Ales.
