The Check-InEdit

Stephen recommends that if you buy 23 books this year, 14 of them should be I Am America (And So Can You!), coming to tome stands and volumeries next week (October 9, 2007).

Early reviews from Stephen himself after looking it over declare it "excellent".

Other reviews:

The "must-support-my-husband" book of the fall
My Wife Times Picayune

The Most American Book Ever is not for professionals (people who are good at reading); it's for Real Americans.


  • Iran Not Far Away
"Are we preparing for war with Iran? I hope so, we've got to free those hostages; it's Day 10,194!"
  • Snooze Alarm
"Then, can sleep deprivation kill you? It's a terrifying story, guaranteed to keep you up at night!"
  • Taming The Savage
"The, my guest Charlie Savage has written a book about the return of the imperial presidency. I hope this means we can feed the press corps to the lions!"
