Pentagram, Jon Stewart and The Daily Show joins forces once again on another collection of laughs Earth (The Book): A Visitor's Guide to the Human Race, a humorous look and everything humanity is and has achieved throughout its existence. The design firm and comedy writers had originally joined forces on The Daily Show's first book, the best selling America (The Book): A Citizen's Guide to Democracy Inaction, which took its cues from civic textbooks of old. The new effort, however, takes inspiration from classic illustrated reference books like those created by Dorling Kindersley for National Geographic. Even more important, however, this next one promises many, many more jokes than its predecessor.
