He's the MTV generation's master of modern humor, a star of film, TV, and the comedy stage. This sultan of savvy serves up a whip-smart, utterly original collection of comic essays in Naked Pictures of Famous People. And as of January 11, 1999, you can enjoy the intelligence and self-deprecating charm he brings to contemporary comedy on  "The Daily Show." In his first book, he translates that unique talent to the page, with humorous forays into a vast array of subjects: fashion, urban life, fast cars, cocktail culture, modern Jewishness, politics, and dating.

The popular comedian, film star, and TV personality presents a humorous venture into such topics as fashion, cocktail culture, fast cars, modern Jewishness, dating, politics, and urban life.

A book of hilarious satire and stories with trademark John Stewart humor, the essays are quick and fun reads. ( )

Some are quite good, some are not. ( )

As much as I love Jon Stewart, I was completely disappointed by this book. A lot of it was just sheer determination to finish because, come on, it's Jon Stewart, it has to get funny, right? There were a couple of very funny "chapters" (specifically "Martha Stewart's Vagina), but for the most part, I was just glad it was over. Phew. ( )

Stewart... has something of a fat-target problem, and seems partly unaware of this problem’s source in his own need to please an audience that has a limited range of reference.
