The Daily Show (The Book): An Oral History as Told by Jon Stewart, The Correspondents, Staff and Guests by Chris Smith, 459 pages.
Chronological account of the show told through interviews with the people listed above. It starts as Craig Kilburn leaves the show and comedian and failed talk-show host Stewart takes over. Stewart isn't happy with the dynamics of the show he has inherited, but the writers and producers resist the changes. Everyone's view of what was happening is presented, sometimes with rebuttal from others, sometimes with the support of others. As the story grows longer, its great to have the index in the back so you can reread parts by the less famous to see their story told over time. Lost of interesting show history, interesting squabbles among the famous and less famous. A really great read for fans of the show.
