With a rare mix of honesty, humor, and compassion, comedian and movie star Russell Brand mines his own wild story and shares the advice and wisdom he has gained through his 14 years of recovery. Brand speaks to those suffering along the full spectrum of addiction - from drugs, alcohol, caffeine, and sugar addictions to addictions to work, stress, bad relationships, digital media, and fame. Brand understands that addiction can take many shapes and sizes and how the process of staying clean, sane, and unhooked is a daily activity.

First, Please Forgive My Hubris In Writing A Review

Recovery was generous and beautiful. It is a primer for facing the fragility of human existence as well as a genuine life buoy for someone struggling with any kind of addiction in any of its forms. The writing was brave and vulnerable, and it somehow allowed me to reveal my vulnerability to myself bravely. The message was profound, yet quite simple. If you need to change, you can - since you can, then do - here's how. I do hope that anyone who needs this book finds it, and I suspect that could be almost everyone. Listen to it or read it for yourself and see. Thank you Russell.
