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.

The repetition is a bit daunting. I do realize its necessity. The only way to drive these messages home is to repeat, repplay, and relive them. As an atheist, participating in certain 12 step programs can be a challenge due to their heavy christian undertones. They turn me off. Russell has a way of making it more neutral and easier to relate to. I highly recommend this book to everyone. We all have gaps and lacking. This can help.
