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.

This is a book I think everyone could benefit from reading because it addresses addictive behavior in general: overeating to smoking or Smartphone dependency. Russel Brand takes a fresh and inspiring, no-holes-barred approach to sharing his personal, addiction recovery story. I laughed, I cried and many times was awestruck at how eloquently he articulated the bittersweet and beautiful human condition. It is helpful and hopeful for those ready to recover.
