|A guide to all kinds of addiction from a star who has struggled with heroin, alcohol, sex, fame, food and eBay, that will help addicts and their loved ones make the first steps into recovery "This manual for self-realization comes not from a mountain but from the mud...My qualification is not that I am better than you but I am worse." Russell Brand 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 fourteen years of recovery. Brand speaks to those suffering along the full spectrum of addictionfrom 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. He believes that the question is not "Why are you addicted?" but "What pain is your addiction masking? Why are you runninginto the wrong job, the wrong life, the wrong person's arms?" Russell has been in all the twelve-step fellowships going, he's started his own men's group, he's a therapy regular and a practiced yogiand while he's worked on this material as part of his comedy and previous bestsellers, he's never before shared the tools that really took him out of it, that keep him clean and clear. Here he provides not only a recovery plan, but an attempt to make sense of the ailing world.|

|Reviews||Praise for My Booky Wook :"A child's garden of vices, My Booky Wook is also a relentless ride with a comic mind clearly at the wheel... .The bloke can write. He rhapsodizes about heroin better than anyone since Jim Carroll... .Russell Brand has a compelling story."- New York Times Book Review "There is nothing [Brand] won't reveal in search of a laugh and nothing he hasn't done in search of love or experience or oblivion... An exceptional combination of candor, ardor, and humor."- The Guardian|

Mandatory read for everyone
This is a book for everyone, it's very witty and there is not one single person that doesn't have negative behaviors. Please look past some colorful expletives (for those who don't use such language) because this raw material is a solution to the things that take our authentic selves away from this world. Anything that robs us from living in the present is a negative coping mechanism. Addiction is something that swallows up our God given talents and keeps us paralyzed. Everyone can benefit from the 12 Steps and applying them in our lives. Please read and share this book about solutions, no need to wallow in problem. I've been doing that for to long, it's my time to apply the solution. God bless you Russell Brand!
