    I really wanted to like this book and more then I actually did. I wanted to give this book 3.5 stars. It might be the fact that I actually do like Russell Brand and the message of the behind the book more than I actually liked the book. There are parts of the book that are very good...

    I've never been a huge fan of Russell Brand, but even before reading this I thought it was pretty fair to say he's someone who just might have something to offer on the subject of addiction. Actually, I was surprised by just how disarming his honesty was in the book, the level of bruta...

    There is a little anecdote in the book where Brand is speaking with a counselor, a grueling session that has gone on and detailed the darkest parts of his life and the severity of his addictions. When she stops speaking she looks at him awestruck, and in that little pause, that on a sh...

    Fantastic...I laughed, I cried, I nearly peed myself! Russell takes you on an expedition of self-actualization and wonder. He lays out a convincing argument espousing we are all just experiencing a temporary journey through what Prince would call "this thing called 'life.'" It is an ab...

    3,45/5 I really liked this. It?s obvious that Russell is a very interesting and intelligent person, I was amazed by how beautiful he can write. The book is part personal memoir and part self help, following a 12 step program for getting rid of basically any type of addiction that ...

    If you are even the slightest bit unhappy or dissatisfied with your life and want to make changes but don't know how, I urge you to read this book. It sets out the 12 Steps programme and how you apply it to your life in order for you to realise and recognise the patterns that you conti...

    Never has the controversial genre of Self Help been graced by a more beautiful, a more eloquent, a more truthful or a more effective addition to its aisles. Russel Brand is a poet, and a very human human being who is very good at understanding other human beings and calling them out. I...

    A very honest, sincere and well-written book with a broad appeal. I read it in a day, so quite an engrossing read too. Those who are easily put off by segues into Brandesque spiritual "claptrap", should not be put off from reading it. He has interpreted the 12-step programme to make it...

    Throughout the entire book, I couldn't stop wishing for everyone I know to read this. I don't think there was anything i didn't know, but it had the things i love from self help books, plus the things i can tolerate from mystical books, and the things i like about new atheism, and s...

    ?If your are dealing with any addiction issue, however quiet or consuming your condition may be, then you should definitely check this book out. ?It helped me a lot to deal with my problems. The only requirment is that you are commited to change and honest. ?This book contain...

    Ok, to be 100% honest, up until I read this book, I always thought Russell Brand was just a moronic comedian.....this Book proved me more than a little wrong. It is a slap in the face to say the least. Everything Russell talks about in this book, or program, whichever you wish to call ...

    Read the book. This is a great book for the road to recovery. Not a replacement for meetings but this is no different than hearing his experience strength and hope in a meeting. Inspiring and full of wisdom. ...

    Russell has a firm grasp on the 12 steps, a relatable life story and an outlook on life I enjoy hearing. "If you don't choose to work a conscious program, you are being worked by an unconscious program." ...

    started well, fizzled out at the end. I am often interested in social/consumer books about addiction as I work with drug addicts in my role as a pharmacist. Russell Brand is undeniably engaging. I really enjoyed his Revolution book from a couple of years ago. This started stro...

    Great read. I am a fan of Russell Brand. I haven't read any of his books until now. I really like how he is so honest and how he breaks down the steps w/o religion, but with an understanding that there is something at work that is larger than we are. I also bought the audio so I ca...

    The writing in this book was wonderful. I love Russell's way with words. There were times in this book I related so much to what he was saying it was extremely emotive for me - particularly those detailing his his day to day interaction with the world and how that lead him to feel. Tha...

    This was an excellent book on addictions- all types of addictions. Brand is very introspective and observant, a mix of orator, philosopher, sociologist and poet. I so prefer this man to the MTV days Brand, and loved his honesty, insight and humor. ...

    Russell Brand here has put together a 12-step comprehensive and very detailed recovery program for addicts who suffer in their multiple or singular addictions. A proven program derived from his personal experiences, as he describes his approach, experience and results in each of the 12...

    I never thought i?d read a book penned by Russell Brand, and yet here I am. My understanding of Brand has mostly come from the tabloids: I?m familiar with his past dependency on narcotics, his ill-fated marriage to Katy Perry, his Hollywood films. But I hadn?t heard about him in ...

    Wow. A few months ago my mum told me about this podcast she had started listening to called 'Under the Skin' created and hosted by Russell Brand. I was intrigued by the things she told me about it and so started listening and was captivated by the guests he had on, the topics they disc...

    What an amazing and beautiful book. Russell Brand has done an extraordinary good thing for the world. The writing is funny, choppy, scary, elaborate, lush, crude, visceral. Twelve of the chapters correlate to the 12 Steps, and each chapter ends with exercises to help the reader underst...

    **Listened again and upgraded rating from 4 to 5 stars** As a person in recovery who did not use a 12-step program for support, I have always thought that 12-step programs were a little too prescriptive and dogmatic to be of use to me. However, I found Russell Brand?s personal spin ...

    My name is John Naylor. As I write this review I am 600 days sober (I didn't know the exact number before starting this review. It just worked out well.) I applaud anybody who can use a 12 step program to both get and maintain sobriety (note: I will use sober in this review to mean...

    So, Russell Brand basically revised the 12 Steps of AA to include a lot of F-bombs, and it took me a while to get into this book, but by step 5 I was highly engaged in the real struggle that he went through that included being inappropriately touched as a child. Having gone through bou...

    Much of what Brand has to say about addiction comes from hard-earned wisdom. In this book, he takes the 12 steps utilised by many organizations (originated in AA) and rewords them in his own 'colorful' language. His conceptualization of addictions as a continuum that includes substance...

    This was an amazingly enlightening read, or listen, in my case. I loved Russel Brand's narration and thought the book a treasure. Highly recommended! ...

    Excellent book for anyone who needs help with ANY addiction, drugs alcohol shopping sex food, you name an addiction, this book is for you. It's a no nonsense approach to step work but especially those who are not a fan of or shy away from the steps. Russell walks you through the steps ...

    Throughout the entire book, I couldn't stop wishing for everyone I know to read this. I don't think there was anything i didn't know, but it had the things i love from self help books, plus the things i can tolerate from mystical books, and the things i like about new atheism, and s...

    Ok, to be 100% honest, up until I read this book, I always thought Russell Brand was just a moronic comedian.....this Book proved me more than a little wrong. It is a slap in the face to say the least. Everything Russell talks about in this book, or program, whichever you wish to call ...

    Read the book. This is a great book for the road to recovery. Not a replacement for meetings but this is no different than hearing his experience strength and hope in a meeting. Inspiring and full of wisdom. ...

    Russell has a firm grasp on the 12 steps, a relatable life story and an outlook on life I enjoy hearing. "If you don't choose to work a conscious program, you are being worked by an unconscious program." ...

    started well, fizzled out at the end. I am often interested in social/consumer books about addiction as I work with drug addicts in my role as a pharmacist. Russell Brand is undeniably engaging. I really enjoyed his Revolution book from a couple of years ago. This started stro...

    Great read. I am a fan of Russell Brand. I haven't read any of his books until now. I really like how he is so honest and how he breaks down the steps w/o religion, but with an understanding that there is something at work that is larger than we are. I also bought the audio so I ca...

    The writing in this book was wonderful. I love Russell's way with words. There were times in this book I related so much to what he was saying it was extremely emotive for me - particularly those detailing his his day to day interaction with the world and how that lead him to feel. Tha...

    This was an excellent book on addictions- all types of addictions. Brand is very introspective and observant, a mix of orator, philosopher, sociologist and poet. I so prefer this man to the MTV days Brand, and loved his honesty, insight and humor. ...

    Russell Brand here has put together a 12-step comprehensive and very detailed recovery program for addicts who suffer in their multiple or singular addictions. A proven program derived from his personal experiences, as he describes his approach, experience and results in each of the 12...

    I never thought i?d read a book penned by Russell Brand, and yet here I am. My understanding of Brand has mostly come from the tabloids: I?m familiar with his past dependency on narcotics, his ill-fated marriage to Katy Perry, his Hollywood films. But I hadn?t heard about him in ...

    Wow. A few months ago my mum told me about this podcast she had started listening to called 'Under the Skin' created and hosted by Russell Brand. I was intrigued by the things she told me about it and so started listening and was captivated by the guests he had on, the topics they disc...

    What an amazing and beautiful book. Russell Brand has done an extraordinary good thing for the world. The writing is funny, choppy, scary, elaborate, lush, crude, visceral. Twelve of the chapters correlate to the 12 Steps, and each chapter ends with exercises to help the reader underst...

    **Listened again and upgraded rating from 4 to 5 stars** As a person in recovery who did not use a 12-step program for support, I have always thought that 12-step programs were a little too prescriptive and dogmatic to be of use to me. However, I found Russell Brand?s personal spin ...

    My name is John Naylor. As I write this review I am 600 days sober (I didn't know the exact number before starting this review. It just worked out well.) I applaud anybody who can use a 12 step program to both get and maintain sobriety (note: I will use sober in this review to mean...

    So, Russell Brand basically revised the 12 Steps of AA to include a lot of F-bombs, and it took me a while to get into this book, but by step 5 I was highly engaged in the real struggle that he went through that included being inappropriately touched as a child. Having gone through bou...

    Much of what Brand has to say about addiction comes from hard-earned wisdom. In this book, he takes the 12 steps utilised by many organizations (originated in AA) and rewords them in his own 'colorful' language. His conceptualization of addictions as a continuum that includes substance...

    This was an amazingly enlightening read, or listen, in my case. I loved Russel Brand's narration and thought the book a treasure. Highly recommended! ...

    Excellent book for anyone who needs help with ANY addiction, drugs alcohol shopping sex food, you name an addiction, this book is for you. It's a no nonsense approach to step work but especially those who are not a fan of or shy away from the steps. Russell walks you through the steps ...

    This is one of the best books on the 12 steps recovery I have read. ...

    A very pleasant surprise. Puts the 12 Step program into perspective for anyone to apply for their life. ...

    I really wanted to like this book and more then I actually did. I wanted to give this book 3.5 stars. It might be the fact that I actually do like Russell Brand and the message of the behind the book more than I actually liked the book. There are parts of the book that are very good...

    I've never been a huge fan of Russell Brand, but even before reading this I thought it was pretty fair to say he's someone who just might have something to offer on the subject of addiction. Actually, I was surprised by just how disarming his honesty was in the book, the level of bruta...

    There is a little anecdote in the book where Brand is speaking with a counselor, a grueling session that has gone on and detailed the darkest parts of his life and the severity of his addictions. When she stops speaking she looks at him awestruck, and in that little pause, that on a sh...

    Fantastic...I laughed, I cried, I nearly peed myself! Russell takes you on an expedition of self-actualization and wonder. He lays out a convincing argument espousing we are all just experiencing a temporary journey through what Prince would call "this thing called 'life.'" It is an ab...

    3,45/5 I really liked this. It?s obvious that Russell is a very interesting and intelligent person, I was amazed by how beautiful he can write. The book is part personal memoir and part self help, following a 12 step program for getting rid of basically any type of addiction that ...

    If you are even the slightest bit unhappy or dissatisfied with your life and want to make changes but don't know how, I urge you to read this book. It sets out the 12 Steps programme and how you apply it to your life in order for you to realise and recognise the patterns that you conti...

    I really wanted to like this book and more then I actually did. I wanted to give this book 3.5 stars. It might be the fact that I actually do like Russell Brand and the message of the behind the book more than I actually liked the book. There are parts of the book that are very good...

    I've never been a huge fan of Russell Brand, but even before reading this I thought it was pretty fair to say he's someone who just might have something to offer on the subject of addiction. Actually, I was surprised by just how disarming his honesty was in the book, the level of bruta...

    There is a little anecdote in the book where Brand is speaking with a counselor, a grueling session that has gone on and detailed the darkest parts of his life and the severity of his addictions. When she stops speaking she looks at him awestruck, and in that little pause, that on a sh...

    Fantastic...I laughed, I cried, I nearly peed myself! Russell takes you on an expedition of self-actualization and wonder. He lays out a convincing argument espousing we are all just experiencing a temporary journey through what Prince would call "this thing called 'life.'" It is an ab...

    3,45/5 I really liked this. It?s obvious that Russell is a very interesting and intelligent person, I was amazed by how beautiful he can write. The book is part personal memoir and part self help, following a 12 step program for getting rid of basically any type of addiction that ...

    If you are even the slightest bit unhappy or dissatisfied with your life and want to make changes but don't know how, I urge you to read this book. It sets out the 12 Steps programme and how you apply it to your life in order for you to realise and recognise the patterns that you conti...

    Never has the controversial genre of Self Help been graced by a more beautiful, a more eloquent, a more truthful or a more effective addition to its aisles. Russel Brand is a poet, and a very human human being who is very good at understanding other human beings and calling them out. I...

    A very honest, sincere and well-written book with a broad appeal. I read it in a day, so quite an engrossing read too. Those who are easily put off by segues into Brandesque spiritual "claptrap", should not be put off from reading it. He has interpreted the 12-step programme to make it...

    Throughout the entire book, I couldn't stop wishing for everyone I know to read this. I don't think there was anything i didn't know, but it had the things i love from self help books, plus the things i can tolerate from mystical books, and the things i like about new atheism, and s...

    Ok, to be 100% honest, up until I read this book, I always thought Russell Brand was just a moronic comedian.....this Book proved me more than a little wrong. It is a slap in the face to say the least. Everything Russell talks about in this book, or program, whichever you wish to call ...

    What an amazing and beautiful book. Russell Brand has done an extraordinary good thing for the world. The writing is funny, choppy, scary, elaborate, lush, crude, visceral. Twelve of the chapters correlate to the 12 Steps, and each chapter ends with exercises to help the reader underst...

    **Listened again and upgraded rating from 4 to 5 stars** As a person in recovery who did not use a 12-step program for support, I have always thought that 12-step programs were a little too prescriptive and dogmatic to be of use to me. However, I found Russell Brand?s personal spin ...

    So, Russell Brand basically revised the 12 Steps of AA to include a lot of F-bombs, and it took me a while to get into this book, but by step 5 I was highly engaged in the real struggle that he went through that included being inappropriately touched as a child. Having gone through bou...

    Much of what Brand has to say about addiction comes from hard-earned wisdom. In this book, he takes the 12 steps utilised by many organizations (originated in AA) and rewords them in his own 'colorful' language. His conceptualization of addictions as a continuum that includes substance...

    This was an amazingly enlightening read, or listen, in my case. I loved Russel Brand's narration and thought the book a treasure. Highly recommended! ...

    Excellent book for anyone who needs help with ANY addiction, drugs alcohol shopping sex food, you name an addiction, this book is for you. It's a no nonsense approach to step work but especially those who are not a fan of or shy away from the steps. Russell walks you through the steps ...

    This is one of the best books on the 12 steps recovery I have read. ...

    Never has the controversial genre of Self Help been graced by a more beautiful, a more eloquent, a more truthful or a more effective addition to its aisles. Russel Brand is a poet, and a very human human being who is very good at understanding other human beings and calling them out. I...

    A very honest, sincere and well-written book with a broad appeal. I read it in a day, so quite an engrossing read too. Those who are easily put off by segues into Brandesque spiritual "claptrap", should not be put off from reading it. He has interpreted the 12-step programme to make it...

    Throughout the entire book, I couldn't stop wishing for everyone I know to read this. I don't think there was anything i didn't know, but it had the things i love from self help books, plus the things i can tolerate from mystical books, and the things i like about new atheism, and s...

    Ok, to be 100% honest, up until I read this book, I always thought Russell Brand was just a moronic comedian.....this Book proved me more than a little wrong. It is a slap in the face to say the least. Everything Russell talks about in this book, or program, whichever you wish to call ...

    Read the book. This is a great book for the road to recovery. Not a replacement for meetings but this is no different than hearing his experience strength and hope in a meeting. Inspiring and full of wisdom. ...

    Russell has a firm grasp on the 12 steps, a relatable life story and an outlook on life I enjoy hearing. "If you don't choose to work a conscious program, you are being worked by an unconscious program." ...

    started well, fizzled out at the end. I am often interested in social/consumer books about addiction as I work with drug addicts in my role as a pharmacist. Russell Brand is undeniably engaging. I really enjoyed his Revolution book from a couple of years ago. This started stro...

    Great read. I am a fan of Russell Brand. I haven't read any of his books until now. I really like how he is so honest and how he breaks down the steps w/o religion, but with an understanding that there is something at work that is larger than we are. I also bought the audio so I ca...

    I really wanted to like this book and more then I actually did. I wanted to give this book 3.5 stars. It might be the fact that I actually do like Russell Brand and the message of the behind the book more than I actually liked the book. There are parts of the book that are very good...

    I've never been a huge fan of Russell Brand, but even before reading this I thought it was pretty fair to say he's someone who just might have something to offer on the subject of addiction. Actually, I was surprised by just how disarming his honesty was in the book, the level of bruta...

    There is a little anecdote in the book where Brand is speaking with a counselor, a grueling session that has gone on and detailed the darkest parts of his life and the severity of his addictions. When she stops speaking she looks at him awestruck, and in that little pause, that on a sh...
