Russell Brand is a comedian and an addict. He's been addicted to drugs, sex, fame, money and power. Even now as a new father, sixteen years into recovery he still writes about himself in the third person and that can't be healthy. He is the author of five books, including the New York Times bestseller Recovery. He still performs as a comic and is studying for an MA in Religion in Global Politics. He has two cats, two dogs, a wife, two daughters, ten chickens and sixty thousand bees in spite of being vegan curious. He is certain that the material world is an illusion but still keeps licking the walls of the hologram.

"[Brand] shares stories of who he was and how he changed via the help of various mentors . . . [illuminating] his transformation from an angry, disillusioned person to the more well-rounded father and spiritual person he is today."
