Editorial Reviews

Review

“A thought-provoking explication of the 12-step program run through the Mixmaster of Mr. Brand’s verbal pyrotechnics . . . spellbinding . . . stunning.” The New York Times

“A no B.S. program to conquer all.”
Us Weekly

“Russell Brand brings an exhaustive and profound understanding of what it means to be felled by addiction and how to stand back up again. It is potentially there in all of us.”
Men’s Health

“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.”
InRecovery Magazine

“Transformative . . . entertaining and easy to read . . . eye-popping.”
The Guardian

“Russell Brand is a gift to this world! His ability to translate how to transform your life using modern language and humor is an invaluable resource for a new generation. This book is a must read!”
―Tony Robbins, New York Times bestselling author of Unshakable: Your Financial Freedom Playbook and Money: Master the Game

“This is a brave and useful book, that I read in one day. It offers real insight into addiction and the stuff that drives it and Russell has done a great service in tackling the classic twelve steps in a non-reverential and totally entertaining kind of way that will help a lot of people. It feels wrong to say it is an addictive read, given the subject, but it really is. Russell doesn’t just want to save our souls he wants to entertain us on the way.”
―Matt Haig, author of How to Stop Time and Reasons to Stay Alive

Recovery should be read by the world.” ―Ruby Wax, author of Sane New World

“The premise of his program is that the 12 steps followed by Alcoholics Anonymous can work for anyone. Recovery is the 12 steps, as translated by Russell Brand.”
Sunday Times (UK)

“While the insights are not original, the experience of them is unique and it's Brand's own story that gives the book its energy. For anyone with an abiding interest in Russell Brand.”
The Observer (UK)

“Personally it always struck me as a bit unfair that only raging alcoholics and hopeless drug addicts got to practice the 12 steps, given how they provide such an invaluable emotional toolbox?now, thanks to the vision (his critics might say the ego) of Russell Brand, they are available to all.”
―Suzanne Harrington, Irish Examiner

“There is no better lesson to be learnt than by someone who has lived it. And with that in mind, Russell Brand is a man to listen to. Carefully. Beneath the performance he talks sense. A lot of it.”
Stylist (UK)

“One of his most endearing qualities is his emotional honesty―his openness about his flaws and ignorance, and his confidence despite them.”
―CALM (UK)

About the Author

Russell Brand is a comedian and an addict. He's been addicted to drugs, sex, fame, money and power. Even now as a father, more than fifteen years into recovery he still writes about himself in the third person and that can't be healthy. He is the author of several 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. --This text refers to the audioCD edition.
