Russell Brand wants YOU to join the revolution. We all know the system isn't working. Our governments are corrupt and the opposing parties pointlessly similar. Our culture is filled with vacuity and pap, and we are told there's nothing we can do - "it's just the way things are".
This is the best book for you revolutionaries

Important, Entertaining, Verbose
Russell Brand manages to be both humble and egotistical, and both cynical and optimistic in this performance of his book (with bits pinched from various others, like "Chomkers"). I think hearing him read this is the best way to consume it first time around. (Now I want a paper copy so I can fill it with post-it flags and write in the margins and lend it to friends.)
I want to recommend it to everyone. But be prepared to deal with the ADHD style of "Mr Brand", with super-long sentences, multisyllabic verbosity and interruptions for (often edifying and sometimes simply indulgent anecdotes or musings).
Part autobiography, part documentary, part manifesto.
Refreshingly, this book doesn't just describe the problems of the world today, it's got some idea about how to solve them and most importantly, describes how to get there.
I think he's really onto something. See what you think.
