Description :  <b>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</b><br /><br /><i>“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.” </i>—<i>Russell Brand</i><br /><br />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 addiction—from 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 running—into the wrong job, the wrong life, the wrong person’s arms?"<br /><br />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 yogi—and while he’s worked on this material as part of his comedy and previous bestsellers, he’s never before shared the tools that <i>really </i>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.

Price :  $13.99
Release Date :  2014-10-14
Description :  <b>NATIONAL BESTSELLER<br /></b><br />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.”<br /> &#xa0;<br /> In this book, Russell Brand hilariously lacerates the straw men and paper tigers of our conformist times and presents, with the help of experts as diverse as Thomas Piketty and George Orwell, a vision for a fairer, sexier society that’s fun and inclusive.<br /> &#xa0;<br /> You have been lied to, told there’s no alternative, no choice, and that you don’t deserve any better. Brand destroys this illusory facade as amusingly and deftly as he annihilates <i>Morning Joe</i> anchors, Fox News fascists, and BBC stalwarts.<br /> &#xa0;<br /> This book makes revolution not only possible but inevitable and fun.

7 The Pied Piper of Hamelin

Genre :  Fiction & Literature  Books  Classics 
Price :  $10.99
Release Date :  2014-11-11
Description :  With this first book in Russell Brand’s Trickster Tales series, the famed comedian, actor, and bestselling author delivers a hilarious retelling of an old fairytale favorite that will appeal to adults and children alike.<br /><br /><i>Once upon a time, long ago, in a time that seemed, to those present, exactly like now except their teeth weren’t so clean and more things were wooden, there was a town called Hamelin. The people of Hamelin were a pompous bunch who loved themselves and their town so much that if it were possible they would have spent all day zipped up in a space suit smelling their own farts. But space suits hadn’t been invented yet so they couldn’t.</i><br /><br /><i>Then one day without warning a gang of rats bowled into the town and began causing a right rumpus…</i><br /><br />So begins Russell Brand’s wildly funny and surprisingly wise retelling of the classic tale <i>The Pied Piper of Hamelin</i>. Whether you’re a kid or a grown-up kid, you’ll be chuckling the whole way through this zany story that bypasses Brand’s more adult humor for the outrageous, the madcap, and the just plain silly.<br /><br />Maybe you’ve heard about the Pied Piper before, with his strange music and those pompous townspeople and pesky rats. Or maybe you haven’t. But one thing is for sure: you’ve never heard it quite like this.

8 Articles of Faith

Genre :  Humor  Books  Nonfiction  Sports & Outdoors 
Price :  $2.99
Release Date :  2008-10-15
Description :  This collection of Russell Brand's columns for The Guardian not only follows the drama and tumult of the domestic and international football season but also a season in the life of one of our most celebrated comic talents.<br /><br />Brand chronicles events both on and off the pitch as he travels between Upton Park and Hollywood. In his literary riffings, football legends and newfound heroes brush shoulders with a pantheon of cultural icons. Matches are won and lost, Brand's faith in his beloved West Ham tested, while the palette of company he keeps stretches from Morrissey to Gallagher to Gascoigne and back again.<br /><br />Managerial manoeuvres at Wigan are discussed in reference to Joe Orton and the mysteries of the souks. The departure of Mourinho sparks reminisces of the shapely arse of a previous girlfriend. Love blossoms in the unlikely form of Paolo DiCanio. Arsenal's fluidity and purpose brings to mind yogic coitus of Sting and Trudie Styler. And the fate of his beloved West Ham is seen in parallel with the workings of his legendary libido.<br /><br />'On what little things does happiness depend' he quotes Oscar Wilde - in football as in life.<br /><br />Reviews<br /><br />His writing is articulate and original.'<br />'It's cheeky stuff, but beautifully rounded.'<br />Daily Echo Bournemouth<br /><br />'Brand's columns on football are an acquired taste - and if you have acquired it, they are wonderful. They are gloriously freewheeling, eccentic, unrestrained; and above all, they are original. You will not hear another voice like Brand's in the sports pages.'<br />Scotland on Sunday<br /><br />'Erudite and perceptive on fandom, the media and the beautiful game, it's undeniably original and entertaining sports writing'.<br />The Big Issue<br /><br />Four-star review in Q: ‘If you’re a fan of both football and the Dickensian dandy, this is a great and consistently funny read.’<br /><br />‘I would definitely recommend this as a gift for a man this Christmas'.<br />Glamour<br /><br />'Even if you can read most of the pieces online, there's still something comforting about having them in a form you can read on the toilet.'<br />Irish Sunday Independent<br /><br />About the author<br /><br />Russell Brand is a comedian, journalist, TV and radio presenter and actor. He has won numerous awards including Time Out's Comedian of the Year, Best Newcomer at the British Comedy Awards, Best TV Performer at the Broadcasting Press Guild Awards, Most Stylish Man at GQ's Men of the Year Awards.

9 How Soon is Now

Author : Daniel Pinchbeck, Sting & Russell Brand
Genre :  Spirituality  Books  Health, Mind & Body  Politics & Current Events  Nonfiction  Social Science 
Price :  $10.99
Release Date :  2017-02-21
Description :  We are on the brink of an ecological mega-crisis threatening the future of life on earth and our actions over the next few years may well determine the destiny of our descendants. Between a manifesto and a tactical plan of action,&#xa0;<i>How Soon is Now?</i>&#xa0;by radical futurist and philosopher Daniel Pinchbeck outlines a vision for a mass social movement that will address this crisis.<br /><br />Drawing on a huge range of resources and references Daniel Pinchbeck presents a compelling argument for the need for change on a global basis – it is only when we see ourselves as one planetary tribe that this change can occur. The central thesis is that humanity has self-willed the ecological crisis in order to bring about the necessary conditions for transcendence of our current state of being, by undergoing an initiatory ordeal on a planetary scale. <br /><br />This collective ordeal is necessary for us to evolve from one state of being – our current level of consciousness – to the next. By passing through this initiation we realize ourselves as one unified being, a planetary super-organism in a symbiotic relationship with the Earth's ecology and the entire web of life. Covering everything from energy and agriculture, to culture, politics, media and ideology, Pinchbeck's book is ultimately about the nature of the human soul and the future of our current world. He calls for an intentional and consciously designed metamorphosis of our current systems, which transform capitalist and exclusive structures into participatory, democratic, and inclusive ones, based on an integration of Eastern metaphysics, social ecology, and radical political thought. "<i>How Soon is Now?</i>&#xa0;gives us the context we need to understand the chaos and turbulence of our times." – Sting

Release Date :  2015-04-07
Description :  Den oefterhärmliga komikern Russell Brand vill att du ansluter dig till revolutionen. Har du, precis som han, fått nog av hur världen ser ut och fungerar? Frågar du dig själv varför en procent av världens befolkning äger nästan hälften av dess tillgångar? Upprörs du av att bankernas bonusar nådde rekordnivåer under ett år med extrem lågkonjunktur? Blir du arg av det faktum att företag som omsätter miljarder knappt betalar någon skatt? Har du, ärligt talat, förtroende för de folkvalda? Insiktsfullt, respektlöst och med mycket humor tar Russell Brand upp frågorna som många vill ha svar på. I denna ögonöppnande och underhållande bok tar sig Russel Brand an ämnen som ekologi, ojämlikhet, upplopp, finansiell härdsmälta och den totala bristen på tilltro till politiker. Med lika delar humor och passion uppmanar han sina läsare att skaka av sig apatin och börja ifrågasätta det rådande systemet. Det här är hans stridsrop. Det här är Russell Brands revolution. ”Fakta, humor och en påminnelse om att det är vi själva som har skapat en ojämlik värld – och det vi själva har skapat kan vi också omskapa.” Jeanette Winterson, The Guardian Russel Brand är komiker, skådespelare, programledare och författare, född 1975. Detta är hans fjärde bok. Han har medverkat i ett flertal Hollywood-filmer och hans självbiografi My Booky Wook var en storsäljare i Storbritannien och finns även översatt till svenska. Hans senaste stand up-show, The Messiah Complex, hyllades av svenska kritiker när han uppträdde på ett utsålt Cirkus våren 2014.

Price :  $23.99
Release Date :  2015-04-14
Description :  Letzte Chance auf Weltrettung!<br /><br />Unser gegenwärtiges System dient dazu, den Reichtum einer kleinen Elite aufzublähen, während der Rest der Menschheit kleingehalten und unser Planet zerstört wird. Jeder weiß das, aber keiner tut etwas dagegen. Der ganze Kyoto-Kram – reduzieren wir den CO 2-Ausstoß um den Wert x bis zum Jahr y – ist jedenfalls nichts weiter als gequirlte Scheiße, meint Russell Brand. Eine bloße Geste, eine Alibiveranstaltung. In etwa so wie der Salat, den sie bei McDonald’s anbieten. Um die Erde wirklich zu retten, muss das System grundlegend verändert werden. Wir müssen radikal umdenken, ja, wir brauchen eine Revolution. Und zwar jetzt gleich!

12 Revolucija

Author : Russell Brand
Genre :  Politics & Current Events  Books 
Price :  $11.99
Release Date :  2015-08-13
Description :  Priročnik za spremembo svetovnega reda - revolucija s to knjigo ne postane le mogoča, pač pa tudi neizogibna in zabavna.<br /><br /> Russell Brand je sicer zvezdnik. Je bogat. Je ekscentrik. Je nekdanji odvisnik. Je narcis. Je burkaš. Ničesar ne zanika.&#xa0;<br /> In je hkrati tudi glasnik nekega novega sveta, v katerem ni prostora za neenakosti in nepravičnost. Nazorne primere krutosti in absurdnosti obstoječega sistema naveže na lastno izkušnjo, jih začini s pobalinskim humorjem in bolečo iskrenostjo in zato kot govornik neverjetno prepriča.&#xa0;<br /> Ima karizmo in energijo, za kateri se zdi, da se napajata iz samih sebe. Brand v tem delu naslavlja tisto, kar vsi nekje v sebi vemo. Na primer, da sistem ne deluje. Naše vlade so skorumpirane in opozicijske stranke nesmiselno podobne. Naša kultura je polna topoumnosti in šunda, vse, kar slišimo, pa je, da nič ne moremo – »tako pač je«.<br /> V knjigi duhovito opravi s slaboumnimi argumenti in namišljenimi sovražniki našega konformističnega časa in s pomočjo tako različnih strokovnjakov, kot sta Thomas Piketty in George Orwell, predstavi vizijo bolj poštene in bolj seksi družbe, ki je zabavna in nikogar ne izključuje.<br /><br /> Russell Brand (1975) je britanski komik, igralec in politični aktivist. Najbolj znan je po svojih živih nastopih, pa tudi po spletni oddaji The Trews: True News with Russell Brand.
