Product Description


'Candid, funny and moving.' (Sun )

'How in God's name did the publishers ever get him to sit down and write the bloody thing? Because make no mistake - unlike most celebrity biogs, MY BOOKY WOOK has definitely been written by Brand.' (London Lite )

'Part funny, but part hugely disturbing . . .' (Grazia )

'The most talented stand-up comedian to emerge in Britain this decade, Brand combines Eddie Izzard's rare ability to carry a whole crowd along on an audacious flight of comic fancy with the carnal magnetism of the young George Best. Audiences leave a Brand performance not just entertained but actively debauched by his catalogue of erotic misadventure.'

(Daily Telegraph )

'To his expanding CV can now be added a scandalous, libidinous memoir that is better written and more entertaining than any number of the celebrity autobiographies that clog the shelves of bookshops.' (Observer )

'The Russell Brand of MY BOOKY WOOK is surprisingly approachable. The comedian's playful love of language is evident from his occasional lapse into obscure or archaic words, and sits well with his penchant for childishness. . . Inevitably, the main point of interest is Brand's addictions, drugs and sex, about which he writes with unexpected affability.' (Herald )

'335 dismal, masturbatory pagey-wages. ' (Ian Hislop, Have I Got News For You )

'Hliarious, sometimes brilliant, and always indulgenht' (Christopher Goodwin, Sunday Times 20080420)

'rdgfdghfh.' (bob, Independent 20080420)

Book Description

The controversial, unexpurgated, and hilarious life story of the nation's hottest comedian - in his own words.

1.0 out of 5 stars Rubbish 18 Feb 2014
By Elyssa
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Sometimes people write a book just to write a book. I'm fairly sure Russell's life has been fascinating, however this book is simply dumbed down inane babble. Better books out there if you're looking for entertainment.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good but very frank 13 May 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A very frank book about Russell's life, He writes like he talks and leaves nothing to the imagination.
Certainly not for minors or easily embarrassed readers!

1.0 out of 5 stars Booky Wook 23 Dec 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I thought this book was going to be such a good read. I had real good reports on it. The first page was good and after that I could not understand a word he was talking about. Not for me.

5.0 out of 5 stars His Booky-Wook 6 Oct 2009
I've been reading the reviews and to be honest I was shocked. I bought this book a few months ago, when I'd really just began to like his stand up and Ponderland. I wasnt a fan when he was doing BB. But I finished this book in about three days, and can still remember a lot of detail and his little cute ways of writing the worst. I absolutely adored this book, I was crying with laughter and sadness. I do understand that he is self absorbed, but this is what made it so hilarious. The way he speaks is just generally funny, I love how he described heroin and it still made me laugh! The pictures were obviously a bonus. I recommended this book to my girlfriend and she loved it aswell. I still actually quote it to this day - It sticks with you. Its not genius, its not the best book in the world; but its a good laugh. It tells the tale of a young selfish boy growing up in a world where hes not getting enough attention, and has to fight for it. All the stuff about his dad taking him to thailand to have sex with prostitutes, to drama centre and getting hooked on drugs. Its a rollercoaster of humour and emotion, and someone who started off with very little gaining A LOT.
Love it and Recommend it to anyone!

5.0 out of 5 stars Touching use of humour as a defence mechanism 25 Nov 2010
By Nina
I live in Denmark, thus I have never experienced various Russell Brand media dramas that have been. It seems to me like he is a man who has divided up Britain: either you love him passionately or you hate him passionately. Not being a part of this I guess that helped me read this book without prejudices.
I must say I was really moved by his story. Why? He has told his story beautifully, in a vivid language. In this autobiography Russell is having an ironic distance to really horrible events in his life. This ironic distance is what makes the book so good because it really shows how much it has affected him and that makes it extremely personal. I think his defence mechanism is his humour and using humour describing situations that are anything but humorous really gives you an insight into his bruised past. The pages are filled with humour, but the story is full of sorrow.

4.0 out of 5 stars Endearingly honest read 30 Jan 2009
First off, I have to admit Brand is not a man I greatly warm to, particularly after recent disasters, but there are moments in this book where I laughed out loud and it is written with a rather endearing honesty. There's something essentially Byronic about the man, in my opinion. And in some ways the book has made me like him better. But the astonishing thing - and the reason you must consider it as one for your reading list - is that it absolutely has the best last two pages I have ever read in any biography. Or any work of non-fiction indeed. And the utter best last line. It's stunning and it left me (a) in tears and (b) hugely impressed. If Brand can write like that with such piercing clarity and depth, then more please and soon.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not just for fans 9 Mar 2010
My husband bought this book for me as a Xmas present as I'm always raving about Russell but never did I think I would get such an honest insight into his life, it made me laugh alot but cry too, it also helped me to understand why Russell is the person he turned out to be.
As I was laughing so much reading it my skeptical husband decided to read it,hes not a Russell fan but really enjoyed the book and amazingly has been converted and like me felt it was an honest sometimes sad account of Russell's life to date.
It gave me an insight into the mind of someone who takes drugs which I could never have accepted before and also he describes depression in simple terms that many that suffer from depression can relate to.
I say give it a go, you'll love him too!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Quirky, shocking and funny! 12 Jan 2008
By Charlie
I liked Russell before I read this book so was pleased to get it for Christmas. An almost graphically honest account of aspects of his life including his drug addiction and sexual exploits, it was also very funny in places. I was quite shocked by some of the things I read and I seemed to have spent the duration of the book wavering between liking and disliking him. He describes his life in a very abstract manner, sometimes going all serious and then from nowhere almost, bursting forth with his unusual sense of humour.
Reading the book has definately made me think that Russell is probably the only person you can love and hate equally. He is very sympathetic and understanding in places and then the next page he seems to destroy all that by saying something selfish and self absorbed.
You have to give credit to Russell for writing his own autobiography which many don't these days.
I still don't quite know what to make of Russell Brand as a person but as far as the book go's I have given it a semi thumbs up!
