Reviews of My Booky Wook:
'Candid, funny and moving.'
'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.'
‘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.’
'Hilarious, sometimes brilliant, and always indulgent.'
From the Back Cover
Just when you thought it was safe to go back to the bookstore . . . Booky Wook 2!
As incredible as it may seem, the honesty, the mayhem, the lascivious scandal of Russell Brand s magnum opus, My Booky Wook, are surpassed by Booky Wook 2! This time it s personal, as Brand unabashedly charts his rise from crack-house junkie to Hollywood star while indulging in sexual excesses that make Caligula seem like a prudish spinster encountering thousands of women, often three or four at a time (for efficiency), on his quest to find true love. Here is the riveting story of what happens when insatiable desire meets limitless opportunity and a punk from the wrong side of the tracks is given the keys to the palace. Indeed, Brand s riot of self-indulgence would be rampaging still were it not for a well-aimed bottle tossed to the head, delivered from the hand of the exquisite Katy Perry, one of the world s biggest pop stars.
Can true love conquer all? Is it a force more powerful than the raging libido of an insatiable professional madman? The answer lies within . . . Booky Wook 2! " --This text refers to the Paperback edition.See all Product Description

I'm also not fond of the brown-nosing he lavishly applies too all named celebrities. Name dropping I can live with, but waxing lyrical on how they're all so bloody kind, gentle and wonderful just sticks in my throat. Not cool.
Last of the downers is that I don't think its as well written as book 1, either. The more ambitious sections of Book 1 were always hit and miss anyway, but some parts had a certain grace to them. Similar sections in Booky Wook 2 feel a bit too forced for me, and read like a considered exercise in verbose, creative prose- which he's actually not as good at as he thinks.Read more ›
I found the last bit about Katy Perry a bit unconvincing as he tries to persuade us he has put his womanising days behind him for this rather plain american girl (let's guess how that one will finish!).
Overall a good read, some funny stories, not quite up to BW1 but, especially for fans of his from the 6 Music days an interesting read. Who knows how his Hollywood adventure will turn out but from Britain's no.1 comedian of 2006-8 this is another entertaining book.
This second book is horrible. I couldn't read past the first few pages. His comments about Kate Moss were enough to put anybody off reading further. He was describing her as if she wasn't human, as if she was some sort of Goddess, better looking and more intelligent than anybody else. And this went on for far too long. I don't know if this was part of him becoming too famous and trying to stay "in" with that crowd, or whether he actually thought all those things about her. Also he seemed to be playing with words just for the sake of it, just to show off. In the first book it was effortless, it looked like he wasn't even trying. But here it comes off as forced.
He's obviously a talented, and very funny and intelligent man. He just got it wrong in my opinion with this book.
