After starting and not finishing the past 15 or so books I have downloaded, I was beginning to think my years as an audible member must have run their natural course. This book proved that untrue. After hearing Brand on NPR on New Years day morning, I downloaded the book and binged listened to it in two days.
This is an incredible book. His delivery is vulnerable, funny, sweet, and packed full of the wisdom of the ages. Clearly he is a man who has "done his work." His charming British accent, incredible story telling, poems, and masterful delivery put this book up there with the greats I have ever listened to.
Some people will rage at the political theory he expresses and miss his point all together. There is something in this book for everyone. You know the treadmill of materialism is grinding you to bits. You know capitalism has us on an unsustainable course destined to bankrupt the environment and steal our very souls.
Listen to this book. Sign up for this program. And do your work along with Brand. 5 out of 5 stars.
This is the one and only book review I have written. I have been an Audible member since 2004...20 books a year. That should tell you something about this book...and me I suppose
Thanks Russell Brand.

I confess, I'd read one of Russell Brand's earlier books and abandoned it due to its repetitive focus on sex and drugs... so I didn't have high hopes for this book.
Well, I'm happy to say I was wrong. In Revolution, Brand shares his perspective about the deepening equality gap and other current societal issues -- it is a fascinating book. Despite Brand's somewhat goofy public persona, he's actually a very bright guy who articulates what so many feel / experience in a way that's engaging and accessible. I found Brand's narration style to be very compelling -- he's fired up and after listening to Revolution, you will be too. Unlike his prior books which were more autobiographical, Brand looks at the world around him in Revolution and ponders how we can all improve society and the world we live in. This is an interesting listen and I highly recommend it.
