Publisher's Summary

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."
In this audiobook, 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.
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 Morning Joe anchors, Fox News fascists, and BBC stalwarts.
This audiobook makes revolution not only possible but inevitable and fun.

Absolutely Fabulous

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 EVOL this book

Russell Brand is an intriguing person who has written a book that's both entertaining and thought provoking.

This book is a joy to listen to while at the same time makes you think and wonder about the way the world works. More importantly he proposes some very powerful ideas and concepts for a better and fairer society. It's easy to disagree on certain points but a lot of this really makes sense.

There is some repetition that can get a bit annoying but he does get his point across. It may not be enough to actually start a world wide revolution but is is quite revolutionary to me personally.
