Publisher's Summary

This is the age of addiction, a condition so epidemic, so all-encompassing and ubiquitous, that unless you are fortunate enough to be an extreme case, you probably don't know that you have it. What unhealthy habits and attachments are holding your life together? Are you unconsciously dependent on food? Bad relationships? A job that doesn't fulfill you? Numb, constant perusal of your phone, looking for what? My qualification for writing this book is not that I am better than you, it's that I am worse. I am an addict, addicted to drugs, alcohol, sex, money, love and fame.
The program in Recovery has given Russell Brand freedom from all addictions, and it will do the same for you.
This system offers nothing less than liberation from self-centredness, a new perspective, freedom from the illusion of suffering for anyone who is willing to take the necessary steps.

thank you

Recovery has been a very honest and relatable look at the 12 step program. I have heard of the steps before but it always seemed so grand and high minded that I believed it was to morally unattainable for this sinner. But after this book, it seems well worth another go. thank you.

Great book

I liked the links with existentialism. A very honest account of your experience, very inspiring.

Everyone should read this book

This book was heartbreaking, uplifting and inspiring at the same time. I'd been looking forward to its release and it didn't disappoint. Although I wouldn't consider myself an additct in the obvious junkie/alcoholic way, I've always felt that something was missing. Russell makes you consider how you live your life and your drives in ways I haven't heard before, even though I've read a number of self help/yoga/meditation books. I don't think he gets the credit he's due for trying to change people's life for the better. I'm glad he's found happiness with his new wife as well.

Narration added nuance that may be missed in reading the book.

Are you a bit F*cked?

Well if so then this book is for you. Russell breaks down the 12 step program addicts use into simple terms everyone can understand. Russell then takes you through how to implement them into your life to free yourself from any form of addiction.

I loved Russell's last book and even though I already meditate and had solved a lot of my personal issues I still found this book helpful. Most of us have probably had nothing to do with a the 12 steps and Russell demystifies a lot of the religious mumbo-jumbo associated with them.

Whether you're a drug addict, social media addict, use movies and TV to escape reality a little too often this book will help you to recognise and overcome these addictions.

Keep the books coming, Russell, can't wait to see what you write next.

Loved it

Russell Brand is authentic and vulnerable in a way only he can be giving others permission to be authentic and vulnerable themselves. I expect this book will be a powerful tool for positive change in the lives of many. Well done
