Russell Brand grew up in Essex . His father left when he was three months old, he was bulimic at 12 and left school at 16 to study at the Italia Conti stage school. There, he began drinking heavily and taking drugs. He regularly visited prostitutes in Soho, began cutting himself, took drugs on stage during his stand-up shows, and even set himself on fire while on crack cocaine. He has been arrested 11 times and fired from 3 different jobs -- including from XFM and MTV -- and he claims to have slept with over 2,000 women. In 2003 Russell was told that he would be in prison, in a metal hospital or dead within six months unless he went in to rehab. He has now been clean for three years. In 2006 his presenting career took off, and he hosted the NME awards as well as his own MTV show, 1 Leicester Square, plus Big Brother's Big Mouth on Channel 4. His UK stand-up tour was sold out and his BBC Radio 6 show became a cult phenomenon, the second most popular podcast of the year after Ricky Gervais. He was awarded Time Out's Stand Up Comedian of the Year and won Best Newcomer at the British Comedy Awards.In 2007 Russell hosted both the Brit Awards and Comic Relief, and continued to front Big Brother's Big Mouth.His BBC2 radio podcast became the UK's most popular. Russell writes a weekly football column in the Guardian and is the patron of Focus 12, a charity helping people with alcohol and substance misuse.

This is a fairly interesting and funny account from childhood up to the beginnings of fame. There are plenty of references to drugs and his dinkle, and the strange combination of uncommon words and dubious grammar that Brand seems to love. It's hard to say without knowing the man, but it seems as if he hasn't avoided any of the darker areas of his life and personality. Still, at least he achieved the fame he so obviously craved.

 JUST FAB!

This book was the best book i have read in ages! I had kept umming and ahhing about it, then was so glad when i finally bought it! I was never a really big fan of russels, but this book was so open and honest, funny and witty. I now love him!! The book is just "him" down to a t! He write just like he talks. It had me laughing one minute and touched the next! An excellent read! I would recommend it to anyone and everyone! And for £2.99 u cant go wrong! Bargain! You won't be disappointed!!!!!

Such a funny book.
At times I had to put it down because I had tears in my eyes from some of the random observations he makes.
Really nice story and fairly well written.
If you like Russel Brand at all, you will love this book
