Description

In the sequel to Russell's best-selling biography 'My Booky Wook' we follow the now sober but still scandalous, sex-fuelled star on his electrifying rise to international fame. A roller coaster ride through tours, films, stand up and tabloids – this time, it's personal.

Rarely has a sequel delivered on the promise of the original with such literary and comic gusto. In Booky Wook 2: This Time It's Personal, Russell Brand takes off where his international best-seller My Book Wook left off. Brand is sober and, after dedicating his life and compromising his sanity in the pursuit of fame, he has had his first taste of national notoriety. Does fame bring happiness and inner peace? Not exactly, but it does mean a lot of sex. It also ushers in an unforgettable and raucous ride through chat shows, tabloid scandals, and Hollywood, all the while detailing Brand's search for the contentment that fame can't quite grant. Booky Wook 2 is a "celebrity memoir" unlike any you've read before: more clever and inventive than ever, Russell Brand explores the consequences of massive stardom just as he demonstrates the power of language and wit to make sense of it all.

Reviews of My Booky Wook:

'Candid, funny and moving.'
Sun

'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.'
London Lite

‘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.’
Daily Telegraph

'Hilarious, sometimes brilliant, and always indulgent.'
Sunday Times

  • Good sequel

    Contrary to what some others have said before me, I felt this was a seamless sequel to Booky Wook 1 - the material is in no way inferior in quality. Russell's life is different in this book for sure - clean and successful, so perhaps less exciting for readers out for drama and suffering, which was more abundant in Part 1. What I really like about both books is how you get to know a self-confessed prat and volatile narcissist, only to learn that he is also a sweet, well-meaning dude inside. So... Yes he is both sides at the same time - an embodiment of cognitive dissonance which, if we are honest with ourselves, characterises all of us. Read this book and find out about yourself in an entertaining, and occasionally hilarious way. He's not Dostoevsky, but he can make you think.
  • Very funny and well written

    If you're a fan of Russell Brand then this is a great book, but it's nothing compared to the first book. Written in a distinctive and simple tone the stories to conveyed are told well and hilarious throughout, albeit not always relevant or the most interesting. Worth a read but don't expect the same if you've read the first.
  • Pretty good

    Not as good as Booky Wooky 1,but still a good read. A very intelligent guy who deserves the fame he clearly desired.
  • Pricing issues

    I totally refuse to pay more for an ebook than a physical copy. Who on earth decides the prices for these? Why would an electronic copy cost more than the real book?
  • Pricey
