Booky Wook 2: This Time It's Personal

The enfant terrible of comedy, Russell Brand is to outrage as a duck is to water — it's simply the environment in which he operates. But for all the scandal that has surrounded the maverick comic's iconoclastic exploits, mostly he's just outrageously funny. And that's exactly what comes across in his second autobiographical outing, affectionately dubbed Booky Wook 2. Just as he does with everything else he touches, Brand turns the concept of the celebrity tell-all book on its ear, even as he takes us through the dizzying kaleidoscope of sex, fame, controversy, and comedy that has become his everyday existence. Lovers of irreverent biography will embrace Brand's wild world as warmly as his fervent fans.
