    As an additional adjacency to his brilliant self-help tome, Recovery, Russell introduces us to the many different characters in his life that has aided and abetted him (so to speak) throughout his spiritual improvement over the last decade or so. From sages to ex-addicts such as himsel...

    I came to this inspired by Russell Brand's recent podcasts, especially those with Gabor Maté and Fearne Cotton. I respect Russell's openness about his addictions, recovery path, and spiritual challenges. This book builds on that, illustrating how we do better at life if we go through ...

    3.5 rounding up because I just like the guy! Since drug addiction he is constantly working on himself and very introspective, I admire that in him. ...

    My only complaint really was that it felt short (I read it in one sitting). I wish he would have continued on to cover more examples of people he's mentored himself. This book did make me think about the people I'm learning from on pretty much a daily basis, and made me appreciate ever...

    Russell Brand is an icon and he knows it, which makes him often come across in interviews as smug, superior and intolerant. However, this book makes it very clear that Brand is vulnerable, is not a complete arse and is actually trying to be a better person. This felt like a similar jou...

    I didn't read it, rather I listened to it - which is my preferred method when it comes to Russell Brand. He is wordy, which is to be expected. But he is also insightful, self-aware, endearingly flawed and full of fresh perspective. I enjoyed it and will probably give it another listen....

    Surprised by the reviews calling Russell wordy in this book. I found the language efficient and beautifully written. Interesting content. ...

    A very interesting and genuine sounding book but I use genuine with caution now that Brand is moving his podcast to a subscription site and no longer using free options. Sort of takes the shine off what he's got here, which is a great book able to help many people. ...

    Look, lets get this out of the way first - Russell Brand is wordy. He strings out a sentence that could be condensed down into three words, but he does it in such a way that you know his brain has been slow cooking the thoughts for such a time that the meat of the sentence is falling o...

    Brand discusses the importance of mentors both in our lives and being one to others. He begins by suggesting that this book will suggest how to help and be help and understand the process of being a mentor and how to improve it. This is where my expectations laid a path to ruin. If you...

    First half was interesting enough, just going through the idea of mentors, and some of the mentors Russel has in his life... some of whom were pretty cool. But for me the book really warmed up in the back half with few more ideas I found useful and inspiring. ...

    A good book. Don't judge this book by its size, this book. This book contains some condensed in some cases summarised versions of his book Recovery, but it is not the same book. This is part Russell's thank you to people who have mentored him, and mainly the importance of mentoring ...

    The crux is in the appendix, the rest is his way to show gratitude to his mentors. Great part about his writing is there are no hodgy podgy secret recipes to mentor or be a good mentee. Just good plain advice. Three stars because I didnt take out anything novel from it, was h...

    Russell Brand gifts us this book elucidating the many aspects of mentorship, from the perspective of the mentee to the mentor. He does so with the linguistic skill and eloquent brilliance of true genius. Russell's story not only encourages the reader/listener to discover the latent pow...

    Here Russell Brand describes his journey through a selection of 8 mentors that he worked with for self recover, sanity and elevated happiness. He focuses on self-healing and mental stability through the acceptance and support of individual mentors. A very descriptive and detailed ex...

    Russell Brand has a way of writing things in a way that sounds like it is something you'd expect at a Poetry Slam. It is insightful and visual, poignant and eloquent, humorous and heartfelt. Not like Chewbacca in a taxi. You get the idea? However, most of this book is the journey th...

    I sped through this. Funny and poignant. If you like Russell, the way he engages, and enjoy hearing his thoughts on the world and on himself, this is for you. ...

    I loved Recovery by Russel Brand and what a brilliant book to follow it. It is very wordy and he rights exactly as if he is speaking directly to you which I liked. I think we tend to think of people having mentors for specific skills or moments in their life but this book shows that at...

    As a disciple of Russell's "Trews" on YouTube and Under The Skin podcast, it's likely I'm being biased, but it seems every book Russell writes gets better and better; and this is no exception. Absolutely loved it. ...
