NATIONAL BESTSELLER We all know the system isn't working. Our governments are corrupt and the opposing parties pointlessly similar. Our culture is filled with vacuity and pap, and we are told there's nothing we can do: "It's just the way things are." In this book, Russell Brand hilariously lacerates the straw men and paper tigers of our conformist times and presents, with the help of experts as diverse as Thomas Piketty and George Orwell, a vision for a fairer, sexier society that's fun and inclusive. You have been lied to, told there's no alternative, no choice, and that you don't deserve any better. Brand destroys this illusory facade as amusingly and deftly as he annihilates Morning Joe anchors, Fox News fascists, and BBC stalwarts. This book makes revolution not only possible but inevitable and fun.

Professional reviews

"According to English comedian and activist Russell Brand, our political system is broken, our culture lacks substance, and itÕs time to break out of our apathy and start a revolution to bring about change. BrandÕs fervent call to action is brought to listeners by none other than Brand himself, with a pronounced British accent and frenetic delivery. He often speaks quickly, using different voices and accents for comedic effect. After touching on his own personal history and challenges, he describes the post-revolutionary political climate he envisions. While heÕs certainly full of energy and vigor, his delivery often sounds bombastic rather than enlightening as esoteric words mix with profanity and crude humor.
