"Are you fed up with the status quo? Do you ask yourself why 1% of the world owns nearly half the wealth? Are you appalled that in a year of recession, banker's bonuses rose by around 64%? Does it anger you that multi-million dollar corporations pay hardly any tax? Do you trust your government? Always insightful, irreverent but funny, Russell Brand is asking the questions the public wants answered. This is his call to arms. This is Russell Brand's Revolution"--Provided by publisher.

Four stars mostly given for the wonderful concept of the book. Revolution, unity, and breaking free from our isolated shells is a much needed endeavour. Was unique to hear this story told from the pen of a "former" Hollywood celebrity who's seen through the shenanigans (and with use of my new fav British word 'bollocks').

Brand got a bit redundant at times in his mission to provide a more detailed groundwork of what Revolution could look like politically, economically, socially. Even the humour became miscellaneous and gratuitous at times. Unfortunately, the book lacked strength towards its conclusion but I found the beginning and middle to be a fun and inspiring journey.

It's all reminiscent of what it's like to go from being grounded to flying high on the ideals of a new consciousness. One that, as we read in the book and hear from many others, is not hog posh b/s but the real reality we're all missing out on and desperately desire.

If Bernie Sanders and Russell Brand had a baby, it would be this book. Highly recommended, especially if you enjoy the combination of funny and thought-provoking.

What terrific ideas are presented here in this inspirational book. The concepts are offered with examples from experts and draws parallels with Brand's own journey of discovery. (Language warning for those of delicate sensibilities.)

My only gripe is that the reading experience was marred by the lack of a firm editing hand. Incomplete sentences, wandering thoughts, incorrect use of punctuation, etc. made it more difficult to read than it needed to be. Not being pedantic, just saying it could have been more accessible had the publishers taken Brand in hand.

I love this guy! An excellent book to read, published in 2014. Then go read a book first published in 1907, but the author Call of the Wild. Yup, Jack London's greatest book, The Iron Heel. It never ceases to amaze me how he not only explains and explained everything, but it is even more salient today than when he wrote it!
