This reflected version of myself, wet, shaking, rumpled, slightly stooped, and pinched, would be alarming if it were not for the self-satisfied expression pasted across the face, I would ask the obvious question, 'What are you smiling about?' - but I already know the answer ...it just gets better from here.'

ISBN: 178089306X

Russell Brand wants you to join the revolution. 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 an... View more info

Life by Misadventure is an extraordinarily candid portrait of the man known as The Voice, the man that some choose to hate, but many more love, if not idolise. With a lavish selection of photographs, many from Law's personal collection, and also containing extracts ranging from the hilarious to the tragic from Law's radio programme, Life by Misadventure is compelling reading.
