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.

Brand reads his own book, ending each chapter with a flowing poetic stream of consciousness. Brought to mind "The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock" by T. S. Elliot being read aloud, as all poetry must be. Brand is a talented voice performer, whether you agree with him or not, the listening is mesmerizing.
