In the sequel to Russell's best-selling biography 'My Booky Wook' we follow the now sober but still scandalous, sex-fuelled star on his electrifying rise to international fame. A roller coaster ride through tours, films, stand up and tabloids -- this time, it's personal. Rarely has a sequel delivered on the promise of the original with such literary and comic gusto. In Booky Wook 2: This Time It's Personal, Russell Brand takes off where his international best-seller My Book Wook left off. Brand is sober and, after dedicating his life and compromising his sanity in the pursuit of fame, he has had his first taste of national notoriety. Does fame bring happiness and inner peace? Not exactly, but it does mean a lot of sex. It also ushers in an unforgettable and raucous ride through chat shows, tabloid scandals, and Hollywood, all the while detailing Brand's search for the contentment that fame can't quite grant. Booky Wook 2 is a "celebrity memoir" unlike any you've read before: more clever and inventive than ever, Russell Brand explores the consequences of massive stardom just as he demonstrates the power of language and wit to make sense of it all.

Just when you thought it was safe to go back to the bookstore . . . Booky Wook 2!
As incredible as it may seem, the honesty, the mayhem, the lascivious scandal of Russell Brand’s magnum opus, My Booky Wook, are surpassed by Booky Wook 2! This time it’s personal, as Brand unabashedly charts his rise from crack-house junkie to Hollywood star while indulging in sexual excesses that make Caligula seem like a prudish spinster—encountering thousands of women, often three or four at a time (for efficiency), on his quest to find true love. Here is the riveting story of what happens when insatiable desire meets limitless opportunity and a punk from the wrong side of the tracks is given the keys to the palace. Indeed, Brand’s riot of self-indulgence would be rampaging still were it not for a well-aimed bottle tossed to the head, delivered from the hand of the exquisite Katy Perry, one of the world’s biggest pop stars.
Can true love conquer all? Is it a force more powerful than the raging libido of an insatiable professional madman? The answer lies within . . . Booky Wook 2!About the Author:
