Synopsis

Revolution by Russell Brand

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 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.

Reviews

'A delight to read ... Revolution is a text that will help politicise a generation.' Independent

'Revolution is funny, full of charm, and engaging.' Owen Jones Guardian

'Brand puts forward a logical and witty argument ... in a shifting world where political disillusionment is the norm, Brand offers a hopeful handbook of new ways of thinking.' -- Twiggy Garcia Guardian

'A compelling and authentic voice ... Brand writes and speaks with verve, words flowing effotlessly and musically ... refreshingly distinctive in his analysis of what is wrong about the way modern Britain is run.' Independent

'Facts, fun and a reminder that inequality is manmade and what we make we can unmake.' Jeanette Winterson
