"This is a brave and useful book, that I read in one day. It offers real insight into addiction and the stuff that drives it and Russell has done a great service in tackling the classic twelve steps in a non-reverential and totally entertaining kind of way that will help a lot of people. It feels wrong to say it is an addictive read, given the subject, but it really is. Russell doesn't just want to save our souls he wants to entertain us on the way." - Matt Haig, author of How to Stop Time and Reasons to Stay Alive
"Recovery should be read by the world." - Ruby Wax
While the insights are not original, the experience of them is unique and it's Brand's own story that gives the book its energy. For anyone with an abiding interest in Russell Brand. -- The Observer
"A thought-provoking explication of the 12-step program." - The New York Times
"The premise of his programme is that the 12 steps followed by Alcoholics Anonymous can work for anyone. Recovery is the 12 steps, as translated by Russell Brand." - Sunday Times
There is no better lesson to be learnt than by someone who has lived it. And with that in mind, Russell Brand is a man to listen to. Carefully. Beneath the performance he talks sense. A lot of it. -- Stylist
Russell Brand brings an exhaustive and profound understanding of what it means to be felled by addiction and how to stand back up again. It is potentially there in all of us. -- Men's Health
Recovery is a beautifully written book with a message about the human condition that will strike a chord with many, if not all, of us. -- The Express
"Personally it always struck me as a bit unfair that only raging alcoholics and hopeless drug addicts got to practice the 12 steps, given how they provide such an invaluable emotional toolbox - now, thanks to the vision (his critics might say the ego) of Russell Brand, they are available to all." - Suzanne Harrington, Irish Examiner
