Follows the now sober but still scandalous, sex-fueled star on his electrifying rise to international fame.

HARPERCOLL
Picking up where he left off in My Booky Wook, movie star and comedian Russell Brand details his rapid climb to fame and fortune in a shockingly candid, resolutely funny, and unbelievably electrifying tell-all: Booky Wook 2. Brand’s performances in Arthur, Get Him to the Greek, and Forgetting Sarah Marshall have earned him a place in fans’ hearts; now, with a drop of Chelsea Handler’s Chelsea Chelsea Bang Bang, a dash of Tommy Lee’s Dirt, and a spoonful of Nikki Sixx’s The Heroin Diaries, Brand goes all the way—exposing the mad genius behind the audacious comic we all know (or think we know) and love (or at least, lust).

Definitely not as good as the first one. Skimmed some parts since I thought they were boring. Felt bad reading about the Katy Perry parts knowing that they wouldn't make it.

A difficult book to evaluate. The earlier one started with a chapter entering rehab for sex addicts, then never really mentioned the issue again. This book seems to be all about sex addiction ... or maybe it's about success and sex addiction. Then Katy Perry entered the scene, and I already knew how that had come out.

Meanwhile our boy Russell makes passing references to yoga, vegetarianism, transcendental meditation, and other issues that seem totally at odds with the boorish character he presents. Obviously a lot goes unsaid, and one realizes that he's only really comfortable when he presents his persona, not his real person.

Entertaining in places, but in others there's too many details, and it just becomes uncomfortable.

I didn't really read . Just sort of skimmed through. It just reminded me too much of Olivia Munn's " Suck it Wonder Woman" 10/28/11 @ 4p

Good and funny but not as good as the 1st one.

Comedian and actor's story - a poor kid overwhelmed by success and the gifts it brings - celebrity, fawning fans, drugs and sex. Especially sex.
