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.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

Revolution is funny, full of charm, and engaging.” Guardian (London)
“A delight to read…Revolution is a text that will help politicize a generation.” Independent (London)
“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.” Guardian (UK)
“A compelling and authentic voice…Brand writes and speaks with verve, words flowing effortlessly and musically…refreshingly distinctive in his analysis of what is wrong about the way modern Britain is run.” Independent (London), praise for the author
“Facts, fun, and a reminder that inequality is manmade and what we make we can unmake.” Jeanette Winterson, author of the Whitbread Prize-winning Oranges Are Not the Only Fruit
“Brand’s fervent call to action is brought to listeners by none other than Brand himself, with a pronounced British accent and frenetic delivery. He often speaks quickly, using different voices and accents for comedic effect. After touching on his own personal history and challenges, he describes the post-revolutionary political climate he envisions…[with a delivery] full of energy and vigor.” AudioFile
