"British comic Russell Brand narrates this powerful combined memoir and personal growth lesson as if he were performing a one-man play... this audiobook reveals Brand's startling insights about how we human beings can make a lot of serious mistakes but somehow keep the faith about our potential for healing, love, and honesty in all of our affairs." -- AudioFile Magazine, Earphones Award Winner This program is read by the author. Russell Brand explores the idea of mentoring and shares what he's learned from the guidance of his own helpers, heroes and mentors. Could happiness lie in helping others and being open to accepting help yourself? Mentors – the follow up to the New York Times bestseller Recovery – describes the benefits of seeking and offering help. "I have mentors in every area of my life, as a comic, a dad, a recovering drug addict, a spiritual being and as a man who believes that we, as individuals and the great globe itself, are works in progress and that through a chain of mentorship we can improve individually and globally, together . . . One of the unexpected advantages my drug addiction granted is that the process of recovery that I practise includes a mentorship tradition. "I will encourage you to find mentors of your own and explain how you may better use the ones you already have. Furthermore, I will tell you about my experiences mentoring others and how invaluable that has been on my ongoing journey to self-acceptance and how it has helped me to transform from a bewildered and volatile vagabond to a (mostly) present and (usually) focussed husband and father."—Russell Brand Mentors: How to Help and Be Helped describes the impact that a series of significant people have had on the author – from the wayward youths he tried to emulate growing up in Essex, through the first ex-junkie sage, to the people he turns to today to help him be a better father. It explores how we all – consciously and unconsciously – choose guides, mentors and heroes throughout our lives and examines the new perspectives they can bring.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

"[A] compact book with a huge heart…[Mentors] is self-consciously a hero’s journey, from lost youth to mentor and father…[with] many touching personal confessions.” The Guardian (London)
“British comic Russell Brand narrates this powerful combined memoir and personal growth lesson as if he were performing a one-man play. And yet, changing his intensity to emphasize an observation or his pacing to share a quick aside, he sounds totally spontaneous and even intimate as he describes what he’s learned about getting help from a mentor and serving as one. This is raw, poetic, and vulnerable writing…Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.” AudioFile
"[illuminates] his transformation from an angry, disillusioned person to the more well-rounded father and spiritual person he is today.” Kirkus Reviews
