Item Details

My Booky Wook was one of the most revered and successful celebrity autobiographies of all time (not including the Bible or anything by Oprah). The honesty, mayhem, and scandal made it as riveting and fanciful as anything found in fiction.In Booky Wook 2, this award-winning achievement is surpassed as Russell charts his rise from crack-house junky to Hollywood star, indulging in sexual excesses that make Caligula seem like a prudish spinster. On his quest to find true love, Russell encountered thousands of women, often three or four at a time (for efficiency), and his dizzying ambition led to chaos and controversy that could have landed him in prison and left the BBC in ruins.This is the story of what happens when insatiable desire meets limitless opportunity and when a punk from the wrong side of the tracks is given the keys to the palace. This riot of self-indulgence would be rampaging still but for a tossed bottle to the head from one of the world's biggest pop stars.Can true love conquer all? Is it a more powerful force than the raging libido of a professional madman? The answer lies inside.

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.

Not as good as the first one, but I would still read his work again simply for his adeptness with language. Love his metaphors and expansive vocabulary.

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.
