Brand is sober and, after dedicating his life and compromising his sanity in the pursuit of fame, he has had his first taste of national notoriety. Does fame bring happiness and inner peace? Not exactly, but it does mean a lot of sex. Brand charts his rise fromĀ  crack-house junkie to Hollywood star while indulging in sexual excesses that would make Caligula blush. This is what happens when insatiable desire meets limitless opportunity and a punk from the wrong side of the tracks gets the keys to the palace.It also ushers in an unforgettable and raucous ride through chat shows, tabloid scandals and Hollywood, all the while detailing Brand’s search for the contentment that fame can’t quite grant.
