Mentors: How to Help and be Helped | Russell Brand
6 posts | 8 read | 1 reading | 1 to read
Could happiness lie in helping others and being open to accepting help yourself? Mentors - the follow up to Sunday Times number one 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.

Such a good book. Russell Brand gives some great advice about the benefits of both having mentors in your life and also in being a mentor to others. Told in his expectedly wordy manner, its both an inspiring and heartfelt read. Russell writes from his own experiences and growth with honesty and his insightfulness. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐#russellbrand #mentors #tea_sipping_bookworm #bookstagram #bookqueen #greatreads #amazon#kindle #litsy #goodreads

I love Russell Brand and everything he says. He makes so much sense to me. I relate to a lot of what he has to say. This book is kind of an extension of Recovery - he writes about the people that helped him along the way, through and out of addiction and what it means to be mentored and to be a mentor. He clearly loves words and language as this is pretty wordy, but in a good way. A short, interesting listen. ⭐️⭐️⭐️ #relatedtoapodcast #booked2019
