Amstell the former presenter on T4 and Never Mind The Buzzcocks may have come to your attention on the last while for his vegan film Carnage or his memorable appearance on Adam Buxton's podcast. Some of the experiences he discussed on Buxton's podcast including his experience taking Ayahusca in Peru are recounted in this book, a mixture of diary entries excepts from his stand-up and writing from Amstell expanding on these.
The book is hilarious, thought provoking and honest. The brilliance of Amstell is that even after discussing spiritual enlightenment he still acknowledges how flawed and ultimately human he is never coming across as "more woke than thou" in the way one could say Russell Brand perhaps does.
Highly recommended.
