    A fantastic read about the absolute Ibiza legend all time party animal I d heard stories somehow knew that Brandon was a nutta but I didn t realise to what extent He really is lucky to still be walking among us I couldn t put this book down because it just hit you with one mental tale after another.So glad he sorted himself out in the end went on to use his experiences for the greater good, he seems like a one off top bloke.
