    Description

    Brought to you by Penguin.

    One of the most dynamic and globally recognised entertainment forces of our time opens up fully about his life, in a brave and inspiring book that traces his learning curve to a place where outer success, inner happiness and human connection are aligned. Along the way, Will tells the story in full of one of the most amazing rides through the worlds of music and film that anyone has ever had.

    Will Smith's transformation from a fearful child in a tense West Philadelphia home to one of the biggest pop stars of his era and then one of the biggest movie stars in Hollywood history, with a string of box office successes that will likely never be broken, is an epic tale of inner transformation and outer triumph, and Will tells it astonishingly well. But it's only half the story. 

    Will Smith thought, with good reason, that he had won at life: not only was his own success unparalleled, his whole family was at the pinnacle of the entertainment world. Only they didn't see it that way: they felt more like star performers in his circus, a seven-days-a-week job they hadn't signed up for. It turned out Will Smith's education wasn't nearly over. 

    This memoir is the product of a profound journey of self-knowledge, a reckoning with all that your will can get you and all that it can leave behind. Written with the help of Mark Manson, author of the multimillion-copy best seller The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck, Will is the story of how one exceptional man mastered his own emotions, written in a way that can help everyone else do the same. Few of us will know the pressure of performing on the world's biggest stages for the highest of stakes, but we can all understand that the fuel that works for one stage of our journey might have to be changed if we want to make it all the way home. The combination of genuine wisdom of universal value and a life story that is preposterously entertaining, even astonishing, puts Will the book, like its author, in a category by itself.

    Exceptional

    I loved the realisation of how he could not describe his emotions and how he learnt to overcome his fears and become such a fantastic example to follow - Marina

    Fun and entertaining. Until it isn't

    If you are going to consume this book, then getting the audio book is absolutely the only way. Will Smith is an excellent narrator, and along with the music and the added effects, he really brings his story to life.

    One of the first things Will Smith tells us about himself is how he tells a story. How, when he shares an experience with the family, they will turn to someone who is part of the story to provide the real, unembellished version. His tells us that his imagination adds details that don't necessarily change the gist of the incident, but makes it more fun and entertaining... and this can be a bit distracting at times. There are a couple of stories where I felt that the people's reactions and dialogue implausible.

    The whole book was great, until it wasn't. His recounting of his childhood, early fame, movie career is not only interesting, but so nostalgic. My life seems to be punctuated with Will Smith's artistic creations. From his early music to his last movie, I have enjoyed it all. But then he goes into a self-indulgent spiral. It's like a family member who has started going for counseling and can't stop talking about their new perception of their life, their childhood, every relationship. It goes on and on and on, like he is convincing himself that he is on good path. The book suffers for it. I found myself getting impatient with the book, just wanting it to be over. The last few chapters were for him, and not for his fans.

    So entertaining and thoughtful

    Will storytelling and personality comes through and through. I laughed, got nostalgic, got teary eyes, got hyped with the music samples and laughed some more. So much attention to detail in this audiobook production even the final credits are 100% Will Smith style. Super recommended!

    Er ist ehrlich und hat Humor

    ich finde das in diesem Buch so viele wertvolle Lebensansichten sind... So so viele "lesson", die uns das Leben lehrt. Lehreinheiten, die man nur durch Erfahrung wirklich verstehen kann und darum ist es auch so schwer zu leben - weil man so viele Erfahrungen erst machen muss.
    Ich kann ihn gut zuhören und ich kann einiges nachvollziehen aber vieles muss ich erst selbst für mich entdecken. Auch in diesen Punkten ist das Buch eine Berreicherung wie ein Selbsthilfebuch denn Will gibt einige seiner Wege zur Selbsterkenntnis Preis. natürlich hier und da gewürzt mit den typischen Humor von ihm.

    Außerdem finde ich es sehr wichtig, dass hier und da seine tiefen inneren Neigungen veröffentlicht- egal wie negativ sie sind - das zeigt seine Menschlichkeit. Es zeigt, dass er auch gegen seinen inneren Schweinehund kämpfen muss, dass auch er gegen sich selbst antreten muss und natürlich, dass auch er sterblich ist und über seine Vermächtnisse nachdenkt. nobody is perfect. auf der Held meiner Kindheit nicht. das ist realistisch gehalten.

    Alles in allem eine gelungene Biografie. voller Hilfestellungen, Ermutigungen und Einsichten.

    vbrick by brick" von Anfang bis Ende gebaut.

    A MUST!!!

    Please excuse the aggressive title but I don't know how to put it differently.
    Will Smith and Mark Manson team up to make this book inspiring and simply awesome.
    Before listening, I was afraid that this book might be another self-worshipping marketing product of a celebrity but the opposite is true. I'm still struck by Will Smith's honesty.

    Good book

    Unbelievable story. So unbelievable, in fact, that it was almost easy to miss the main message. But behind every success is a person, and they have their own demons, their own definitions of success and happiness. And of course the narration by Will Smith himself adds that perk of feeling like you're actually in a conversation with him camping somewhere in the deep of the night by the fire.
