Publisher Description

One of the most dynamic and globally recognized 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 West Philadelphia kid to one of the biggest rap stars of his era, and then one of the biggest movie stars in Hollywood history, is an epic tale—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 multi-million-copy bestseller The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck, Will is the story of how one person 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.

Best Audiobook EVER!

I’m not usually one to write reviews but I was compelled to do so! Because of Will Smith’s voice acting ability and the compelling story he tells, WILL is the best audio book I’ve ever experienced. There is no other way to to experience his story… best audio book I’ve ever listened to!

Ups downs and all arounds. His story and life were so much more than people realize from the tv/movies/music! Fan for life

Can’t recommend this book any longer.

After his horrible act at the Oscar’s of physically assaulting and verbally assaulting Chris Rock on stage, I choose to no longer support a man that has the mental instability and lack of self control to do such a thing. Shame on you will smith.
