Narrated by Will Smith.
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.

This book amounts to look behind the curtain of what made this icon who he is, warts and all. While it is incredibly insightful and well written - those of us who liked having him up on a pedestal for being superhuman will realize that he is imperfect like us all.
What you get in this book is life experiences from Will wrapped around singular ideas like "fear", "Power" and "Hope" and he uses those themes and stories to teach us lessons about life. This book left me with a new understanding of Will and myself - in my opinion, that's all a great biographical works should do.
The positives ? As I said well written, honest, frank and provides a deep understanding of Wills journey and what makes him tick….
The negatives ? The first 30/40% of the book is Will finding his way and you warm to the person, as you have to the person on screen…. However, once Will gets real success starting from the Fresh Prince period…he becomes narcissistic, up himself, completely self centred, obsessed about fame and his personal fortune, unlikeable, rude and deluded. If I had a £1 for every time he mentions that he’s the undisputed greatest actor in the world….I’d be wealthy too…. He’s not in the least humble, gracious or grounded. The way he describes his period with Muhammad Ali and Nelson Mandela….suggests he very much sees himself as being in the same category…. His description of deliberately interrupting a private conversation involving Stallone, Schwarzenegger and Willis to ask them “what he needs to do to ensure that he’s the greatest actor in the world” beggars belief….
As I said earlier, I’d very much recommend reading the book…even if it proves not to be what you thought it would be….
