Will by Will Smith and Mark Manson is Will Smith’s memoir/autobiography (or anything in between). This book is about his life as an actor, singer, and global celebrity. It is completely focused on the experiences and lessons he has learned throughout his life. He addresses, concentrating on specific occasions. He focuses on avoiding certain uncomfortable themes (like Scientology and his separation). Smith’s charm shines throughout the book, while co-writer Mark Manson (author of The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck: A Counterintuitive Approach to Living a Good Life) contributed to making it a fun read. It’s the ideal book for Will Smith lovers, especially as we approach the season of New Year’s Resolutions!
This is a courageous and fascinating book. In this book, our time’s most versatile and globally known entertainment figures opens up totally about his life. He traces his training to a point when exterior success, interior joy, and human relationships are all in sync. Will remembers one of the most spectacular adventures through the worlds of music and film that anyone has ever taken.
Will Smith’s incredible journey from a scared child in a stressful West Philadelphia home to one of the most renowned pop stars of his era and then to one of the most famous film stars in Hollywood history, with a string of blockbuster accomplishments that will almost certainly never be broken, is an incredible story of inner transformation and outer victory. Will explains the story quite well. This is, however, only half of the story.
Will Smith believed he had won at life with excellent purpose. His career was not only unrivaled, but his entire family was at the summit of the entertainment industry. However, they didn’t see it that way: they felt more like star performers in his circus, a profession they hadn’t agreed to work seven days a week. Will Smith’s schooling, it turned out, was far from complete.
This book is the outcome of a long voyage of self-discovery, a confrontation with all that your will can accomplish and all that it can leave behind. With Mark Manson’s help, the book is finished. Will is the story of how one exceptional man came to terms with his own feelings. It is written in such a way that it will assist others in doing the same.
Few of us have ever had to deliver for the highest of stakes on the world’s most prestigious stages. We can all understand, however, that the energy that works for one step of our journey may need to be adjusted if we wish to finish it. Will the book, like the subject matter, be unique? It mixes a factual insight of universal significance with an immensely fascinating, even incredible personal story.
