Will Smith

Overview

Will Smith self-identifies as a people pleaser. His deeply internalized drive to entertain made him a global star and one of the highest box office earners of all time. But that drive came with some serious baggage that nearly destroyed Smith.

Written with self-help guru Mark Manson, author of The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck, Will reveals the dark, tortured side of the playful jokester who became famous in the 1990s sitcom The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air and transformed into an award-winning movie career.

From blowing through millions of dollars and tax evasion as a rapper to his fraught relationship with his father and his rocky marriages, Smith doesn't shy away from the ugly, painful aspects of his life and how he healed and overcame them.
