Will by Will Smith & Mark Manson Book Summary

The instant #1 New York Times bestseller!

“It's the best memoir I've ever read.” —Oprah Winfrey

“Will Smith isn't holding back in his bravely inspiring new memoir . . . An ultimately heartwarming read, Will provides a humane glimpse of the man behind the actor, producer and musician, as he bares all his insecurities and trauma.” —USA Today

Winner of the NAACP Image Award for Outstanding Literary Achievement

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.

!. Great read

Great book for life lessons and thoughts.. This is not an Bly a book about Will but about his life experiences and how you can use them for your own life situations. Highly recommend listening to this vs reading it!!! I listened to Will read this book and it made more of an impression and much more sense to what he was saying.

Excellent Read. I get him on so many levels and the transparency is wonderful! I appreciate his contributions so much more!

Amazing. Great insight on an amazing person and life.

OMG. This is the best book I’ve ever read.

Thank you. This is a great read. I enjoyed every page.

we w. ok w the next

Holds Nothing Back. Will Smith is not very, but extremely open about life. From the beginning to the end he holds nothing back about his ups & downs, triumphs & tragedies. He also gives readers an inside view of how the music industry & Hollywood REALLY works & fame & fortune is not all that it seems. HIGHLY recommended!

Book of the year!!. It was a great read. It really let you into the mind of Will Smith. I feel like he poured his soul into this book. If you are a fan, this is the book to have.

Self Imposed Bubbles. I had this memoir on my list well before the infamous slap took place. I can unabashedly say he has been a favorite of mine for a long time. A positive representation of the black male experience in a forest of negative casting. Reading his memoir gives his life and the incident new meaning by adding fifty years of context into one of the world’s biggest personalities. What you see in the end Is that this memoir is about how we all can fall victim to navigating the universe through bubbles we place ourselves into. Over the course of these very personal and candid stories Will Smith shows us how these bubbles distort reality for better or worse. We get a backstage pass into the fear and need for approval that is at the root of his being and perhaps your own. In the most revealing moments we see how the misalignment of expectations has impacted his most intimate relationships. In that light the big Oscar moment makes more sense. People hate to say the word regret. As if it marks us as failures. I applaud Will Smith for leaning into his regrets and showing them for what they are. Lessons from the hindsight of reliving our mistakes and showing the humility to admit where we were wrong. In that revelation a new level of freedom sets in and allows for some of deepest spiritual and mental growth. Sometimes that freedom results in lifestyles we generally can’t understand but for Will and Jada make complete sense.

I’ve always been a Will fan but….. I’ve always been a Will fan but this has given me so much more respect for him and all his accomplishments. He opened a window into his soul for all to see. There was no filter or blinders put on. He kept my full attention from beginning to end. I grew up watching Will and enjoyed everything he put his blessings on. I found myself relating to quite a few things. The book flowed and found myself being educated in a different way and perspective. It’s a must read and will definitely give you more admiration and a better understanding of Will Smith. I look forward to reading again and again. Thanks Will for sharing!

Beautiful, REAL and RAW!!. I could not put this book down!! I am inspired. Will is a beautiful human being and that’s why he’s so blessed beyond measure. He deserves everything he has and more.

Book review by Pete T.. I just loved the book, laughed and cried throughout it. I can’t relate to the success in hip-hop, TVs, and movies that Will had (no one can) but I can relate to the family stories with Daddio, having an extremely loving mother as my bedrock, and brothers, sisters and friends that provided unconditional love to me throughout my life. I started reading the book before Will’s unfortunate slap down of Chris Rock, stopped reading it for a week, and then picked it up again with aplomb. You realize from reading the book that Will is a savant, complicated cat, DEEP thinker, and HARD worker but no ordinary person can reach the heights in rap, TV, and movies without some internal tumult. That’s what makes Will … Will, and I so appreciate him. When his Daddio was dying, he asked himself, “Did my Life Have Meaning”; when Will’s penultimate day comes and he asks himself that, the answer will be a resounding “YES”. (And btw, I loved Gigi.)

Amazing!. Couldnt put it down! I want MORE! Love his open-ness and raw stories about his life- his emotional tide as well as his physical ride. Love this book! Love him!!! Love his family!!!!

Beautiful book. Great read. Very informative, inspirational, humorous and humbling!

A must read!. This book is a must read! Absolutely phenomenal!

Good read.. Oh my. Will did good with this one.

Highly recommended!. A must read if you are a fan of Will Smith. Inspiring on so many levels!

Surprisingly great book!. He’s a man who’s now aware of his flaws and the personality/ego he built to protect himself and those around him. It’s funny. It’s outrageous. And yet it still manages to deliver a story of transformation . . . An ongoing transformation, of course. Put aside everything you’ve heard and seen him do - the good, the foolish, the immature and everything in between. Read it. I think he’s transforming upwards.

Great read. Love the book

Will The Great!. Thank you for you in this lifetime and beyond Will! You always was on time for the culture with swagger and pure confidence.👊🏾🔥

WILLPOWER!!. Great and inspirational read!! Opens the mind to a greater construct of Love, Happiness, gratitude, family, and mostly overcoming fear!!

Highly recommended!. A very deep and sincere book.

First book ever read in life!. I’ve never read a book before & I am currently 26 years old. From the first page “building that brick wall” I was hooked and couldn’t put it down. Also, the fact that I related to most of Will Smith’s life occurrences is another reason why I was so intrigued with this book. If I can give it 10 stars I would. Now I want to read more books like this 😂.

Absolutely amazing!. Love the book! Love the audio version , narrated by Will himself. I appreciate the openness and vulnerability. This book echoes a lot of my own life journeys and revelations. This book helped me overcome my own struggles from the past . Every chapter brings loads of wisdom. It’s one of my most favorite books I’ve read in a very long time.

Good; Didn’t love it. A good read and detailed background into Will’s life

The most insightful and impactful auto biography I’ve ever read. Every page urges turn the next one. You don’t want to miss any story or lesson hidden in these stories! Love it

Love reading this book !!!!! I learned so much about life and what is important in this journey!!!. 👍🏽

This is a great read. I’ve read the first three chapters and was hooked since chapter one. I’ve felt more connected to “Will” than ever before since reading this book. There’s so much more to be said, however, you’ll need to purchase and read it for yourself. #NoSpoliers

Best book I’ve read in ages. Beautifully written book. Incredibly inspiring and thought provoking.

Excellent. Truly excellent read. Lots to learn and appreciate. Will did an awesome job of authentically portraying all of the reflection and growth he has done throughout his life. Bravo.

In love. This is so captivating,full of life lessons,humor, tears and honesty . I just loved it and I recommend it for everybody.

Great book!. I’m a fan of Will’s. I love his movies & TV show. I really enjoyed reading about his life. Open, honest read.

Great Book!. I feel like family now! May your second half of life be as great as your first Will! Thanks for sharing!

I like it!. Inspirational, Funny and filled with Will’s wisdom

This booked rocked me. This book slaps 10/10

❤️. I love you Will❤️

Honest and engaging. This book far surpassed my expectations. Mr. Smith is a masterful storyteller, indeed. He writes with humor, tenderness and honesty…painting such a vivid picture of his childhood, that once his career gets going, the reader feels they’re relating to someone they knew in high school, even as he engages in one extraordinary experience after another. Already known for his ability to feel “accessible” from the stratosphere of stardom, Will has taken that quality to another level by including the reader in this very sincere examination of self.

Great Journey. The life he has experienced thus far is one of true inspiration and fortune with the right people met at the correct time for his potential

Fun book. Went into this book without expectations and found it super engaging and fun to read!

Always wanted to know more about him. Part two in a couples decades? Thank you for sharing your life with us. Thank you Will Smith!

I love it.. I

Loveeeeeeee this book. Great & intimate book

Thoroughly Enjoyed Each Chapter. I’ve never heard Will Smith talk this long about himself, but it was a conversation with the Reader that gave me the journey thus far of Will Smith and it is an enjoyable one. His sense of humor and intellect, are all through it and makes the read that much easier to read, never a dull moment and many magical ones. Thank You for sharing so many intimate moments of your life with us. 🙏🏽

Makes Me Love Him More!. Will Smith is my favorite actor and him sharing his life in this book makes me love him even more. I read the entire book in his voice lol and it was just great! A must read!

Good read.. I appreciated everything about the book. I read a lot of people’s comment about how much Will bragged. But I didn’t see it that way. As i read through the book I thought this is a man sharing what it’s like to live in stardom outwardly but struggle to find and enjoy the stardom within. This book highlighted multiple roles you have to play throughout life to finally understand who you are aside from the expectations of others. This book made me more a fan of and appreciate Will as a whole instead of just a celebrity. So check it out!

Great Memior!. The only disappoitment was when I got the end! Incredibly inspiring. Thank you Will.

Recommended. Awesome story.

A MUST READ. Absolutely incredible read! Thank you.

Great book.. Loved the stories and life lessons.

Will. Amazing!

Awesome!!!. I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It is a great book with so many nuggets about life, success, following your dreams and being true to yourself. I learned so much about the music industry, the TV and film industry as well. I can appreciate more Will Smith as a person versus as a celebrity. I think he put his soul into this book and it shows as it resonates with my soul. He was honest about everything!!! About his quest for success, his misgivings in his personal and professional life and his family. I was already a fan of the Smiths family. Now I admire how them being open to share their truths with the worl in the platform can have ripple effects in tho the world. Great joy to read this book!

One brick at time. Thank you for sharing. It was enlightening, graceful, entertaining and definitely worth reading.
