I Can't Make This Up: Life Lessons

"Sometimes, other people's doubt can be the best motivation there is to succeed." ~ pg. 124

Professional comedian, Kevin Hart, is dropping gems of knowledge like this in a new 99-chapter inspirational memoir. Life lessons are from his parents, school, work, loss, independence, legacy building and more. It really covers every aspect of life. And I am not exaggerating when I tell you I started laughing at page 3 and continued until page 424.

"Yes, I Refer To Myself in the Third Person Again. But That's Only Because It Feels Like I've Lived Three Lives." ~ Ch. 64

I Can't Make This Up is so funny that these essays really cannot be made up. Kevin's family, friends and peers are a colorful cast of characters. The chapter titles are comedy in itself and set the tone for the life lesson to be explained. It even includes the obligatory chapter where celebrities reveal how they sabotaged their own fame and success. Never would I have thought I'd highlight so many passages from a book by a comedian. But alas, I have a slew of bookmarks and a boost of inspiration. Very well done, Kevin Hart!

Happy Pub Week, Kev! I Can't Make This Up: Life Lessons is now available. Do I have to spell it out for you, bookhearts? Buy and read it!
