Description
One of the most dynamic and recognized forces in the world of entertainment shows us his life in a brave and inspiring book where success, inner happiness and human connection are combined. Will tells the story of one of the most extraordinary careers in music and film. Will Smith, an insecure kid raised in uptight West Philadelphia, became first one of the biggest rap stars of his era and then one of the biggest Hollywood stars of all time, with a succession of box-office hits. which most likely will never be interrupted. It is an epic story of inner transformation and outer triumph; a story that Will tells extraordinarily well. And yet, that is only half the story. Will Smith thought, and rightly so, that he had won the lottery of life: it was not only that his own success was unparalleled, but that his entire family stood at the pinnacle of the world of entertainment. entertainment. However, they did not see it that way: they felt like the protagonists of Will's circus, a job that occupied them seven days a week and that, moreover, they had not applied for. Will Smith's education had only just begun. These memories are the product of a journey of deep introspection that confronts us not only with all that we can achieve through willpower, but also with all that we can leave behind for that very reason. Written with the help of Mark Manson, the author of the best-selling The Subtle Art of Giving a Shit (almost everything), which has sold millions of copies worldwide, Will is the story of one person who has managed to take the reins of their emotions and is written so that everyone who reads it can do the same. Few of us will ever experience the pressure of performing on the world's biggest stages and having so much at stake, but we can all understand that we may very well have to change what has driven us to complete a stage in life if we want to reach the goal. The combination of genuine, universally valuable wisdom and a life story that's so entertaining, if not astonishing, it's almost unbelievable, puts Will in a class of its own, like its author.
Description
Una de las fuerzas más dinámicas y reconocidas en el mundo del entretenimiento nos muestra su vida en un libro valiente e inspirador donde se conjugan el éxito, la felicidad interior y la conexión humana. Will narra la historia de una de las trayectorias más extraordinarias de la música y el cine. Will Smith, un niño inseguro criado en el tenso Oeste de Filadelfia, se convirtió primero en una de las mayores estrellas del rap de su era y luego en una de las mayores estrellas de Hollywood de todos los tiempos, con una sucesión de éxitos de taquilla que muy probablemente no se interrumpirá nunca. Es una historia épica de transformación interior y de triunfo exterior; una historia que Will narra extraordinariamente bien. Y, sin embargo, eso es solo la mitad de la historia. Will Smith pensaba, y con razón, que había ganado la lotería de la vida: no era solo que su propio éxito no tuviera parangón, sino que toda su familia, al completo, se hallaba en el pináculo del mundo del entretenimiento. Sin embargo, ellos no lo veían así: se sentían como los protagonistas del circo de Will, un trabajo que les ocupaba los siete días de la semana y que, además, no habían solicitado. La educación de Will Smith no había hecho más que comenzar. Estas memorias son el producto de un viaje de introspección profunda que nos confronta no solo con todo lo que podemos conseguir a base de fuerza de voluntad, sino también con todo lo que podemos dejar atrás por ese mismo motivo. Escrita con la ayuda de Mark Manson, el autor del exitoso El sutil arte de que (casi todo) te importe una mierda, del que se han vendido millones de ejemplares en todo el mundo, Will es la historia de una persona que ha conseguido tomar las riendas de sus emociones y está escrita para que todo el que la lea pueda hacer lo mismo. Pocos de nosotros llegaremos a experimentar nunca la presión de actuar en los escenarios más grandes del mundo y de tener tanto en juego, pero todos podemos entender que es muy posible que tengamos que cambiar lo que nos ha impulsado a completar una etapa en la vida si queremos llegar hasta la meta. La combinación de una sabiduría genuina y de valor universal y de una historia vital que es tan entretenida, por no decir asombrosa, que llega a ser casi increíble, ubica a Will en una categoría propia, como a su autor.
