Will by Will Smith Book PDF Summary

This book did a magnificent job laying out the tenets of Will Smith’s personality and their origin. This book has 21 main chapters and a total of 411 pages. At the end of the book there are 64 pictures of Will and his family members; from pictures of his parents before he was born to pictures of him as a child, pictures with extended family members, on the set of TV shows and movies, and with his children.

The book starts with a prologue about an important lesson Smith learned from his dad as he was laying bricks to build a wall with his brother. Then the first chapter deals with Smith’s childhood, as he recalls his early years being defined by a sense of fear. He describes his parents and how they met, and how they became a family of six, with his older half-sister Pam and his twin siblings Harry and Ellen.

There are heartbreaking stories of domestic violence that the kids witnessed, and Smith was deeply affected by these incidents. Over the next few chapters Smith describes his life as he grew up. He touches on his vivid imagination, his love of performing and making people laugh, being introduced to hip-hop by his older cousin Paul, meeting DJ Jazzy Jeff, and going on tour with other hip-hop acts.

The next few chapters cover other major events in Smith’s life: winning the first Grammy for a rap artist, getting his heart broken by his girlfriend, his popularity fading after his lackluster third album, going broke, hitting rock bottom, meeting Quincy Jones, and starting the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air TV show. Smith goes on to describe his success on TV, and transition to his goal of becoming a movie star.

He covers his first marriage, the birth of his first son Trey, getting divorced, and falling in love with Jada Pinkett. Over the rest of the book, Smith describes many other experiences he had, and his attempts at balancing a successful acting career with his growing family, after the birth of Jaden and Willow.
