    I'll start off by saying I had zero interest in reading this book. I was admittedly a hater and felt that although I am a huge fan of Kevin Hart's stand-up, he did not deserve a book deal. His grammar is so horrible, I had to unfollow him on social media. With that said....I LOVED this book. I really appreciated how honest and genuine the entire book felt. He was upfront about having a writer, and I think Hart and Strauss collaborated perfectly. ...

    Every experience is a potential life lesson. Even if you don’t appreciate it at the time, each struggle in the present is preparing you for something else in the future. Almost everyone knows Kevin Hart's name by now, but that wasn't always the case. In his memoir, he tells the story of how he became an "overnight success that was only sixteen years in the making"–from a shoe salesman whose biggest dream was to become a Nike rep to a world-fa...

    Find all of my reviews at: http://52bookminimum.blogspot.com/ “You can’t control the events that happen to you, but you can control your interpretation of them. So why not choose the story that serves your life best?” Let me begin this by saying I’m not what you’d call a big Kevin Hart fan. I have a couple or so young(ish) children who already will have a proclivity to swear words due to the simple fact that I am their mother, so when H...

    This book really made me appreciate Kevin Hart and his story is very eye opening. I'm not sure why I never realized how long he's been around. From the consumer standpoint, it seems that he just exploded onto the scene, seemingly out of nowhere. His hilarious autobiography shows that he's been busting his ass for years to get where he's at today. This was a great listen. If you're a fan of his standup, you'll definitely enjoy the audio.

    Kevin Hart is an award-winning comedian and actor, and it took him only 16 years to become an 'overnight success.' In this inspirational and entertaining memoir - written with Neil Strauss - Hart talks about his life, career, family, and friends - and it's clear that he's a loving son, loyal friend, devoted father, and exceptionally hard worker. Hart is also an honest man and admits that - in his youth - he was a bad husband to his first wife.......

    This is a surprisingly inspiring book. Yes, it was inspiring to read about how he overcame a challenging childhood to become the only comedian in history to sell out an NFL stadium, but it was also jam-packed with motivational passages for anyone who is working toward a dream. I read it from the perspective of my sister and myself—we’re both published novelists. Also, because of my sister, I know more than the average nonperformer about the w...

    Kevin Hart is the overnight success that was sixteen years in the making.I Can't Make This Up is as funny and brutally honest as Kevin Hart's standup comedy is. Kev as we his fans call him, has had a rough life. Drug addicted criminal father, overly strict and super religious mother. An unhappy first marriage that included domestic violence. Years spent struggling to make ends meet and nonstop rejection. No one believed in Kevin except his mother...

    About once every 4 or 6 weeks, I drive 4 hours to visit my sister, brother in law, baby niece, and fur-nephew. The drive is boring as hell. Literally over an hour and a half of it is a straight stretch of road in cornfield hell. There's construction everywhere that sometimes pushes it to 5 hours. Then there's the drive back in just two short days! It's worth it, but it tests my sanity. What I'm trying to say is, this audiobook is a godsend. It ma...

    I knew I would laugh, and I did - a lot! But more than that you learn that this funny guy isn't just some clown. He's worked and continues to work his ass off for his craft. The life lessons he shares are not revolutionary, however, when stated with his simplicity and humor you rewarded with some gems to live by. Awesome job Kevin Hart.

    September 18, 2017... I guess Kevin Hart can make this stuff up and for it, I'm questioning my rating to this bestseller... Give me another day or two as the ball drops on what he said about his personal life, marriage, etc... in the news. He has apologizes to his new wife and kids but what about the readers of his book/audio. We know that he is a comedian but please this stuff ain't. .funny at. all! So really what are the life lessons did Hart r...
