Being funny is different for everyone. What makes one laugh, can make another cringe. My type of humor includes the famous stand-up comedian Kevin Hart. In the past few years, his career has skyrocketed to fame. I was curious to see how his book would stand out from the majority of books celebrities “write” during the peak of their success.

  • Cover: This cover was well thought out. Most of the readers, this book targets, are familiar with Hart and his personality. Also, the title itself, I Can’t Make This Up: Life Lessons, is a common bridge in Hart’s stories and his style of storytelling.
  • Tone: I admit it! I have laughed hysterically throughout the various videos of Hart on Youtube. While you can’t laugh as much while reading a book, this book succeeded in making me so happy to read. I had to control my chuckles in public. It was a very straightforward friend to friend, type of recounting. I could tell there was a real voice behind the words.
  • Genre: I wanted to touch on this aspect of the book. I really like the fact that the book was marketed accurately as an autobiography. Some celebrities like to say they have a self-help book, but they lacks any significant information how to implement tips. Also, his book was precise. He would write a chapter title, and what you read, is exactly what the chapter is about. It’s not meant to be read in chapters, but he makes it easier to follow by dividing the book into sections and then sub-sections.
  • Final Thoughts: Thoroughly enjoyed this book and how well Hart shows himself in a more serious light, but manages to make his audience laugh regardless. If anyone is familiar with Hart’s work and enjoys his comedy, I definitely think they would like the background of how hard Hart worked to make himself and his brand into what it is today.  It wasn’t all laughter and cackles, since anything worth anything, is hard to reach.
