For starters, the writing in 'I Can't Make This Up' is impeccable, feels like conversation with Kevin Hart, himself. There were several instances throughout the early reading that I felt myself wishing that I could reach through a time portal and give that kid a hug. I soon found myself simultaneously laughing and feeling sorry for Kevin Hart. Then feeling a wave disappointment at the realization that he too, comedy's latest golden child, is human.
I applaud his level of honesty and often felt conflicted at laughing at the stuff that I was laughing at. This book showed me that his coping skills are almost incredulous. In my humble opinion, the only thing bested by his gift of self-motivation is his resilience. I love how he chose to pull readers into his circle, his process, and his thought process. Likewise, I find it courageous and at times, unsettling that he chose to disclose his entire truth, including the ugly parts.
But aside from the hilarity and all the reflections of his journey, this is a motivational book for any aspirant feeling stagnant or frustrated. Very few are willing to tap one's shoulder and whisper advice. Here, Kevin Hart is presenting a blueprint. One showing how sacrifices, his own and those made for him, eventually lead to unimaginable spoils. But 'I Can't Make This Up' definitely goes to show that everything happens for a reason, and there is a bountiful blessing waiting when we stay the course.
