I didn't know what to expect when I bought this book. I just wanted to support Kevin Hart, because I'm also from Philly. To say that I was pleasantly surprised would be an understatement. I LOVED this book. I feel so INSPIRED to do more with my life. Thank you Kevin Hart!!

Within the space of four days I read and I heard in the audio book some of the most hilarious and insightful stories ever put down on paper.

Oh my God, I am so mad. If anybody ever tries to write a book about their life ever again, they need to read this book first. I was expecting this book to be funny. I didn't realize that it would also make me think. To be the man that he is, given where he came from Kevin Hart has not only earned my respect but by undying admiration. My only advice is that you don't read this book at night while your spouse is trying to sleep. It is laugh out loud funny. I love that he gives so much credit to the people that helped him along the way. If you love his stand up and his movies, I am highly recommending this one. The only book that ever had me laughing like this one did was a book called Stories I Wouldn't Tell Nobody But God, that I found it here on Barnes and Noble in paperback. I haven't read any book as good since, except the sequel to Stories I Wouldn't Tell Nobody But God. It is called Cold Summer Afternoon. Buy it! Borrow it! Read it!

Kevin Harts "I Can't Make This Up: Life Lessons" is such an entertaining story. I laughed myself to sleep every night since last Tuesday. Hart is such an amazing vivid storyteller..... no spoilers but after a certain chapter with his mother, the next morning I woke up, got on the phone and called my mom to tell her Kevin's story she loved it. I already got another copy to mail to my dad for father's day. I read alotta memoirs and only a few have I started re-reading after I finished the whole thing. Also, this isn't just a line-line-punchline book that a lot of comedians write... you know, the just rehashing jokes they have done for years. Not this book---it's so so much more. It's well-written, heartfelt, reflective, and overall a fun story of a guy who found an art he loved, friends he trusted, and an unrivaled drive to make his fans happy. He shares his mistakes and vulnerabilities throughout his career so far but does it in a way that's genuine, and funny. I mean really funny! And the advice at the end of the book is worth re-reading often. Bravo. Two thumbs up. Get this book.

Thanks to NetGalley and Atria Books for the opportunity to read and review I Can't Make This Up: Life Lessons by Kevin Hart. Kevin Hart is known for his hilarious ranting and his extreme expressions. His memoir shows all that is funny about Kevin Hart and also the serious side of his life and how he became the energetic comedian he is today. Photos are scattered throughout the book, including pictures of Kevin throughout his life and a family picture with his mother and brother. The three of them resemble each other so much that it surprised me. I especially enjoyed his acknowledgments which contain some hilarity of their own. Even his disclaimer is funny. 5 stars for a memoir that opened my eyes to the real Kevin Hart! *I received a complimentary copy of this book for voluntary consideration.

I love Kevin Hart I think he is so funny so I could not wait to get his book. I have to say I'm disappointed. First few chapters were great and had me laughing but the book dragged on forever. If you a comedian you might like this book he gives a lot of great tips but for me this one was a flop. I'm sorry Kevin but I had a hard time finishing it.

I bought this book as a gift since it received great reviews. Then I decided to buy the book for myself. I saw some of Kevin Hart's movies. However, I did not know much about him. I find the book to be very interesting and entertaining as he takes the reader from his early life (parents, high school years, 1st jobs out of high school) all the way through how he became a successful comedian. At the end of each chapter he gives advice on the aspect of the life lesson. The book is well written. And I found myself not wanting to put the book down.

There is more that makes up Kevin Hart than I ever imagined. It was inspirational, educational, and of course, funny.
