Superstar comedian and Hollywood box office star Kevin Hart turns his immense talent to the written word by writing some words. Some of those words include: the, a, for, above, and even even. Put them together and you have the funniest, most heartfelt, and most inspirational memoir on survival, success, and the importance of believing in yourself since Old Yeller. It begins in North Philadelphia. He was born an accident, unwanted by his parents. His father was a drug addict who was in and out of jail. His brother was a crack dealer and petty thief. And his mother was overwhelmingly strict, beating him with belts, frying pans, and his own toys. The odds, in short, were stacked against our young hero, just like the odds that are stacked against the release of a new book in this era of social media (where Hart has a following of over 100 million, by the way). But Kevin Hart, like Ernest Hemingway, JK Rowling, and Chocolate Droppa before him, was able to defy the odds and turn it around. In his literary debut, he takes the reader on a journey through what his life was, what it is now, and how he's overcome each challenge to become the man he is today. And that man happens to be the biggest comedian in the world, with tours that sell out football stadiums and films that have collectively grossed over $3.5 billion. He achieved this not just through hard work, determination, and talent: It was through his unique way of looking at the world. Because just like a book has chapters, Hart sees life as a collection of chapters that each person gets to write for himself or herself. "Not only do you get to choose how you interpret each chapter, but your interpretation writes the next chapter," he says. "So why not choose the interpretation that serves your life the best?" Candid, wickedly funny, and unforgettable, I Can't Make This Up is more than a memoir. It is a training manual designed to teach you a positive, drama-free outlook on life and code of conduct that will serve you, serve others, and serve your biggest, boldest dreams.

Life is quite wonderful. Some things just happen, others we make happen. Whatever the occurrence, it can't be made up retrospectively. In this book I have chronicled twelve real life events that delight me even now. The memory of my first encounter with a strange looking fruit called a banana still makes me smile and I still chuckle at a school friend's unusual advice on how to cure a common cold and the consequences when I followed it. Thinking of Truffles, an eccentric neighbour's potbellied pet pig, makes me laugh out loud. What about the time when a neighbour asked me to keep an eye on her car while she was away? I still feel foolish when she talks about it over coffee and on that note, if you were wondering where you can drink the ritziest brew ever, you will find the answer in this book...

In You Can’t Make This Stuff Up, William M. Scovell writes, “Somehow, we all get through it and land somewhere.” These stories find the mischievous and clever protagonist and a cast of colorful characters entangled in the web of life’s perplexing dilemmas, against the nostalgic backdrop of 20th and 21st century Americana. We all know this character. His fortune never changes as he meanders through grade school, his trials in college, trying to one-up the Rolls Royce salesman, panning for gold in Colorado and coping with his IRS audit. Infused with humor and Steinbeck-inspired wanderlust, these stories explore cherished friendships and purpose and depict day-to-day moments in Pee Wee baseball, Yankee reunions, small-town kids hitting the Big Apple, and his commentaries on the state of the world. Although he adeptly weasels through this medley of muddles with a positive outlook, God only knows how he survived. Must say something about the human condition. The stories provide a spoonful of sweet comic relief and an immediate off-ramp from life’s stresses as these whimsical tales draw readers along on the stirring adventures of that cute neighbor kid, we all knew had no future. Let’s dig in and have some fun!
