“You’ll be hard-pressed to find a Hollywood memoir with this much blood and (broken) bone” (Entertainment Weekly) in this candid, thrilling autobiography from one of the most recognizable, influential, and beloved cinematic personalities in the world. Everyone knows Jackie Chan. Whether it’s from Rush Hour, Shanghai Noon, The Karate Kid, or Kung Fu Panda, Jackie is admired by generations of moviegoers for his acrobatic fighting style, comic timing, and mind-bending stunts. In 2016—after over fifty-five years in the industry, over 200 films, and many broken bones—he received an honorary Academy Award for his lifetime achievement in film. But Jackie is just getting started. Now, in Never Grow Up, the global superstar reflects on his early life, including his childhood years at the China Drama Academy (in which he was enrolled at the age of six), his big breaks (and setbacks) in Hong Kong and Hollywood, his numerous brushes with death (both on and off film sets), and his life as a husband and father (which has been, admittedly and regrettably, imperfect). In this “impossibly colorful memoir” (USA TODAY), Jackie applies the same spirit of openness to his “legendary life, with many fascinating stories waiting for you to discover” (Jet Li), proving time and time again why he’s beloved the world over: he’s honest, funny, kind, brave beyond reckoning and—after all this time—still young at heart.
