very much a miss for me. Too much drama in some of the stories and over the top nuances

One of the comedy world's fastest-rising stars tells his wild coming of age story during the twilight of apartheid in South Africa and the tumultuous days of freedom that followed. Noah provides something deeper than traditional memoirists: powerfully funny observations about how farcical political and social systems play out in our lives.

On January 13, 2016, at the close of a taping of Family Feud, Steve Harvey spontaneously began to speak. Not knowing that the cameras were still rolling, the $100 million host offered his studio audience insights into his own happiness and success. His staff, also moved by Steve's passionate words, shared the riveting six-minute video on social media. The clip immediately went viral, with more than 58 million views worldwide!

Recycling Same Old Stories

Pretty much the same old messages from Act Like Success but with much fluff. Some new material but not much value such as the long drawn out story about the miss universe contest. IMO Act Like Success was much more valuable than this book. Also, the choice of narrator was not great. Struggled to get through with very monotone, unexciting delivery of the material. A lot of the mannerisms fall flat due to choice of narrator. A read by Steve would have had a greater impact.
