Inspiration..Warts and All!
After seeing the movie, I was keen to understand what motivated Chris Gardner through the trials and tribulations he experienced. Not surprisingly, the book is different in many parts to the true story, but still, the tale of one of an individual facing enormous challenges. I think you would need to be careful which friends you shared the book with as Gardner is quite open about his girlfriends and what he liked about them! It is a warts and all story, and some of Gardner's problems do seem to be self inflicted. A great read!
