Jada Pinkett Smith revisits lessons learned in the course of a difficult but riveting life journey in Worthy, a bracingly honest memoir that takes readers on a rollercoaster ride from the depths of suicidal depression to the heights of personal rediscovery and authentic feminine power. With no holds barred, Pinkett Smith reveals her unconventional upbringing in Baltimore – as the child of two addicts to a promising theater student and a violent interlude as a petty drug-dealer – followed by a parallel rise to stardom alongside her close friend, Tupac Shakur; falling in love with and marrying Will Smith; and her joyous embrace of motherhood. Finding herself in crisis at age 40, Pinkett Smith recounts the excruciating choices she was forced to make to redefine her life in every way. And she shares highs and lows of the two unexpected love stories that beat within the heart of this powerful book: one being her complicated marriage to Will Smith, the other being the one with herself.
