The Pursuit of Happyness
In May of 2006, Chris Gardner published his autobiographical work The Pursuit of Happyness, which told his miraculous rags to riches story. That December, the movie version starring Will and Jaden Smith was released. Though both stories were equally inspiring (and definitely worth reading/watching), the movie did leave out and change a few details: the timeline of events was different and Gardner’s son was actually 2-years old at the time they were homeless.
“The world is your oyster. It’s up to you to find the pearls.”
-Chris Gardner, The Pursuit of Happyness
