    I picked up this book for insights into Charlie s journey of self discovery I appreciate his honest portrayal of his struggles to becoming his own person, to living the life he wanted, and to staying the course despite setbacks This book reinforces the truth that talent must be accompanied with hard work, discipline, perseverance and stepping out of One s comfort zone.

    Before reading this book, I didn t know who Charlie Murphy was I thought from the cover, he sure looks like Eddie Murphy He is in fact, his older brother I enjoyed this book, written in first person, covering his life growing up in Brooklyn to the present This is a fast read with some really funny stuff sprinkled throughout the book When he was a kid, he recognized that he lacked the drive and purpose that his brother had I think that may have been a contributing factor along with the neig Before reading this book, I didn t know who Charlie Murphy was I thought from the cover, he sure looks like Eddie Murphy He is in fact, his older brother I enjoyed this book, written in first person, covering his life growing up in Brooklyn to the present This is a fast read with some really funny stuff sprinkled throughout the book When he was a kid, he recognized that he lacked the drive and purpose that his brother had I think that may have been a contributing factor along with the neighborhood that he lived in as to why he got into trouble with the law But he paid his price and set on a genuine search to find himself and what he could do well What I liked the best was that he gained respect for himself and did not disparage others He did not spout cheap Hollywood tell all stories but I think I would have preferred it if he didn t discuss the celebrities so much at the end of the book He touched on his guilt that his beloved parrot died while on the road I can understand why he never bought another parrot I would have loved to hear some about his relationship to the rest of his family in the present also I now know who Charlie Murphy is and would be delighted to meet him

    This was read so long ago, so I don t remember if this should be a 3 or 4, but since I remember really liking it, I gave it a 4 I liked the book because I had heard so much about his brother, Eddie, but hadn t known much about Charlie I enjoyed him on Chappelle s Show It was a refreshing read on the not so much known Murphy.
