He is also an author, director, painter and a Ph.D. candidate at one one of the most prestigious universities in the world. At the age of 32, Franco seems to have done and accomplished so many things in life. The life he has lived and the dreams he is determined to achieve all that and more in this book!

I bought this book because first, I literally love James Franco, and second , I want to know him better. And I'm glad that I was not disappointed by the book. It contains information about his career history, filmography, and interesting personal life. I was shocked to learn that this hunk did work at McDonald's! (I wished I had been their customer before). Nonetheless, I love him now more than ever after finding out the person he really is! A painter, award-winning actor, writer, director, wow, Franco is really a self-made man! I love it because the book gave me an overview of his tales of triumphs and defeats in the world of showbiz and inspired me to keep on dreaming and reaching for it whatever the cost.
