In October, 2018, Penguin Random House announced that Manson would work with Will Smith to write the actor's autobiography.

Critical response

Erica Rivera, writing for Mandatory.com, describes Manson's style in the book as being "as blunt as a man-to-man chat", and Katharine Pushkar describes it as "foul-mouthed, funny-as-hell, [and] dead-on", and his philosophy thus: "that life is hard, you're not special, happiness is a hollow goal and therefore you should make sure you're focused on the truly worthwhile", in her review in the New York Daily News.
