Will Smith is sharing his story on his own terms.

On Saturday, the award-winning actor revealed the title and cover of his upcoming autobiography, WILL, on Instagram and his website. The inspirational memoir will be published by Penguin Press on Nov. 9.

In WILL, Smith will explore his personal trajectory, from his childhood in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, to his iconic roles in The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air and an array of hit films like Ali (2001) and Hitch (2005).

The book is an "inspirational tale of how [Will Smith's] true self-knowledge helped to propel him to extraordinary success, and then evolve further to a place of deeper peace - with himself, his loved ones, and the world," according to the press release announcing the book deal in October 2018.
