The story of Abdel Sellou's surprising friendship with
aristocrat Philippe Pozzo di Borgo has been told and
retold around the world-most recently in the major motion
picture The Upside, with comedian and movie star Kevin
Hart portraying Abdel and his edgy charm. In this
appealing memoir, Sellou shows us the real man behind
Kevin Hart's smiling face. The book takes us from his
childhood spent stealing candy from the local grocery
store, to his career as a pickpocket and scam artist, to
his unexpected employment as a companion for a
quadriplegic. Sellou tells his story with a stunning
amount of talent, humor, style, and-though he denies that
he has any-humility.
