Publisher's Summary

You’ve seen Kevin Hart rule the stand-up circuit. You’ve watched him take over Hollywood. You’ve even seen him slay the New York Times best seller list. Now he’s going to help you own your monsters.

Following his popular titles I Can’t Make This Up and The Decision, Kevin is back sharing the practical wisdom that he’s gained from a profound, life-changing event. Monsters and How to Tame Them is Kevin’s most recent guide on how to live your best life, wrapped in his signature honesty, hilarious voice, and adept storytelling. You’ve heard stories about vampires, zombies, and ghosts. Now it’s time to meet some of the monsters that haunt your mind. Kevin will introduce you to Control Monster, or the need to control everyone and everything around you that ultimately limits your chance to grow. Then there’s Comparison Monster. This one makes you compare yourself to others, causing irrational jealousy. You’ll also meet Approval Monster, that nagging feeling deep down inside you that just wants likes and approval from the entire world, which leads to endless emptiness.

If you’re afraid of these monsters and more lurking around every dark corner, let Kevin, the monster hunter, show you how to train those bad tendencies we all have in the recesses of our minds. But first, you’ll have to look and see who or what is hiding under your bed. Kevin’s got you. Now get them.

About the Creator and Performer

Emmy and Grammy nominee Kevin Hart was born and raised in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, where he launched his career as a comedian at an amateur night at a local comedy club. Over the years, Hart has become Hollywood’s box office powerhouse, opening ten films at #1 at the box office and grossing more than $4.23 billion in global revenue. Hart has also become a successful entrepreneur: He is chairman of Hartbeat Productions, a global, multi-platform media company creating entertainment at the intersection of comedy and culture with a mission to keep the world laughing together. The next generation media company unites Hartbeat Productions’ best-in-class TV and film production capabilities with Laugh Out Loud’s expansive distribution network, along with its marketing, sales, experiential, branded content, digital, and social capabilities. Hart is also the founder of Hartbeat Ventures; together, these two companies play an integral role in building Hart’s ecosystem for extraordinary growth and creativity.
Hart continues to develop, star in, and produce feature films, television, and podcasts via Hartbeat for his various partners, which include Netflix, Peacock, Sirius XM, and Audible. Hart is currently touring nationally with his eighth hour of stand-up material, The Reality Check Tour. In 2020, Hart released his seventh hour-long stand-up special Zero F**ks Given, which quickly became Netflix's biggest stand-up special of 2020 and earned him a Grammy nomination for Best Comedy Album. Hart also earned Emmy nominations for Outstanding Actor in a Short Form Comedy or Drama Series for Die Hart, along with an Emmy nomination for his docuseries Don’t F**k This Up. Kevin is a New York Times best-selling author twice over and his first Audible original, The Decision, was nominated for an Audie award in 2021 for Best Original Audiobook.

Another winner from Kevin Hart

Another fantastic audiobook from Kevin Hart. The man has conquered comedy and is taking over the self-help world using his own life as a series of examples of how he has improved himself.

This book is about Monsters, and how to identify and tame them. The monsters are ones such as The Comparison Monster, The Do-It-All Monster, The Control Monster, The Not-Me Monster, and others. I have known some of them, personally. This book is well worth the listen.

Great analogies but common insights

This audible book was good. A great listen and very insightful. I found this book to be more suited to beginner self-help audiences. Kevin is an amazing narrator and brings his comedic reactions to his stories which are funny. What he is saying is nothing new to avid self-help listeners.

Great points. Swearing was distracting!

I wish I could give 2.5. That is my rating...

So I really liked all the points he had and he nailed some of the monsters for me.

However all of his swearing and using the Lord's name in vain over and over was not needed at all. Way too much and really distracting. It totally turned me off from everything he was saying.

I really wish this was a book so I could go through and highlight the good parts and skip over all the unnecessary swearing.

Contemplating returning this...

This was simply amazing!

My future husband and I listened to this book together. Every time we took the car to go somewhere, we took to listen to it. Great times when we laughed, cried and grew together. Thanks to Kevin Hart and all his friends for giving us such an inspiring work! Hoping it doesn't encourage some of his monsters ;)

Awesome

Best book I’ve come across in years. Listened to it straight through and was disappointed when it ended.
It seemed like time flew by.
