Chris Gardner Biography

Chris Gardner is an entrepreneur, international best-selling author and award-winning film producer. Gardner’s autobiography, The Pursuit of HappYness, became a New York Times #1 best seller, has been translated into over forty languages, including six dialects of Chinese and is currently being translated into Arabic.

More than a memoir of Gardner's financial success, The Pursuit of HappYness is the story of a man who breaks his own family's cycle of men abandoning their children. Mythic, triumphant, and unstintingly honest, The Pursuit of Happyness conjures heroes like Horatio Alger and Antwone Fisher and appeals to the very essence of the American Dream. The book was made into a film, and Gardner was portrayed by Will Smith, who received the Golden Globe, Screen Actors Guild and Academy Award nominations for his performance.

Start Where You Are, Gardner’s best-selling autobiography, was published in 2009 and shares 44 life lessons. Additionally, he won a Peabody Award for producing “And Still I Rise,” a documentary about the life of his dear friend and mentor Dr. Maya Angelou.

Gardner has, as he says, re-enlisted in the United States Navy. He was honored to receive The Lone Sailor Award from the United States Navy Memorial Foundation. Some of the previous winners of this award include: Arnold Palmer, Senator and Astronaut John Glenn and President John F. Kennedy.

Gardner’s sole goal of his media projects and speaking engagements is to help others achieve their fullest potential.
