In fact, his entire family was homeless after his father, Percy Carrey, chose to resign from a job that was turning his family into bitter, hateful people.

Overcoming Adversity. Overcoming Adversity is an inspirational true story about how faith, trust in God, and perseverance consistently threaded through one’s journey can be a cornerstone of success and achieve a better quality of life. One would think that rising above a fractured childhood and poverty by achieving post-graduate degrees and two professional certificates would be impressive enough for anyone. Before his hilarious antics were topping box office sales in Liar Liar and The Mask, Carrey grappled with destitution and homelessness. By (author) Mary Hughes.

So, what encounters did Jim Carrey have with adversity? Jim (James Eugene) Carrey had more than one .

So, what encounters did Jim Carrey have with adversity? Jim (James Eugene) Carrey had more than one encounter in his growing years. He found out at a very early age that he had dyslexia which created a barrier for him in school. He struggled to support his mother in her battle with severe depression. He gave us a conscious reminder that the concept of commonality can easily grow lost on us. It can easily slip our minds throughout our inevitably busy lives, that we are all human beings partaking in a human experience together.

James Eugene Carrey The exceptional Canadian actor, Jim Carrey, has exploded onto the movie scene in the past .

James Eugene Carrey The exceptional Canadian actor, Jim Carrey, has exploded onto the movie scene in the past five years. His comedic unpredictability has become his trademark in Hollywood (Hughes 28). The roles he played in Ace Ventura: Pet Detective, The Mask, and Dumb and Dumber have brought back the dumb roots back to comedy (Trakin 56). His combination of physical grace and facial contortions can make just about anyone laugh. Even as a child in Newmarket, a suburb of Toronto, Carrey put on his own comedy shows for family, friends, and schoolmates. You couldn’t possibly have become the person you are today if you had not had to contend with adversity on your way up. Perhaps your chief aim in life is to develop a noble character, to become an excellent human being, to become everything you are capable of becoming.

Describes the personal life and professional career of the comedian who has starred in such movies as "The Mask," "The Cable Guy," and "Batman Forever"

The book is a little short, but it goes places other biographies of Jim Carrey does not cover. Unfortunately, a few chapters focus on play by play recaps of his movies, and are less about the man himself.

I would recommend the book Jim Carrey to anyone. The book is a little slow at the start because the authordwindles on Carrey's childhood and him struggle to fame, a little to much. but after that the book picks up quickly. Toward the and the book goes very fast and is exciting. The book ends with a quote drom Jim Carrey himself. "Failure taught me that failure isn't the end, unless you give up." I think that the book Jim Carrey is one of the best biography I have read. There is a lot of detail, I think that that is what makes the book so good. I recommed the book to anyone who is intersted in Jim Carrey.

Jim Carrey was not an overnight sensation, but he never gave up on his dream. His story is an inspiration for us all. For those wanting to learn more about the plight of the homeless, or how to help some of the millions of homeless people, there is an extensive appendix in the book, following the Carrey biography.

I thought the book was very interesting, but it could of been better. The author could of explainedhis life a little better. If the book was explained more with humor it would of been better because it is more likley for a child to read the book then a adult. Over all the book was good and I learned a lot about Jim.
