Add author to actor-comedian Kevin Hart's list of accomplishments.

Atria Publishing Group said Tuesday that the Ride Along star is writing a memoir about his experiences growing up and early failures as a comedian that helped fuel his now-prolific career.

The book will be titled From the Hart and is scheduled to be released next year by Atria's imprint 37 Ink.

In addition to appearing in the Ride Along films with Ice Cube, Hart also starred in Get Hard with Will Ferrell and The Wedding Ringer.

Hart capped the announcement of his book with some humor, joking that his children know he's a big deal because he tells them every day. "Now I'll have a book out to prove it," Hart said in a statement.
