I heard that there was a history behind the movie 'Pursuit of Happyness', as this was the dream project of Will Smith.
I loved that movie and want to know the story. Can anyone help me find it?

Here is the few differences between the story of the movie and the biography:
The Dean Witter internship wasn't unsalaried, but had a $1,000/mo. stipend.
The internship lasted 10 months, not 6.
Chris Jr. was 18 months old, not preschool aged, when his mother left him with his father.
They were not rejected from a women's shelter; Glide Memorial, where they stayed in the movie and in real life, was a single mothers' shelter at the time.
He did not have to work short hours; in fact he started early and stayed late.
He was a bone scanner salesman, but not self-invested; he quit the job before taking the internship.
