Is Pursuit of Happiness a True Story?

Is the movie the Pursuit of Happiness a true story or not?
Have you seen the movie the Pursuit of Happiness? It is about a father who doesn't have a job and needs to take care of his little boy.
His wife leaves them and they have to struggle to find a place to sleep and get a few dollar to eat something while the dad tries to find a decent job. I cried so much when I watched the Pursuit of Happiness. Does anyone know if the movie was inspired on a true story?

Yes, The Pursuit of Happiness is actually a true story.
Will Smith plays Chris Gardner and his son Jaden Smith plays Christopher.
In reality, Chris Gardner's son was only two-years-old when the film's plot unfolded in real life. The real Chris Gardner was okay with this liberty.
Gardner fought to raise his young son while homeless and living on the streets of San Francisco.
He eventually got back on his feet to become a millionaire stockbroker and business owner.
