Having grown up in the 80's I was intrigued by this book by my former Teen Beat crush but went in not expecting much. I LOVED this book. Rob Lowe's narration following his career from his childhood through the video scandal to the West Wing has renewed my crush all over again and really put that sex video scandal in perspective. If it had happened now it would've restarted his career not stalled it!
Say something about yourself!
One of my secret pleasures is the celebrity biography, and here we get two for the price of one. I've been a Martin Sheen fan from "The Final Countdown" when I was eleven to the President Bartlett on "The West Wing". Since I was a teenager in the eighties, I'm very familiar with the work of Emilio Estevez. I was impressed at how self-aware these guys are, and their love for each other is obviously strong. I've seen a lot of criticism about the spiritual aspects (or not) of the book, but that's really not a big part of it. It's mostly a (surprisingly earnest) memoir by two actors about their careers and growing as father and son.
