It felt like a conversation with a friend, truly, except Lowe's was the only voice. It felt honest and really moved me. I enjoyed how the book began, not a predictable start.
He did great impersonations, fun to hear
I laughed out loud regarding the Halloween story...
So many of the stories were about people or experiences I had heard about. It was very well written and wonderfully read by Rob Lowe. I found him to be funny and moving in sharing his experiences as an actor and writer.
It was really, really well done. He was so funny and commanding.
Yes, easy listening to a wonderfully spoken book.
Once ego was over looked, the story had a true ring to it. Seedy sides of past failures were not the focus, and family seemed to demonstrate that the author now has his life priorities as they should be.... I enjoyed the West Wing history, wondered why he left as everyone loved his character Sam. Nice easy book for a summer listen....
Just TV and movies....
Not notible enough for a film, but a nice book to listen to for the summer.
Who would've thought that this would be such a fine listening experience? Rob Lowe?!?
What do I care about Rob Lowe? Really. I only downloaded this after serious research on Audible, and I'm glad I did.
Indeed, he writes and narrates very well, tells a very entertaining story without being mean spirited. He tells all without "telling all," which is a pretty amazing thing.
Say something about yourself!
Absolutely. The story was funny, fascinating and charming. I would've never guessed Rob Lowe was so thoughtful, insightful and sensitive. I loved this book. He has had an amazing and fortunate life - and none of it has gone to his head.
The emotion you can hear in his voice and the thoughtful wisdom he shares.
Yes, I didn't want to get out of the car!
I've always been a Rob Lowe fan, but this blew me away. I will root for him to suceed in everything he does now!
There is nothing like listening to someone tell there story in their own voice, especially when the someone is a well-trained actor at the top of his craft.
The frank acknowledgment of the author's struggles with alchoholism and his fight to keep his Hollywood performances authentic.
Filming of the insiders.
An excellent book improved by a terrific narrator.
Listening to Rob Lowe is calming. The performance was enjoyable.
I would recommend this book. Rob Lowe shared some difficult times without whining or blaming. I saved the statement made near the end, " Nothing in life is unfair, it is just life."
I have not heard Rob Lowe read any other book. I am a West Wing fan and own all of the seasons on DVD. His performances are excellent.
I preferred listening chapter by chapter taking my time.
Writing a review is challenging.
Living in Granbury, TX. Semi-retired. Love to read but it's hard to find the time to sit down!
Even though I have always enjoyed watching Rob Lowe on t.v. - I really didn't KNOW anything about him and I was excited to find out that he is as nice of a guy as he appears to be. I enjoyed hearing everything he had to share and found it so refreshing to find someone who is an actor I enjoy and a person I now admire!
Definitely. Not only did Rob bring good stories to the table, but he also is a good impersonator and used voices. If you ever saw him do Robert Wagoner in Austin Powers, you'll understand how he's just as strong with other well known people he's worked with. It's pretty lighthearted but also with some insights.
How this incredibly beautiful looking man was such a "geek" in school. I find that amazing.
Definitely some good stories and brought you into the moment on the scene of movies or in his love life. I wanted more. He glossed over some events that I could have spent hours hearing about. Such as the incident in the hotel room with the underaged girls. I heard more in the news than from him. Not necessarily the actual sex act(s), but things that led up to the event and more about the aftermath. In the end, I totally recommend this book and if he writes another about his life, I'll get that too.
It's also really interesting to hear about him as a kid and school chums with other well known celebrities of today.
This was very entertaining to listen to. I was hooked from the beginning. Rob Lowe tells his story so well and its one I found I didnt know a lot about.
I loved the way he introduced celebrity encounters by not revealing who the individual was until the anecdote was told. He also did this with well known events.
If you love celebrity memoirs I would definitely give this one a chance. After I finished it I wanted more!
