I really enjoyed this book. Yes, Rob Lowe is ridiculously good looking. But suprise! He's a real person too. A person who has had struggles and pain in his life and has come through it all to find success in a very difficult and competitive business. I especially enjoyed that he narrated it.
Some people chuckle when I tell them how much I enjoyed this book....as if Rob Lowe is someone we shouldn't take seriously. I don't get it. The guy experienced more by his 21st birthday than most experience in a lifetime. The stories are moving, funny and fascinating especially for an actor like myself. The high point? The way Mr. Lowe goes into tremendous detail to explain his Outsiders experience...
Awesome story, interesting stuff about his life I would have never guessed. Couldn't wait to listen to more every time I got in my car. Rob is an excellent narrator AND does amazing impressions! Loved it.
I have new respect for Rob Lowe. I'm this book he proves to be a intelligent writer and story teller who has grown deeper with all of his life's ups and downs. Glad I listened!
I've actually listened to this book several times. For my money, it's one of the best books to listen to. Sometimes I just listen to a chapter or two as the stories are very compelling.
I've listened to to both of Rob Lowe's books and this one is simply outstanding. Not only compared to his follow up book, but as a stand alone book.
This is a fantastic book, is full of great stories, and will lead you down many other fulfilling paths if you allow it. When I came across this book, I would not have called myself a "fan" of Rob Lowe. It's not like I did not like him, and the few times I have seen him in shows and movies, I enjoyed what he did. However, I would not actively seek out his works of art. What hooked me was his voice and story-telling ability that I heard in the sample of the book. I am glad I took the time to listen to that sample. The only thing that makes the actual content better is listening to Lowe read his own stories. Additionally, this book has led me to many other satisfying entertainment outlets. Since reading this book I have watched virtually everything I can find that has Lowe in it, including The West Wing, Parks and Recreation, St. Elmo's Fire, and About Last Night, and have enjoyed them all. Not only do I highly recommend this book, but I highly recommend Rob Lowe in everything he is involved in. He is fantastic in everything he touches.
