Rob Lowe reflects on his life, provides insights in to his learnings and shares a deeper side of himself in this book. I've always liked his movies and thought of him as an attractive male lead, but in this book we learn he is so much more than that. He's thoughtful, kind, and caring. He has similar challenges in life as all of us do. This book is full of great stories and experiences. I highly recommend it to anyone, even if you're not a fan of Rob Lowe's movies.
Finished it pretty quickly. Enjoyed Lowe's honesty and the voices he did to mimic a certain character. Happy that he found what he was looking for.
From a child of the 80's, I grew up watching movies of Rob's and he graced my walls via posters.
That being said this book was written from his standpoint and only as an adult can you appreciate reality and truth, raw truth.
His life was full of the same things you and I experience, just with different outcomes.
The hurts and disappointments, the joy and the struggles. The taunting from other kids and his triumphs are what we all go through.
His sheet desire and tenacity to achieve his goals is all laid out here and I can't wait to listen to his next book.
It was nice to hear him read his own stories; it felt as if he were there sharing them with you.
I would recommend to anyone who enjoyed his tv shows or films; and who is interested in knowing the truth behind the magazine covers.
I was surprised at how much I enjoyed this book. As a child of the 80's I could remember where I was when Rob describes many of the events in the book and I remember seeing him in many of the projects he talks about.
I have been telling everyone what a great storyteller he is and I would recommend this book to anyone who's a Gen-Xer or even heard of Rob!
Take the time to be surprised by a wonderful story teller.
Rob Lowe has shared with us, his story. I certainly have a new respect for him as a writer and as a human being, husband and father.
