Rob Lowe has been in the biz, both lauded and hammered for his talent and behavior, so long that he seems to have developed actual wisdom. Great behind the scenes look at acting with Hollywood greats in a well structured fairly candid story. Beautifully read by author (great to hear his impersonations famous directors and agents). Highly recommended.
I absolutely loved listening to this book. And my husband, who ridicules me and my US/People magazines was thoroughly enthralled after only 10 minutes when I "forced" him to listen while I gave him a ride into town one day. This is the kind of book I would probably never pick up and actually read, but I can't think of a better way to spend my time in the car than listen to Rob tell his many entertaining stories. I highly recommend this book.
I got this book for free when I visited The View. I paid for this audiobook and i'm glad I did. I can't imagine not hearing this read by Rob himself. It was a sheer joy!
I throughly enjoyed this book narrated by Rob Lowe himself. I would of never guessed that he has had such an interesting life. You don't have to be a fan to enjoy. He has already more than proved himself as an amazing actor and now as an amazing writer too!!!
I typically don't get excited about an autobiography. I had seen an interview of Mr. Lowe about his book and became interested, am so thankful I did! Mr. Lowe does an excellent job of giving history without "trashing" anyone. of giving credit where it is well deserved and of admitting his flaws. His narration is excellent!! I hope he will narrate many more as he also has a talent for that! This is another book I listened to again after I had finished, and am sure I will listen to again soon. Thank You Mr. Lowe
I don't know why it is that we often assume that "beautiful" people will be vacuous and shallow. Mr Lowe's telling of his "stories" proves that such an assumption is without merit.
Both my husband and I were entertained by Mr Lowe's life story, and highly recommend it.
Struggling with my teens, struggling with my 20s, I felt this book to be so relatable. Unbelievable stories from such a commanding voice. Already ordered all of the west wing on net flix.
Will listen to any type of book: fiction, biography, business. I drive two hours daily and use audiobooks to tolerate the drive.
What a great book. I grew up while these actors were starting their careers, and maybe it makes it more fun to listen to. I loved how he talked about these soon to be stars and all their struggles. I loved it!
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!
