Perfect. Fun. Wonderful listening. Having Rob Lowe narrate it himself makes it even more incredible. I hated to have it end. He did a superb job writing the stories he tells.
I just finished this book and can't speak highly enough of it. Rob not only takes us on a journey through his life, but does a great job of narrating it as well. I really enjoyed it. If there was any one negative, I would say that it ended somewhat abruptly. I'm not sure when he actually finished writing it, but there wasn't much about his time from when he left The West Wing to present.
That being said, the book shows him to be so much more than the "brat pack" actor of the 80's that most people know him as.

Based on my scant knowledge of Rob Lowe, I expected this book to be a recital of a risque life with few serious notes. Instead I found a wonderfully written, stong, inciteful story of one actors personal evolution. This is the first book I have read about Hollywood that evoked real emotion and understnading in me. It is well paced, interesting, very real and very well read. Thank You...Write MORE
I saw you on Oprah, and since we've grown up together, decided to get your book. I have some news for you.... as good as your acting is, and it is good, you are a writer in your soul. Never have I read a book that was so well written and so well narrated. You also do really good impressions! Please write another book, I have a newly found respect for you; your outlook, your perspective, your talent. I hope I will read you again!
I bought this book last week, and my husband started to listen to it before I did! I'm enjoying the book so far.
What a fascinating book. I couldnt stop listening to it. I always enjoy audiobooks that are read by the author, but this is one of the most personal i have ever heard. Great audibook.
Let's face it, these authors aren't paying me, so there's no need to lie!!
I thought that Lowe was at the popint in his career where he'd still feel the need to "hold back" and "sugar coat" certain aspects of his life...boy, was I wrong!! He was refreshingly honest, thoughtful, and insightful about his life to this point. If you enjoy hearing about the long, hard road to the top of Hollywood, I strongly recommend this! Well read, as well, which I guess should be a given.
It was a great romp through his acting career.
I was more interested in his insights into the world and his family in particular. It would be great to see him open more about his personal views. Leaves me wanting more.
Loved this audiobook! Rob has lived such an interesting life with many diverse experiences. He openly shares both his triumphs and stumbles. His narration makes you feel as if you are having a casual conversation with him. It left me wanting more!
