picky old lady
The title of this book is perfect for the Audible format. Let me preface by saying that I'm only peripherally aware of Rob Lowe's work, not a groupie-personality, and bought the book based on other reviews.
It 100% feels like a friend telling you a story from their own experience, and can be listened to one anecdote at a time with each being well-crafted, interesting and very well-told. Completely enjoyable. My recommendation: if you're interested in the book, buy it in AUDIO format. I'm glad I did.
Great background stories to the Hollywood headlines we all saw on the news or read about. The story of Hollywood actors sure seem removed from reality, but the way Rob told his story makes it all relate-able to the average normal american boy.
I would absolutely recommend this well told, delightful, poignant story.
Rob's ability to be articulate, but also down-to-earth and showing his human fears, joys and foibles.
No, I have never listened to, read or truthfully, even watched any of his movies. After listening to this, however, I have made it a point to watch.
Well Done, Mr. Lowe!
I enjoy listening to audio books because they entertain me while doing other mundane life's chores!!! I am taken to other places and have an eclectic taste!
Refreshing story...I am not normally a celebrity watcher whatsoever, but this looked interesting and Rob Lowe conveyed that even though he chose acting as a career, having a normal life with friends and family is after all what people need to have a happy and healthy life!! I really enjoyed peeking into a world we know nothing about in my family....and yes. We are just as lucky, too!! Thanks, Rob Lowe, for your story. I am reading and watching the Outsiders now because of this listen as well.
Having little understanding of an actor's life, Rob delivered for me a sense of the journey with candor and humility.
Francis Ford Coppola. Clearly he lives in another dimension.
Patrick Swayze. Rob Lowe projecting a Texas twang was entertaining.
Rob's accounts of John Jr. Could get you to tear up.
Yes, honest, fun, interesting and entertaining autobiography.
Enjoyed hearing about the other actors and people he grew up with and met along the way.
Great hearing him tell his story, like he was in the car with me.
It was had to stop at times, but I didn't mind a few breaks.
Say something about yourself!
Good job rob, or whoever wrote this.

Yes I would listen to Stories I Only Tell My Friends again because it was a very entertaining book. I think people that do not like autobiographies would still love listening. Rob Lowe has had a charmed yet challenging life. My message to Rob would be that I am sure his Mother is proud.
I wouldn't compare this book to others I have recently read.
This was the first one. I would be interested in hearing more.
Made me smile and do some soul searching.
Glad I read it. Very enjoyable.
This was my first audio book and it was the perfect choice! I love Rob's animated and sincere narration and his stories were entertaining and engaging. I thoroughly enjoyed the entire 9 hours and it left me wanting to hear more. Thanks Rob!
Excellent! A funny and entertaining account of growing up first as an outsider, and then becoming part of and working his way through Hollywood. The audiobook is narrated by him and was engaging to listen to. It's a great peek into the inner workings of the world of TV and movie, and has many touching stories about growing up, learning life lessons and loving, along the way.
