Rob Lowe's book is fascinating. It was like looking back through your life hearing an up close and personal view of things you watched from a distance. His reading of his life story kept me captivated, and my mind never wandered while I listened to this book. I would definitely recommend it to others!
I think it was his voice, it was mesmerizing and you could actually see the events unfolding as he described them. His impressions of others was right on.
I both laughed and cried. It was one of the best audible books I have listened to. You felt you were right there watching the events unfold.
I would give this book 10 stars!
I can't compare because I didn't read the print version I really enjoyed the audible version though
The story he was telling about getting the part on the outsiders and all the different things that they had to go through
I don't really have an opinion on this
I really enjoyed this book and I have been recommending it to my friends thanks for the good stories Rob Lowe!!
Loved the audio version of this book. Rob Lowe does an excellent job narrating his book.
The passion the author conveys telling the story.
His first movie "The Outsiders"
Highly recommend. This was my first audible book, not sure others will live up to my expectations after this book!
Nothing to compare it to honestly. I normally do not like autobiographies.
Hearing the stories of him as a kid, growing up with the other future brat pack members, story of meeting Martin Sheen for the first time.
I normally only listen during my commute, but i found myself taking any opportunity I could to listen.

One of the most surprising listens I have had. I have long been a fan of Rob Lowe's work, and knew a little of his biography, but this book had me surprised even when listening to stories I thought I already knew. Having Lowe read the audiobook is fabulous, not simply because his voice is so compelling, but because it really does feel as if he is telling the listener, his friend, stories from his life and work.
The content? I know it sounds silly, but Lowe has many poignant stories that concern other famous persons and historical figures; stories that did not might have made the news on the surface level, but Lowe uncovers a human back story that is compelling.
The book has both highs and lows. I did giggle a few times- especially at tales of meeting Martin Sheen for the first time and filming The Outsiders- and many moments compelled a more serious emotional reaction.
A quick listen that had me eating more when it was over. Well-read and compelling. The title can easily be listened to in sections if needed.
I loved hearing the stories of behind the scenes
Loved that it was narrated by the author
If you are fascinated by the tales of Hollywood---this is for you. Watching these characters grow up --truly fun to see how it all started. Feels like Rob is telling you his story over dinner.
Tell us about yourself!
This book reminds me a bit of the HBO Series Entourage. In fact, it made me notice how well written that series was!
Coming of age in the 80's I did not have hang that iconic poster of Rob Lowe in the white t-shirt exposing his stomach up on my bedroom wall but I never forgot it, either. I appreciated how down-to-earth his telling of his story is. You really do get a feeling for the whole person behind that gorgeous face. Good job, Rob!
Yes - It's always fun to hear an autobio told by the biographer - plus Mr. Lowe's impressions of some great icons are first class.
Hmmm we'll I'm partial to the Brat Pack Rob Lowe or his Sam Seaborn era but I am now more partial to the shy yet fearless child Rob depicts who is driven by his dream of becoming an actor and am very impressed with the father, friend, husband, philanthropist and genuine person Rob Lowe is.
Next on my list is Nightmares & Dreamscapes, Volume I - also read by Rob Lowe among others.
Wow! Mr. Lowe's ability to write soul searching stories, past and present, that not only entertain but remind you of what's important in life, is a true gift. The stories of relationships or acquaintances throughout his life are concerned with how or why they affected his person and the significance these people had on his life. Rob has a beautiful way of tying encounters and experiences of his early years to the present day person he has become. Although deep it is hularious as well!
Thank you for sharing your journey and life Mr. Rob Lowe! A truely inspiring book that I would recommend to anyone!
