Rob Lowes story is incredibly interesting. I appreciate how he opened up about many details in his life.. He does a great job at narrating the book as well. Looking forward to his new book in April 2014
Buy it, you will not be disappointed.
Yes the biography was will written and read!!
Rob Lowe and his family
Rob and the Kenny's
When he fell in love with his wife
great biography was captured sine the first chapter.
I love Rob Lowes insight and the way he sees and explains events and people.
The narration done by Rob Lowe is fantastic. I felt as though I was a friend and we were sitting and reminiscing.
I love the auditioning part with FF Coppola for 'The Outsiders'
Inspirational, hilarious and "REAL"
The entire book was memorable, but I found overcoming barriers, roadblocks and walls was prevalent throughout the book. I was amazed at how many times he was denied but remained positive and optimistic, even at time accepting. This did not sway him from his purpose and dream.
His wife's support while he was in rehab. The dedication, support and unconditional love she displayed in flying hours to visit him. The depths of her commitment to him, her selflessness and faith, standing by his side, being his rock really touched my heart.
The struggles his mom endured. His unconditional love for her.
My 1980's Misperception - a pretty boy who got thru life on his looks. My 2014 New Understanding - a man of deep passion, talent, and resilience. I LOVED this Autobiography. I laughed uncontrollably and wept tears of empathy. His journey was moving, funny, inspirational and insightful. A brilliantly written and narrated book.
just like I think about Rob Lowe this was a fun easy listen. Not too deep, but not all fluff it really made me much more interested in him than I was when I started. Made me a fan.
Just a grandmother. Nothing special.
Intriguing, heartwarming, touched
Rob Lowe of course. The book depicted a true account of what occurred in his life and I enjoyed the fact that he was reading his own account.
Rob was able to put a unique personal spin to reading his own life. He is very talented in impersonating the stars and would do so when quoting their conversations. I cannot imagine reading this in a book and coming away from it as intuitive as I did by listening to him reading it himself.
This was 9 hours long. Although, I wanted to listen to it in one sitting it was physically impossible.
I came away from it having a respect for a man that was really depicted as a womanizer. After listening to it, I realized how grounded of a person he is and came away with a totally different outlook about him. I really felt he was a victim of his "good looks" and forced to engage in a lifestyle he really didn't want. When he was able to come to grips with a normal lifestyle, it changed him forever. Very good, I enjoyed it.
I liked this much more than I ever expected to. Listening to Rob Lowe tell his own story gave it depth & expression that I really enjoyed. I found myself looking forward to getting back in the car so I could pick up where the story left off (& that's a first!)
Rob Lowe's is a really talented writer & his stories were excellent. About his childhood, trying to make it as an actor, the challenges he faced.
He is much more than a pretty face...very humble, likeable, & down to earth.
I was stunned to hear that he was onboard the pre-9/11 trial run flight. I can't imagine what that must have felt like.
Give this a listen...it won't disappoint!
I have already recommended this book and will again. I was never a Rob Lowe "fan" really. I only knew the book existed because I saw it had a sample available when I first downloaded Audible. The sample hooked me immediately, he's lead an amazing life!
Wouldn't compare it to another book, but it reminded me of the movie, Forest Gump. Hard to believe he was connected to so many memorable moments in history.
His voice is wonderful and his mannerisms come through in his story telling.
Never would have sought out this book to read it, but I'm so glad I did!
I was fascinated by Rob's life stories and to hear him narrate the book it was like he was there with you. Wish I could chat with him about some of his life experiences.
The best part for me was the growth in his life and how he overcame his fears.
Of course one of the best parts of Rob's narration is how he can do the imitation of many of the people in his book. His reading is superb.
I almost did listen to this in one sitting. I am sad it is over and now I plan to watch the West Wing series.
I was never a Rob Lowe fan, per se, but after listening to the first chapter free on my Audible app I decided to purchase the book. This book was fantastic. The stories are highly entertaining and were just the stories you'd want to hear from a celebrity. He does a fantastic job narrating as well. I was sad when the book ended and quite often think to myself that I wish I could listen to more of this book right now.
