I was intrigued to read his story, and I had no clue he had so many amazing experiences! If you have read the book, you know that I am not just talking about the typical "stars are handed the world" type of experiences, but really touching things.
I grew up with the Outsiders and that whole crew, so I loved hearing all about those times and his connection to Emilio Estevez who I have always loved! I have since ordered the later version of the movie The Outsiders so I can see the scenes Rob was so disappointed about them cutting from the original version.
Thank you for sharing your stories, Rob!
loved the book. I listen to it at work and it's interesting and engaging enough to be entertained, but easy enough to listen to while I multi task. and who wouldn't love listening to Rob Lowe's voice while you work??!!
Finished it pretty quickly. Enjoyed Lowe's honesty and the voices he did to mimic a certain character. Happy that he found what he was looking for.
From a child of the 80's, I grew up watching movies of Rob's and he graced my walls via posters.
That being said this book was written from his standpoint and only as an adult can you appreciate reality and truth, raw truth.
His life was full of the same things you and I experience, just with different outcomes.
The hurts and disappointments, the joy and the struggles. The taunting from other kids and his triumphs are what we all go through.
His sheet desire and tenacity to achieve his goals is all laid out here and I can't wait to listen to his next book.
It was nice to hear him read his own stories; it felt as if he were there sharing them with you.
I would recommend to anyone who enjoyed his tv shows or films; and who is interested in knowing the truth behind the magazine covers.
I was surprised at how much I enjoyed this book. As a child of the 80's I could remember where I was when Rob describes many of the events in the book and I remember seeing him in many of the projects he talks about.
I have been telling everyone what a great storyteller he is and I would recommend this book to anyone who's a Gen-Xer or even heard of Rob!
Take the time to be surprised by a wonderful story teller.
Rob Lowe has shared with us, his story. I certainly have a new respect for him as a writer and as a human being, husband and father.
