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.
Being of the same age as Rob Lowe, I watched his rise, missteps and recovery as portrayed in the public eye. I am so very glad I decided to listen to his tell of redemption in his own voice; it was heartbreaking, sweet and jubilant. I hope for his continued success.
As an 80s girl, I enjoyed Rob Lowe's work. Through this book we visit it all, and much more, from his perspective. It is very well written and enjoyable. Not only do I like him even more than ever, I nearly started the book over again just to make sure I didn't miss a single thing.
Love to listen and walk or run and knit, knit knit
I didn't read the print version. However, what can be better than listening to a read by the author!
A glimpse into his life was compelling and for me honest and true.
Everything. There is much more to Rob Lowe than your image of him as a Hollywood star.
His love for his wife and children!
I love self improvement books, bios, memiors, educational! I love to learn about other cultures, science, and history. I am dating someone with kids, so I am also seeking helpful books on how to raise kids.
Rob Lowe obviously, but it was so interesting how his life intertwined with so many other Hollywood stars.
Maybe when he brought a princess home and his crazy mom had a meltdown.
I love how vulnerable he let himself be in this book. He tells it all.
really enjoyed this autobiography. while it can be cliche at times, it's also very honest and raw. Mr. Lowe does not sugarcoat his behavior or how things happened. it was this honesty and plain descriptions that were intriguing Nd made me like him as a human.
The story is interesting as Rob recounts his interesting encounters and experiences as a young actor and then how his story unfolds into a beautiful love story and mature career. I also really enjoyed the impersonations and fun then Rob added to the book by narrating.
