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.
This book was so moving and down to earth. I knew I always enjoyed Rob's acting but his simple yet eloquent way of putting his life in text was just wonderful! I will forever be his fan because of his candor and optimism! Thank you for letting us in your world Rob!
I heard this would be a good audio book to listen to on a podcast and they were right! Rob was really good, genuine, warm and funny, and oh, the voices. I loved his stories, there was so much I did not know about him, to me he was the actor from Parks & Recreation and The West Wing. I'm fascinated by his story of growing up and making his mark in Hollywood. I have a lot of respect for his life, his work, his struggles and his triumphs. Definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a good book.
It is easy to discount Mr Lowe in pre-rehab years, the grit of which besides the premise he will not truly share with you. But despite his smug condescension of those with a non-traditional family, Mr Lowe sees all such people as engaged in risky behavior on the verge of death from his Christian traditional marriage standing, the story does have an authenticity in that it is his truth. Never mind that others in his sphere are easily dismissed and often ridiculed with pretentious imitations or that Mr Lowe's ego is still the elep
