Fantastic! Lowe is a great performer and actor but also a great WRITER! The stories are compelling and he tells them with humor, wit, warmth and heart.
First of all I love it when the author is also the narrator so kudos to Rob Lowe for putting his voice to his words. Secondly, it was hard to turn it off. His stories pull you in and you want more. I loved that he kept it dignified throughout while still telling such personal details. This will be one of those books I listen to once a year. Loved it.
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.
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.
