Yes. It has a wide appeal
There were several stories throughout the book as the title alludes. Some are funny, some shocking and many sincerely touching. Having the author read it made it even better
The book made me laugh out loud several times
A great listen. Rob Lowe keeps you laughing and then has you thinking deeply about life right after. He has lots of great stories about his life in general, classic movies, celebrities, old Hollywood, new Hollywood and its well put together in a chronological tale about him coming to figure out who he is and what he really wants.
The performance is fantastic, I wish Rob Lowe could read all of my audiobooks to me. He does perfect impressions of famous celebrities, even a Walken! He always puts a great distinctive voice to every character in the book. The narration is smooth & comforting.
An insider's look inside Hollywood seen through the eyes of sensitive and witty Rob Lowe. He's charming and funny. A very nice book to listen to!
I never knew anything about Rob Lowe, so I was not sure if i should even spend the time and money on it..Glad I did,!!! Great story, I never once had a second thought that i should of not purchased it. Well written and well told and very much kept me engaged in the entire story. I hope he writes again, for he has a talent not many of us have.
The fact that Rob Lowe narrates this book really makes it extra enjoyable.
It feels like Rob is actually sitting down and telling you about himself. It gives a good complete life story without bragging.
When Cheryl breaks up with him, and he realizes he has hit rock bottom. I got a little choked up.
I really enjoyed this book. I loved how Rob impersonates voices of the other characters--he is really good at this. I also see Rob in a whole new light.
I feel truly fortunate for being allowed to hear the stories of Rob Lowe. I went into listening to his biography with some trepidation. I didn't know much of his past, hadn't watched much of him in The West Wing. In fact I know him best from his times on Parks and Recreation. "Ann Perkins!"
Regardless Rob chronicles his life in such a way that you feel your sitting in a room just having a conversation. It doesn't hurt that Rob has some incredible stories to tell from his times with the young Sheen's to his time visiting the President in the oval office.
I immensely enjoyed my time listening to Stories I Only Tell My Friends and think anyone with any interest in Rob or the trials and tribulations of actors will enjoy this as well.
I started paying attention to Lowe during Parks and Rec. A little late for a star that has been known for decades.
I was drawn into this book. I found his voice soothing and story enticing. His narration rings true. I believe him. No regrets buying it.
His struggles are easy to relate to and a good lesson in chasing your dreams.
surprisingly interesting; honest
I don't care much for hollywood people but Mr. Lowe definitely surprised me with his candid honesty and intelligence.
Yes, because it is narrated by the Author.
It felt honest.
I loved the part about the outsiders.
