I rarely keep up with celebrities. Were it not for the recommendation of a friend I'd have never listened to this book. I don't know what I was expecting but what I received were some great stories and behind the scenes looks into, not only Rob's life but those whom he interacted with. I'm always the guy in my circle of friends who has a interesting story or strange fact for every situation. The stories i heard here will be retold many times, for they show how everyone is still just human.
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.
