    A teen idol at 15, an international icon and founder of the Brat Pack at 20, and one of Hollywood's top stars to this day, Rob Lowe chronicles his experiences. Never mean-spirited or salacious, Lowe delivers unexpected glimpses into his successes, disappointments, relationships, and one-of-a-kind encounters with people who shaped our world over the last 25 years. These stories are as entertaining as they are unforgettable.

    Overall

    The book opened with a very interesting anecdote on JFK Jr's decision point to marry Jacquelyn and their subsequent tragic death. I followed the subsequent chapters with interest because the stories are connected with public personas during my teen years. I also remember St Elmo's fire very vividly. However, the book "reads" more like a collection of articles on the lifestyle of the rich and famous or a written reality show in sections. Although I appreciate Rob's honesy about his problems with alcohol and challenges with the hollywood system, I find that the book lacks the depth and level of development that one might find in a memoir such as Angela's Ashes, or even that of Hillary Clinton's, Cathie Blak or Bob Schaeffer. Towards the middle, I also got somewhat jaded with the parade of famous sexy women he's had sex with - it almost felt like a subtle boasting of his conquests. Good enough book for a first publication though.
