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.
