Publisher's Summary

Actor, producer, and New York Times best-selling author Rob Lowe offers up a collection of personal stories in an honest and celebratory memoir about men and women, art and commerce, fathers and sons, addiction and recovery, and sex and love.

Actor Rob Lowe is an entertaining raconteur whose best-selling first audiobook, Stories I Only Tell My Friends: An Autobiography, was hailed as "self-deprecatingly funny" (The New York Times) and "thoroughly entertaining" (Time) and earned the author the cover of Vanity Fair.

Love Life serves up another delicious selection of intimate stories and observations from Lowe's life, told with humor, warmth, and brutal honesty. After writing his acclaimed debut effort, Lowe felt he had more stories to share and many more friends to introduce. The result is a touching memoir about the business and craft of acting, the pitfalls of success, family, love, and much more.

Among the many adventures Lowe describes in Love Life are what it's like in the trenches as both the star and producer of a flop TV show; how a visit, as a 20-year-old, to Hugh Hefner's Playboy Mansion led to a surprise in the hot tub; how an actor prepares for a role, as well as the practical, boots-on-the-ground details no drama or film school would ever teach you. You'll delight at the hilarious account of the time a major movie star stole his girlfriend, and of coaching a kid's basketball team dominated by omnipresent helicopter parents. The story of coming to terms with his son's departure to college for the education his father never got will touch anyone with a family.

Building on Stories I Only Tell My Friends, Love Life is the literary equivalent of returning to a favorite restaurant to savor a completely different, delicious new dish. If you love life, you'll love this audiobook.

    "I'm a fan!"

    I am a big Rob Lowe fan. I enjoyed his first book as well as this one. I love hearing about his life and the behind the scenes stuff. I especially liked that he read it. I felt like we where hanging out and he was telling me stories from his life. I enjoyed it very much.

    "Different from his first book, but entertaining"

    This book had a different tone and skipped around through the various events in his life, but I still found it moving and an entertaining listen.

    "Rent it"

    I heard his interview on NPR and thought I would check out his story. It was not as entertaining as the characters he plays in films and TV. Skip the cost and rent it from the library.

    "Totally underestimated how good this book could be"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Love Life to be better than the print version?

    Loved this book. The natural writing method that Rob uses in makes this book a pleasure to listen to. My long commutes to work were a pleasure with Rob telling me the life lessons that he has learned. Its funny, sad, serious and happy. Thanks so much for a great book. The music accompaniment that his son composed was a great bonus.
