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.

    "Oh Rob Lowe..."

    I'm in my 40's so have known of Rob Lowe throughout my life. Known the heartthrob and the bad boy. Grew up and re met the funny Rob Lowe in Austin Powers and Parks and Rec. I think my favorite Rob Lowe thus far is Author Rob Lowe. Both books are wonderful. Heartfelt, honest and at many times so insightful. Do yourself a favor and listen to both. You won't be disappointed.

    "Who knew Rob Lowe was this good of a story teller"

    I drive everyday and so I am always looking for a good listen. I have now listened to both of Robs books. Both are excellent! Not just another, "Hollywood actor tell all". They have real substance and it is very well written and delivered. Rob does a great job with the narration as well. Can't wait for the third one, if you have another one in you, Mr. Lowe....?

    "Meh+"

    I enjoyed some of the stories a lot...but there was something missing for me. Sometimes it seemed to be trying too hard to read like a sagacious self help book, when really I just wanted to hear interesting stories about Rob Lowe and to hear what he thinks, rather than him extricating the moral lesson and banging me over the head with it. There were also times when the writing was a little heavy-handed and laborious. It sounds beautiful and is well written but might have been better suited for a literary work, rather than a memoir. However, it was interesting, and his voice, like the rest of him, is always sexy.

    "READ/LISTEN THIS BOOK"

    No matter your opinion of Rob Lowe, the actor/activist/one time drunk, do yourself a favor and read this autobiography. No Hollywood showcasing of glitz, glam, or glory here. Not only is it unflinchingly honest and integrative, it is full of the wisdom and perspective attained by those who've been half way to hell and back--then learned from it and grew.

    I read his first book a few years ago. It was interesting but less absorbing. One of the lines from that first one has always stuck with me (or words to this effect)--the subject was early career and movie stardom: No wonder nobody took me seriously....I was so pretty. This might sound narcissistic if taken out of context or at face value, and I don't bring it up at all as a criticism....but to demonstrate how such a simple statement can
    make evident a benign yet insightful (self) awareness.

    Both are delectable....so treat yourself.

    "Not as Good"

    I was disappointed in this book. I felt the first one was so natural and so relaxed. in this one I feel that Rob Lowe was trying too hard and that's not the casual, funny person from the first book

    "easy to pick and choose chapters"

    "This book left a lot to be desired."
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    This is a bragging book.


    Has Love Life turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No


    What didn’t you like about Rob Lowe’s performance?

    It's a bragging book about parties, the fact that he was invited to the Playboy mansion, conquests and how successful he has been. I do not want to be an actor so I don't need to know his techniques.


    Any additional comments?

    I do not read fiction. Using the words of Rob Lowe, I thought this book sucked!

    "Rob Lowe is a surprisingly good writer."

    This book was much much better than I expected. He is a surprisingly good writer, and his narration is excellent. The author comes across as human and humane. His respect and love for his wife alone is a testament to his maturity and decency.

    "Great listen and great storytelling."

    Thank you Rob Lowe for some wonderful stories on life, love and friendship. I found myself wanting to listen to this whenever I could (including cooking and in the shower:))! Would highly recommend this and it isn't necessary to have listened to his first book to enjoy this one.
