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.

    Story
    "Like having an entertaining friend over for dinner"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Love Life to be better than the print version?

    absolutely. I've read both of Lowe's books and listened to both of them and can't imagine why you would deny yourself the enjoyment of listening to him tell his stories.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Rob Lowe and his self-effacing humor, his love for his family, his naked humanity.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I like listening to him riff on the ridiculous, cherish his family and relationships, ponder quirky people.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Bon Vivant--a lover of the good life.


    Any additional comments?

    Listen to Stories I Only Tell My Friends, it's just as good, if not better.

    "great"

    first book is overall better but this still deserves 5 stars and shines in other areas. particularly useful for recovering alcoholics (he goes into these emotions intelligently) and aspiring actors. he is very relatable and as always, hilarious. basically rob Lowe is the fking man and you should read it if you like him, it's a treat.

    "Why do i love this guy so much"

    This is my second Rob Lowe audiobook and am so glad i bought it. He is very interesting - maybe surprisingly so. Not like other celeb books. Really seems like a cool dude.

    "I couldn't get past Ch 2"

    This one was just not that interesting. It is more of an autobiography. Narration sounded like dully reading a text.

    "Great author and narrator"

    The way he writes about his marriage, his wife, and his family is truly beautiful.

    His outlook on situations and life in general make you take a step back and ponder your own situations and life. Refreshing.

    Now I need to read his first book.

    "Another great one by Rob Lowe"

    I bought Rob Lowe's first book (Stories I Only Tell My Friends) and loved it. Before that I really didn't know much about him / much of his work. Hearing his stories, his thoughts and observances on life, and seeing more of his work has made him one of my favorite actors and people. I highly recommend both books. Hearing him tell it in the audiobooks is just awesome.

    "Bad title"

    The title is if you love life you'll love this book, not about his love life, which I thought until I read the synopsis. Which I didn't do until the end so it didn't meet my expectations.
    It's a follow up to his first book. Though in his first book I liked the punch lines, and this book fails to have them.

    "What a great surprise!"

    It was wonderful getting to know Rob's background and thought processes. I very much admire his commitment to raising his boys; and it seems he is equally committed to honoring & cherishing his wife as their life together continues. I'm watching the Grinder and can see why he chose this role. I also enjoyed hearing him narrate. He should do more audio recordings. New career?
