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.

    "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

    "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.

    "Deceptive title"

    Having read his first book I was really looking forward to this but it was a let down. It's not a bad book but it's not great either. If this is your first read from this author you will probably be satisfied but I had higher expectations. There's not much about his love life really, a bit about his wife towards the very end, more about his kids. There are enough new stories but this could easily have been "stories I only tell my friends 2".

    "Not Quite As Good As His Other Book But Enjoyable."
    Where does Love Life rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I'd put it about 6th out of approximately 40, so a good read, but I gave it four stars as I was comparing it to Lowe's other book.


    What other book might you compare Love Life to and why?

    Lowe's other book, because it is similar territory with the same author, voice, etc.


    Which character – as performed by Rob Lowe – was your favorite?

    He does do impressions so this question is actually viable, but in this book, Rob Lowe.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Not necessarily but it was enjoyable.
