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.

    "Very good book!"

    I really enjoyed listening to Rob Lowe. Although I've never followed his work, I know who he is. He comes across as smart thoughtful and humble. Truly enjoyable listen!

    "Narration makes the book but very Random"

    Love it when the author narrates their memoirs. Lowe's narration made the book for me. Note. Love Life is about Loving Life & not about his exploits. I enjoyed hearing his random tales sometimes connected to times I was watching his work. But it was a little too random for my taste. A story sometime was interrupted by another story that he may or may not get back to and I could never decipher a pattern or theme for the grouping.

    Rob Lowe is charming, smart, funny and a worthy writer to check out! I've already recommended this book to several people. Treat yourself to the audio version, you won't be disappointed.

    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.
