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.

    "Robe Lowe tells his story honestly"
    If you could sum up Love Life in three words, what would they be?

    awesome detailed stories and true feelings about how he felt


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Love Life?

    the story about the camping out with his family and the Big Foot moans and his children's reaction


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

    I love so many, I love all of his movies and still watch them all. He has such a great talent.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I was moved by the honesty about how a good looking man fears the athletic and jocks with this BODs in awesome and that is their great fear. I love the playboy mansion story of speaking with the girl who was with a football star and even with his great looks he was no competition to compete..


    Any additional comments?

    An awesome book and much better to have Rob read it to you while you listen.

    "Great Storyteller"
    Where does Love Life rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    On my list of favorites biographies.


    What does Rob Lowe bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    His voice is easy to listen to and he has so much emotion when talking about his kids.


    Any additional comments?

    It's interesting to listen to the people he has come across in his life and also to see the normal life a celebrity can lead. He truly is a great story teller.

    Story
    "Not as good as the first"

    I never would have read the first one of Rob Lowe's books but I did because my daughter told me I would like it. I loved that one. This one not so much -- I still think he is a great writer and his self-effacing manner in regards to describing his life is so delightful, so one might say "what is there not to love?" It's the story - he preaches a bit too much. He took a good thing and stretched it too thin on another attempt. I will always have a soft spot in my heart for him because I learned quickly in his first book that he is waaaay more than just a pretty face, but this one didn't measure up.

    Story
    "Better than the last...."
    What made the experience of listening to Love Life the most enjoyable?

    Rob Lowe truly let us into his private life. When he talked about his oldest son going to college, I felt like it was my daughter. He is an artist but also very human.


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

    Nothing that I have read compares to Love Life.


    Have you listened to any of Rob Lowe’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I more than enjoyed Rob Lowe's first book. His voice is very easy to listen to. Both had me laughing hysterically and crying like a baby. This is someone we can all relate to.


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

    Love Life, between the sheets and into the night!


    Any additional comments?

    Again Rob Lowe has welcomed us into his private life. I loved every minute of this book. His voice is so dynamic. I cried when he cried, I laughed when he laughed. Most of all I fell in love again.

    "I loved the first book book"
    What did you like best about Love Life? What did you like least?

    I loved Rob Lowe's first book, and couldn't wait to listen to this one. But I didn't find this one to have any of the charm of the first book.


    What was most disappointing about Rob Lowe’s story?

    I was bored to the point where I couldn't go on. There was so little substance.

    "EXCEEDED my expectations :)"

    This was sort of a random purchase. I'm not a huge Rob Lowe fan - although I like his work....just not a super fan or anything. But, I do love biographies, so I thought "whatever, I can return it if it's not good...." And then it was good. It was REALLY good.

    Funny, thought provoking and quote worthy.

    Definite recommend.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This is a great book. I highly recommend the Audible version because it is Rob Lowe telling his own story. The honesty and emotion is real and heartfelt.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Chapter 4. The story of his son going off to college.

    "entertaining, but not as good as his first one"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I preferred his first one, which was more Hollywood-anecdote laden


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    well they're not really "characters"...


    What about Rob Lowe’s performance did you like?

    nothing.. he's a really good reader of his own writing


    Any additional comments?

    there was more than I really care about his family and philosophies of childrearing.
