Publisher's Summary

Find out about his film debut at age five playing a puppy in one of his father's cult underground films, his attempt at becoming a comedian during his ill-fated stint on comedy show Saturday Night Live, how he burst onto the scene with his moving performance in Less than Zero and how he charmed Hollywood with his Oscar nominated turn as troubled funny man Charlie Chaplin.

With a life that has had more twists and turns than the plots of some of his acclaimed movies - Robert Downey Jr's journey from hell-raiser to Hollywood royalty - is a shocking, moving, funny, and inspirational one.

    "He Won Me Over"
    Where does Robert Downey, Jr. rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Definitely a top 3 of celebrity memoirs


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Of course him. Honesty, humor, interesting life. What's not to love?


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The life between Jessica Sarah Parker and Downey is so special.


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

    Yes, I practically did, save for a few interruptions from my own life's obligations.


    Any additional comments?

    I was never a fan of RD Jr but after seeing him on Ellen I thought I'd give his book a try. I have a totally different perspective of him now.
    PS I wish his son the best.

    "Incredible ... for today at least"

    What I find the most uplifting about Downey's story is his ability to find humility and sobriety for today. It is a theme he repeats over and over, and regardless of talent or life circumstance, one any addict must cling to in order to remain clean and sober. At least that's what my sponsor tells me. I'm so glad his talent is one we can continue to enjoy and be inspired by. This telling of his story, as well as it's performance on the audiobook, was very enjoyable!
