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
    "Further proof that he's still worthy"

    I have always been a fan, since I saw The Outsider's at 10. IMO his work has been underappreciated, the performance in this audio version further proof of his talent. In his first book we got a glimpse into the man, this time we get to go deeper. I was listening in a fairly quiet situation and had to struggle the laughter on more than one occasion and I shed tears at times as well. Worth the read/listen

    "Insightful"

    I enjoyed getting a peek into Rob Lowe as a person and not what one assumes when you see the acting only.

    Story
    "Warning to all parents of kids leaving home for college"

    This book was surprisingly poignant and emotional ... I found myself crying in the most inopportune times (in traffic... on a plane... running), as the underlying love letter to Lowe's son permeates these slivers of stories of a life fully lived. So be wary, parents of kids heading to college. This is a joyful and painful reflection on this hard and lovely journey as parents of children to parents of adults.
