Publisher's Summary

From one of the most celebrated and beloved comedians and actors of our time, George Lopez, comes this hilarious, touching, and often wacky chronicle of life after 50.

George Lopez just hit the half-century mark and the reset button on his life. Newly single and ready to embrace life, George was excited to turn 50. It would be a welcome new phase in his life, a chance to say goodbye to a decade that included a kidney transplant and a divorce. But when he looked around a room full of his childhood friends, all gathered to celebrate his birthday, many now bald or overweight, it suddenly hit him that he was old.

What happened? And more importantly, what was he going to do about it? George learns the hard way that when you turn 50, everything changes. You pull a muscle in your sleep. You avoid mirrors at all costs, and always, always wear a robe. You have to schedule an appointment to have sex. You have to dye your hair and buy a bathtub with a door.

As George learns to embrace life after 50, he invites listeners into his world, sharing the ups and downs of getting older - from his relationship with a much younger woman to a bizarre session with a pet psychic, to a trip behind the scenes at his tumultuous two years at Lopez Tonight, to an intimate look at his sacred ground, the golf course - and, for the first time, he reveals in moving detail, the story of the battle for his life against kidney disease.

I’m Not Gonna Lie will make you laugh at yourself, cry about yourself, and look at turning 50 in a way you never would’ve imagined - through the eyes of George Lopez.

Unfunny, boring, trash reading

Would not recommend to anyone. George is not funny. Most of it is complaining about his mess ups in his life. He clearly has family issues that he never got over, even though he's about 60. He tries to be funny at times but his internal anger gets in the way. I wasted money and time on this book. I wish I could get a refund but no one can ever get my time back. Buyer beware.

Funny and entertaining

I really enjoyed this book, especially listening to it read by George himself. He tells it like it is and I really enjoyed that. It's a good listen for moments you are just looking for a little entertainment.

Was not what I was expecting

was disappointed because it was not at all what I was expecting. I wanted a funnier book something that made me laugh like he does, but the book tended to be serious and not like the title leads you to believe!
