Book Description

8 April 2014
Actor Rob Lowe is an entertaining raconteur whose bestselling first book, 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 humour, 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 twenty 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.

Product Description

Review

'This isn't a kiss-and-tell memoir, rather a collection of honest, intelligent and engaging observations about all the things he loves most especially his wife Cheryl, his two sons and his job. Every bit as entertaining as his 2011 bestseller Stories I Only Tell My Friends, the book is brimming with juicy anecdotes including one about his heart-stopping debut in London s West End, an eye-opening night at the Playboy Mansion and a brief flirtation with Madonna' Hello!

'Love Life is full of wonderful and interesting stories with Rob once again speaking candidly about his life' --Entertainment Focus --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

4.0 out of 5 stars Creating Your Own Memories 8 April 2014
By prisrob TOP 50 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
'Creating your own memories will give you something to share with the rest of us,' is one of the many pieces of advice Rob Lowe shares with his two boys. "Just say yes to life, and get out there and make those memories," is exactly what Rob Lowe has done. In his new memoir, he shares his life with his family, his career, and the current issues that encompass his life. This is a book that flows well, and keeps your interest.

Rob Lowe is not afraid to share his foibles along with the assessment of his own strengths and what he has learned in the business he loves. His stories are filled with well connected friends and names we will all recognize. One of his most poignant stories is about his time in rehab for his alcoholism. Another one of the people with him, well known with a great athletic career going for him, could not keep away from drugs, finally breaks down in the throes of the love and acceptance the group shows him. His story is so sad and powerful that complete silence follows, tears flow, and we hope this man is helped. This kind of story telling is laced throughout the book. Rob Lowe is a writer, with tales to tell.

We hear about Rob's romance with his now wife, Sheryl, and what it took for him to recognize that she was the woman for him. The stories of his days as a young male on the prowl is interspersed with stories of his professional life and what he has learned in his business. Ron's Lowe loves his life as an actor, and he is not afraid to take chances with roles that come his way. Dr. Startz in 'Behind The Candelabra' is one role with many fascinating stories behind it. The television series he has been part of, and what television has given to the acting business, contains a lot of wisdom and insight.

4.0 out of 5 stars ENTERTAINING & INCREDIBLY INSPIRING! 24 April 2014
Format:Hardcover
Love Life by Rob Lowe follows his fascinating memoir Stories I Only Tell My Friends: An Autobiography which was published in 2011. With the kind of rave reviews it received which catapulted the book to the top of the bestseller list, I’m sure there is bound to be a sense of disappointment with his second book. Not because it is poorly written or that it does not have great content worth reading, but living up to a certain degree of expectation or hype is a difficult thing to follow through. On that count, many readers will be frustrated.

Love Life is an absorbing, stimulating and thought-provoking read. It is a confirmation of the gift that Rob Lowe is bestowed as an author. What is particularly fascinating, and mostly likely to endear with readers, is the fact that he is open about his life, and is not unduly worried to talk about it. He is not the type to confine himself or his family within a limited protective shell. He lives quite a normal life, the kind of life that humans are meant to live. He has seen his own fair share of failures and successes and he is not about to discuss them or admit his mistakes. Reading the book opens new eyes with which to see him as he really is.

What is plainly clear is that he knows what he is writing, talking or doing. He has learned and unlearned many things in life and shares them with profound abandon. What I find particularly interesting is the part about his family. He also offered an exciting look into the world of television and movie. Love Life by Rob Lowe is the lessons of life that the author learned during his life’s journey. It is informative, entertaining and incredibly inspiring.

2.0 out of 5 stars A huge disappointment 27 May 2014
By Zelda
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I was looking forward to reading this book as I thought his previous book was excellent. I found his stories in this book self serving and all in all a boring read.
