2.0 out of 5 stars A huge disappointment
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.

'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.

The most important role for Rob Lowe is that of a father. He loves his two sons, Matthew and Johnowen with every being. What he divulges is his life as a father, and how it has affected his life. The story of 'Bigfoot' and the summer in the Northwest, the day his son, Matthew leaves for college, and Lowe's crying jags, all reveal a man who so loves his family.

No real gossip, but a peak into a night at the Playboy Mansion is enlightening. He shares a little of his political life. He campaigned for Arnold Schwarzenegger, and still has ties to Maria Shriver and her family. He could be called a Libertarian if he accepted a label. However, he tells us he has no party affiliations, he votes for the best candidate. He believes in less government and personal freedom. His good looks have often been in the way for some of the roles he wanted, but he learned to compensate and to fight his way for what he wanted.

Rob Lowe has a great wit, charm and ease within himself. His storytelling manner is filled with more insight than most celebrities. But once into this book, you realize this is more than just a pretty face. An actor, businessman, family man and husband are his achievements, and he lives for today.

4.0 out of 5 stars ENTERTAINING & INCREDIBLY INSPIRING!, 24 April 2014
This review is from: Love Life (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.

This review is from: Love Life (Audio CD)
"Love Life" is the second autobiographical book from
the brilliant American actor Rob Lowe.
If it is the title that grabs you, and makes you think
that the book will be all about Rob's love life then
perhaps you will be disappointed. There are a few small
accounts of past relationships, but Love Life is really
an account of how Rob has come through some early faux
pas in his life to be the father and family man that he
is today.
Whilst we do learn something about his escapades in the
Hot Tub at the Playboy Mansion, and what he learned from
Warren Beatty, there is so much more here. His views on
Hollywood, the highs and lows of his career and his love
for his wife and two sons shine through. The book is an
affirmation of life.

My purchase was for the Audio Book on 7 CD's, which runs
for over 7.5 hours of listening.
Well written and brilliantly told in his own voice,
topped off with some final music at the end, a short piano
piece composed and performed by his son, Jon-Owen Lowe.
5 stars.
