Description

On the heels of his New York Times bestselling Stories I Only Tell My Friends, Rob Lowe is back with an entertaining collection that “invites readers into his world with easy charm and disarming frankness” (Kirkus Reviews).

After the incredible response to his acclaimed bestseller, Stories I Only Tell My Friends, Rob Lowe was convinced to mine his experiences for even more stories. The result is Love Life, a memoir about men and women, actors and producers, art and commerce, fathers and sons, movies and TV, addiction and recovery, sex and love. Among the adventures he describes in these pages are:

· His visit, as a young man, to Hugh Hefner’s Playboy Mansion, where the naïve actor made a surprising discovery in the hot tub.
· The time, as a boy growing up in Malibu, he discovered a vibrator belonging to his best friend’s mother.
· What it’s like to be the star and producer of a flop TV show.
· How an actor prepares, for Californification, Parks and Recreation, and numerous other roles.
· His hilarious account of coaching a kid’s basketball team dominated by helicopter parents.
· How his great, great, great, great, great grandfather may have inspired everything from his love of The West Wing to his taste in classic American architecture.
· His first visit to college, with his son, who is going to receive the education his father never got.
· The time a major movie star stole his girlfriend.

Linked by common themes and his philosophical perspective on love—and life—Lowe’s writing “is loaded with showbiz anecdotes, self-deprecating tales, and has a general sweetness” (New York Post).

    No offense to the author, but overall this is a disappointment. Stories I Only Tell My Friends was wonderful, Love Life, not so much. All said, Rob is definitely a man who loves life - and that - unto itself makes this purchase less painful.
  • Not what I expected after his Stories book

    Philosophical, broad, rambling. The jolt of the mimosa at the end was a quick peak and fleeting return to substance and meaning. I'm confused now. Is ego a major factor in the writing of this book or did he have something to say that just didn't connect with me? Maybe it's me. I'm happy for Rob that he loves his life.
  • Mediocre follow up

    The first book was much better. This book spends a lot of time recounting stories with his kids, agents, etc. the first book was gripping, especially everything about making of The Outsiders. Like I said, it's ok but not great.

    I have been crazy about Rob Lowe since About Last Night. I read his other books, which were good. This is a preachy, boring book with little substance! It should be titled, Rob Lowe preaches about how he loves life and himself.
  • Meeting and Reading.

    I read Rob Lowes first book which was great but to actually meet him in person and have him sign his new book was amazing. He was as beautiful as Tean Beat and Tiger Beat covers and to top it off was approachable and grateful for the people at the signing. To me I can instatantly lose feelings or admiration for someone if they act as though they are better then me or too cool ot be bothered. The book Love Life is a great easy read of a teen idol so many of us grew up with. Now I am a bigger fan!!!!
