Overview

Love Life by Rob Lowe

Actor, producer, and New York Times bestselling 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 son, addiction and recovery, and sex and love.

Rob Low is back with stories he only tells his best friends.

When Rob Lowe’s first book was published in 2011, he received the kind of rapturous reviews that writers dream of and rocketed to the top of the bestseller list. Now, in Love Life, he expands his scope, using stories and observations from his life in a poignant and humorous series of true tales about men and women, art and commerce, fathers and sons, addiction and recovery, and sex and love.

In Love Life, you will find stories about:

-Kissing unexpectedly
-The secrets they don't teach you in acting school
-His great-great-great-great-great grandfather's role in the American Revolution
-Parks and Recreation, Behind the Candelabra, and Californication
-Trying to coach a kids' basketball team dominated by helicopter parents
-The hot tub at the Playboy mansion
-Starring in and producting a flop TV series
-Camping at Sea World
-Playing saxophone for President Bill Clinton
-The first journey to college with his son
-Warren Beatty
-The benefits of marriage

Throughout this entertaining book, you will find yourself in the presence of a master raconteur, a multi-talented performer whose love for life is as intriguing as his love life.

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.

I had read Rob Lowe's first book when it came out and then saw him promoting this book on TV. This book was really well written, easy to read and enjoyable. Rob tells stories about his career and family and why he has made the choices he has. Very insightful. Rob isn't just another pretty face - he has a great mind and shares some of the things he has learned in life in this book.

This was a good book, but it's not a scandalous kiss and tell book. The love life he's referring to is his wife, who he obviously adores (lucky lady). Still has good stories about the past and about being a father and the challenges of acting. Plus, he refers to Dayton, Ohio, numerous times, which is close to where I live. :)

Rob Lowe has seen it all and done it all. He’s been to the height of fame, he has experienced the fall from fame, he has been through image-destroying scandals, and he has survived it all to come out on top. His private stories told in Love Life are very interesting. Rob is very open about his life and the stories are both honest and inspirational, with just the right touch of humor.

I love how Rob takes you through different eras of his life and the reader gets peak into the past and read about a great story. History of hollywood,his personal life orjust whatwas going on inthe world at that time. No matter a fabulous read!!!

He's just adorable....in looks and in personality. Self-deprecating (although he's not afraid to remind you of his acclaimed acting), sweet and very thoughtful. I preferred his first book, but this one is a solid follow-up. Keep 'em coming Rob!!

So first to set expectations…. this book is less about Rob Lowe's "Love Life" than an instruction from him for you to "love life." For those looking for juicy tidbits about his romantic or sexual escapades you may be disappointed. There are certainly a few of those, yes, but most of the book is not focused on them. Lowe's first book Stories I Only Tell My Friends was wonderful. After that, this book is a bit of a let down. There are some wonderful parts to it, and some less wonderful. It felt a little all over the place with no clear logic as to what stories he included in the book and why in this particular order. In many places he throws around the names of his celebrity friends and co-workers and then in other stories - some of the ones in which you'd most want to know "who" he is writing about- he leaves them unnamed. Overall, the book does give you insight in Rob's life as a happily married man, involved father, and successful actor. There are some great moments about his appreciation for life and thoughts to how we can all enjoy and appreciate our own lives more. As a fan, I enjoyed the book but felt it could have used a better editing job to craft it into something even better than it is and as well done as his first one.

I read the first book by Rob Lowe and it was far better than this one. I thought he went into too much detail at times making it hard to follow. Was disappointed.
