Product Information

The Sunday Times bestselling memoir of a Hollywood icon

"A lovely autobiography, equal parts dish and pathos."--"Vanity Fair" "[Lowe] writes viscerally and insightfully...He looks back at the aberrant highs of his heart-throb days, the changing nature of stardom in Hollywood, the trade-off he has made between high life and home life, and the step-by-step effort behind his show business survival. He looked like the callowest kid in the "Outsiders" crew. Now he looks like the sturdiest of them all"--"The New York Times" "I really enjoyed it...Thoroughly entertaining: the Brat Pack years, the Wayne's World years, the Alcoholic Obscurity, the Glamorous Romances (Princess Stephanie of Monaco!), the Inevitable Rehab, and the Triumphant Comeback on The West Wing."--"Time Magazine" "[Lowe's] charming, honest, even affectionate memoir is the story of strong guts behind a strikingly handsome face...A book to recommend widely."--"Booklist"

Rob Lowe is a film and television actor and producer. He also is involved in politics. He lives with his wife and two sons in California.
