A collection of personal writings by the actor and producer discusses such topics as his work on a flop television show, an actor's preparation exercises, and his experiences while coaching a kids' basketball team dominated by omnipresent helicopter parents.

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.
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 humor, 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.
Building on "Stories I Only Tell My Friends, Love Life" is the literary equivalent of returning to a favorite restaurant to savor a completely different, delicious new dish. If you love life, you'll love this book.

I haven't yet had the time to read it or even start it. I am currently reading another of his books but will get to this one after. I like his style of writing and his point of view. I would recommend it to anyone who has an interest in Rob Lowe or the Hollywood scene. It is done in good taste and has all the bells and whistles that may attract those of us who like hearing about Hollywood and those who live it.
