Publisher Description

Actor Rob Lowe's memoir presents a wryly funny and surprisingly moving account of an extraordinary life lived almost entirely in the public eye.

A teen idol at fifteen, an international icon and founder of the Brat Pack at twenty, and one of Hollywood's top stars to this day, Rob Lowe chronicles his experiences as a painfully misunderstood child actor in Ohio uprooted to the wild counterculture of mid-seventies Malibu, where he embarked on his unrelenting pursuit of a career in Hollywood.

The Outsiders placed Lowe at the birth of the modern youth movement in the entertainment industry. During his time on The West Wing, he witnessed the surreal nexus of show business and politics both on the set and in the actual White House. And in between are deft and humorous stories of the wild excesses that marked the eighties, leading to his quest for family and sobriety.

Never mean-spirited or salacious, Lowe delivers unexpected glimpses into his successes, disappointments, relationships, and one-of-a-kind encounters with people who shaped our world over the last twenty-five years. Rob Lowe's New York Times bestselling autobiography, Stories I Only Tell My Friends, shares tales that are as entertaining as they are unforgettable.

Incredible True Stories.

Unbelievably enthralling and utterly entertaining. Mostly just unbelievable. Rob Lowe’s life has been nothing if not eventful as he seems to have perfected the art of being in the right place at the right time. If you have any interest in great stories, the entertainment industry or fascinating people in general this book is a must. I read the preview and was immediately sold. You will be too.

Stories already in the tabloids

This is more a story of Lowe's ego and how to further stroke it. There were very few moments of overcoming trials in life. It was more about who he knows, what great thing came his way, and bragging. Quite a boor with no substance.

A Great Read

I enjoyed the stories woven with beautiful sentiments and respect to the people involved and the lessons learned. I appreciate the peak into a public life that I have grown up enjoying, and a private life that I didn’t know about. Thank you, Rob Lowe, for being real, being courageously vulnerable, and reminding me that each of us has a story.
