Reseña del editor
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:
-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
-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.

During the eighties, Lowe was at least as famous for being a litigation as he was for his acting. In fact, although he chooses not to mention it in "Love Life," a certain video of him in bed with a very young lady caused such scandal that it threatened to bring an early end to his career. Such a story is hardly worth mention today, but at the time it was a MASSIVE deal. I'm just as certain that a number of people will pick this title up hoping for a tell-all sexploits tome as I am that the choice of the title was no accident. Anyone looking for salacious details of Hollywood debauchery will need to renew their hunt elsewhere. While Lowe doesn't whitewash his past, or deny it in any way, he apparently respects both his wife and his children too much to drag them through the sordid details of his early exploits
So what exactly does the reader get that makes "Love Life" worth the cover price? For openers, fans of Rob Lowe will find him to be surprisingly candid and open about the life mistakes he has made in life that in many ways were the underlying causes of his formerly notorious reputation. He is equally forthcoming in sharing the lessons he learned in the process of recovery from his addictive demons. As a result, though some may start this book hoping to titter at the immaturities of the Rich and Famous, those that continue to read may just come away either inspired or learning things that will help them tosurvive their own daily struggles.
Although the "real" Rob Lowe is no therapist, he has far more depth than the "super-creepy Rob Lowe" he currently plays in satellite tv ads. This is a good thing. After finishing either of his two books you almost feel that Lowe is in fact, a good family friend - warts and all. And THAT is a very good thing.
Expect it to read like a conversation with a parent from your workplace or neighborhood except for supercharged with heavyweights from the past. Accounting for life lessons, incredible luck, disappointment, heart break, naivete, dealing with grown-ups, and being a grown up. After incredible amounts of self absorption, Rob (somehow) realizes he is on the highway to hell (pulls his head out of his ass) and eventually with introspection, listening to his inner voice and those around him, take his life back. Lessons in people, observation, self discipline, and perserverance make this a valuable return on your time.
