Stories I Only Tell My Friends: An Autobiography

Stories I Only Tell My Friends: An Autobiography - Rob Lowe Mr. Lowe’s autobiography starts out as a festive Forrest Gump jaunt through various icons of the ‘70s and ‘80s. Just as I feared my time had been wasted with Mr. Lowe’s chance encounters that bordered on precious, he changes his life’s direction towards something of meaning. First he meets the young lady that would become his wife, and then begins his recovery from addiction. The last quarter of the book is devoted to his realigned priorities, the birth of his marriage and children, and his career now built on the platform of acceptance. Ultimately, Mr. Lowe shows us how his life goes from a series of pleasant, humorous anecdote, to a dark place where he reaches for help, to a story of experience, strength and hope.
