Reader's Annotation: Rob Lowe uses humor and personality to show us his life
Summary: Lowe takes the reader on a journey from his humble beginnings in Ohio through his tumultuous years as a Hollywood star and finally to his his beginnings on West Wing, he brings humor and great storytelling to let you into his world.
My Evaluation: I fell in love with Rob Lowe on the West Wing (though I knew who he was before than, hello Austin Powers :)) so when I heard he was writing a book, I couldn't wait to read it. It completely lived up to my expectations. There was only one thing I didn't really like and that was Rob expected the reader to know every detail (like his escapade with an underage girl). He hints at things but never fully explains them. After reading this book, I have gained even more respect for him, both as an actor and as a human being.
