Actor Rob Lowe is comfortable, confiding, and charming in this follow-up to his well-received 2011 autobiography, STORIES I ONLY TELL MY FRIENDS. With his pleasant voice and conversational delivery style, Lowe shares stories about his creative successes and failures, his marriage, fatherhood, and his own personal growth. There's some showbiz name-dropping, a smattering of impressions of fellow actors and friends (including Lowe's “Bigfoot shriek,” which he employed to scare his boys on a camping trip), and plenty of examples of both privilege and humility. Listeners will be engaged, and a gasp-worthy revelation in the last 20 minutes demonstrates clearly just how much Lowe has succeeded in making us care. J.M.D. © AudioFile 2014, Portland, Maine
