Stories I Only Tell My Friends by Rob Lowe

I wouldn't describe myself as a Rob Lowe fan, but after reading his autobiography, I definitely have some respect for him. As he writes about his teen star years and his wild 20s, I can tell that he has done some psychological work (and he has done this in rehab and also in weekly group therapy) about what has shaped him and his decisions. It's this thoughtfulness and reflection that I appreciated most about his story.

Also, near the end of the book, Lowe tells the sweetest story about his son, Johnowen, giving his beloved frog stuffed animal to President Clinton. Super sweet.
