I just finished Rob Lowe's book and would like some suggestions on which autobiography to read next. Please don't recommend David McCollough or Anne Frank, I would really like some books along the lines of Lowe's, Howard Stern, Sammy Davis, etc. Please help

If you liked Rob Lowe's book, you will like Melissa Gilbert's book Prairie Tale. Rob did not talk much about Melissa in his book, but she goes into great detail about their relationship. For me, the entire book was fascinating. I wouldn't have bought it if I had not read Rob Lowe's book first, but I am glad I bought Prairie Tale.

Todd Bridges wrote a good autobiography. It's Killing Willis: From Diff'rent Strokes to the Mean Streets to the Life I Always Wanted

Thank you so much Sue!! It was excellent. Weird how her relationship with Rob is so serious and more substantial than his, while he made it seem like they dated for six months and barely knew each other. Odd. I loved her book even more than his. Please recommend more like them when you have time.

Melissa Sue Anderson wrote, I think, an even better autobiography than Melissa Gilbert. Jodie Sweetin aka Stephanie Tanner of the inane sitcom "Full House" fame wrote an excellent autobiography entitled "UnSweetined." I also loved Valerie Bertinelli's two autobiographies, "Losing It" and "Finding It.". Her former co-star Mackenzie Philips wrote a DAMN GOOD book as well.

"A Full House of Growing Pains" was written by the mother of Kirk and Candace Cameron of "Growing Pains" and inane "Full House" fame respectively and Candace Cameron has written an excellent book as well.

Thank you Dodge, which one should I read first? I'm reading someone else's suggestion at the moment, "Killing Willis" and it is EXCELLENT!! I highly recommend it. Could you put the ones you recommended in order of juiciest and/or best written so I know which ones to read first?

Good Morning Mojo..how happy are you this Sunday Morning
The Crossing, Living a Life Without Regret, by Lela Ashkarian, captures the essence of a young woman on the brink of disaster yet imbued with determination to more than survive, to thrive. From the embattled shores of Lebanon to the palm-studded beaches of Key West, Lela Ashkarian weaves a fascinating and inspiring story of courage, ambition, and transformation. The title symbolizes many successful crossings in her life-spiritual, emotional, financial, and physical-affording the reader an opportunity for self-examination in the mirror of her amazing life.

If you wan't to read the most interesting bio book on the market today, then you must read: "ARE WE DEAD YET?" Author is Johnny Savage. Once you atart reading this book filled with 100% true stories, you just cannot put it down! Book is extremely exciting. At times extremely sad, other times joyfyul, other times generating extreme anger in reader emotions. A MUST READ!
