This audiobook read by the author is wonderful! McConaughey writes well and deeply about his own history and his thoughts. Also - he is a gifted performer, and listening to him is so engaging that it is hard to stop. I'm sure the physical book is good - but the audiobook is terrific.

One of the best (and quite unconventional) autobiography I have read. Very fresh, funny and matches exactly to the author :)

I haven't read a celebrity book in decades. Generally, I find anything written by celebrities and politicians to be self-promoting bullshit. They don't make it on my to-read list often. I'm not completely sure how this book made it there.

I'm pleased to report nothing has changed my opinion. This got by the dreaded DNF and earned a couple of stars for the audacious nature of Mr. McConaughey's sincere belief that he is a boot-strappy kind of self-made man. That was super hilarious.
