By Matthew McConaughey
This is not your regular memoir. It’s a whirlwind mix of stories and mystical reflections on life, taken from personal journals McConaughey has kept for 35 years.
He tells stories from his childhood that sometime seem to border on child abuse, but he prefers to remember them as “tough love” that taught him important values.
In his first movie role, as 22-year-old Wooderson in Dazed and Confused, he came up with the first three words he would say on film and they have stuck with him ever since: “alright, alright, alright.”
He made a name for himself in romantic comedies, then decided to go a different direction with his acting career, and he went almost two years without a part. But then he won an Oscar for best actor in Dallas Buyers Club.
The book continues with stories from his past, and aspirations for his future. If you’re a fan, you will want to read this.
