Inspiring to learn Downey's story. Even the challenging times in our lives have purpose and his life proves that. Met Robert twice and now actually understand why there is a glow when you are around him. If you like him as an actor, after listening to the book, you will admire Robert even more as a person. The book is entertaining and motivational.

A Roller Coaster Ride

I was amazed of RDJ's, one of my favorite actors to date; roller coaster ride through life. There are "highs", lows, and a lot of loops. He is a great example of how anyone can hit rock bottom more than once, claw their way out, reform their life, and really prosper in a way that you can see their light; RDJ's light is bright.

I've seen and grown up with most of the films he's been in and was blown away to learn about his personal life and all the crap he's been through.

The narrator is perfect for this bio and really helped to keep me engaged in the story. I'd definitely recommend this book to anyone who's a fan and not a fan of RDJ.
