    Description

    From the Academy Award-winning actor, an unconventional memoir filled with raucous stories, outlaw wisdom and lessons learned the hard way about living with greater satisfaction.

    I've been in this life for 50 years, been trying to work out its riddle for 42 and been keeping diaries of clues to that riddle for the last 35. Notes about successes and failures, joys and sorrows, things that made me marvel and things that made me laugh out loud. How to be fair. How to have less stress. How to have fun. How to hurt people less. How to get hurt less. How to be a good man. How to have meaning in life. How to be more me.  

    Recently, I worked up the courage to sit down with those diaries. I found stories I experienced, lessons I learned and forgot, poems, prayers, prescriptions, beliefs about what matters, some great photographs and a whole bunch of bumper stickers. I found a reliable theme, an approach to living that gave me more satisfaction, at the time, and still: if you know how and when, to deal with life's challenges - how to get relative with the inevitable - you can enjoy a state of success I call 'catching greenlights'. So I took a one way ticket to the desert and wrote what you hold now: an album, a record, a story of my life so far. This is 50 years of my sights and seens, felts and figured outs, cools and shamefuls. Graces, truths and beauties of brutality. Getting away withs, getting caughts and getting wets while trying to dance between the raindrops. 

    Hopefully, it's medicine that tastes good, a couple of aspirin instead of the infirmary, a spaceship to Mars without needing your pilot's license, going to church without having to be born again and laughing through the tears. It's a love letter. To life.  

    It's also a guide to catching more greenlights - and to realising that the yellows and reds eventually turn green, too.   

    Good luck.

    Commentaires

    "Unflinchingly honest and remarkably candid, Matthew McConaughey's book invites us to grapple with the lessons of his life as he did - and to see that the point was never to win, but to understand." (Mark Manson, author of The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck

    "McConaughey is a talented actor and a fine writer, but a total genius at living. He attacks life with an exhilarating ferocity. This is a wildly unexpected and delightful book you can't just read, you have to experience." (Lawrence Wright, author of The End of October

    "It shouldn't surprise you that this book is good, but it will surprise you just how good it is. Wise and entertaining, this is an inspiring memoir and how-to from one of the great outlaw philosophers and artists of our time." (Ryan Holiday, author of The Daily Stoic

    This book is pure delight

    I really love Matthew McConaughey and this book made me love him even more. This window into his life's very touching, interesting and full of beautiful lessons. His voice and laugh made the book even more enjoyable. I wish he would write more and especially use his voice to read more audiobooks. This book is refreshing, enjoyable, light and beautiful. It helps you understand the importance of going with the flow and having faith in yourself and in life. I really loved it.

    Rarely, we ever see something special as this

    I may be speaking of myself, but I truly believe that Matthew McConaughey has gifted us with something that we rarely ever see something such as this.

    It is 100% relative of the struggles that each and every one of us face.

    GREENLIGHT...!!!

    Reading this Book from India

    I loved this book for being genuine as possible without hiding things out of his life. It's Mathew McConaughey in his other side

    True Story...

    I love it! So many coaches and experts have said “dont do it this way or that way” and the law of attraction and positive thinking has an endless amount of books on the topic in every shelf; but this right here- SUMS IT ALL UP! Thank you so much for the realness in each story! The funny, sarcastic, authentic and touching memories of Mathews life simply hugged me and encouraged me on my way. It reminded me that, “we got this” and that “we can if we really want it” we just have to “believe” what a fun read! I had to play it again :) so in tune and in touch with reality!

    Note to self. (you will understand later)

    What I took from this book is don't let the world tell you who you'll play. Know yourself. know your role. build it. believe it. Play it. All the way.
    Thanks Matthew.

    Exceeded my expectiation

    A highly enjoyable listen. A book that must be listened with the author narrating it himself. Might not be as effective if reading it yourself but I will still recommend it either way.

    Absolutely brilliant

    Highly recommended to everyone. This book will make you laugh out loud, chuckle with familiarity and pull at your heartstrings. It will even make you shed a tear ( the parrot!). But most of all it will make you WANT to LIVE life! Thanks to the author for sharing his story.

    Just another memoir

    I never had any idea what this book has to offer. But on listening to it,what impressed me most was the way the author Matthew McConaughey catches and delivers the accent of various people whom he came across in his life . It was actually very good to listen to as an audiobook but would it be equally so if it had been the book in print, I'm not so sure. The author uses too many similies and metaphors repeatedly which gets tiring most times. It's interesting to catch glimpses of the actor's life but nothing sounded exclusive or unique. At best it can be said that Matthew McConaughey is a talented,lucky man who has had a good life.

    Alright, alright, alright, McConaughey!

    I really enjoyed this audio book. I think the fact that it was told first hand by the author itself made it so much more special than reading a book... captivating and enjoyable! ;-)

    Wow

    I loved it. Didn't struggle to finish. The art of telling stories. Yes he has a talent but oh gosh he telling his own story is beautiful art. I loved all the lessons and I am inspired.

    Unfasstbar interessant und inspirierend

    Matthew McConaughey ist ein fantastischer Sprecher dem ich stundenlang gebannt zu gören konnte. Sein Geschichte ist fazinierend und seine Einstellung zum Leben inspirierend. Klare Weiterempfehlung!
