Matthew McConaughey delivers an entertaining, humorous, and often touching memoir that is everything you would expect with plenty of the unexpected mixed in. I highly recommend the audiobook version of this quick read!

GREENLIGHTS by Matthew McConaughey is fun, insightful, and filled with film facts for any McConaughey-o-phile. I listened to this autobiography/memoir, and loved hearing McConaughey’s sweet Texas drawl, and occasional tooth-whistle. He chuckles and laughs, loudly, at himself (as you will hear) about the ironies and lessons in his life. I was pulled into McConaughey’s storytelling (as he is an Oscar-winning actor, you know), and savored every bit of his life story. I want to hear more, but I will have to wait thirty years or so for Part Two. Thoroughly enjoyed? Greenlight! (You will get that reference when you listen to or read the book.)

Matthew made a list of his top ten goals in life shortly after finishing his first movie 'Dazed and Confused' and the first delivery of his iconic line: "Allright. Allright. Allright." The top three included becoming a dad, securing a good woman, and keeping his faith in God (I am paraphrasing). This book shows his journey as he achieves those goals and then goes onto cross yet another ambitious item off the list-- winning an Oscar. At times meandering and at others admirably pithy, this memoir includes memories as well as collected bumper stickers, Prescriptions, and Notes to Self. One of my favorite stories was the way 3-year-old Levi exposed his fear of marrying Camilla and sent him to Pastor Dave for a necessary lesson on the covenant of marriage. The two were married soon after. In my mind, audio is the best way to experience this title. I will chase down a print copy to get a look at any pictures I have missed.

I loved listening to this book! I laughed out loud and couldn’t wait to hear more of these larger than life lessons and tales. I do want to pick up a copy of the physical book to look at some of the referenced pictures and poetry. If you’d like an uplifting and positive focus I recommend this book.
