    "A fun, entertaining, adventure-filled memoir of McConaughey's life.  He is an amazing storyteller and creates a burning desire inside of you to pack your bags and see the world to find your soul and spirit, just as he did. He is very vulnerable in all the personal details he shares  about his family, life experiences, feelings and life lessons learned. I highly recommend the audio book. He narrates it himself and sometimes uses different voices for the real life characters in his many stories. I looked forward to hearing his stories every day and was a bit sad when it was all over. I give this book 5 stars."
