Top 10 book - Guide for Life

Fantastic read (although I recommend listening to the audiobook to catch the essence of the man behind the story). Masterclass in using one’s life to create a playbook on life. Easily top 10 book!

So So Good!

If I could give this book more than 5 stars I would!! Such a good read and even better on audio!!

Very disappointed

I was excited to receive this book I purchased very good like new condition. But when it arrived it didn't have the book jacket around the book very disappointed.

Love this book!

I loved this book. I liked reading about his past and pov. He has some great realizations in there. He also goes into detail about preparing for characters and I thought it was interesting.




Matthew writes with a very interesting style!! He's very honest, forthright and genuine regarding his life! I love him as a actor. Even more after reading his book! More than being a great actor and good honest author I think he is a decent man!

Not Enough Depth

I purchased this book to learn a little more about Matthew McConaughey interests. It never really went into great depth or detail about anything. Some stories that lacked any background to make them interesting. Sorry but NOT Alright, Alright, Alright


This is a must read! Matthew has a knack for storytelling. Real, raw and funny!

In the top 10!

This book has earned a place on the bookshelf for years to come. I loved every second of it especially all the witty remarks. He’s a true philosopher and one the world needs right now. Impressive book from an impressive man.

Great book!

Loved this book! The stories he told about his life were crazy! Love Matthew Mcconaughey even more now!
