Raucous stories and outlaw wisdom from the Academy Award-winning actor
Fast paced light tale of the life of Matthew. I loved him in "True Detective S1" and "Interstellar". I also like what he said at the University speech and that's why I wanted to read his book. But Matthew is not an author and therefore the book is more like a vodka Russia rather than a refine 30 year old Scoth.

Epäsovinnaisen näyttelijän posketon omaelämäkerta on rakkauskirje elämälle. "McConaughey on lahjakas näyttelijä ja oiva kirjailija, mutta todellinen nero elämisessä." - kirjailija Lawrence Wright Matthew McConaughey tunnetaan intensiivisistä, palk...
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 * A Renaissance man on the big screen, McConaughey shows he is the same on the page. Mystical and spiritual but mostly just wonderful, Greenlights is an inspired memoir that celebrates the idea that it's the journey rather than the destination that will fulfill us. * Michael Connelly, author of Fair Warning * Written with great intensity and rare candor, Greenlights is a whirlwind of wisdom that's as singular and fervent as its author. Read the book, experience the behind-the-scenes adventures, then pursue your own greenlights full throttle. * Shaka Smart, head coach, mens basketball, The University of Texas at Austin * Greenlights is many different books at once: an entertaining autobiography, a delightful adventure story, a very funny comedy, a wise self-help guide, an inspiring argument for love and family, and a candid tale of spiritual and personal discovery. I cannot recommend it highly enough. * John Mackey, co-founder and CEO of Whole Foods Market, co-author of Conscious Leadership * A brilliant memoir that lays bare everything * The Times * A rollicking, contemplative trip * Financial Times * Greenlights is not a memoir, though it tells true stories from his life in chronological order. Nor is it 'an advice book'. It is 'an approach book', bringing together McConaughey's insights from 35 years of writing journals, and more of collecting bumper stickers. * Guardian * Mixing philosophy, 'teachable moments', self-help and Kerouac-inspired memoir, [Greenlights] takes in his remarkable career, finding love and stardom. * Sunday Independent * The Hollywood Star interprets himself. There is derring-do, dope, mayhem and mishaps. * The Times - The Perfect Audiobooks for Lockdown * Enjoyably quirky * Hello! * Gloriously bonkers * Guardian - Best Autobiographies and Memoirs of 2020 * a wild ride through his memories * Evening Standard * His not-quite-memoir offers a smrgsbord of life lessons, anecdotes . . . It would be hard to finish the book and not warm to its author. * The Observer *
