Summary
#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • Discover the life-changing memoir that has inspired millions of readers through the Academy Award®–winning actor’s unflinching honesty, unconventional wisdom, and lessons learned the hard way about living with greater satisfaction.

NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY THE GUARDIAN

“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

I’ve been in this life for fifty years, been trying to work out its riddle for forty-two, and been keeping diaries of clues to that riddle for the last thirty-five. 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 this book: an album, a record, a story of my life so far. This is fifty 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 realizing that the yellows and reds eventually turn green too.
 
Good luck.

This audiobook had me spellbound from minute one. It’s both an autobiography and a roadmap for life, punctuated by hilarious, thoughtful or adventurous anecdotes. I was surprised by Matthew’s depth, honesty (even in his dishonesty….you’ll have to listen to understand that thought!) and his humility. His hunger to taste everything life has to offer, to risk it all, how rich this parallel life was juxtaposed to his Hollywood movie star status. His notion of what marriage could do to him struck a chord with me. How that notion changed during his relationship with Camilla broke a barrier for me - I was reminded to live every day with intention. His spirituality, and how he looks at the world and other cultures could heal the darkest of hearts. There are so many gems in this book which are made all the more palatable by his infectious narration. I will give it a few days and listen to it all over again. #highlyrecommend

I thoroughly enjoyed this book! Being from Oklahoma is easy to connect with his words. I found many common phrasing oh, and receive many laughs. His voice is very relaxing and the speech pattern is very easy for me to relate to. I have a hunch, that alright alright alright came from the feeling of pulling up to a pasture party Bonfire keg combo with a lot of pretty girls.

What a great audio book! Narrated by the author, he had me laughing so much, I left my car running at the parking garage while listening with ear buds while walking to work. He had me crying about his joy of being a father. I love the thought he put into writing this book. Each of us may not make millions, but can understand his philosophy, maybe you already live by it or can get some words of wisdom from it. His book has pictures taken throughout his life and the audio has his verbal expressions, its yours to pick. It was for sure a greenlight to me!!

Interesting to hear about his past and how he actually took his dreams seriously to figure out what they meant. He’s definitely lived a full life and seen a lot of this world that many of us will never see. Very interesting to have a window into that wandering mindset. Great life lessons learned are passed on to readers. Know your identity and who you want to be and live it out well. He tells us to know our values and doesn’t shy away from occasionally mentioning his trust in God.

Wow, what a great listen! Took me by surprise, actually. Matthew has led such a remarkably interesting life, and to hear him tell it is even better than reading it; though I must confess, I would be reading it in his voice, regardless. His stories and recollections are captivating, and I often found myself waiting in the car until one was finished. The pace of the book moves seamlessly, once you get used to the wonky format, ie no real chapters, etc. Overall, I highly recommend this.

Was curious on this book. I typically do not care to read or listen to books from celebrities. But this intro caught my attention. Listened to the entire book in one day. It is soo good. Inspiring, honest, intriguing, and best of all ... his honesty to himself, family, and integrity. Hearing his life and determination motivates me and even reminded me to stop and reflect my own life happiness. Highly recommend this book. Oh bonus, listening to him read. Was probably the best part. He told it in his version. I love listening to the author read. I feel more meaning from it.

The intro’s pace and and straightforwardness was good but was not suitable when the first chapter began. It became tiresome after several minutes. I almost turned the book off but continued on. Eventually the tone and pace simmered down. What a relief. The rest of the book was entertaining with exception of moments that seemed like verbal barrages of tmi. I did like Matthew’s voice changes when he spoke in the second person’s character.

After listening to MM talk to three of my favourite podcasters for a couple of hours each and being blown away by his depth and intellect, I was sure I'd want to check this out. I love non-fiction and success stories anyway, but I've also always loved McConaughey in films. He's such a good storyteller, and that soothing Texas drawl is like the icing on the cake. So much wisdom, philosophy and inspiration in this book. Words to live by, to learn from and take into your own life, whatever you're trying to achieve. Matt's the real deal.

WTF are you waiting for? Ya'll HAVE to read or listen to this book. So raw, so genuine and such great nuggets of thought provoking questions, statements, quotes and bumper sticker words of wisdom. I laughed out loud to the point of almost peeing my pants, cried a bit and had some deep thinking throughout this entire book. Wherever you are at in this amazing journey of life, this one will help you re-center and truly make you question what is important, what makes us US and what the heck to do once we lock it in. Now I need to go on a road trip and sort some stuff out! Cheers to living our best life NOW!

This book is so funny and so real. I laughed and cried, played parts over and over. I just love the whole book. I felt such a connection and told my husband he had to read it or listen to it on tape like I did. Awesome is the best way I can describe it. Please write more!!!!

Definitely an artist in life and in the movies he has been part of. I enjoyed the view into his life, but he kept the mystery too.

Fantastic book, always been a big fan of his roles in movies but even bigger fan now, the best part was the narration by himself!

A true poet - of literature and of life. I couldn't put it down - inspiring, educational and, of course, entertaining.
