Looking for an enjoyable book to read during the holidays? I loved this book. I don’t typically read biographies and am not sure why I read this one. Maybe because it is Matthew McConaughey. I have been a fan for years. It is a short memoir that provides plenty of laughs.

What do I love about this book? Omigosh this guy can tell a story! And he is funny! Mathew kept diaries for years and regales us with stories from his childhood and brings us to today. He shares with us pivotal moments that led to his success and even his failures. I laughed, I cried, I nodded my head in agreement! What I loved about this book is that he is real. Very real.

Although he did not intend this to be a self-care book, there are a ton of life affirming nuggets throughout the book. And I mentioned I was nodding my head. His term Greenlights (this is where the title came from) refers to affirmations and actions and pivotal moments that point you in the direction of your deepest desires.

And, if I may suggest. Listen to the audio book. He has a way of expressing and talking that make the book so enjoyable. He has a slow southern style. I had to increase the speed of play a little, but I enjoyed every moment.

Happy Reading! If you check it out let me know what you think!
