About the Author

Academy Award-winning actor Matthew McConaughey is a married man, a father of three children, and a loyal son and brother. He considers himself a storyteller by occupation, believes it's okay to have a beer on the way to the temple, feels better with a day's sweat on him, and is an aspiring orchestral conductor.

In 2009, Matthew and his wife, Camila, founded the just keep livin Foundation, which helps at-risk high school students make healthier mind, body, and spirit choices. In 2019, McConaughey became a professor of practice at the University of Texas at Austin, as well as Minister of Culture/M.O.C. for the University of Texas and the City of Austin. McConaughey is also brand ambassador for Lincoln Motor Company, an owner of the Major League Soccer club Austin FC, and co-creator of his favorite bourbon on the planet, Wild Turkey Longbranch.

Reviews

"A delightful surprise, full of stories that [haven't] been shared on late night talk shows or made headlines over the years. It's a wild ride to be sure, but if you enjoy McConaughey and all of the eccentricities and contradictions that come with him, it's one you won't want to miss."--Texas Monthly

"A brilliant memoir . . . [Greenlights] is unmistakeably 'a book that only Matthew McConaughey could have written.' This is a good thing."--The Times Magazine (UK)

"McConaughey's own story is arguably more interesting than any character he has embodied on the silver screen over the decades."--USA Today "Delightfully voicey."--GQ

"At its best moments, Greenlights . . . delivers memorable life lessons."--Pico Iyer, Air Mail "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, men's 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
