George Lopez just hit the half-century mark and the
reset button on his life. Newly single and ready to embrace life, George was
excited to turn fifty. It would be a welcome new phase in his life, a chance to
say goodbye to a decade that included a kidney transplant and a divorce. But
when he looked around a room full of his childhood friends, all gathered to
celebrate his birthday, many now bald or overweight, it suddenly hit him that
he was old.
What happened? And more importantly, what was he going
to do about it? George learns the hard way that when you turn 50, everything
changes. You pull a muscle in your sleep. You avoid mirrors at all costs, and
always, always wear a robe. You have to schedule an appointment to
have sex. You have to dye your hair and buy a bathtub with a door.
As George learns to embrace life after fifty, he
invites readers into his world, sharing the ups and downs of getting older—from
his relationship with a much younger woman to a bizarre session with a pet
psychic, to a trip behind-the-scenes at his tumultuous two years at Lopez
Tonight, to an intimate look at his sacred ground, the golf course—and, for the
first time, he reveals in moving detail, the story of the battle for his life
against kidney disease.
I’m Not Gonna Lie will make you
laugh at yourself, cry about yourself, and look at turning fifty in a way you
never would’ve imagined, through the eyes of George Lopez.
