"Greenlights" is McConaughey’s collection of anecdotes, poetry, lessons and "damn good yarns from his life." The famous Austinite’s take on the memoir genre will be a "guide to achieving a state he calls ‘catching greenlights.’" The book is officially out via Random House’s Crown imprint on Oct. 20.
