Through his 50-year journey, Mathew’s learned how to turn life's challenges into a state of happiness and success, which he calls Greenlights.

Matthew has been writing in journals since he was fifteen years old. His adventures have taken him from Texas to Australia, from Mali to Peru—and he has chronicled them all. In this authentic, unconventional journal, Mathew encourages you to go inside: remember, reflect, and also go outside and enjoy adventures, take risks, and dream big.
Dr. Friedman and Matthew dive into the stories chronicled in his memoir, ranging from his parent's marriage, pivoting his career in Hollywood, and how he maintains his effervescent attitude in the public eye.
