The author of this book is Matthew McConaughey. An American Academy-Award winning actor who has featured in multiple high grossing films like Dallas Buyers Club, Interstellar, Free State of Jones, and Wolf of Wall Street among many other critically acclaimed movies.

We all associate the word Greenlight to traffic light, when we have the way of passage on the road. It tells us that it is okay to move on from where we had stopped. In Matthew’s book, Greenlights have the same conception, “They are an affirmation of our way”, telling us that we are on the right track to getting what we want.
Using Greenlights as a metaphor to life experiences that push us forward, the author teaches us about values on conviction, resilience, and responsibility. He uses stories from his life to share with us lessens he has learned and how we can live a fulfilling life as he does.
