Unless you are trying to gain a better understanding of your mom or grandmother, you might think twice before reading Nora Ephon's last book. But for those of us women who fit into either of the above categories (or are old enough to fit), this book is a must read! We lost this gifted journalist, screenwriter, and filmmaker in 2012 at age 71, but her work will stay with us for a very long time. Just think of "You've Got Mail", "Sleepless in Seattle", and "When Harry Met Sally..." and you'll know what I mean. In this book of short essays and its bestselling predecessor--"I Feel Bad about My Neck"--Ephron addresses the downside of aging with the same kind of humor that made her screen plays so popular. You will come away with a smile on your face as well as a renewed understanding that you are not in this alone. I would write more but I Remember Nothing.

Very funny, an easy read. Poignant on relationships, aging. I hadn't remember that Nora Ephron is a successful screenwriter, with such credits as When Harry Met Sally, You've Got Mail, and Sleepless in Seattle. Her sister is Delia Ephron, also a well-known humorist and writer.

Moments of laugh out loud funny. A very talented writer that knows how to entertain an audience. RIP Nora.

This is definitely not an uplifting collection, but it still contains Nora's witty take on life and all that it entails. RIP Nora.

very uneven. some of the stories were funny and some sad. some great and some boring. too much name dropping and self aggrandizement for my taste

Sadly, this was Ephron’s last book before she passed away in 2012 at the age of 71. Her book reads somewhat like a lesson plan of mistakes to try to avoid in life - specifically her mistakes. She laments her two divorces, her movies that flopped, and once she gets going on the egg-white omelet, she really lets you know how she feels. Her tone sometimes reminds me of Bill Maher, but more sweet and elegant

Oh , my - this is my first reading of Nora's work . I felt her first story was very weak , but this was her last book - and her writing showed enormous courage an grace . She will be missed .

Funny, honest, and silly, with occasional flashes of wisdom.

This was really good--but sad. It's clear she knew she was dying
