Overall the book was interesting. It's told in a very smart, funny, jewish comedic way focusing on parts of life, that are a journey for all of us, especially as aging women.
It's not literature and not meant to be, but, it has some worthwhile insights.
Nora was a really bright lady who accomplished a great deal in her life.

Parts of this book were interesting, other parts dull, and other parts insightful. I believe I read this book at the wrong age. I found it difficult to relate to and some of the advice did not feel relevant to my generation. I enjoy Nora Ephron's movies but some of her essays were ranty. So it was okay, because there were some lines I wanted to underline but most of it was forgettable and a drag to get through.

Filled with quotable wisdom and over the top humor. Ever wondered, "Who is Nora Ephron?", this is a good place to start. Recommend listening to the audiobook read by Ephron to get the timing of her very funny delivery.

Ephron takes stock – her career (including cooking for Craig Claiborne), her marriages (there were three), the Apthorp (an apartment on the Upper West Side of Manhattan she fell in love with for a time), her purse, and of course, her aging body. She will make you laugh, and feel good about life.

This was a good read for when you want to relax and not think too much. Very light, I enjoyed it.

Wonderful vignette of thoughts on aging women by someone who is going through it with a sense of humour and perspective. I loved it and had to keep some quotes for my favorite ides log.

Somewhat amusing stories about a woman growing older. Quick way to pass some time, but nothing very special. I rate this a C plus.

Read by the author which really added to the hilarity of it. I'm not sure i would have gotten some of the nuances of her "voice" if I had just read it.

Classic Nora Ephron essays. Sheer delight. The world will miss her passion and one-of-a-kind wit. It is distinctly "New York", though, as was she is, so for those who can't understand that lifestyle, I wouldn't recommend this book. To everyone else, it will be a fun, entertaining, and quick read.

- one of my books on tape that goes walking with me. Nice and light but with crisp writing and some funny bits. A bit trying to hard to be a witty, fashionable New Yorker but I still liked it. 7/10

A candid, hilarious look at women who are getting older and dealing with the tribulations of mainenance, menopause, empty nests and life itself. She speaks frankly and uproariously about life as a woman of a certain age.
