Academy Award-winning screenwriter and director Nora Ephron ("When Harry Met Sally", "Heartburn", "Sleepless in Seattle", "You've Got Mail") turns her sharp wit on to her own life. It includes: Never marry a man you wouldn't want to be divorced from; if the shoe doesn't fit in the shoe store, it's never going to fit; when your children are teenagers, it's important to have a dog so that someone in the house is happy to see you; anything you think is wrong with your body at the age of thirty-five you will be nostalgic for by the age of forty-five; the empty nest is underrated; and if only one third of your clothes are mistakes, you're ahead of the game.

Review quote

"Wildly funny and, although extremely accurate (at least for most of us), not remotely depressing" -- Joanna Trollope "An uncanny ability to sound like your best friend, whoever you are" The New York Times "What's refreshing about Ephron is that she refuses to entertain any illusions about the terrible fate that awaits us. What's great about her is that she makes the truth about life so funny when it should be so grim" The Sunday Times "Wildly funny and, although extremely accurate (at least for most of us), not remotely depressing" -- Joanna Trollope "Few will troll these droll selections without being charmed to bits... Recall how hard it was last year to find a present for Mother's Day that wasn't yet one more box of chocolate? Remember this book. You'll thank me. It's perfect" -- Lionel Shriver Guardian

Customer reviews

I am a big fan of her previous books but i was very disappointed from this one. I Feel Bad About My Neck: And Other Thoughts on Being a Woman had no content, it was not well written and it showed no deep thinking about any of life's different aspects and it was a bit superficial.show more
