Reviews

  • You don't have to be old to appreciate this collection of memories, aphorisms and stern good advice from America's favourite naughty aunt... snigger-out-loud... Reading this book is a little like being sat down by an older, wiser friend... good advice indeed

    Independent on Sunday
  • Read Nora Ephron because she's funny, read her because she's wise, read her because she never writes a boring sentence, read her because she's sharp as a knife but her heart's in the right place... Enjoy!

    David Robson, Daily Express
  • As always, she has an eye for the killer detail... a mixture of memoir, rants and observations... This book is as grown-up as a dirty martini

    Daisy Goodwin, The Sunday Times
  • If we have to grow old (and as they say, consider the alternative) there's no better guide

    People Magazine (Top 10 Books of 2010)
  • Tantalizingly fresh and forthright... She's self-effacing and brilliant. I use lines of hers all the time... She's like Benjamin Franklin or Shakespeare: her words are now part of the fabric of the English language

    The New York Times Book Review
