From her Academy Award-nominated screenplays to her best-selling fiction and essays, Nora Ephron is one of America's most gifted, prolific, and versatile writers. In this classic collection of magazine articles, Ephron does what she does best: embrace American culture with love, cynicism, and unmatched wit. From tracking down the beginnings of the self-help movement to dressing down the fashion world's most powerful publication to capturing a glimpse of a legendary movie in the making, these timeless pieces tap into our enduring obsessions with celebrity, food, romance, clothes, entertainment, and sex. Whether casting her ingenious eye on renowned director Mike Nichols, Cosmopolitan magazine founder Helen Gurley Brown - or herself, as she chronicles her own beauty makeover - Ephron deftly weaves her journalistic skill with the intimate style of an essayist and the incomparable talent of a great storyteller.

Not for me.
I had higher expectations for this book and so I am disappointed. I don't find her writing has anything with wit or punch. I also found the material to be dated.
Nora Ephron not a favorite of mine as I now know from trying this audiobook. I gave up about half way through.
Narration was fine. I found the content lacking.
I won't be bothering with Nora Ephron again.
