Publisher's Summary

"...the decided advantage of the audiobook is that it is read by a cast of stars as long as your arm - thanks to Nevins' considerable achievements in television and production...This is choice listening for the car, as the stories are short and thus lend themselves to erranding and other short hops." Fran Wood, NJ.com
This program is read by the author and a full cast: Cynthia Adler, Alan Alda, Bob Balaban, Christine Baranski, Kathy Bates, Ellen Burstyn, Glenn Close, Katie Couric, John Henry Cox, Blythe Danner, Lena Dunham, Edie Falco, Tovah Feldshuh, Diane von Furstenberg, Whoopi Goldberg, Gayle King, Diane Lane,
Sandra Lee, Judith Light, Jenna Lyons, Audra McDonald, Janet Mock, Sheila Nevins, Rosie O'Donnell, Jean Richards, RuPaul, Liz Smith, Lesley Stahl, Gloria Steinem, Martha Stewart, Meryl Streep, Marlo Thomas, Lily Tomlin, and Gloria Vanderbilt.
"Thank you to Sheila Nevins for putting all this down for posterity. Women need this kind of honest excavation of the process of living." - Meryl Streep
An astonishingly frank, funny, poignant audiobook for any woman who wishes they had someone who would say to them, "This happened to me, learn from my mistakes and my successes. Because you don't get smarter as you get older, you get braver."
Sheila Nevins is the best friend you never knew you had. She is your discreet confidante you can tell any secret to, your sage mentor at work who helps you navigate the often uneven playing field, your wise sister who has "been there, done that," your hysterical girlfriend whose stories about men will make you laugh until you cry. Sheila Nevins is the one person who always tells it like it is.
In You Don't Look Your Age, the famed documentary producer (as President of HBO Documentary Films for over 30 years, Nevins has rightfully been credited with creating the documentary rebirth) finally steps out from behind the camera and takes her place front and center.
In this program you will hear about the real life challenges of being a woman in a man's world, what it means to be a working mother, what it's like to be an older woman in a youth-obsessed culture, the sometimes changing, often sweet truth about marriages, what being a feminist really means, and that you are in good company if your adult children don't return your phone calls.
So come, sit down, make yourself comfortable, and slip on those headphones. You're in for a treat.

Not what I was hoping for at all.

Any additional comments?

I guess I was expecting something Nora Ephron adjacent and was excited by the stellar cast of celebrity narrators...Meryl Streep, Lily Tomlin, Ellen Burstyn, Alan Alda, and a whole bunch more. Hmmmm. The essays in general were not funny, helpful, insightful, or even particularly well written. Revenge, pettiness, anger, bitterness, and such, appeared to be the main themes. For me it was all made worse by the addition of music and sound effects, which I don't really care for in an audiobook. Plus the narrators seem like they are acting the parts rather than narrating the stories, and by doing so they rather overpower the writing. Overall it felt more like listening to a not very good play being rehearsed than a book of essays. It wasn't a total loss, I found two of the essays quite compelling and well done. But in hindsight I wish I had simply exchanged this book for credit rather than persisting to the end.

Not what I expected

Is there anything you would change about this book?

I thought these were going to be stories written by each of the different actors...but they are stories read by the actors. Some were touching and funny but all from the perspective of rich, successful woman. I didn't finish.
