The woman who brought us “When Harry Met Sally” and “You’ve Got Mail” reflects on her life in this collection of essays, some of which were published in magazines or the New York Times previously. She tackles the condundrum of hating purses but needing purses, laments not appreciating her neck before it turned into a sad mass of folds, and dishes out what she’s learned in her 64 years.

What I liked: It was an easy read, and at times pretty funny.
What I didn’t like: It definitely was not aimed at my age demographic, so I couldn’t identify with a lot of the topics.
What I learned: I should appreciate my neck more and live in a bikini until I’m 34.
Unresolved question: None — Ms. Ephron knows it all.
