This book is a collection of blandly interesting anecdotes about Ephron's life. The kind of blandly interesting anecdotes you tell friends over dinner (and they do not feel obliged to repeat), not the kind that turn into juicy, zesty, jaw-dropping books. I can only imagine the meeting with her editor.

Editor: We want you to write a book about your life.

Ephron: I'm in the middle of something.

Editor: Okay, make it short. Just write anything down. People know who you are. They've seen When Harry Met Sally. We put it out right before Christmas, they'll buy it, no problem.

Ephron: But I don't remember anything I haven't already written about.

Edior: Even better! We'll call it, "I Remember Nothing"!

The good news is that this book is only 130 pages, so if you're in a contest with someone to see who can post more books as "Read" on goodreads, it's a good choice. Otherwise, it's not.
