HASH(0xa09e06e4) out of 5 stars This is THE BEST E-BOOK of 2013! 19 May 2013
By Cathryn Michon - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Carl Reiner is a comedy genius and a national treasure, that is so known and not even worth discussing here. Of course this book contains brilliant stories, both hilarious and deeply touching. But plenty of people have talked about that when reviewing Carl Reiner's books, every one of which I have devoured and adored.

But that's not why you need to get this book. Though Carl Reiner is, get this, 90 years old, he has managed to conquer yet another medium:


This brilliant writer, actor, director, producer and oddly compelling dancer has created an e-book where one minute you are hearing him tell a story about the days of hosting game shows where people smoked like the maddest of Mad Men throughout the broadcast, and then, right there on the page, is a video of one of the oddest game shows I've ever seen. On another page he talks about Mel Brooks, and right there, right next to his words, is a video of Mel Brooks cavorting in a swim suit on Fire Island. And you know what, he looks...surprisingly good!*

*This is the review blurb that Mel gave for Carl's wonderful collection of short stories, so it's not that mean for me to use it to review his swimsuit modeling. It's, well...surprisingly kind.

The whole book is like that. There are dear home movies of his kids and dog, you can hear his beloved and brilliantly talented cabaret singing wife Estelle in a recording made in HER 90's, the whole thing makes you wish that Carl were your Uncle, and these were your family stories you were hearing. This book will help you pretend that something that wonderful has happened to you. I laughed out loud so hard it woke my husband from a dead sleep, and I sobbed when I read of how much he loved his wife, his children, his grandchildren.

Please, please, please get and read and watch and listen to this amazing book and then tell everyone you know to read it. It's a treasure. Just like Carl.

HASH(0xa09e0738) out of 5 stars Like Having Mr Reiner in Your Livingroom 26 Dec. 2012
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I saw Mr. Reiner promoting this book on The Tonight Show and was going to pre-order it. I was pleasantly surprised to find it's already available for the Kindle. At this point, I'm only about 1/3 through the book but I thought I'd write a few lines if it will help generate sales and make others realize it's available. And I'm obviously not being paid to do this or I never would've written that last sentence!

THE DICK VAN DYKE SHOW is my all-time favorite show. And I once got to hear Mr. Reiner speak at a WGA seminar. He walked right past me but I was too in awe to say anything to him.

Anyway, I loved MY ANECDOTAL LIFE. I REMEMBER ME is more anecdotal than a true biography--which suits this reader just fine. Anyone would be privileged to be able to hang out with Mr. Reiner for an afternoon, listening to him tell stories. Both books offer that opportunity.

It's a light read from a very warm heart.

HASH(0xa1ae3834) out of 5 stars I remember me working with Carl on "I Remember Me" 4 Jan. 2013
By Lawrence V. O'flahavan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is what will happen to you as you read his memoir. First you read the foreword from Billy Crystal and realize that you have just been invited into the wonderful world of Carl Reiner. It will feel like Carl opens his front door (which I have had the pleasure of walking through many times) he will sit you down and begin to tell you stories of his life. He is 90 and as you read... you will discover secrets to life that you will magically apply to your own. I met some very powerful people in hollywood who wanted to meet me before I started working with Carl. One statement echoes in my mind in that meeting "When you start working with Carl it will be life changing"... Gentle readers I warn you when you read "I Remember Me" it will change your life... and I know mine has... Thank you Carl Reiner
all the best

This book was truly a walk down memory lane. Though they aren't my memories and I wasn't born or around for these great days it was great to live it through Carl Reiner`s book. Thank you to such a great man and phenomenal comedian.
