Overview

I Remember Me weaves an American tapestry of colorful tales, beginning with the timid musings of a young boy on the verge of becoming a man in the Jewish section of New York's Bronx neighborhood, and bringing us up to date with the mature insight of a man whose remarkable trajectory has sent him to the top of Hollywood's elite and sparked the careers of dozens of household-name entertainers. Along the way, Reiner treats his loyal readers to everything from the ordinary to the truly unforgettable: a family trip to a nude beach, French lessons with Mel Brooks, a chapter dedicated to Rinnie the dog who unfortunately mistakes a skunk for a cat, a surprise early-morning visit from the McCarthy era FBI, a heart wrenching story of loss describing the day of his wife's passing, and then in a revealing chapter of Reiner's character, he describes "the most theatrically triumphant day" of his young career.

Through his memoir, we meet the man behind the success in roles rarely seen before: son to Romanian immigrant Irving Reiner, husband to fellow Bronx native and renowned singer Estelle Reiner, father to the prolific filmmaker Rob Reiner, Dr. Annie Reiner psychoanalyst & gifted singer, and Lucas Reiner, a globally recognized fine artist.

Written with the same combination of playful jest and modest humility that has garnered the love and respect of fans for generations, I Remember Me remembers the creative and inspiring journey of one of the most revered comedic icons of the past hundred years.

    Carl Reiner has written a masterpiece of a memoir. He has accomplished so much in his career, and the stories he shares are very interesting. While most people know Reiner as one of the Hollywood Elite, the most interesting stories are about his family life. Highly recommended.

    Extremely interesting

    I really enjoyed the book, but have to admit that I was surprised at the amount of spelling errors I found in the book. I usually find around 2 or 3 in each book, but this book probably had more than a dozen. That's quite extreme.

    That being said, the book was very enjoyable.

    Love Carol Reiner

    This is a great book and it leaves you feeling good. Mr. Reiner's sense of humor has only gotten better with the years. He's had a full life and has generously shared it with others. It's a beautiful walk back in time.

    Mr. Reiner is amusing in any media.

    This book is funny, insightful, touching, and just generally delightful. It is a lovely relaxing read especially after a less than lovely day.

    I wanted to like this book but at every turn it was like someone

    I wanted to like this book but at every turn it was like someone had thrown spaghetti at the wall and if it sticks then it was used. There was too much about his liberal thinking. When I am being entertained I don't care who you voted for President. You have a vote just like I do, but there were several stories I would like to have heard again that I remember Carl telling on the Tonight show and other shows that were not in this book. What was here became a bit of a stretch to call funny. I wanted to like this but I could not recommend it.
