Anderson Cooper's intensely busy career as a journalist for CNN and CBS' 60 Minutes affords him little time to spend with his ninety-one year old mother. After she briefly fell ill, he and Gloria began a conversation through e-mail unlike any they had ever had before, a correspondence of surprising honesty and depth in which they discussed their lives, the things that matter to them, and what they still want to learn about each other.

Interesting insight into a well-known family. Gloria is amazing and her age and life experiences have given all the benefit of perspective. Long live Gloria!

Really interesting listen about mother and son Gloria Vanderbilt and Anderson Cooper discussing their similarities, differences, and lives as a whole.

Great audiobook narrated by the authors, Gloria Vanderbilt (mom) and Anderson Cooper (son) asking the personal questions via email about family for better understanding of each other and themselves.

A very candid and insightful discussion between mother and her grown son. The voices of Anderson and Gloria reveal deep personal feelings which helps you get a closer and more intimate look at the lives of these influential people. For someone who usually avoids celebrity memoirs this was a interesting book about two people and those they love.

Anderson Cooper and Gloria Vanderbilt have a conversation about their lives, both as mother and son, and the people and events that helped shape them as people. It's the kind of conversation we should all have with our loved ones while we still have the opportunity. I connected strongly with the introspective nature of the book and how it connected with the act of sharing personal, interconnected narratives. I highly recommend the audiobook version.
