Tina does such an amazing job on this audible performance. She even includes a .pdf special for audio listeners. You don't miss a thing by not having the book - in fact I think it is better!
I really enjoyed this book. To hear it from Tina Fey added depth to the story. I have a new found appreciation for her wit and intelligent perspectives.
It was a Great way to travel to and from Work everyday listinging to Tina Fey. Her Outlook one every thing is refreshing and you find yourself sitting at the red light laughin your head off while the driver next to you vives the look; That one is crazy! And the funny is that you don't give a sh-t about him.Tina Fey is absolutely great in narrating. Cudos to you girl for doing it yourself.
This is one of the funniest books I have listened to in a long time. I felt as if I was sitting in the audience of a comedy show with Tina Fey. I grew up around the same time so the white denim pant suit totally hits home!! It was a terrific book and I was so sad that it ended. I have recommended it to all my friends and encouraged them to listen to it rather than read it to really get the most out of the book! I even picked it as my book club selection when I host and I am insisting that all my book club members bring a photo of themselves in the equivalent of their "white denim pantsuit" to the meeting at my house.
This book was so enjoyable, I'm going to listen again. There are many laugh out loud moments in Fey's performance which make the audiobook even better than the book itself. Her delivery is just so spot on. You actually feel like you're having a conversation with the author, lots of fun.
I expected a few laughs from Tina, maybe even some behind the scenes gossip. Nothing. This woman gets her kicks from working in New York City. I find that sad. A great read for like minded career women who enjoy city life.
Great on SNL, great on 30 Rock, but really disappointing in print. I expected to laugh until I cried, but only moaned. Sorry, Tina.
Tina Fey is a cross between Dennis Miller and David Letterman. Like Dennis Miller, she sprinkles references to pop-culture and TV events throughout the book (most of which I don't get). Like David Letterman, she loves lists ("The 7 Things every Girl needs to know about Knuckle Hair"). Sure, if you just want laugh-out-loud funny, this is a great book. OK, maybe that's a good reason by itself. Many of the stories were geared towards women in the entertainment industry, which leaves me out on both fronts. I found myself at times wanting to stop reading because I couldn't really identify with her story, and sometimes finding it all geared towards punch lines instead of finding out about what makes her tick. She's a comedy writer, right? But autobiographies need a bit more "thematic lines" as they say in music - a long story that ties together and brings out some depth and inner feeling. That was often lacking here. But Tina Fey probably deserves an Emmy just for her Sarah Palin imitation...
