I loved that Tina Fey both wrote it and read it. It was the most performance like audio book I have ever listened to.
There was comedic timing and character that I wouldn't have experienced if I had not listened to the book and instead read it.
I loved how much her daughter means to her. At one point she's talking about something big and important going on in her career, but in the same breath she's worried about some things she ordered for her daughter's birthday party that haven't arrived yet.
I loved the variety of things she wrote about and how they all tied in together, different vignettes of her life that collectively make her who she is.
Will read (or in this case, listen) to just about anything.
I loved this book - it was great for the road. As a side note, several of my friends read the book, too, and the unsurprising group response: the more you like 30 Rock and Tina Fey, the more you'll like this book (duh).
Part of the attraction of this audiobook to me was the "real" feel of it. It did not feel like a finely polished production, and I think that added to the enjoyment. It was like Fey was in the other room washing dishes and was just talking about her life. To be honest, it took me about a Chapter to get used to this, but once I got into it, I really liked the presentation. You feel like a good friend just left after an enjoyable conversation when it is over.
Tina Fey's skills as a communicator really stand out in this audiobook. Her take on the way an audiobook should be recorded makes you wonder why so many titles are incredibly dull to listen to.
On the other hand, for a book whose initial purpose is to answer the question of "how is it for you [Tina Fey, a woman] to be the boss of all those people", it talks a awful lot about boys and dresses and how a girl must have male homosexual friends... I mean, I think a feminine touch to any work environment is very welcome, especially if this touch means going to an office free of jars full of... well, read the book and you'll know. But I don't believe that women must talk about how they gave birth to their children in order to claim their space in an world "dominated" by men.
Being a feminist shouldn't be about being as shallow as men, but with the opposite sign.
Funny, poignant and some insight into behind the scenes at SNL and more. She does a fantastic job of reading the book too.
Everything. Tina Fey reading made it so real
ALL OF IT!
I WOULD LOVE TO SEE A SEQUEL WITH MORE OF THE SATURDAY NIGHT STUFF.
Witty, inspirational, hilarious, and too short! I wish she could've gone on about her life some more because, besides the funny situations, I could listen to her all day everyday! She is brilliantly funny!
I don't usually like biography but I really enjoyed this one. Tina's story is a good one and she is a great narrator as well.
It's upbeat and funny. I now have insights into the field of entertainment that never occured to me before.
I can't think of a comparison.
She brings the book alive.
