I haven't read the print version. However, since she is both an actress and the subject of this memoir, listening to it delivered in her own voice definitely added something special to the narrative.
The most memorable part was remembering and reliving the entire Tina Fey-as-Sarah Palin chapter of US election history. It was astounding when it happened and is still astounding now. The book did share with us how much effort and studying went into Ms. Fey's performances in that role. At the time it occurred, the public impression was that Ms. Fey was born a dead ringer for Ms. Palin and the satire was thus virtually effortless. Brava, Tina Fey!
Sarah Palin - see above.
The book is mostly light, funny and entertaining. At times the author seemed overly self-deprecating. She's Tina Fey, for god's sake; she doesn't need to pretend that she's really an also-ran to other SNL cast members and that no one knows about 30 Rock. I realize that actors are often either overly egotistical though undeserved or (as seemingly in this case) overly insecure despite huge success. I don't mind hearing her true human voice emerge, but I'll admit that I got a little tired of her claiming that she's not really *that* good at her job. At the same time, it was striking how unpredictable and difficult the life of an actor can be, and she did a good job of conveying that.
I loved the fact that the book was actually being read by the author. Tina Fey has such a witty humor which I think can only be portrayed best read by her. I sometimes had to go back and review what was just said because it was so fast and funny.
I have no comparison to this book as of yet.
I liked the fact that being a female, I could empathize with some of her stories. I liked that I always had a smile while listening and had to muffle my laugh a lot and felt a little more confident with my own mishaps and ill feelings that can sometimes go along with growing up. Mrs. Fey is very good at making perfect sense of non-sense.
Whatcha looking at?
Very funny woman. I thought most of the book was great and thought provoking. A little preachy at parts though.
I loved this story-- the tone, the humor, the personality that came through the writing
