    Based on three years of research and reporting, as well as 850 interviews with sources, many of whom have never before spoken for publication, Oprah is the first comprehensive biography of one of the most influential, powerful, and admired public figures of our time, by the most widely read biographer of our era.

    This stinks. Hands down this is the worst Audible book ever. Kitty Kelley narrates her own book and her voice was very irritating. The tale about John Tesh was downright rude (and showed him to be a lout). Kitty Kelley comes across as the ultimate mean girl. I could only get through the first couple hours and had to quit it. It just wasn't interesting and I didn't want to hear anymore.

    Before Liz Lemon, before "Weekend Update," before "Sarah Palin," Tina Fey was just a young girl with a dream: a recurring stress dream that she was being chased through a local airport by her middle-school gym teacher. She also had a dream that one day she would be a comedian on TV. She has seen both these dreams come true. At last, Tina Fey's story can be told....

    Overall

    This is a modern, fresh feminist manifesto with heart and wit. It appears that the secret of Tina Fey's success is that surrounds herself with people she loves and enjoys. I really enjoyed her description of Don Fey (so similar to my dad that I couldn't stop laughing); the true girlfriend love with Amy Poehler; and her employee/mentor relationship with Lorne Michaels.
    As a side benefit, I think I better understand the writing for Tracy Morgan's character on 30 Rock (which always makes me cringe and laugh at the same time).
    There is only one big hole in the story. With the exception of the honeymoon, she completely leaves out how she goes from horrible dates at UVA to happily married. Did Jeff threaten legal action?
