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 of those dreams come true.
At last, Tina Fey's story can be told. From her youthful days as a vicious nerd to her tour of duty on Saturday Night Live; from her passionately halfhearted pursuit of physical beauty to her life as a mother eating things off the floor; from her one-sided college romance to her nearly fatal honeymoon - from the beginning of this paragraph to this final sentence.
Tina Fey reveals all, and proves what we've all suspected: you're no one until someone calls you bossy.
Includes special, never-before-solicited opinions on breastfeeding, princesses, Photoshop, the electoral process, and Italian rum cake!

"I hope that's not really the cover. That's really going to hurt sales." (Don Fey, Father of Tina Fey)
"Do not print this glowing recommendation of Tina Fey's book until I've been dead a hundred years." (Mark Twain)
"Hilarious and insightful. Laugh-out-loud funny - oh no, a full moon. No! Arrgh! Get away from me! Save yourself!" (A Guy Turning into a Werewolf)
OK, I'm a guy. I don't watch 30 Rock or Saturday Night Live. This is a book about a very nice woman with a nice life. It has little imagination or perspective. It is not very funny. I really could care less about her child's fingernails or her decision to have a second child. I am sure the themes resonate with a lot of people, I'm guessing mostly women. However, to me it was pretty empty. Sorry.
The first time through this audiobook, I laughed so hard. Since then, this has been my go-to book for a smile at the end of a long day! Her narration is excellent (including voices for characters like Sarah Palin) and her balance of honesty and sarcasm is perfect. Really enjoyable listen!
I actually would! It was laugh out loud funny and it was nice hearing it in Tina's own voice.
Loved the chapter about her dad, Don Fey
Really entertaining, recommending it to all my girlfriends.
This was my first audio book ever purchasing. I was pleased with my purchase tremendously. Listening to Tina tell the story of her life, was a wonderful experience.
I couldn't help but laugh out loud as I listened to Tina recount the hilarious moments of her life.
I'm rediscovering my passion in books. Reading and listening to stories gives me a great way to experience the world a page at a time.
Tina Fey's charm shines so bright in this book how can you not come back?
She wasn't a robot nor did she sound like a drama queen. It was like she was talking to me face to face. It was au natural.
I laughed. Hard. It was funny. It was smart and witty.
Say something about yourself!
I must not be a fan of comedian bios... this is so boring, I cannot even finish it.
Tina Fey is every reason you need to listen to this book. It was everything I wanted it to be!
The chapter when she talks about the work place.
I never really paid much attention to Tina. I saw a few snl skits and thought she was ok.as 30 rock I knew she was a star. Still I stop paying attention.. This audio book really allows us to relate to her. The fact that she narrates her own book is a plus .. It really brings a connection, you feel she is sharing her story personally with you.
I almost missed this book opportunity because of the price.
Tina narrating was awesome. Her voice tones were as friendly and animated as if I were sharing a story with a personal friend
I listened to the book in one weekend doing chores.
Kudos to Tina. Thank you for your silly stories you gained a fan!
After seeing Tina Fey on SNL and 30 Rock, I didn't see how this book could be anything but funny. But, really, it wasn't, in my opinion.
I laughed once, was amused a few times and kept hoping somewhere along the way, it would get better. The most interesting part of the book is how she came to play Sarah Palin on SNL.
I would highly recommend Billy Crystal's book, Still Foolin' Em, over this one, hands down. It entertained me from page one until the end. And no Tina Fey, it isn't because he is a guy and you are a woman.... he is simply funnier than you and tells a better story.
Tina Fey delivers her stories perfectly. The text by itself would have been funny but listening to her tell it was even better.
Yes :) and came close to.
