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)
I LOVE Tina Fey on 30 Rock and consider her acting to be first class. This book leaves me irritated and bored frankly: her childhood tales just aren't that interesting, and her performance is grating. I switched from listening to this to David Sedaris and felt immediate relief... made me realize that her humor is far more appropriate in a theatrical/TV ensemble setting.
A funny and surprisingly human account of life as Tina Fey sees it, narrated by, who else but Tina Fey herself. Wonderfully enjoyable five and half hours.
I stopped halfway through this one, I really honestly thought it would be much better given the fact I love Tina's writing on 30 Rock and others, but after listening through some 15 or 16 chapters I just got fed up with the huge amount of sarcasm.
It does provide a few funny moments, and it might even get better towards the end if you stick with it, but I didn't.
This is one of the funniest books i have listened to. Tina Fey reads it herself and she is hilarious. I love her on Saturday Night Live, and 30 Rock. This is a contiuation of her great brand of humor. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants a great laugh!
Tina brings her warm hilariously funny vocal style to this audio book. Reading it just wouldn't be the same. Especially the chapter on Don Fey!
In this compelling audio book, the secrets to living the life you've always wanted are made available to you. Listen, enjoy and change your life!
The only good thing about the book is that it was relatively short. I don't think I could stand another minute of it. I might of smiled once.
This is one of the most entertaining books I have listened to in a long time. I listened to it twice, back to back. I rarely re-read books, and never again so soon. It's creative, intelligent humor. It includes social commentary (e.g., about gender disparities in comedy), but without being preachy. Overall, loved it.
I am now a Tina Fey fan. I like her narration,
A chick book for sure, but I enjoyed as well.
I was looking forward to this book because I love 30 Rock but I was kind of disappointed by it overall. I thought Tina Fey did an all right job of relaying her story but I felt the book had too much of an agenda. I expected a funny account of her life and she did tell a few funny stories but the general tone of the book seemed on the negative side to me. If you are looking for a book about Tina Fey's life with a few funny stories incorporated then this book is just fine. If you are looking for a really funny book written by a very funny comedian then check out the Michael McIntyre book Life and Laughing. Even if you aren't familiar with him as a comedian the book is hilarious and he does a very good job narrating.
