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)
First off, I love listening to books read by the author. And this one was throughly entertaining and enlightening. It made me - a sheltered good-girl - feel validated and way less lame. I'm inspired to follow my ambitious heart. Thanks for the awesomeness Tina Fey.
Tina Fey's humor and honesty. The book is hilarious.
The audiobook recording quality sounded a little distant compared to other audiobooks, but hearing Tina Fey's narration was priceless.
Sr Medical Transcriptionist. Love a Good Book.
funny, creative, interesting.
It was about her life growing up and her career choices. She was great at filling in a complete picture of her family and friends/characters and what she was feeling throughout each stage. Very funny.
No. It was like a performance and it was better in 2 to 3 chapter doses.
I don't usually enjoy biographies after I commit to read one. And I wasn't going to read Tina Fey's either. But it got such rave reviews that I was interested. When I saw it as an audiobook, I was sold. Having Fey read/perform her own work made all the difference. It was great.
Her candor! I loved learning about her from the get-go! I
Loved finding out that she is a Greek girl like me!
All of her is great...well, except for the fact that she is INDIFFERENT to animals! WOW, that is VERY SAD!! I don't get that at all and sure hopes she finds that that is NOT good for her child's upbringing! We ALL share this planet and she should allow her kid to explore them too.
nothing in particular.
I love her in general. Don't watch 30Rock and don't intend to - but I think she is a VERY hard worker!!
Tina's narration sounds like she is just speaking to you, instead of reading her book. In fact, there are a few times where she addresses the listener directly making me think that she added in things as she did the reading. It is very entertaining.
Learning about her reluctance to play Sarah Palin.
Tina Fey tells about her life, but fortunatly most about her TV life. Fun and ironic, but not as neurotic as Liz Lemmon. Tina Fey is smart and fun, and that is this book too.
More biographical details than I really wanted to know with remarkably little humor. I was expecting to laugh but instead was truly bored.
