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!

Loved the book, loved her reading it to me even more. I'll be Honest I would have loved it more if Alec Baldwin had read it, but that only means I have something to look forward to in the sequel. Hint Hint.
Tina Fey is a successful, talented lady and is very open in this book. It is read by her and you can feel like she is just telling you her life's story. She is very open about her challenges, concerns and successes. This is an entertaining book yet still thought provoking. It's a insight into the challenges she faced as a women in an all boys system. How many of us can relate to that?
Avid reader turned listener.
When reading some reviews on Amazon regarding this title, some readers expressed disappointment. To them I say "Get the Audiobook". If you are a Tina Fey fan, you will enjoy this book. She is quite hilarious in her narration and it makes me look at 30 Rock a little differently.
Hilarious! I laughed out loud every 5 minutes at least! There were times that I had trouble hearing her (she would mumble for effect), but that mainly added to the hilarity
Audiobooks Make Weed Wacking a Pleasure
Tina Fey tries to get a joke into every sentence, and tries very hard to funny. Pleasurable audiobook with a clever light-hearted self-deprecating style. No, I don't watch or enjoy Saturday Night Live or 30 Rock, but nevertheless enjoyed the stories behind the shows.
I have been a little down lately....and knew I needed to snap out of it. I don't have or watch television and I've only heard of Tina Fey from people at work saying how funny she is. I decided to read the book....WOW! She is hilarious! I've recommended this to several friends, although I'm curious how my 'more conservative' friends will take this....hopefully, for the fun it was meant to be! This was just what I needed! Thanks Tina!!!
I barely knew who Tina Fey was, just knew she spoofed Sarah Palin. This book has funny, funny stories from growing up, being on SNL, being a mom, and her production of 30 Rock-which I had not seen. I laughed out loud so many times!
PS Now I am catching up on 30 Rock---what a funny show!

Disgusting...thought I could listen to this with my grandson as another reviewer suggested. What a huge disappointment! Profane rantings of an egomaniac...probably what is required in today's SNL industry...or television in general. Would love to find books from women who are the opposite of this author.
