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)
Tina is hilareous and a very nice, well adjusted person. Her story is an inside view of her life and a lot of our popular culture. She has had an incredibly lucky life -- funny how a clear sense of what she wanted and a strong work ethic seem to have helped.
Too busy for bad products
The book seemed honest about Tina Fey's life as a successful working mom.
Juggling a SNL appearance as Sara, working with Oprah and throwing a birthday party all in a weekend.
It was great to hear the book with Tina reading and adding her necessary tones to what she wanted to say.
Love to listen to books while travelling, knitting, cooking, weaving . Listen to at least two non fiction for every fiction.
She's an wonderful talent...good writer and performer so yes
No..it was long and drawn out and maybe more humourous if you had similar experiences
She was 'all the characters'
I hate to be a curmudgeon ; many people will find this interesting and humourous but I found it long and not so funny. But I still think she's talented in acting, writing and stand up...just not taken with this memoir of sorts.
I didn't get a chance to read the print version but I can't imagine it gets better than this.
One of the most memorable moments for me was the Sarah Palin
I haven't listened to any other performances by Tina Fey but after listening to this one I will for sure look for them.
There wasn't a particular moment that moved me but the entire book is written in such an amazing and honest way that I felt I was talking to her in person, and that in itself is a big moment!
I've been recommending this audiobook to everyone. She mixes a lot of great content about her personal life and larger observations about being a successful woman.
The only bummer about the audiobook is that she refers to many of the photos in the book. So you miss some of the details. But the audio does include her SNL skit as Sarah Palin, which is fun to hear.
This is the only way to enjoy this story. Tina Fey does I great job. More than her reading a book to you, it feels like she is slouched on your couch with you with several bottles of wine. She is telling you the great stories of how she got where she is. While she is at it she is pulling her iPhone out to show you the pictures to emphasize it. Thanks for the PDF.
Fun, interesting, entertaining
The determination that Tina Fey showed through out her life.
Everything, she's very pleasant to listen to.
Her commitment to her craft, her family and her crew.
Absolutely, great story, transitions, and side narrative by Tina.
Obviously, Tina Fey!!! She was real and authentic throughout.
No audio books, but love her in her other performance venues.
No - because I know I can't. There were good transition moments, which I appreciate.
Fey's reading is essential to an optimal experience of this book. In addition to her audible-listener-only quips, she adds a unique, and hysterical delivery of her material that I could never have created on my own. I listened to it on a 6 hour drive, and it felt like it took 30 minutes. I've recommended it to all my friends who enjoy Fey/30 Rock/SNL.
Very funny and it takes my mind off my busy life to listen to her busy life.
