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)
no one i know. SNL female junkies? Big Tina Fey fans. Bored people?
cut out some boring stories
I thought it would be funnier-- good for a few chuckles.
If my friend had nothing better to do, then why not? Listening to that fly buzzing around in your room won't make you chuckle, but this audiobook will.
Tine Fey's performance is wasted here. She is a great reader but here stories lack pizzazz.
I wish here life was funnier.
If you love Tina Fey you will love her audiobook. But if you love to laugh, I mean really love to laugh, do not listen to this book. But if you love to chuckle, give it whirl.
First of all, I just love Tina Fey. So if you're not a big fan, don't read it. If you are a fan, or are sort of a fan, or would like to be a fan, then READ IT! Better yet, listen to it via Audible because Tina Fey narrates it. This book is laugh out loud funny and the humor is only accentuated by Tina. By having the author read the book, you experience the story just as she intended. Her inflection of voice and tone are done brilliantly. It's several hours of Tina at her finest. Probably the best memoir I've read. And by probably, I mean it is the best memoir I've read. If you have even the smallest of senses of humor, you'll be glad you purchased this book.
It was so fun to hear Tina Fey tell her own story...it made me feel like she is just so normal (which she is...). She was funny, of course, but also not afraid to tell everyone the bad parts of her life and her insecurities.
real-life stories about things we already knew something about!
Great story, an easy listen. Highly recommend if you enjoy Tina Fey. She narrates, which makes it even better.
She is so real and funny. I could listen to this again and again.
Tina Fey is hysterical. The only disappointment is all of the references to the addendum - which you don't get here even though Ms. Fey says it is available in a PDF download. I would have appreciated seeing the references.
I laughed a lot
Her v oice and tonality. She also had excerpts from SNL
I laughed so hard I cried
I loved that Tina Fey both wrote it and read it. It was the most performance like audio book I have ever listened to.
There was comedic timing and character that I wouldn't have experienced if I had not listened to the book and instead read it.
I loved how much her daughter means to her. At one point she's talking about something big and important going on in her career, but in the same breath she's worried about some things she ordered for her daughter's birthday party that haven't arrived yet.
I loved the variety of things she wrote about and how they all tied in together, different vignettes of her life that collectively make her who she is.
Will read (or in this case, listen) to just about anything.
I loved this book - it was great for the road. As a side note, several of my friends read the book, too, and the unsurprising group response: the more you like 30 Rock and Tina Fey, the more you'll like this book (duh).
