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)
Very very funny :-)
Loved the story on baby and breast feeding, so totally agree with Fey ...
Yes, I would recommend this book to a friend, if I had any.
I like Tina Fey. After listening to this book, I feel like she is my new best friend. She is smart, funny, and very human. She is now my role model, even though I think she's younger than me.
I promise not to be a stalker.
I did not listen to this book all in one sitting. I was busy packing to move to a new house. It was like having a friend keeping me company. I was glad to save some to listen to later.
Don't miss the PDF. She frequently mentions pictures that are in it. I tried to look at it on my iPad, but it wouldn't open. After I finished the book, I looked them up on my laptop.
It would have been better to look at them as they were mentioned.
This book made me laugh out loud pretty much every five minutes. I love Tina Fey and it was a treat to hear her read this very funny book.
Tina delivers an amazingly hilarious story with just the right balance of humor and thought provoking insights
I love Tina Fey's intelligent humor. More laughs per page than any book so far.
This is a very entertaining, well written, hilarious book. Tina Fey does an incredible job reading her story. I haven't laughed out loud this much in quite awhile. Loved it!
I would. I loved hearing Tina Fey narrate her own book. It added a lot to what was being said.
Absolutely. This book, while having no desire or need to do so, has become my favorite go-to in the world of the working mommy. Tina is self-deprecating in the most comical way, and teaches us more in this novel than all the self-help books out there could ever hope to do. Kudos, Tina Fey. I hope I can bring up my daughter to have as much moxie, self-confidence, and self-awareness as you have and had.
Tina's performance was as stunning in audio form as in person. She's awesome.
Yes. It was inspirational. I laughed so much I cried.
Male or female, you MUST read and/or listen to this book. It will make your perspective on everything better.
Tina Fey does a great job reading her own book, writing her own book, and living it!
Her funny memories with Sarah Palin
She is a great actress so she obviously does a great job reading.
Maybe two sittings but yes!
