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)
This was a great book to listen to while traveling down the road. It was funny, engaging, thought provoking at times and yes,after listening I even wanted to share it with my mom and sisters!
Well that would be Tina Fey because the book is by Tina Fey, about Tina Fey and read by...you guessed it...Tina Fey!
I am from the Charlottesville, VA area where, after listening to this book I learned Tina went to college. I thought the parts about her time there literally hit close to home. I also enjoyed hearing her story about her father and her thoughts on parenting today.
I was driving in a car for 6 hours, so this filled the time perfectly. I actually had wished it was longer but alas it was not.
The fact that Tina reads her book makes it all the more enjoyable.
I loved how she spoke to the listener throughout. Great stories!
If she was reading, yes. If it were more anecdotes from her life, no!
No Easy Day
Her father at the New York Airport
Only for die hard fans. A collections of anecdotes that aren't really all that interesting.
Only if they are Saturday Night Live fans and like Tina Fey. And like this type of book.
I just couldn't get into this book. I would go for days without picking up my ipod to listen to it. I like Tina Fey and I loved her impersonation of Sara Palin. And I think there were some interesting parts to it, but it's just not something that held my interest. I am about half way through it and probably will not finish listening to it. Sorry, Tina.
Yes. There were many pithy comments, funny stories, and witty remarks that I may have missed. I would love to go back and make sure I didn't miss anything.
I loved that she kept calling her nanny a babysitter and then says that she definitely has a nanny, but it gives her race anxiety to call her that. She's very honest.
I laughed a lot. I was also moved by many of her comments about women and their experiences.
Tina Fey is funny and does a great job telling a very funny story of her years in show business. She is down to earth and incitefully finds hilarious points in even the most common everyday fact of life. A very light hearted enjoyable read sure to make you laugh.
Say something about yourself!
Top five- Tina Fey did a great job.
Talking about her childhood in Delaware County, where I live.
She narrated the book and added some side jokes and voices that really made the book even funnier.
Yes, I finished it in 3 days of commuting.
Buy it! Even if you're not a huge fan of Tina's, you will be after you listen!
No the first time was good enough.
Make it funnier.
I liked it, some parts made me laugh.
I listen to books on my long commute.
I really find Tina Fey funny and witty. Her insights and story are humorous and I laughed out-loud many times. The reviews I read before buying this book were glowing and high. Some of the growing pains she shared as a young woman probably appeal more to women than men.
