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)
Because Tina Fey is such a good performer, I assumed, correctly as it happens, that this would be a fun listen. But the audio clips, and her sharp asides, made audio the better source.
Very entertaining and a great read.
Her own commentary was very funny and contagious.
She was a great narrator.
"I listen to learn"!
I love Tina Fey. I have seen her in various movies, 30 Rock and loved her on SNL. I don't recall her having such a foul mouth...obviously there wer limiations on national TV. The first 3 minutes I heard way too many cuss words. I no doubt think some will enjoy, but i just didn't want to hear all that. She may not say another one, but I had to bow out.
FOR ME? No foul language
Again, I love Tina Fey and this is probabaly a great listen for many other people, just not me
Out of all the books i've listened to this is definitly one of my favorites. To have a book read by the author adds depth. Also all of the funny jokes added in just for the audio book were a great addition.
I didn't want to put it down. I was hoping my flight would be deleyed so i'd have more time in Tina's world.
Uplifting True Humour
Ellen Degeneres - same sort of Humour but with a dash of brashness.
I would buy more of her books .
Yes. I enjoyed the funny stories she told.
Of course, Tina herself, was my favorite!
Too many to choose from.
Laugh out loud! Tina Fey is so candid and naturally hysterical!
Three words: Inspiring, Hilarious, Endearing
I loved this book and am now a huge Tina Fey fan. I downloaded this audiobook only halfway expecting to like it. Let's just say that Ms. Fey and I are pretty far apart, politically. But despite my politics I loved her imitations of Sarah Palin and she seemd like a really authentic person.
The book is so funny, and yet you really feel like she is a regular person just like you. As a young twentysomething, I was inspired hearing about the many odd jobs she worked after college and how she eventually built her career. I love her approach to life. She has a great attitude about life, about failure, about success. She also speaks very kindly and with a lot of respect about many of those she has worked with, including Mrs. Palin.
Yes because the inflection and comedic timing and delivery comes across the way she intended.
Laughed out loud...a lot :)
The narration by the author is terrific! This book kept me chuckling.
It's true and offbeat.
All were great!
Don't take life too seriously!
I think that having Tina Fey as the narrator made her book so much more fun! She had great asides and hilarious stories that really gave a glimpse into her life. I would highly recommend this book to anyone!
