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)
I bought this book as I was going to make a car trip of about 7 hours.
This book certainly kept me entertained. There are funny parts, some serious one, and also anecdotes from Tina Fey's SNL life.
Time flew by with it during the trip.
Tina Fey is hilarious! Her comedic delivery is perfect and the material is relate-able.
The only thing I cannot understand is, how can such a beautiful woman have so many insecurities? It was shocking to hear that from her....
If you like Tina Fey, this is a must! Very funny, entertaining, and fast paced story. I couldn't put it down. Tina Fey as herself makes the story even more likable.
Say something about yourself!
This book was fun to listen to. I felt like a good friend was telling me about parts of her life.
I was entertained the entire time, and feel as though I have a little more insight into the business/life of acting and comedy.
I always look for the author to be the narrator for books like autobiographies so that you know you're getting all the nuances in the storytelling. Tina Fey does not disappoint when it comes to conveying all the little extra emotions in her stories. But now and then she talks much to quiet in her short, one-sentence sidebars. Even after cranking up the volume, they get muffled and incoherent. It's too bad, since the ones I COULD hear were often quite funny. Overall, a short read that's worth quite a few laughs. Tina is one heckuva performer/writer and it was interesting to hear some of the backstories before her SNL breakout.
If Tina Fey can't make this absolutely hysterical, no one can. It was enjoyable enough, but I expected way more. She was holding back a bit, and over doing other bits.
I have been excited about this book since I heard it was coming out. It was amazing to find out how much in 30 rock is actually true. I love her humor and am going to be sad when 30 rock goes off the air. Great book if you are a fan.
