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)
Though I like Tina Fey's reading, she sometimes mumbles, speaks to fast, or her voice drops off at the end of a sentence. Although I loved the book, it was not great for listening in situations with competing noise, such as the car or even under earphones unless in a quite place.
This was my first, going to be hard to compare after that
HUMOR and Real life
I'm very glad I didn't buy the print version, because the audio is EXCELLENT. Tina Fey delivers an amazingly funny performance.
I really enjoyed a lot of the stories from behind the scenes at SNL.
She uses a lot of voices and characters for the people and events that she describes. It really adds a lot to the story.
Probably one of the most creative audiobooks I have had the pleasure of listening to!
I loved the personal, friendly connection this audio book offers . I felt as if Tina Fey were right across the table telling me her story.
This book reminds me of Let's Pretend This Never Happened and the novel, A Walk In the Woods. All three are unabashedly presented. All are funny and a delightful look at how silly we all are in our quest to improve our lives!
Loved hearing how SNL actors and writers work together. Scenes that come to mind are Tina's photo shoot, her retorts to ridiculous emails, and her recollection of how her Palin character came to be such a favorite. Tina also has a fun take on birth,babies and breastfeeding... I laughed so hard.
I did get a few looks from people when ever I had those snorting "bursts" of laughter while riding my bike around town.
The audio book needs to be longer! I hated that it was over so soon. Write more Tina Fey!
Yes, I like listening to Tina tell the story.
The beginning is hysterical.
Her personality is great!
Her story about her father.
I loved that Tina Fey actually reads the book. Therefore, it is her own words put into action.
I think I liked how she described her childhood. She funny even as a kid.
It was great to listen to. I thought it was great that Tina Fey actually read the book - which made it more interesting.
Funny, well narrarated.
The first half was hilarious.
The chapters on growing up.
Yes. I laughed aloud while reading it.
I would! And I have, while sharing it with others. It is hilarious, well-written, and meant to be performed - what more could you expect from a comedian, right?
I am familiar with Tina Fey's work on television. I enjoyed this more, because it was an insight to her life, with the same quirky view on things.
Yes, though I didn't have time for that. It took three sittings.
