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)
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!
I like Tina Fey, so I enjoyed the listen. Not an epic tale or lovely story but that is not really the point of a Tina Fey book, is it?
This book is written from the perspective of inner voice and enriching life experiences. Tina Fey did a remarkable job capturing her readers and audiences from the start of the book till the end while she flourishing it through laughter.
Her prayers for her daughter is such a memorable part of the book, not only it was eloquently put together, it was also so real.
Tina Fey is absolutely hysterical, and not just the funny kind of hysterical, emotionally too. The three stars as a compliment means she took a mediocre story and made it crazy entertaining by her excellent performance. Just ask her, she will explain it to you...
N/a this is my very first audio book experience.
The one that Tina did, haha! She did them all!
When she talks about her dad, I was moved to envy her and her awesome father, because my dad is/was so embarrassing.
I think Tina is my long lost aunt or cousin. And I miss her.
I would recommend this book to a friend because Tina Fey is hilarious, and easy to like.
My favorite character was Tina, she is funny.
Tina brings her personality to her own words in this book, and I loved it.
I remember laughing out loud when Tina described her chest.
Such a good book, audiobook!
