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)
Absolutely Awesome...Tina is funny as usual. I had many bouts of laughter.
Tina's voice tells the story in a more interesting dynamic.
Laughed the entire time
Very amazing sir!
It's a comedy type book, every comedian is different. But I know other comedians that have written books and one of those is George Carlin.
The whole thing is a convergence of funny!
Tina Fey reading it
any auto biography
she brings more delight to the book than if i just read it. Listening to her speak was very entertaining
her realationship with her mother.
Fun, funny, entertaining
Listening to Tina talking about her stent playing Sarah Palin
These are her words and it was great hearing them from her.
Laugh, laugh and laugh
This book had me laughing every five minutes but also gave me some good thoughts about management styles, modern feminism, and the business of comedy. Great insights conveyed through humor, what a blessing when that happens!
Her storytelling feels easy, almost free-flowing but you can see the structure upon second thought. Very smart writing.
It felt very honest.
Lots of laughter.
I've recommended this book to several of my friends, male/female, young/old. She touches on such divergent topics - feminism, homosexuality, business, stress - that the book seems entirely relevant to many different types of people.
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
