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)
This audiobook is downright hilarious!! I love Tina Fey as the narrator. Her tone, delivery and inflection really make the book. I don't think you would get as much out of it if you just read it. I laughed so hard, I often had to rewind a bit to catch the stuff I missed. It was so good, I listened to it twice in a row! Tina Fey is awesome!
Having her read the book to me was so intimate. Plus, some of the stuff is really funny!
I laughed out loud and sat in the car to finish the chapter/story more than once.
Tina Fey's genius lies in her ability to inject feminism into her work and yet maintain her accessibility to mainstream audiences. If only Jezebel could harness this power...
Oh, and it's funny too. Seriously, I was Lizzing all the way to LA from SF.
I'm a fan of 30 Rock and so it was a no brainer to listen to the Audio book. If you like Tina Fay's style of comedy or style you will not be disappointed with this book.
Easy and fun listen. Detailed accounts that provide insightful background to classic performances… very cool. It’s Tina’s not as much self deprecating humor as immediately confessing actual intention humor that make me laugh out loud (not cool when it happened when listening while I grocery shopped). Her voice and uncanny impersonations of the SNL and 30 Rock cast added a lot. And it left me wanting more... It would be lovely if Tina had the time to do a regular podcast, or at least a tri-annual audiobook for my enjoyment.
ps Someone should convince her to put “ The Mother’s pray for it’s daughter” in a card and sell it. I would buy it for every woman I know who has a daughter for the rest of my life.
Tina Fey is hilarious - i absolutely loved this book! And i love that she narrates this book too, her inflections and tone make it that much better. And she makes a number of surprisingly good points too, but i think she does so subtley and with humor. One note, if you're easily offended by occasional poor language you may not like it. I'm not a fan of poor language but i still thoguht the book was awesome!
Couldn't take a drink of anything while listening to this book for fear it would come out my nose. I'm glad I got the audio book instead of the printed book - Tina Fey's narration and delivery were outstanding. She really is incredibly talented.
I saw this book in the store and had no desire to read it. For some reason checked it out on Audible and was laughing at the free preview so I used my first credit to get this book. I was not dissapointed. I loved Tina on SNL and she is as funny as ever in this book. I thought it was hysterical.
I loved every minute of this book. Fey is smart and funny - you won't be bored or regret this purchase. I hated for it to end!
Tina Fey uses this book to set the record straight on times when she was misjudged and likes to get on her soapbox about women in power, but aside from her ulterior motives for writing the book I just really enjoy her humor and her view of the world and getting to know more about her.
