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)
Road trip perfection.
The big day of filming with Oprah for 30 Rockand playing Sarah Palin on SNL.
This book would have been funny enough with some generic reader, but Tina Fey reading the book put it over the top! It's like 5+ hours of 30 Rock & Weekend update. Enjoyed how she told her life story with behind the scenes details on how 30 Rock got its start.
Tina Fey is a great reader -- she brings the book to life.
Loved her perspective on fashion shoots and Alec Baldwin.
I couldn't listen all at once -- it was a bit too much Tina Fey for that. But I looked forward to listening every night as I walked the dog!
Don't know - I haven't ready the print version.
The section regarding "Growing Up and Liking It."
Much of it made me laugh. Other parts of it were somewhat strange.
The section regarding Tina's honeymoon is also hilarious.
Cool book, got me through a few commutes home. Good times. Good job on the book Fey.
Loved how hilarious she is in general, the personal stories were insightful and (what else?) hilarious and endearing. The PDF with pics is awesome. Not so in love with her ode to her teenage relationship with gays, seems kinda irrelevant but its her story so what can you do? She's a smart politically savvy workaholic. Love her work and now I love her!!
I really loved how she described Don Fey.
Tina Fey was a great reader, she jokes with you as she's going along. I'm a fan of 30 Rock and Tina's writing so I was excited to listen to this book. I would recommend this book to others.
I loved Tina Fey telling her own story. I remember thinking it strange to read a story about Tina Fey actually not wanting to continue appearing as Sarah Palin. It was such a great hit for her. Listening to her experience, however, made me see that she made perfect sense.

This book is just what you'd expect from Tina Fey. Smart. Funny. Real. Insightful. Funny. (It's double funny). Even stuffed into a sweaty summertime subway, I laughed out loud.
I am a mother of three who enjoys reading and knitting. When I found out about audible I cried I was so happy... FINALLY I could have both my loves together in one perfect comfy quiet mommy hour! ( Well maybe not cried, but I was pretty pumped)
Funny Interesting Perfect
The fact that she narrated her own book, I don't think anyone else reading it would of done the book justice.
Listening to Tina Fey describe working at the YMCA! I laughed so hard, as a x Y employee I could relate!
