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)
I would recommend this book to a friend looking for a funny listen....although there is not much of a "story". The fact Tina Fey is the narrator makes the book.
I would recommend the book to most of my friends, however because there is some cussing that some might find offensive there are certain of my conservative friends who i would not recommend this book to.
Tina was just funny, it was great listening to her narrate her own story. My sister and I listened to this book while we drove to Montana. We laughed together, and both couldn't wait to continue the story when we'd make stops. Which is a big thing, my sister and I never agree on books or movies or even interesting topics to talk about. And, actually thinking about it, this was the first road trip we've taken together where we didn't argue or get in a fight. So what did I like best about Tina Fey's performance? I like that she entertained two people who were completely different.
This is a super funny book, made all the better by being narrated by Tina Fey herself. It's an audiobook you have to hear, as long as you don't have any little kids around who you don't want hearing some cuss words here and there.
Very funny, I like the way she thinks. Tina Fey is brilliant and very relatable. I'd recommend it to everyone except a few chapters about female issues which men don't understand and may find uncomfortable.
Very funny book by a very funny woman who has earned her success. Definitely worth the listen.
Tina responds to some of the hate mail she's received over the years.
She reads it as if it were a skit on her life, not just a book. She takes time to acknowledge the listener and it was refreshing.
Get ready to laugh out loud on the train, in your car, where ever you listen.
The comedic timing Fey usually conveys is starkly missing from a great deal of this audiobook. I wish she used a more conversational tone as though she were telling a story so it didn't sound like she was just reading a book to us, if that makes sense. It also wasn't as funny as I thought it would be, but I feel like that was largely due to the narration, which may have been better on paper but didn't translate for me.
The Twelve by Justin Cronin
I would ask her to use a more conversational, story-telling type of tone.
Maybe - it's hard to say because I didn't enjoy the audiobook. We only made it about 2/3 of the way through it. I might have enjoyed it more had I read the paper book.
It was funny. I laughed right out loud. I love her delivery. I have shared this book with others.
Carol Burnett's autobiography as it was also comical.
The delivery! The timing. Her side comments are histerical and I think you would lose that in reading it.
Yes. I laughed. I was traveling at the time and had people looking my way but didn't care he he
I would definitely recommend it.
Tina Fey's life story - told by her. She is a funny lady.
Tina Fey narrated her own story.
It felt like she was in the car with me telling the stories.
Stories about her Father - that's Don Fey!
Maybe. It is not the kind of book that grabs you. It is an autobiography and is entertaining but not a book that you can't put down.
Not sure since I don't usually read autobiographies but I will be getting Rod Stewart's next.
I liked that she brings herself to life. She has a witty and irreverent style. Very engaging.
I found it refreshing that she came to the aid of her gay friends and never changed her opinion about one's freedom to be who they are.
