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 needed a good laugh, and Tina Fey provided just that. This may sound strange, but I downgraded the rating because she was overly humble. Will I listen to this recording again? You betch' ya.
It ranks fairly.
Yes, because I like her humor.
I liked hearing about her personal experiences and her perspective was clever.
I appreciated the chapter about her father.
Tina Fey is funny, and inspired. She has a distinct point of view, brilliantly comical in it's delivery, while at the same time standing for a cause. I know some of you did not like it, but I LOVED it. She was my friend in the morning as I rode the 6 train to work and helped me not to sweat my sweat, running on the treadmill at the gym. I would recommend this to anyone with a funnybone in their body. She's a great listen no matter what you are doing. I can't wait to hear more from her! Rock on Tina Fey!!!
If you loved her on Saturday Night Live and Thirty Rock you'll love this book. If not then pass on this book. I found book boring.
yes, very enjoyable read. Really gives her perspective on things with her reading her own book.
obviously, the author
I think she added things not in the print version
just the title
Really good and very entertaining. I thought this was a good book and I would really be interested in others by Tina Fey
Tina Feys story and performance are the best.
All of it moved me to laugh.
Funny and interesting inside look at SNL.
Newly retired, I am a reading fiend! I like many types of books, both fiction and non-fiction, with the exception of romance and fantasy
I immensely enjoyed Tina's story. The laughs came so quickly, I am sure I will listen to it again soon, anticipating my favorites and catching those I may have missed. I especially appreciate how Tina tactfully handled the longstanding issue of sexual bias by the media, and how she subtly worked to change this seldom-addressed issue without becoming labelled as a radical feminist. Good for you, Tina.
Highly recommended audiobook!
Listening to the story was an excellent way of relaxing and having fun, at the same time learning a lot.
Tina Frey sounded very straightforward and a dedicated person.
A book you don't want to stop listening to.
This is another book I can listen to over and over - it never gets old! Tina Fey is a great writer and story teller - very funny (of course). Really quick witted - so quick, that you can listen over and over and pick up a new little item to chuckle about each time. These types of books are my favorites and they are hard to find. I have to REALLY enjoy a book to listen to it more than once. I probably have a total of about 4 of them in my huge library (I've been a member for almost 10 years now I think). So as I've said before - in my very few five star reviews - just get it! You've wasted one credit on much worse (I'm sure) :) !!
