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!

Narrated by Tina Fey
I listened while driving the car. The many slap your leg funny parts! I also liked when she spoke directly to the listener, knowing we were listening verses reading and had bought, borrowed or stole the audio version.
Just one?? I couldn't, the whole book is enjoyable and entertaining!
Yes, I would have liked to be able to do that.
Just get it, book or audio and enjoy!
I would listen to it again because I kept me entertained and laughing almost through the whole book.
Don Fey. He's got style.
I've watched her on SNL, and I could picture her clearly while listening to the book.
32 year old female in the DC area with a terribly long commute and high standards for my audiobooks... I like science fiction, science, instructional, and humorous novels.
Get this. We should kidnap Tina Fey and make her be the reader for all audiobooks.
Just damn funny.
Tina's expressions and her intonation in her voice makes her content so much more than if I were to read it. She's smart, funny, self-deprecating, authentic and still optimistic.
One of the best reasons to ignore everyone around you, look terribly important by staying
Yes. Reminds me of David Sedaris' sarcastic wit, but from a straight woman's perspective, although I don't think her delivery is quite as good as his - probably because she speaks so rapidly that the humor doesn't have the comedic pause that his does.
She was so..down to earth...and very, very funny. She remembers intimate details about her life and when she shares those details, you feel you are right there as it is happening. She points out the humor in situations that I would never have seen!
An avid reader living in NY.
This book was more than I expected. Tina gives you a lot of information about her personal history, events that shaped her and that she found particularly funny, how she got in show business, and how passionate she is for impowering women in her business. She rambles once or twice in the book, but her rambling is as endearing as she is.
No I can honestly say so. I kept hoping it would get better. I think one must know about this person to fully enjoy her story. i don't.
See above coment.
She is ?? very fast talker. Slow it up ?? bit. If she makes ?? point. Let it sink in ?? bit for the listener.
