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 got this book because i LOVE Tina Fey. I did not know this was a "women" book, but has a guy I loved it. I was laughing on the bus/train going to work. People looking at me. I love the book Tina, I hope you will make another one :)
Books are great when the author is the one to read it but Tina Fey takes this to a whole new level! I can't imagine having read it and missing out on hearing her read it.
This book is actually read by the author, not some mono-toned narrator who couldn't care less about the words that are coming out of their mouth. This is by far my favorite audio book. She's funny, passionate & has the ability to convey what she's feeling in every line. Well done Tina Fey! Well Done!
Good, not great. A ton of Tina Fey humor, which is great for laughs. But it tends to get old after a while.
Loved listening to Tina tell her story herself. Sometimes the story of her life bogged a bit - weren't we all misunderstood teen losers? But there are many funny lines that only she could tell. Her reading made it clear that she knew you were listening to an audio book, but it was kind of disheartening how many times she referred to a pdf that supposedly came with the book that I couldn't access.
GREAT listen! I think that this book would be funny without the audio, but listening to Tina Fey narrate her own book was a great treat and definitely added something to the whole experience. The chapter "That's Don Fey" will remind many of your childhood in the 70s and cause you to laugh out loud. You won't want to turn off the iPod for this one, and the kids/hubby might think you are crazy as you snicker to yourself, but it is WELL worth it :-)
I like to listen, read and get lost in a story.
The story was great. The narration was great. What's not to love about it!
Tina Fey brings her unique sense of comedy to the table which can be heard through her narration.
