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)
There seemed to lack a major story line, but book was enjoyable - especially in the author's own voice (a definite plus!)
Why she didn't share much about her mother, even though this was a book about women's roles in business and the glass-ceilings in life
No real insights here. Very superficial story all about Tina
Speak more slowly. She mumbled at times.
There were a few funny spots.
Tina Fey Hilarious!
None other than her movies and Saturday Night Live.
Several laugh out loud moments.
Hilarious self-deprecating humor
Tina Fey is never afraid to reveal the most embarrassing rites of growing up.
Who doesn't love her portrayal of Don Fey?
Laugh! At times enough to make me lose my step as I was working out!
I thought this book would be a lot funnier since Tina Fey is hilarious, but it was kind of boring. Tina Fey does a good job of narrating it, but the content is just a little boring.
Great easy read. Tina Fey has had an interesting life and I was happy to learn
about it getting a bunch of laughs along the way.
High on my list of audiobooks.
Tina Fey's humor is unbelievable.
This book was a first for me. I will certainly check for previous Tina Fey books.
I found myself laughing out loud. Each chapter better than the last.
Words out to all my friends. This book is a must
Tina Fey is so funny! I also loved the behind the scene view into SNL and 30 Rock.
Really light and easy. A very nice break from some of the more serious topics out there.
She is a great narrator.
Yes. Having the author reading helped with her feelings concerning certain areas.
Nothing I have read or done on audiobook can compare to this.
SNL sketches. If you are talking about doing audiobooks, no.
Nothing comes to mind.
One disappointment was the sound a little. Sound like she was in a box on some areas. Other than that, neat story of your average girl making it to the big time.
Absolutely! It was funny, well read, entertaining. Made me like Tina Fey so much.
I normally don't like for authors to read their own books but this was different. I think it was better because Tina read her own work in her own funny, comedic way.
I read 52 books last year and this was one of my very favorites.
