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 like Tina Fey, so I enjoyed the listen. Not an epic tale or lovely story but that is not really the point of a Tina Fey book, is it?
This book is written from the perspective of inner voice and enriching life experiences. Tina Fey did a remarkable job capturing her readers and audiences from the start of the book till the end while she flourishing it through laughter.
Her prayers for her daughter is such a memorable part of the book, not only it was eloquently put together, it was also so real.
Tina Fey is absolutely hysterical, and not just the funny kind of hysterical, emotionally too. The three stars as a compliment means she took a mediocre story and made it crazy entertaining by her excellent performance. Just ask her, she will explain it to you...
N/a this is my very first audio book experience.
The one that Tina did, haha! She did them all!
When she talks about her dad, I was moved to envy her and her awesome father, because my dad is/was so embarrassing.
I think Tina is my long lost aunt or cousin. And I miss her.
I would recommend this book to a friend because Tina Fey is hilarious, and easy to like.
My favorite character was Tina, she is funny.
Tina brings her personality to her own words in this book, and I loved it.
I remember laughing out loud when Tina described her chest.
Such a good book, audiobook!
For me, it was a 'giggle as you go listen'. I love
Tina Fey & so listening to her narrate her own made it even better!
Impossible to say (that is- why would I do both?).
Great listen. She's a brilliant woman.
Designer, Dreamer, Digital Doer. I love to take walks, garden, and putter around while listening to a good book.
I liked that fact that Tina read it and added her unique comic timing to an incredibly witty book. She was able to weave her personal narrative into an engaging, thoughtful stream-of-consciousnesses that revealed what makes her more than just another retired SNL comedian.
I liked Don Fey. I liked how she was able to sum up the most interesting man alive.
What, she does impressions?
It was laugh-out-loud funny and I'm never going to erase it off my audio playing device, which could or could not be an Apple product. I will consider this a must read/listen to book when I teach my drama class. I've never taught a drama class, but I've done Improv and got a degree in theatre. Not theater, theatre. You know.
I never got the pdf, I feel cheated.
Im so glad she decided to voice her own book! She has a way of saying things that I don't think anyone else could copy properly. This thing makes me laugh and cheer and agree with her through the entire thing!! (ALL 20 TIMES I HAVE LISTENED SO FAR)
She is the bomb!! But it right now!
She is so honest and has that wonderfuly dry witty humor.
Having Tina Fey narrate her own book was great since her humor and personality really shone through. I'm somewhat familiar with Tina Fey but am not a huge fan or anything so I found the book very interesting and learned a lot. Overall, the book is funny and interesting with her many stories about SNL, being a woman comedian and being a mother. This was the PERFECT audiobook in particular because of these stories. You'll definitely enjoy it!
Absolutely! Tina Fey narrating the book makes it that much more memorable.
"Sleep when the baby sleeps. But why stop there!"
Too many to name - really!
