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!
PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

"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)
Definitely! anyone who needs a laugh and just wants to hear the life struggles that another goes through this is book is for you! We listened to the audiobook in the car on a road trip with the family
Yes when she talked about juggling the SNL moonlighting job, with 30 Rock, and her child's birthday party and all were important to her. She worked so hard all the time yet maintained her humor and life balance. I found that inspiring!
I think Tina Fey is a great writer and I thought she did a great job reading for the audio book as well. I hope she writes another book in the future! Also, I'm a republican conservative and I still loved it so just because she is a hard core lib don't let that stop you. If it does quit being so closed minded! As you will see in this book we are all just people trying to make it in this world and take care of our family while having a few laughs along the way. Love you Tina we think you are awesome!!!!
I want to read books that take me to a "place and/or time" I've never been. On the other hand, I love reading about places where I HAVE been.
This was just too short. I didn't want it to end. This is THE only way to 'read' this book. Tina Fey is hilarious and a very good narrator. No one else could have done it as well. Great book for anyone who has had growing pains and horrendously embarrassing teenage moments. Doesn't that include us all!
This book was a wonderfully funny bio. I thoroughly enjoy Tina Fey. Read it! You won't be sorry.
I was expecting to laugh out loud and enjoy all of Tina's quick wit. I was disappointed. I couldn't even bring myself to finishing this audiobook.
Yes. To stop swearing.
Cursing is not attractive at all.
There is too much cursing for my taste.
Yes! I love Tina Fey and hearing her perform her own book was a treat.
Of course. But I ended up using the book as a reward for doing tasks I dislike. I let myself listen to the book while I folded and put away laundry and in the grocery store.
Tina Fey - hands down.
Loved the story about her climbing the mountain with the boy she lusted after - only to be horribly shot down.
Tina and her husband have a very sweet - and funny - relationship. It's very nice to listen to the stories and banter between the two.
Very good listen - short and sweet! Great way to get into audiobooks.
I would listen again and again, but each time trying to get a new person to listen with me. That way I look smart for picking such a good book. She is the most talented thing to come out of Saturday Night Live in 20 years. My wife and I laughed out loud looking like idiots driving through traffic. When my daughter gets a little older I will buy her the book and when she wants to, and technology hasn't rendered our ears useless, I will play it for her. No, buy her a copy. Don't just lend it out suggest others buy it. Tina deserves to be rewarded for her efforts.
I would have to say the Toothy nob job line.
You are listening the exact way it was intended to be heard. Sometimes punctuation falls short.
The part where she spoke of her father moved me. She is liberal ,but see that the old ways shouldn't just be tossed out just because some hippie douche is on TV
Buy several copies. Give Audible gift cards, if they have them. This was my first venture into Audible. I was very pleased with my experience so far. P.S. Make sure to download the entire book before a big trip. Get near a wifi source.
Tina is smart, funny and REAL. Her delivery is hilarious and unpredictable. You're listening along to one of her stories and she slips in a zinger that catches you off guard. (Do not drink liquids while listening). Lots of laugh out loud moments and a great break from the usual audiobook. She makes her point on so many things with a dose of anxiety and comedy; two things rather close to my heart. Loved it!
