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)
The fact that Tina Fey narrates this herself adds so much to the text...her cadence and intonation make it even funnier to listen to.
I loved her chapter about Don Fey....Unacceptable! SO funny and she seems to have so much respect and love for him.
Loved all of the references to being a teenage girl in the 80s. Anyone who grew up during this time will appreciate the references.
I guess I should have expected good and humorous (and self-deprecating) writing from a writer and star from Saturday Night Live. She delivered. A thoroughly enjoyable read.
I'm a mother, a teacher and terribly dyslexic. I spend a lot of my time listening to podcast, or audiobooks whilst doing other boring tasks.
As you would expect, this is a very funny book. I was laughing alot on public transport...which is some what embarrassing as everyone stares at you. She's funny and insightful at the same time. It's totally worth listening to if you want to laugh out loud on a bus and have everyone stare at you.
I loved this audiobook. I'd listen to it again especially if I had a long drive coming up.
Tina's stories are great & you feel like you're getting a "behind the scenes" on everything you've seen her in on tv.
Give this book a try. You'll be glad you did.
How could you not love this woman? She's super smart, she's sassy, and she's hilarious. This book was very enjoyable. She tells funny stories about her life and gives advice for women (people in general) that would like to get into media and entertainment... actually, she gives great career advice in general.
Best line “Some people say, “Never let them see you cry.” I say, if you’re so mad you could just cry, then cry. It terrifies everyone.”
She's very expressive!
i;ve got this book as a gift from my boyfriend who i must add is a huge fan of Tina Fey... i knew she was on SNL and 30th rock but mmmmmm i wasnt that much of a follower by the time i started listening to this...
and then it happen¡... i coudnt put it down!.. and the fact that is her the one telling you its amazing, the book is great, and although im still catching up with 30th Rock i became a total fan of her!... she;s quite a bitch (in the good way) and i admire her!...
the audiobook is way easy to listen, and she not only there in a studio reading her own words like other authors are.. she;s living it and thats a plus!..
I'm an avid reader who now listens to books on tape. I'm a bit late to the game but enjoying the hands free reading.
What a wonderful way to spend 7 hours (or however long it was). Tina Fey wrote an amazing book, read with her personality and made it my best listen from Audible.com. I laughed and stayed with her the entire time. I couldn't drift away or I'd miss something good. I even had to rewind a few times to be sure I didn't mishear something. Incredible book worth listening to again and again.
I listened to this book during my train rides to and from work, and more than once laughed out loud in spite of my best efforts to contain myself. Tina Fey is so funny, and this book is pretty awesome. It was great to get some insights into her career and success. Highly recommend!
