Publisher's Summary

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)

"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)

Tina Fey has got it going on

She is such an interesting as well as entertaining individual I've admired and hoped to learn more about. No better way then with a book both written and narrated by her. Enjoy!

The performance outweighed the content

Tina Fey did an excellent job in her storytelling, but there wasn't much story to tell. I think she weighed too heavily on her pre-SNL life; I wanted to hear more about there time with Alec Baldwin or describe her present-day relationship with many of her co-stars.

I did enjoy the fact that she, on numerous occasions, made me feel as if she was a relatable, normal celebrity with a normal personal and professional background. I never felt as if she was narrating down to the reader; instead, she made it feel more engaging and interactive.

Overall, I would say the story was an easy listen with very light content. If you're up for a beach "listen" or just a light-hearted autobiography, I think this is your book!

Funny, Enjoyable, & Enlightening

She really put together a great story. My wife didn't really care to listen to it as some parts were a little rude/crude for her liking. Overall, I enjoyed it.

tina fey doing tina fey at her best

This book was everything I hoped it would be! A classy, catchy, funny little memoir about SNL, 30 Rock, and Fey's life and awkward duckling stages. You get a bit of a window into her as a person, and she's adorable and funny and engaging and neurotic- plus, the writing is snappy and hysterical, a laugh a minute. Fans of the author will not be disappointed.

What was most interesting to me was the insight into the coming-to-be of the Sarah Palin sketch. Fey chronicles the whole saga in detail, with some remorse in places and a lot of insight. It was neat seeing such a famous moment from the other side, if that makes sense.

Worth listening with the PDF to hand, for added comic emphasis!
