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!

Critic Reviews

"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)

Smart, Funny & Kind

I only have a passing knowledge of Tina Fey: I'm an occasional SNL watcher and I've never seen 30 Rock, but don't let that deter you from reading this book. Funny is funny, and I loved every minute of it! Granted, I am the perfect bullseye for her subject matter: from my happy, obedient, middle class upbringing to the joys and absurdities of the work/family balance. Her self deprecating humor really struck a chord with me!

more awesome than not

I didn't get all of her humor. But what I got I found hysterical. I agree with every mom joke she told and it made it hard to keep a straight face at work.

Great book for all women

Tina Fey is an amazing story teller weaving in her unique life and is able to make it applicable to any woman. I learned a lot of business tips that I will share over time as I practice them personally.

Fantastic Comedienne Autobiography

Loved listening to Tina's voice read her own words. She is a fantastic writer. My favorite chapter was about her father Don Fey. You'll know what I mean when you read it.
