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)

Dangerously funny!

Decided to pick up this book for a drive to a marriage conference. During the whole trip it kept my wife and I laughing. Made the 6+ hours of drive time go by quickly. Some parts are dangerously funny. To the point where you (the driver) may be brought to tears. So just be careful while listening to the book. Especially on windy roads.

I couldn't do any bettering the best

Great insight to what makes/made Tina Fay. But a "meh" from a guys point of view. Good time passer but not extravagant...probably because my expectations were different from the get go. But hey....she wrote a book and that alone deserves 5 stars!

Best read by Tina herself.

Hearing Tina Fey tell her story completes it with her voice and trademark inflections. Thanks, Tina for staying real and letting us feel relatable. You have millions wishing you were our friend. I completely laughed my way out of a slump.

Tina, will you please and thank you make a sequel?

I loved this audio book so much during my road trip that when I looked down and noticed that there were only 11 minutes left, I paused it and searched for distractions for an hour so it wouldn't have to be over just yet.
