Overview

Spirited and whip-smart, these laugh-out-loud autobiographical essays are 'a masterpiece' from the Emmy Award-winning actress and comedy writer known for 30 Rock, Mean Girls, and SNL' (Sunday Telegraph).

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 these 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 always 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!

A little late - but we got to know Tina and what drives her captivating humor. Make sure you have a double-shot espresso ready to keep pace with her narration. I think she may have been fueled by the same when writing and reading. She drops a nice volume of cryptic references that may not be caught if you're distracted while listening.

LOVED THIS BOOK! I love Tina Fey and her witty sarcasm! So glad she read it herself, it wouldn't have been the same if it were someone else. I am sure I looked like a crazy person laughing in my car commuting to work but soooo worth it!

Absolutely hilarious! It's an excellent book that I 100% recommend. Like the other reviews say, don't listen to this book if your not comfortable smiling and laughing like a crazy person in public.
