Book 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).

Disappointed. NOT a wholesome or feel good read.

This book has lots of swearing, f-bombs especially, and stories that didn’t interest me. Funny at times but still would not recommend.

Great and quick read

I'm not a huge fan of Tina Fey generally, but I loved 30 Rock enough that I decided to pick up this book. I suppose the book is aimed more towards women, but I'm a man and thought it was still hilariously awesome. The book goes through her life, from being raised by her Greek mother and awesome father, to SNL, to 30 Rock, having a kid. The book is very well well written and the jokes in here are exactly what you would expect out of Tina Fey. Although the book feels a bit unorganized, each of her stories felt connected (hard to explain this in an online book review). If you're not sure whether or not to pick up the book, just do it. It's well worth the read. There is also a 5 hour audiobook, which is narrated by herself, and is fairly entertaining!
