Blurb: 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.
It was funny. I never noticed the hands on the cover were not hers, LOL. I think I might like her less after reading this though. It wasn’t bad, but I wrinkled my nose at some of her beliefs. She made her views very clear in this book. I did kinda see what she meant about the sexism in the workplace and adapting to it. Her way of handling it seems way more diplomatic and subtle than what I’d like to think I would have done.
And while I do enjoy hearing opposing views, I guess I just wasn’t feeling it as much as I wanted to. I learned a lot about her life growing up which was interesting. She seemed to have a similar childhood to mine, except of course, my parents weren’t republicans. 🙂 And she knows how to nail a punchline. This chic is hilarious!
This book was released in 2011 and while its not that far in the past I could still see how my views have changed and grown in that time. At any rate I’d read another books by her, if only to laugh at her jokes.
