This book is absolutely hilarious. I laughed out loud at some parts, read others to my husband and found myself smiling and laughing in my car while reading it in the parking lot of my daughter's school. I cannot say enough about this one, Tina Fey is an all star. She is not only celebrity but regular human being too. As a woman if you have not dealt with some of the issues in this book you have not lived! Great 5 stars all the way!
A fun memoir by Tina Fey about how she got her start in improv and comedy, her family, her work at SNL and 30 Rock, and balancing work and family obligations. She includes a segment about playing Sarah Palin. Significant parts of this were laugh-out-loud funny, so consider yourself warned.
Tina Fey is my kind of woman, she embodies the right combination of sarcastic wit and flawed charm. It's an insanely fast read and it literally made me laugh out loud in spots
Tina Fey is funny; let's just get that out of the way. This woman cracks me up. We may not agree on politics, but I respect her and admire her and I think she has a keen sense of the human intricacies that thread women together. This book is unabashedly feminist but not a Steinem-type feminism; her germane observations are moderate, respectful, and insightful. She doesn't use this book to bash anyone or push her own beliefs. She simply narrates parts of her life and describes how she got to where she is, what she's grateful for, and how lucky she feels to be in the life she's in.
I enjoyed this book through and through and thought Fey's rules of improv were some of the best pieces of life advice I've ever read. They show a true appreciation of, and respect for, others. She cares about her staff and those around her - not just at home but at large.
How is it that Tina Fey can get so deeply into my head and know what I'm thinking? She's the kind of woman you want to be friends with and one with whom you feel comfortable talking about anything. *sigh* I wish I was her.
Reading this book at the conclusion of the "30 Rock" series was bittersweet. Fey is funny, but she also makes some serious comments (in a funny way) on the ways women still face challenges in show business and in politics.
