From Publishers' Weekly:

Tina Fey charts the course of her remarkable life and details her many misadventures in this hilarious audio edition of her best-selling memoir. Covering everything from her childhood and family to her days performing improv in Chicago and time at Saturday Night Live, Fey never fails to entertain. Her conversational narration is superb, her comedic timing spot-on, and her stories laugh-out-loud funny. Additionally, Fey creates a host of unique voices for the many characters with whom she crosses paths. Whether she's climbing a dangerous mountain to impress an uninterested would-be boyfriend or holding court on parenting and gender roles, Fey leaves listeners laughing and longing for more. Totally addictive and utterly enjoyable, this audio is an absolute must for fans-and just about everyone else too. A Reagan Arthur hardcover. (Apr.) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.

From Library Journal:

In her highly anticipated first book, Fey hilariously covers her childhood and coming-of-age; time at Chicago's Second City; years at Saturday Night Live (SNL) as a writer, "Weekend Update" cohost, and performer; development of 30 Rock; and ubiquitous role as Sarah Palin. She gives advice on raising an "achievement-oriented, obedient, drug-free, virgin adult," how to be a good boss and what she learned from SNL producer Lorne Michaels ("Never tell a crazy person he's crazy"), and breast-feeding ("If you choose not to love your baby enough to breast-feed, you can pump"). After portraying the queasy-factor of putting in contact lenses as somewhere between a breast self-exam and losing a tampon string, Fey writes, "If you are male, I would liken it to touching your own eyeball, and thank you for buying this book." Verdict Of Fey's Palin debut on SNL, which was viewed by ten million people, she explains, "You all watched a sketch about feminism and you didn't even realize it because of all the jokes." She accomplishes the same feat with her book. Highly recommended. [Four-city tour; see Prepub Alert, LJ 11/15/10.]-Anna Katterjohn, Library Journal (c) Copyright 2011.
