by Tina Fey | Read by Tina Fey

Part personal story, part comedy, and part career advice, Tina Fey's memoir is full of her signature smart and self-deprecating humor. The author's narration of the audio version keeps the laughs coming. Fey gives a behind-the-scenes look at her upbringing in Pennsylvania, her days with the Second City comedy troupe, her work on “Saturday Night Live” and “30 Rock,” and her efforts to balance motherhood with her career in an industry dominated by men. The book itself is jumpy, like the sketches Fey writes for television. Her delivery and timing make it extra funny, with voices, impressions, and asides, as well as the audio from her famous depictions of Sarah Palin for SNL. Fey also refers listeners to a downloadable PDF file, on which there are some photos worth viewing as a complement to the narration. S.G.
