Review From User :

The best audiobook I've listened to in a long, long time. And that's saying something.

I ended up picking this up because when I sent up a signal flare on Twitter, it was the most recommended book by far.

Now I see why.

1. The narration was exceptionally good. (I like autobiography being read by the author, but not all authors are good narrators.)

2. It's legitimately funny.

3. It's legitimately thoughtful and insightful.

I'll also say that I read this book cold. I didn't really know who Tina Fey was when I picked it up. I had a dim awareness of her being one of the SNL people, and an actress. But that's it.

I also didn't know she was in charge of 30 Rock. (A show I've seen exactly one episode of.) So I didn't come into this book as a fan. I became a fan by listening to it.

I'm probably one of the few people that's going to start watching the show because of the book, rather than the other way around.

I suspect that some of the low-to-mediocre ratings on here might come from people who were expecting her personal voice to be more like that of the character she plays. That understandable (but unreasonable) expectation probably caused them some disappointment.

Also, the book has some feminist leanings. And that's going to piss some people off, even if they don't admit it. More's the pity.
