Even though I have the print version of this book, I'm really glad I listened to the audiobook. Tina reads it as if she was doing it as a stage monologue/soliloquy, and her intonations and voices alone are hysterical, let alone the actual subject matter. Plus there's the bonus audio of her famous SNL sketch with Amy Poehler doing Sarah Palin and Hilary Clinton which enhanced that chapter.

I really enjoyed the political/social commentary on gender issues. She presents the ideas in a very SNL way: 'these are my views on a weighty manner but presented in an offhanded, comedic way so that they don't seem too serious or deep,' but really they are.

The whole book is very entertaining but comes across very open and honest, no glitz or glam. I can see myself reading the book again in a few years.
