I liked it. I felt like a majority of it was written in a way to facilitate "the punch line", which made it fun to weird, but tonally weird when she was going for deeply serious/contemplative moments. But still a fun read. I can't help comparing it to Mindy Kaling's book since I read them back to back (if there's one thing I've learned from reading both books is that there is room for both and they are not in competition which each other any more then they are with male comedy writers) but for whatever reason I liked Kaling's better. Maybe it's a simple matter of having read that one first. I dunno. Worth a read if you're interested in Tina Fey or SNL or "making it" in comedy.
