Arrrgh, disappointing. I enjoyed the chapter about Don Fey, and the one about the honeymoon cruise from hell, but the rest of it was a mess. It wasn’t personal enough to be a memoir, or to be commentary on successful women in comedy, it wasn’t in-depth enough to be an inside-show-business story, and it wasn’t funny enough to be a comic anything. It felt like a dinner party conversation. Sure, there were some anecdotes and a few funny lines, but otherwise it was all just superficial chit-chat. There have been episodes of 30 Rock that said more than this book.
