I'm so glad I got the audiobook version of this book, because hearing Tina Fey herself read the book (and do various impressions) made it an even better experience than it already would've been. I absolutely *adored* this book. Fey is brilliant and hilarious, with sometimes startling insight into contemporary gender issues. Some chapters I had to listen to more than once, because they were just so good (That's Don Fey, I Don't Care if You Like It). I'm sure I will be listening to some of them again and again. Some of Fey's observations as a female comic in a male comic world are relevant to any woman working in a male-dominated field (as I am). Her observations about motherhood are pretty golden too.

I try to be judicious about handing out 5 stars. This book more than merited it. Hooray for Fey!

Diane like! Now I wish I had heard it too. I read it the 'regular' way and it was a great experience. still thinking about the rules of improv.

Anne Audiobook FTW! Definitely the way to go with this one.
