I laughed reading this - a lot more than I thought I would. Fey's discussion of Photoshop, since I get all the emails at work complaining about lack of wrinkles, was the best. (Summary: It's like some people consider abortion - a blight on our moral character, until that person needs one. Also that anorexia rates will go up in people over 70, since only people over 70 are fooled by Photoshop.)

Mostly though I liked the ambitious bits. I thought there would be more mommy stuff (it's really only a couple of chapters) and it was kind of pleasant that mostly it really was about Fey's career and just a lot of humour. Thumbs up.

Jody Seim Timmins I found the photoshop argument less convincing, if only because she ignores the crazy market for red-carpet photos. How are you going to look cover-good on the red carpet, without having a little filler there, a little pulling there? But then again, _that's_ all gotten so egregious that even the seventy-year olds know what's up. (Maybe especially the seventy year olds.)
