Through the humor in this book we also feel the inspiration. I loved her reaction to the pamphlet "Growing Up and Liking it." I remember my mother handing me the same pamphlet when I hit puberty. My best friend Harriet and I secreted ourselves away for two days reading it as if it was a porno magazine. Looking back, the advise was silly and the descriptions far from understandable, but as Ms. Fey explained, a girl knew she reached womanhood when her mom handed her that book.
I loved reading about her growing up, jobs in show business, dating and marriage. Her descriptions about the differences in men and women in show business are hilarious. She even managed to make her honeymoon interesting to the reader. It is not just one joke after another though. She lets us see her struggles to balance her family and work life...a struggle most women face daily. She doesn't let us in on major shocking Tina Fey secrets; instead she lets us know, with great humor, what her life is all about.
It may be me, but I think we all need a bit of Tina Fey humor in our lives.
