I want to be clear, this is NOT a full length biography that runs on for pages and pages; instead it is a concise accounting of Fey's life. It details her background, family life, her time in school, Second City, SNL, and her life up to and after 30 Rock. It does not dwell on any particular time period too long. It provides a thumbprint in each area of her life, and allows you to see how she transformed from a gawky kid into the confident woman she is today.
This is not a bad thing. Fey's own autobiography probably has more punchlines than it provides information on the substance of her life. This is a great audio to let you know more about Fey in a short period of time. This means it is good for a jaunty car ride, trip on a train, or even a half hour walk around town. I've read a lot of comedian's biographies, and this provides a great bare bone set of details.
It would also be great if you were a student writing a paper, as it is chock full of facts, and does run up to the present day. It leaves nothing out , and even includes her thoughts on motherhood to her philanthropic works.
The narration is paced well, and is delivered matter of factly, it does not try to provide you with a set up and punch line followed by a rim shot. It states interesting facts about Fey's life, and does so in a way that keeps your attention. The only thing I fault the story for is that I think there might be a few spaces where some more details could have been provided. That, however is nitpicking.
If you enjoy biographies or Fey you will be happy you picked up this book.

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.
Very brief but interesting biography of Tina Fey, mainly focused on college and her career.
It had pretty pleasant narration, and it was really clear.
