Once in a generation a woman comes along who changes everything. Tina Fey is not that woman, but she met that woman once and acted weird around her.

Before 30 Rock, Mean Girls, and 'Sarah Palin', Tina Fey was just a young girl with a dream: a recurring stress dream that she was being chased through a local airport by her middle-school gym teacher. She also had a dream that one day she would be a comedian on TV. She has seen both these dreams come true.

I wanted to like this, I wanted to so badly. But instead of being treated with a delightfully witty retelling of the events that shaped her, this book is just forced one-sided "feminist" perspectives and relishing in how fabulously stereotypically every person in her life who wasn't straight was. If you want something enjoyable that doesn't make you feel disgusted, keep looking

For decades we've been told that positive thinking is the key to a happy, rich life. "F*ck positivity," Mark Manson says. "Let's be honest, shit is f*cked, and we have to live with it." In his wildly popular Internet blog, Manson doesn't sugarcoat or equivocate. He tells it like it is - a dose of raw, refreshing, honest truth that is sorely lacking today. The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck is his antidote to the coddling, let's-all-feel-good mind-set that has infected modern society and spoiled a generation, rewarding them with gold medals just for showing up.

I'm sorry, but it's true, Mark has absolutely no clue how to write. I got this audiobook after reading excerpts from his website, expecting this to be of the same quality. Now, I'm almost certain that the "excerpts from the book" were ghost written, because the rest of this sad excuse at an anti-self-help book are condescending rants that somehow have absolutely nothing of value to say. I'll give the narrator credit though, he has an engaging voice and does the best with the material that he can, but unfortunately that's still not good enough
