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.

Sara Gottfried is a very smart & great at bringing information to woman.
Narration was not suited to book, to high pitched & sounded like a teenager talking about a middle age subject.
She is much more suited to romance.
Found voice irritating. Sara has a lovely & calming voice & I wish she narrated her own book.

Like an urban Dian Fossey, Wednesday Martin decodes the primate social behaviors of Upper East Side mothers in a brilliantly original and witty memoir about her adventures assimilating into that most secretive and elite tribe. After marrying a man from the Upper East Side and moving to the neighborhood, Wednesday Martin struggled to fit in. Drawing on her background in anthropology and primatology, she tried looking at her new world through that lens, and suddenly things fell into place.

Nice narration.
Fun book but very similar to the Nanny Diaries.
Really tells the story of ridiculousness.

The scientifically proven route to enriching and enhancing your state of mind. Emma Young has no history of mental illness; just like everyone else, occasionally she gets down, anxious, and disproportionately stressed. Disappointed that her mind does not always deal well with the pressures of modern life, Emma decided to go on a mind-toning journey. Is it possible to tone your mind just as you can tone your body so it becomes more resilient and better prepared to deal with what life throws at you?

Information was very interesting and well researched but was let down by a very terse & uptight voice more suited to fiction than a self help book.
Sounded like I was being disciplined by my headmaster. And awful fake accents when quoting other people.

Overworked? Exhausted? Powering between career, family, and friends and frazzled and libido-less as a result? No wonder you're moody! But as New York psychiatrist Julie Holland explains in her radical and eye-opening new book, the first step to overcoming the lows is to accept that being testy is in our nature - we were made to be Moody B--hes. Being a successful modern woman is hard, and for so many of us the constant flux in our hormones and the dips and dives our mood swings take make it that much harder.

What Does it mean to feel truly alive? Aged 24, Matt Haig's world caved in. He could see no way to go on living. This is the true story of how he came through crisis, triumphed over an illness that almost destroyed him and learned to live again. A moving, funny and joyous exploration of how to live better, love better and feel more alive, Reasons to Stay Alive is more than a memoir. It is a book about making the most of your time on earth.

Simply brilliant for those in, out or somewhat passing through your own head. Not a scary or confronting read for those of us still in the dark. And not a preaching bible either. Thank You.
This should be compulsory reading for teenagers.
This book won't cure you but it will speak to you just when you need it.
