It's upbeat and funny. I now have insights into the field of entertainment that never occured to me before.
I can't think of a comparison.
She brings the book alive.
I liked the audiobook, but I don't think I would listen to it again. It was good and I enjoyed Tina Fey as narrator, I rarely listen to this type of book twice.
I really enjoyed Rob Lowe's autobiography - Stories I Only Tell My Friends. I highly encourage you to get this one, I liked it even better than Bossy Pants.
Tina brought her humor and emotion as it is her story it is great listening to her narrate.
Lots of great and funny moments.
all of it. the content, Tina Fey's voice. It was muy fabuloso.
one I might write.
Her unique voice which animates the stories so effectively.
no. they were all good.
I want to re-read/listen!
It's the best.
That would be when Tina talked about breast feeding.
I loved that she was really natural.
Not really, but I can tell you though that when she talked about her scar, in the beginning and later answering some stupid question, I felt how she accepted it, one of her defects, and that made me relate to her.
I picked this book up because I've recently been watching a lot of 30 Rock and I find Tina Fey very funny and entertaining. The book was not a disappointment. In fact it brought me the joking, but still insightful words of wisdom that I was hoping to find in it. Having it read to me by Tina herself only added to the effect of her words because I got to hear them delivered as she intended them to be rather than how I would read them on my own. I would have listened to it straight through, but I had to do silly little things like work. You should buy this and I hope you enjoy it as much as I did and will again shortly.
Have to read
Mindy Kaling's Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? because both women wrote hilarious books, without worrying about whether it would make them sound stupid, smart or hot. They are both genuinely funny women who share that without trying too hard.
She never lets you down. She is just plain funny.. always
You're gunna pee your Bossypants.
Love this book!
Yes, certain chapters, avoiding the sections where she overly uses the word C--T...like, at all.
Tin Fey is my favorite character. She's only a year or so older than I am, so I can relate to much of her growing up experiences. Paralleling her years, I look what she's accomplished, and when, and I think -- "she didn't mess around half as much as I did, and look where it got her." I really admire her drive.
I don't really know how to distinguish this question from the last, but I also liked how she talked about her dad. Our dads appear to be similar, but hers seems a bit more hip.
I never cried, but I laughed A LOT.
There's more to Tina Fey than her hilarious, self-deprecating style. She has drive, she cares about people, she makes no excuses -- she has to know that she's awesome.
Tina's delivery ... it gave a whole other level of funny to the story.
Tina's interpretation of the "becoming a woman" pamphlet. Climbing Rag Mountain. Her first job. Learning that if I'm ever on a cruise ship I should make really good friends with the Entertainment Crew...so they don't shoot me on a lifeboat later.
Her comedic timing and inflection.
I loved how she talked about her Dad. I want to meet Don Fey! Also, there is a part that talks about how learning to be a good improv partner can be applied to being a good partner in love, friendship etc. For example - always be open to the possibility they are creating, don't leave them hanging, contribute. I've thought about that a chapter a lot.
This book was funny, real, honest. I've listened to it twice already and it will be one that I will come back to again and again.
63-year-old reading and writing tutor. Lives with 1 husband, 1 dog, 2 cats, 5 chickens, and lots of honeybees. Love to read (obviously), sew, grow food, and eat it.
I already have recommended it a few times. The book is just plain fun! Tina's navigation through teenaged theater, career, and motherhood resonated with me.
Tina, of course!
I was moved by Tina's obvious love for her parents and all of her family. But mostly, I was just moved to laughter and there isn't anybody that can't benefit from a good laugh.
