Down To Earth
I have none to compare
couldn't put it down . Finished it in one sitting.. And yes it made me laugh.
A great comic, Ms. Fey is also a great reader with superb timing and good pace. Her text felt a wee bit thin and rushed, as if assembled to ride on the coat tails of some event, perhaps her well justified Palin send-up. But it's worth every penny to purchase and every minute to hear.
Suit smelling like sweat and alcohol
Come on! It's Tina Fey! Her inflections and her voices make it a million times better!
She curses throughout the book.
Bossypants is, by far, the worst audiobook I've ever listened to (over 200). I don't know why it has such high reviews or has been listed as a best seller for so long. My opinion of Tina Fey has completely changed. Wow. She's quite enamored with herself. Which would by okay (since this is her book) if the stories were interesting or compelling in any way. Not funny, not touching. I am actually angry that I listened to this book.
Please stay away!! An audio version of the phone book would be more entertaining than Bossypants.
I thought this would be great to read because I admire all Tina Fey has been able to do, but she talks too fast and it it just rambles on chronologically through her life. I have restarted twice, and have now given up on ever finishing it.
I loved it. Was so happy to listen to it in my car, instead of the news.
She's just so sweet and funny.
Laugh quite a bit :)
This is a high speed story of Tina's experience and life. It made me laugh as not many books have and though not the deepest story out there it's a great for keeping e road rage in check and kept me listening.
It just wasn't that funny.
Most jokes were just mildly amusing tidbits about things I cared little about.
Despite the short length the jokes seemed few and far between.
Possibly, but I'd probably not buy one written by her.
There were a few funny bits but too much space between.
Fey does an ok job as a narrator.
Yes, quirky, honest play by play of behind the scenes
Hire good people and stay out of there way.
Women aren't funny or are they?

Tina Fey is a fantastic writer, narrator, and--from what I can tell--person. I often enjoy listening to authors read their work, and Fey is one of the best I've heard.
I loved the critical reflection Fey engaged in throughout the book. I was probably most engaged in her commentary on motherhood. I wish all moms could somehow be forced to listen to her advice. Really I just want to make every woman I know read this book and follow Fey's advice that we should try to be a bit nicer to one another.
