Since I am a male, I didn't fully appreciate all of the humor in the book. Kind of like the male writers she describes in her book when she proposed the SNL commercial for Classic Kotex. However, I do not have a jar in my office.
Yes, because it is relevant, and funny!
She is the funniest woman alive. I laughed out loud multiple times and the "mother's prayer for her daughter" is the best. She gets it. Tina, we should be friends, we have a lot in common :)
To all my ladies, all I can say is that this book makes me laugh at myself because I'm laughing at Tina Fey for laughing at herself (and all the silly things she's done in her attempt to be a woman/ feminine/ attractive/ fit into societal standards of being the female gender). It makes me take life less seriously, but be more serious about life (I'm inspired by her dedication to her craft), which is seriously great.
For all the dudes- get some perspective on this funny lady who taps into the psyche of most of the non-supermodel females out there (ok, some super models may share her sentiments as well). And listen because she's a bad ass, and great at what she does- which is make people laugh (while simultaneously causing you to question the foundation of your deepest beliefs). Ok that might be a bit of an exaggeration, but she's got some good "pokes" in there that will leave you pondering.
I liked Tina Fey before listening to her book, but now I like her a lot!! I loved that Tina Fey did the narrating of her book. She's so funny! The book is a great way to get to know Tina better and a facinating look behind the scenes of the TV (SNL, 30 Rock) business.
To a female
Yes with the understanding of what it is about
Nice book, you find your mind wandering from time to time
Performance was fine. Seemed that the audio deviated from the book.
The entire book is very much geared towards people who are American or lived there fore a long time and are into talk shows and the like.
I enjoyed that it was read by the author with several additional remarks specifically relating to the audio version
Yes, it was a good listen
Teacher-Librarian, an a avid audible listener:)
Yes, and I have to everyone! This is a smart, hilarious, down to earth book. I loved every second of it and will be making sure my daughters in college listen to it! This is in my top favorite books, and that is saying a lot because, I am a Librarian and I have quite a collection of favorite books!
Her prayer for her daughter, she nailed every worry that I have for my daughters.
Well, she was not really performing but reading her life, so I guess she is awesome, because the book was so good.
Watch this movie, you will laugh your ass off.....be....
Thank you Tina, you are as inspiring as you are funny.
Not really. This was just an ok book for me. I couldn't really get into it. I want to listen to and read books that I simply cannot be without. You know the ones that you just can't put down? Unfortunately, this one just didn't do it for me.
crisp, clean and nice. Her voice was fine to listen to.
For me, not really.
I might listen to Bossypants again, and the only reason I wouldn't is simply because I have so many books I want to listen to for the first time that I'm unlikely to listen to one a second time. But the book was an easy listen, funny and poignant at the same time, and made me laugh out loud. Having Ms. Fey read her own book was great - I felt like I could see her face as she read it.
I think her exploration of the question "should I have more kids" was the most memorable.
My favorite character was Sarah Palin - because how can you NOT like Sarah Palin by Tina Fey?!
I loved how she recalled how supportive and proud her parents were of her career and how she had a very difficult time conjuring up parents in any different sort of role.
