Frankly “Bossypants” was as disappointment for me. Tina Fey is obviously smart, insightful, and witty but, a little Tina Fey humor goes a long way. By the end of the audio book (over five hours) the humor struck me as strident, caustic and snarky. This is, of course, a matter of opinion and mine may be in the minority. For me a biography or memoir should reveal something about the person that is not evident in their work or public life and this was the true disappointment for me. By the end of a memoir, I want to know the person better; do I like them or dislike them; admire them; envy them; understand them. This book gives a caricature of Tina Fey; aspect of her life and career seemed distorted and exaggerated to serve the humor in the book. In the end, I didn’t know anything significant about the author that couldn’t be gleaned from the internet or watching her on TV. If you are looking for a funny book and you are a Tina Fey fan, then this book is for you. Also, Tina Fey does a fine job in narrating her work. If you are looking for a “real” biography or memoir, then you may be disappointed, as I was.
Very very funny :-)
Loved the story on baby and breast feeding, so totally agree with Fey ...
Yes, I would recommend this book to a friend, if I had any.
I like Tina Fey. After listening to this book, I feel like she is my new best friend. She is smart, funny, and very human. She is now my role model, even though I think she's younger than me.
I promise not to be a stalker.
I did not listen to this book all in one sitting. I was busy packing to move to a new house. It was like having a friend keeping me company. I was glad to save some to listen to later.
Don't miss the PDF. She frequently mentions pictures that are in it. I tried to look at it on my iPad, but it wouldn't open. After I finished the book, I looked them up on my laptop.
It would have been better to look at them as they were mentioned.
This book made me laugh out loud pretty much every five minutes. I love Tina Fey and it was a treat to hear her read this very funny book.
Tina delivers an amazingly hilarious story with just the right balance of humor and thought provoking insights
I love Tina Fey's intelligent humor. More laughs per page than any book so far.
This is a very entertaining, well written, hilarious book. Tina Fey does an incredible job reading her story. I haven't laughed out loud this much in quite awhile. Loved it!
I would. I loved hearing Tina Fey narrate her own book. It added a lot to what was being said.
Absolutely. This book, while having no desire or need to do so, has become my favorite go-to in the world of the working mommy. Tina is self-deprecating in the most comical way, and teaches us more in this novel than all the self-help books out there could ever hope to do. Kudos, Tina Fey. I hope I can bring up my daughter to have as much moxie, self-confidence, and self-awareness as you have and had.
Tina's performance was as stunning in audio form as in person. She's awesome.
Yes. It was inspirational. I laughed so much I cried.
Male or female, you MUST read and/or listen to this book. It will make your perspective on everything better.
