    Story
    (16)

    Inspired to extend a helping hand to ambitious women working in corporate America, a veteran executive offers honest, practical, slightly irreverent advice about navigating companies that are run and populated predominately by men: how to interpret their sometimes surprising behavior, avoid common mistakes, flourish with the good guys, deal with the bad guys, and nurture a wonderful, satisfying career in a non-traditional role.

    Story
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Basic 101 for newer managers. Good examples, but not really in depth enough for truely upper level executive women. The author reads the book, she has a soft, monotone voice, almost too soft and monotone for an audio book.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Jennifer K. Crittenden again?

    Perhaps


    Would you be willing to try another one of Jennifer K. Crittenden???s performances?

    Not really a performance, Non Fiction.

    When literature student Anastasia Steele goes to interview young entrepreneur Christian Grey, she encounters a man who is beautiful, brilliant, and intimidating. The unworldly, innocent Ana is startled to realize she wants this man and, despite his enigmatic reserve, finds she is desperate to get close to him. Unable to resist Ana’s quiet beauty, wit, and independent spirit, Grey admits he wants her, too—but on his own terms.

    Kd says: "Really 2.5"
    "Could have been better written..."

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Author could have used a good Thesarus, uses sames descriptive words over and over...but somewhat entertaining.


    What three words best describe Becca Battoe’s voice?

    Younger, inexperienced

    Story
    (11746)

    Before Liz Lemon, before "Weekend Update," before "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. At last, Tina Fey's story can be told....

    Warren says: "Tina Fey broke my new SUV"
    "You will enjoy if you are a Tina Fey Fan"

    Story
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    It was lightly entertaining. Interesting story about her growing up, and how she entered show business.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    A little choppy


    What about Tina Fey???s performance did you like?

    Her reading the book.


    Do you think Bossypants needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Maybe in 10-15 years
