I'm a Graphic Designer in my mid 20's who loves to read. I used to commute over an hour to and from school 5 days a week. Now my job has me commute an hour and a half 5 days a week, so I should get a lot done.

    Story

    This book is an analytical & anecdotal look at the design business that is in a dire need of an update (It's over a decade out of date).

    I was personally looking forward to listening to this, I like books about design in general. However with this book's focus being on the business side (some information is still relevant today) with anecdotes from those 60 leaders, the value of the business information has diminished immensely.

    It was an average book, got some nice insights out of it but overall it is antiquated.

    Story

    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....

    Story
    Where does Bossypants rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    First off, it's a great read/listen. Tina Fey does an excellent job of reading and writing her Bossypants. I just went into it thinking there would be more laughs; What I got instead was light on the laughs and heavy on the heartfelt. Touching, honest and pretty funny, Tina Fey made a really nice experience.


    What other book might you compare Bossypants to and why?

    It reminded me a lot of Zombie, Spaceship, Wasteland by Patton Oswalt. I also expected that book to also be "Funny", but was incredibly heartfelt and enjoyable.


    What does Tina Fey bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I think her performance and delivery of her own material give her personal experiences weight and volume. If someone else read this it would sound flat and disingenuous.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    There's a part in the book where she talks about her relationship with her dad.


    Any additional comments?

    Pick this book up if you like hearing about amazing people working hard and being successful. It's an honest boook.
