Audible Editor Reviews

Why we think it's Essential - Witty, finely-crafted, and meant to be heard, Bossypants is one of my favorite audiobooks of all time. Tina Fey knows how to deliver a good punch-line – and does so hilariously throughout her memoir. Her self-deprecating humor shines through, and this half-memoir, half-stand-up routine left me laughing for all in the subway car to hear. From her days in the Second City comedy troupe, to Saturday Night Live, to Hollywood, Fey's stories and memories will leave you in stitches. —Jess

Publisher's Summary

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 of those dreams come true.

At last, Tina Fey's story can be told. From her youthful days as a vicious nerd to her tour of duty on Saturday Night Live; from her passionately halfhearted pursuit of physical beauty to her life as a mother eating things off the floor; from her one-sided college romance to her nearly fatal honeymoon - from the beginning of this paragraph to this final sentence.

Tina Fey reveals all, and proves what we've all suspected: you're no one until someone calls you bossy.

Includes special, never-before-solicited opinions on breastfeeding, princesses, Photoshop, the electoral process, and Italian rum cake!

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

    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!

    "Funny. Probably even funnier in print"

    No doubt a comic genius. Self-deprecating all the way.
    Loved the autobiographical perspective and all the cultural references.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Bossypants to be better than the print version?

    I would. I loved hearing Tina Fey narrate her own book. It added a lot to what was being said.

    Story
    "Inspirational, Cunning, Unexpectedly Classic"
    Would you listen to Bossypants again? Why?

    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.


    What about Tina Fey’s performance did you like?

    Tina's performance was as stunning in audio form as in person. She's awesome.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Yes. It was inspirational. I laughed so much I cried.


    Any additional comments?

    Male or female, you MUST read and/or listen to this book. It will make your perspective on everything better.

    "Five hours never passed so fast!"
    Would you listen to Bossypants again? Why?

    I am positive I will listen to Bossypants again. Its so very funny without being cutting or mean spirited. I didn't know much about Tina Fey before this book but will be seeking out more of her, because she brings to much humor and honesty to the game.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    I didn't want it to end! My reaction was "more please"


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I loved hearing about the genesis of the Sarah Palin character.

    Story
    "Imagine T. Fey is your BFF and lives in your iPod!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    YES. YES. YES. As a young woman just out of college, Tina Fey's tales about crappy first jobs and the struggles of hair removal were just what I needed! She followed her passion to an amazing and fulfilling life, and I found her 'wit and wisdom' to be incredibly refreshing and inspiring.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Bossypants?

    As a big fan of both 30 Rock and SNL, I absolutely adored hearing the behind-the-scenes scoop. Her detailed description of each 30 Rock writer and their respective MVP episodes taught me a lot about both the show and the TV "biz" in general.


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

    I originally bought a hard copy of the book but loved the first chapter so much that I was dying to hear her read it. Best decision of the summer!

    Story
    "Tina Fey, you did it again."

    I read this book when it first came out a few years ago, and I enjoyed it even more listening to it the second time around.

    Hearing Tina read aloud was even better than the voice I had for her in my head when I read the paper copy. I laughed out loud most of the time listening, and when I wasn't laughing, there was a big-ass smile on my face. No one is more honest about life than Tina Fey, and every woman will identify with her story in some way or another, guaranteed. She even includes little anecdotes and audio from her SNL skits that aren't part of the physical copy of the book.

    No summer beach book will ever top this one.
