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!

"I hope that's not really the cover. That's really going to hurt sales." (Don Fey, Father of Tina Fey)
"Do not print this glowing recommendation of Tina Fey's book until I've been dead a hundred years." (Mark Twain)
"Hilarious and insightful. Laugh-out-loud funny - oh no, a full moon. No! Arrgh! Get away from me! Save yourself!" (A Guy Turning into a Werewolf)
I enjoyed some laughs and Tina Fey's narration. But, sometimes the jokes got old, and I got tired of hearing her perspective. I'm not sure what I was expecting, but listening to the book was like sitting next to a person that constantly speaks about themselves and their opinions. Thankfully she is funny and can tell a good story. But, by the end, I was more than ready to move on. If you like memoirs, this might be a good choice - if not, I'd try something else.
I'm sure I will. It's hilarious!
I think most people can relate to her. She talks about growing up, being awkward, working, getting old, etc. Plus, I just really like Tina Fey. I mean, who doesn't?
It's probably not a good idea to listen to this around other people with your ear buds in. You will look like a crazy person when you bust out in laughter. Trust me. Although, I did offer an ear bud to a friend on a flight to Chicago. It's okay to look crazy, if you have someone to look crazy with you, right?
Tina Fey Is wonderfully hilarious and her life, prior to becoming a star, was just a normal life. The story is light and doesn't require your full attention, so you can listen while putting on your face, driving, cooking, etc.
Only having seen her on SNL. I can't really compare her in character to her in reality.
I laughed, a lot.
A credit well spent.
Say something about yourself!
A realistic feminist book
Tina's personal growth
Women in the work place, and her daugther.
She is Empowering without beig a crazy feminist. In a funny way she explains how can you be the boss without losing yourself.
Listened to this book on a long drive and loved every second. Like watching an 6 hour stand up comedy show. Literally laughed out loud while stuck in traffic, my car neighbors though I had lost it. Must listen if you, like me, are a Liz Lemon fan. Enjoy!
I love literary books! When it comes to audible though, I love non-fiction. I intend to try a lot more regardless. :)
I was a beginner at Audible and I wanted to try something that would not deter my attention away from the person reading, so I picked the marvelous, Tina Fey. Knowing that she is a very funny lady, I knew that I wouldn't be disappointed with my choice.
I wouldn't have said that her book was riviting, nor would I say that the chapters were very long or expertly written, but I would say that she had a way of telling her story that made the reader interested. She talked mostly about her life, how it shaped her into the person she is today. It's just as simple as that. It is a book that can be listened to in quick snippets, like washing the dishes, or switching a load of laundry. It wasn't a book that you had to listen to continuously and so you didn't have ot worry where the story stopped. Overall, it was a good book, read by the author who spoke about her own points of view and this is what made it enjoyable.
Short, funny, and so perfect, I really enjoyed reading Bossypants. It's definitely one of the best non-fiction audiobooks I've listened to.
Clearly, Tina Fey.
She's so funny and despite what she says, I think she does great impressions.
I laughed a lot.
I liked Tina Fey from Saturday Night Live and some of her movies, but really didn't know much about her, other than she is pretty funny. This book does not disappoint. I laughed out loud so many times. This is a great book.
