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)
The 30 Rock series is a little boring, but Tina Fey is very funny and reads well.
No. One was good.
Her personal humor and witty repartee.
I listed to Bossypants on a road trip. It was a great book for a drive!
A good pick if you're looking for something humorous and light, especially if you are a SNL or 30 Rock fan.
I'm pretty new to the audio book trend. I found myself sitting in traffic more and more and decided to do something other than listen to commercials on the radio.
Of the few that I've listened to this one has made me laugh the most, was read in a wonderful way, and had me rewinding (safely at stoplights I swear) to listen to chapters again.
Having the author read it herself brings a great amount extras to it. Sarcasm and tones that might have been missed otherwise just add to the great narrative.
Thanks Tina Fey, from one awkward adult to another.
Listening to the story in the authors own voice.
Yes, it was hard to turn it off when my trip was over.
Very funny and real, especially fantastic with Tina Fey's voice reading the book. As an avid 30 Rock fan, this book was more than perfectly what I was looking for!
Tina Fey's style is just so very enjoyable.
Hmm....It wasn't as much a character as it was Tina describing working with different people.
I laughed out loud often during the car ride while listening to Tina.
The time just flew by on a 10 hour car ride. Thank you Tina Fey!
Say something about yourself!
Unlikely tale about a bright, funny but somewhat shy young lady who gets sucked by serendipity into the limelight of the 2008 battle between good and evil (or at least smart&green vs white&really stupid).
Nobody could have made up something like this. Compound probability gives proof that Providence deliberately set this up as the greatest "gottcha" since the roasting of Jim and Tammy Baker
Tina trying to Host Opra, Do Sarah and be a good mom on the same day.
Walking from place to place at work with earbuds in laughing like I was 2 PEEPS SHORT OF AN EASTER BASKET!
This book was a great break from the typically lengthy more serious novels I listen to. Tina is a uniquely funny lady. Overall I enjoyed it a good deal.
Not really, it just wasn't as good as I thought, but it wasn't necessarily bad. I Love Tina but I'm not a huge fan, I didn't want 30 rock regularly anyway. I think you have to really love 30 Rock to love the book as the book was mostly about the show and how she made it big and did the show. I love that she's such a modern day women's libber.
I wish she would have told us how her face got slashed. She shouldn't have even brought it up. I never even noticed her scar before. It was a teaser.
I loved reading about King Arthur and Knights of the round table when I was a wee lad. Now I am older and love Game of Thrones!
How Tina can make you smile, or laugh but not turn you off with expletives, or putting people down. She talks about her life, some of the shiny moments, and those that happened, but she never let them keep her down. Its definately a good book to enjoy.. you can read a chapter, and return to it in a week, and not be upset that you forgot something from before. A great audio book for a road trip with spouse, or we found with our teenage kids.
There were many, but think the point where she was so exhausted filming "30 Rock," planning her daughters birthday party, and filming SNL... and Oprah asks her if she's spread herself a tad to slim.. its great.. we all do things like that.Or where she lets some people unmentioned that have jars of urine in there offices!
DUH- No brainer- Sarah Palin!
15 minutes of fame that people won't forget.
I never realized how she had been a writer for SNL, long before Lorne Michael put her in front of the camera, and how her career took off with the comedy team of her and Amy Poeller and doing politics (Sarah Palin). And of course how much 30 Rock was enjoyed by millions.
