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)
This book does not compare to any other book. I wish this wasn't the first audio book I'd ever listened to, because now no other book will be as good.
I especially loved hearing about her growing up years. I enjoyed getting a glimpse into the ungainly upbringing of Tina Fey.
Tina's recount of her transition into womanhood.
Awesome that it was narrated by Tina Fey! No one else would be able to convey her sense of humor better than herself.
"My test of a good book is dreading to begin the last chapter." - Thomas Helm
I like Tina Fey, she's funny. I enjoy movies w/her in them & her sarcastic humor. She's extremely witty. However, I wasn't fond of her consistant swearing. I'm not sure what I expected. The book is funny.
Her animation and personality!
No, but did listen to the first chapter in one sitting!
Singed up for the membership, and used my free download for this book after listening to the first five minutes!!!!
Bossypants is great. Tina Fey is consistently smart and funny. The book is well paced and full of her self-deprecating humor.
Mom, full time job, long commute. Love audio books!
What can I say about Tina Fey? She is such a gifted performer! Even if you've read her book already you must listen to the audiobook. Tina brings it to life and she is total comedy magic. What a hoot! I've already listened to this book twice through and I know I'll be enjoying it periodically in years to come. Such a gem!
The fact that Tina Fey narrates this herself adds so much to the text...her cadence and intonation make it even funnier to listen to.
I loved her chapter about Don Fey....Unacceptable! SO funny and she seems to have so much respect and love for him.
Loved all of the references to being a teenage girl in the 80s. Anyone who grew up during this time will appreciate the references.
I guess I should have expected good and humorous (and self-deprecating) writing from a writer and star from Saturday Night Live. She delivered. A thoroughly enjoyable read.
I'm a mother, a teacher and terribly dyslexic. I spend a lot of my time listening to podcast, or audiobooks whilst doing other boring tasks.
As you would expect, this is a very funny book. I was laughing alot on public transport...which is some what embarrassing as everyone stares at you. She's funny and insightful at the same time. It's totally worth listening to if you want to laugh out loud on a bus and have everyone stare at you.
I loved this audiobook. I'd listen to it again especially if I had a long drive coming up.
Tina's stories are great & you feel like you're getting a "behind the scenes" on everything you've seen her in on tv.
Give this book a try. You'll be glad you did.
