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 guess I expected it to be more entertaining than it actually was.
I don't know
At the top
I like that she calls blonds yellow hairs
Yes. And this book was more entertaining, though I love her other stuff too.
When she was talking about daughter.
I laughed out loud many times during this book, but there are a few sections of the book that go into detail about characters from SNL and 30 Rock that probably would not be as funny if you do not watch those shows.
As a Tina Fey fan, I had high hopes for the book, and it completely delivered Not just a collection of anecdotes, but the story of Tina's childhood and road to the successful woman she is today. Of course her truthful, hysterical, friend in my head method of narrating the book is the deal breaker. I love how this was unexpectedly a girl power book while never meaning to be. Tina Fey, newly elevated BEST friend in my head, I love you.
I listened to this book while driving and literally had to pull to the side of the road because I was laughing so hard. Tina Fey delivers a hilarious performance and I enjoyed hearing more about her roots and background. If you're a Tina Fey fan, this is a must-listen.
I LOVE when authors read their own books! Tina Fey is a true actor and it comes out in every word of her book. Her words are incredibly full of life and inflection and innuendo and overall I found Bossypants easy to follow, and hard to put down!
Responding to fan mail she found on completely random message boards on the net. Man, i wish I could take criticism with that kind of grace.
She has talent and a great sense of humor. Why does she have to be so crude and use foul language? I saw the extremely high ratings and bought it, then began listening to it with others around and nearly broke my leg trying to get to my computer to turn it off when the crude language began. Is it just so part of everyone's life that it's not a big deal anymore? Sorry, it's not my thing and I wish it would have contained a warning saying, "Explicit language".
It wasnt the story, it was the build up from other reviewers that left me disappointed. It was kinda funny, but I didnt almost wreck my car over it.
I am a huge Tina Fey fan. But I wanted to hear more about her life not about babys and mom stuff. The parts about her being a mom and her family were great! But there was a lot of irrelevant topics that I could tell was just "book filler". The book was funny! But I had more fun reading Sarah Silvermans "the Bedwetter" and Rachel Dratchs "Girl walks into a bar" books. Those were great! No matter what though I still love Tina Fey too!
