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)
Hilarious! Well written and very well performed by the author.
I absolutely love Tina Fey. This book is a joy.
I would definitely listen to this again. First and foremost, because I laughed... a lot. Secondly, because Fey's writing is both extremely funny and insightful. The final reason is a bit negative. I would listen to it again because I had to since there were many times her voice trailed off into mumbling (for the effect of humor) and was not understandable - at least to me.
There were too many to recount, though I loved her stories about her father... especially his two most used words - inexcusable and defective (with a bulls**t thrown in there as well).
The SNL skit of Tina Fey and Amy Poehler as Palin and Clinton (respectively).
Extremely enjoyable. I love that her politics (which this is not a political book but her thoughts do come through pretty loud and clear) are informed by personal experiences rather than an ideology handed down to her from her family of origin.
I'm a big fan of 30 Rock so I really enjoyed hearing a bit more about Tina Fey's life and career. I don't listen to autobiographies often but since I enjoy her sense of humour I thought it was worth a try. I was not disappointed. The book is witty and well written. I enjoyed it thoroughly and broke into laughter more than once.
Best was it was funny. I purchased because I love comedy.
Least was it was more about women's rights to work alongside men in showbusiness. Not what I thought it would be about.
Yes, her delivery was priceless!
Everything, she was very engaging.
It was nice to hear how she tranitioned through life and I appreciated how frank and honest she was. Very refreshing.
I recommended the book to many people in print, but the audible book was pure entertainment!
Yes, she does a very good job. She makes you feel like you are getting to know her.
This was a really good book. Having it read by Tina makes it that much more enjoyable. It did get a little long at some points. Overall, a great book.
Smart. Rapid. Entertaining.
Her impersonation of Paul Lynde will make milk shoot out of your nose.
Describing her Dad.
Watch 30 Rock. Please.
Best biographical journey by a comedian of 2011.

PLEASE SAVE A CREDIT
What I loved best about Bossypants was that Tina Fey, herself, narrated the book. It was like commuting to work with Tina in the car with me.
I enjoyed the hilarious, candid way Tina shared her life with her audience. She reminded me of myself and my friends during our awkward stages of growing up and in later years. We joked about some of the exact things Tina Fey does!
Tina Fey as herself, of course!
Oh my gosh, it made me laugh out loud, every DAY. I would save it for the commute into work as it made the time FLY by. I imagine I was the only commuter on that packed highway laughing and smiling on her way to work.
Tina Fey, please WRITE MORE BOOKS!!!!
