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!

This book left me laughing so hard I had to rewind multiple times so I wouldn't miss anything. It was hysterical.
I love that Tina Fey tells it like it is in her book. She sheds a new light on television, motherhood, friendship and more. The audio version is exactly what I expected, a great listen told by the Queen of Clever. Highly recommended.
I don't know if I would have enjoyed the book as much if I'd read it. Listening to Tina read her own words...it's just so real and honest...and very, very funny. I'm anxious to recommend the book to friends who are
Listening to this put me in such a good mood, that when I was driving and someone gave me the finger (undeserved I might add ), I gave her a "thumbs up" sign!!!
I would pay money to be a fly on the wall when she goes through menopause!!
This book is funny and will make you laugh out loud. It is even funnier because Tina reads it herself. Well worth the money and time. I didn't want to to end.
I might recommend it, if the person is closer to Tina's age, they will enjoy and understand the book better.
thats she's talking about her self. makes it very easy to believe!
This book was laugh out loud funny from beginning to end. I thought my wife was goning to wet herself she laughed so much. Tina Fey is just plain funny. But Bossypants was even better than I thought it would be. Very entertaining and insightful.
I liked it. The time passed quickly. I learned about SNL and 30 rock. I was looking for more cohesiveness, however.
No, don't think so. Not on same wavelength.
Her engaging wonderful personality
Nope. Maybe another book with a different focus all together
A nocturnal artist listening long into the lonely night in a South Boston warehouse.
I particularly enjoyed her passages on improvisation and stories about learning how to be an adult. Hilarious and personal; she knows how to tell a life story without boring her listeners.
It was my first audible book and it was a great first read!
Her stories from touring with Second City and her description of her father, Don Fey.
I haven't listened to any others.
Her stories about her Dad.
I highly recommend this as a audio book, but I haven't looked into how to get the pdf. I wish that it downloaded automatically with the audio book onto my ipod!
