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)
Very funny and it takes my mind off my busy life to listen to her busy life.
I didn't read the book yet.
Tina is so funny. It was a fun read. As a boss myself I found some management tips.
Tina Fey brings her personality to the performance (and SNL clip). I looked forward to the drive into the office just so that I could hear more. Thank you for making me laugh.
I laughed out loud frequently.
Having it read by Tina Fey!
Very funny, very Tina.
Her ability to laugh at herself
I often laughed out loud
This is the first audio book I've ever listened to and I found it was a great way to keep awake on a long drive. Having it read by the author was a real bonus.
A little more personal background, a little less professional detal.
I think Ms. Fey writes the way she thinks, so my luke-warm response is not due to a lack of writing skill.
Peppy. Direct. Shrill.
I thought the scenes were appropriate within the subject matter. I'm simply not interested in the subject.
I admire what I know of Tina Fey's rise to the top of her profession. I think she is a gifted comedienne. Comedy is not my forte, I watch neither SNL nor Thirty Rock, so I'm not a good judge of this book.
Tina Fey is the star
Lots of excitement in her voice.
Definitely laugh. It is a comedy, right?
I might listen again. She is very clever and I can't help but laugh.
I thought her characterization of a
Tina Fey truly shines in this autobiographical account of her life. She is able to bring the humor and insight that has made her so popular on TV perfectly on to the written page. Her rendition of her own words adds so much to the experience, allowing you to truly understand how she felt about these events in her life. One of the best parts is how she makes a point about popular culture today, while also being scathingly funny. My favorite audiobook purchase so far.
Entertaining, fun, light
Bossypants reminds me of some of David Sedaris honest appraisal of life and his amusing perspective on it.
Tina Fey brings her comedic tone and timing to the reading of her own work, which helps to communicate some of the humor which might be lost if I just read it myself.
My husband and I laughed out loud with this book.
Even though I don't watch television and some of the references were difficult to get (such as references to her show 30 Rock) there were still plenty of parts that were highly entertaining, particularly Tina's take on being a working mother.
The best part of this book is hearing Tina Fey talk about her life. She is very funny, in the self-deprecating way that is her classic style. The highlight was hearing the live performance on SNL of Amy Poehler as Hilary Clinton and Tina Fey as Sarah Palin.
Otherwise, the story was mildly interesting and the humor kept me going.
Bossypants is a fun listen and worth the time.
