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 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!
Laugh out loud
Tina - it's her autobiography!
I've just seen her in interview and on television. This was just as funny as I expected, if not more.
I was laughing out loud many, many times.
If you are a fan of Tina even the slightest, you owe it to yourself to check out this audiobook.
The beginning is the most funny, but the middle and the end are still pretty hilarious. The best part is that Tina Fey actually narrates it. She's so funny and the book is laugh out loud for the most part.
This book is actually better as an audiobook. Tina Fey reading her own jokes make it so much better. Obviously her humor comes across stronger with the timing she intended for it.
I listened to the book because of the high praise in its reviews. I found the book very focused to an American Public and not very funny, I guess that the problem is that for non-americans there is no context for understanding the jokes or stories told.
I would definitely NOT recommend the book if you do not live in the United States.
I would try another book from Tina Fey, but I feel as though she has stretched herself too thin on this one.
I'm sure she has many funny stories to tell, but these aren't them. The book is more like stream of consciousness observations, not that well thought out or refined.
I am a huge fan of David Sedaris.
