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)
From how to handle a mix of comedy writers -- 4 Harvard nerds + 4 improv actors -- to how to survive Christmas in Youngstown Ohio, to being in the public spotlight because you impersonated a female VP candidate (GOD FORBID), Tina Fey's Bossy Pants was so funny I had to sometimes turn off my audible download to continue breathing after laughing so hard and out loud! Fey is entertaining in the best of ways, the way that allows her to be smart and self-deprecating at the same time. Her description of her father's incessant need to clean the carpets, yet save money brought me right back to my late 1970's upbringing and to tears of laughter. I also loved her acceptance of her in-laws perception of New York and how it influenced her own perception of NYC "hmm there is a lot of dog poop on east 83rd. Thank you for this inspiring and hilarious book!!! Please write more! YOU insoire me!
So many books, so little time.
I thought this was a throughly enjoyable audiobook. I love that Tina Fey read it herself.
Listening to this best seller on audiobook has be better than reading it. Tina Fey narrates it herself and at times she seemed to customize the telling just for audiobook. Her style is great. I really enjoyed listening to this one.
100% of the books I read are in audible format. I enjoy reading apocalyptic, WWII, psychology, classics, contemporary and non-fiction.
This is a book that will make you laugh throughout -- I don't think it's an easy feat to be able to write like that, but Tina has managed. Those of you who follow her will find her to be just as entertaining in audible as she is on stage. She talks about her early life, life at SNL and 30 Rock -- her current life -- all sort of sprinkled in throughout the book. A true talent. ...in fact, I saw her last night hosting on SNL and she sings, too!
Tina Fey's off-color wit made me laugh out loud. I was a fan from the first page of this book. Just when you think she is getting all meaningful and sappy - she throws out a twisted statement that catches you off guard and sends you into a laughing fit! Wonderful book, Tina Fey. I would recommend this book to all my friends.
I love Tina Fey and think she is very talented and entertaining. I just can't get past the frequent profanity. I had to give the book up before completion.
from laughing out loud or shooting fluids out of places that no human should...
Funny, funny stuff. I have enjoyed listening to this book more than any other I have purchased. I think the fact that Tina Fey is also the narrator makes it even funnier! We all need a good laugh, and this book definitely delivers it! Thank you Tina for being so entertaining!
This book was funny, of course. It was kind of all over the place and sounded more like random rants but I loved it! Ms. Fey narrates so her true emotion of the words she's written come through as she meant them to. Have a listen and have a laugh :)
This book is amazing if you love anything humorous or having to do with Tina Fey, Saturday Night Live, or 30 Rock. I would prefer reading an actual book most of the time, but in this case, hearing Tina narrate her own book is amazing! You cannot miss it!
This book is hilarious, informative, and endlessly entertaining. It's a must-listen for anyone who appreciates brilliant ladies who look great with man hands.
