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)
Tina Fey is destined to be my heroin. (Not the Opium of my audiobook listening addiction, but rather the Heroine, as in Hero, of my psychiatric practice). She makes ordinary seem astonishing. And Ms. Fey crafts astonishing amazing talent as ordinary.
She transcends generations – giving hope where there was none. Listening to this book is the most fun you can have with your adult child.
Bossypants is the funniest, and freakishly subtle, (non) self-help book ever narrated.
This book was definitely writen for woman and guy men. I used to like Tina Fey much more than I do now that I've listened to this book. I thought she was smart, funny and above all, open minded! However, "Bossy Pants" provides a window into a bitter, angry, selfish and slightly racist person (closet racist) who suddenly has enough power to get back at people who were mean to her in highschool. I get her humor, I really do. Its the main reason I bought the book to begin with but I was unaware of the caty, bitchy woman hidden behind the vale of smart comedy. In my eyes she went from exeptional (but modest) to common and over rated. I'm disappointed not in the quality of the book, witch really was funny for the most part, but in the the author. I wanted so much to like the book but instead, it made me take her off the comic pedistal...
The book is funny, but unlike others here I didn't laugh so hard that I drove through a construction zone. I don't mind rough language in recorded books, but in a book with such an emphasis on her family, I thought the potty-mouth was out of place.
I didn't find it funny at all. In fact I didn't make it to the middle of the book.
Really funny stuff. Many sections have inside female jokes, but they are tastefully conveyed by Fey so you won't get to embarressed
Fey's memories of the SNL years are priceless. She did a nice job recollecting Palin's interaction with her as well
She does a decent job of herself. Really.
It's a Date Night flick. Honest.
Tina Fey reads this book as though it lacks a single comma, period, or paragraph break and does so at full speed. Although this presentation might work well for the dialog of a character in a sit com, it drives you crazy as an audible book lover. I am surprised by the number of folks who had commented that she'd been a good choice as the narrator. And, at half way through the book, I have yet to experience one chuckle.
I thought Tina Fey was terrific and I enjoyed every minute of her story.
There is nothing better than having an author read their own book. Tina Fey does a terrific job of telling her own story. I enjoyed every minute of this book!
This book is a lot of fun. I laughed out loud through the entire book!
