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)
Hearing Tina Fey read her own book was very enjoyable. She's a very funny woman and her book is hysterical and when you combine the two you end up with a wonderful audiobook.
Tina Fey was my favorite.
Yes! But I didn't. I often listen to audiobooks while running errands or doing laundry or cleaning closets, so I listened to it in several sessions.
A must listen!
This is a great book. Full stop. I like Tina Fey's honesty about herself and her appreciation of the people with whom she works.I listen to audio books while driving and only listen to lively/amusing books. "Bossypants" is perfect for my driving needs. This book is very well-written and structured to keep the reader engaged.Tina Fey is smart, funny, kind, and a very good modern Mom; or so she says.
My favorite part about this book was the section on Tina's father, Don Fey. I loved how she always spoke of him in the third person: When Don Fey put on a hat, that hat stayed on Don Fey's head until Don Fey took it off. Hats knew their place around Don Fey. (Not in the book --- I made it up)
I laughed and laughed ...
I'll listen again.
yes. because I like to laugh
It was authentic and funny.
Made my 7 hour drive fly by. Worth every penny.
She is the perfect narrator! Her story is hilarious - I laughed out loud at times and have gone back and listened more than once. A keeper for sure and a book everyone should own.
I know this book is highly rated, but after about 30 minutes I just put it down. I was waiting for a point, or some direction.
I guess it just isn't too my taste but I did not finish it.
Don Fey because you can tell how much Tina really loves him.
Prayer for my daughter- it had me laughing so hard.
It's in the upper 10%. I need to listen to more comedies like this.
Tina Fey. Duh! *laugh*
The part about Sylvester Stallone.
It made me *laugh*!
I can listen to this over and over and something will make me laugh that didn't the previous times.
