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!

What I loved best about Bossypants was that Tina Fey, herself, narrated the book. It was like commuting to work with Tina in the car with me.
I enjoyed the hilarious, candid way Tina shared her life with her audience. She reminded me of myself and my friends during our awkward stages of growing up and in later years. We joked about some of the exact things Tina Fey does!
Tina Fey as herself, of course!
Oh my gosh, it made me laugh out loud, every DAY. I would save it for the commute into work as it made the time FLY by. I imagine I was the only commuter on that packed highway laughing and smiling on her way to work.
Tina Fey, please WRITE MORE BOOKS!!!!
I really enjoyed this audiobook. It would have been hilarious no matter what format I absorbed it, but the fact that Tina Fey was the actual audiobook narrator made it even better. My fiance and I listened to it on our drive to my family's Christmas celebration and laughed out loud. A lot. Tina Fey is freakin' hilarious. Oh and then I bought it for my sister for Christmas only to learn she had already read it, and loved it, so I gave it to one of my cousins, who already had a copy of the actual book but wanted it anyway for an upcoming road trip.
Yes, I plan to because I want to remember more of the stories and great lines.
Some of the subjects I would never think to talk about but she made it hilarious.
This book is therapy. After working in a male dominated business, this book made me feel less crazy... of course, I probably looked nuts while I listened to it because I was laughing out loud in public. Hmmm.
Tina's portrayal of her father, Don Fey, is priceless. I learned that dudes like this book too, when all my co-workers decided that want to be Don Fey.
I listened to this book in one sitting and then again in savory little sound bites.
Buy this book. It will make you happy.
Yeah, I love memoirs and especially from comedians.
Obviously Tina herself.
Her comedic timing is not something she is known for but her deadpan delivery and sarcasm while reading is reminiscent of her Weekend Update bits on SNL. The delivery is dry in good way.
Extreme? No... but I did have a good chuckle for most of the book.
Woman and gay men will relate to this book much more than straight men, there are just some jokes and stories that are very obviously centered around a woman's outlook, perspective, and experience and since much of the people in her life have been gay men that perspective is represented well too. This is not meant to be sexist or homophobic, it's just the truth. However, as a 30 year old, straight man who watched SNL regularly I can say that our demographic will also get a kick out of a lot of her stories. I enjoyed the book even though many of my personal life experience were not at all similar to Tina's.
Absolutely. Her writing style, while predictable to her fans, is quite funny and light.
no I have not
I did it in one sitting. While I cleaned the house it was an all day listen. Loved it!!
Tina put a lot of effort into this book. It's a pseudo-autobiography - full of stories from her adolescence, college, first job, snl and 30 rock. With endless jokes all the time :).
What I liked the most though is her life philosophy and a very down to earth approach to things. After hearing the book I'm confident I would like her a lot in real life.
I needed a good laugh, and Tina Fey provided just that. This may sound strange, but I downgraded the rating because she was overly humble. Will I listen to this recording again? You betch' ya.
