Once in a generation a woman comes along who changes everything. Tina Fey is not that woman, but she met that woman once and acted weird around her.
Before 30 Rock, Mean Girls, and '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 these 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.

Funny, awkward, entertaining
Shes as fun in voice as she is on screen if your a fan you will love it
Yes. I'm only selectively read biographies, and Tina Fey's book was a very entertaining story from start to finish. Her reading of the book was a big bonus for me, and really made her stories all the more memorable.
Tina Fey of course! :-)
funny, entertaining, easy
easy to listen to, i really bought it to try out audible, so i picked a short book but ended up really enjoying it and having a good laugh!
the non pc guide to bossiness
Obviously Tina Fey she is an amazingly funny women sometimes without even trying
Herself and Sarah Palin
Behind the laughs things are never as they seem
The fact that Tina Fey actually read this as well as writing it made the book soo much more, I feel that reading this in print would not have the same feeling. The best part about this book is that Tina doesnt stick to the usual style of an Autobiography of a celebrity where their life is laid out for you in chronological order stating then this happened then this happened. I love the fact that Tina jumps forward in time and then back again it keeps you interested. The other thing I like about this is she makes it so easy to listen too as I was listen I actually pictured her in my head sitting in front of a mic reading and making faces and gestures, it made you feel like she was telling you this story one on one.
All in all this was a great great great read and the only down side is that it wasnt long enough MORE TINA I WANT MORE. I will definitley recommend to all people I know that they need to get this as an audio book. I guarentee you will be pissing yourself laughing in the first 12 mins.

Short, sweet, and often laugh-out-loud
A lovely trip down Tina's wonderfully unique memory lane.
No I would not listen to the story again, not in the near future anyway. It was good the first time and that suits me just fine.
I'm new to audio listening and Bossypants has encouraged me to listen to more. A similar audio book would be Moranthology by Caitlin Moran which I'm slowly getting through.
Yes, it was read by Tina Fey and very, very entertaining.
Tina Fey doing her Sarah Palin interpretation.
Laugh out loud a lot.
It will be hard to find another audio book to top this!
The best so far - really kept my interest and was short so a good book to start out with.
Hearing about Tina Feys father was really entertaining - what a character!
She really breathed life into the book and used a variety of voices.
It made me laugh, a lot.
I would highly recommend this book to anyone who loves Tina Feys work.
Please be warned, this audiobook may be dangerous when listening in the car. I laughed so hard it brought me to tears and it could not have been safe to be laughing that way while driving home from work! I loved this book, and I really think that Tina Fey did a great job at performing it (as expected) and I am glad that I got to listen to it rather than simply reading it.
I can't portray how much i enjoyed listening to this audiobook, I came home every day and re watched 30 rock and annoyed my husband with little tidbits of information while watching. I am sure he is happy that I have finished it! But I think I will listen to it again.
Thanks Tina for sharing and writing and reading. Oh, and I did not even notice her scar... but maybe I just need a better TV. I don't know.
Get this audiobook. It's great.
Yes, there were plenty of KILLER lines and quips
I very much enjoyed Tina's description of her childhood and her father.
I could have...
Although it was very entertaining I felt I didn't really learn anything terribly deep about Tina, and I wanted to.
"Extremely funny and wholeheartedly recommended"
This audio book is brilliant, and I wholeheartedly recommend it. It is consistently funny and Tina Fey, as you might expect, does a great job of narrating.
I also really appreciated that bits were altered from the print edition to work in audio form, as well as the inclusion of one of her Saturday Night Live Sarah Palin skits and other nice touches. Or as another reviewer says rather more succinctly, it's an audiobook that knows it's an audiobook.
But Audible.co.uk: where's the PDF to which she refers several times? I can't see it available to download on your site (possibly because I'm being an idiot). I would really like to see a copy!
"Listened to it twice in 2 weeks!"
Loved it. Laugh out loud funny and great stories throughout. Great to hear some of the stories behind SNL and 30 Rock
I chose to get this book to have as background sound as I worked on my final hand in at university, I haven't stopped listening since I downloaded it and have spent most of that time crying with laughter, in particular as soon as the words 'childs old colonial lady costume'. I strongly recommend this, especially as an audio book as unlike other writers I think the words are so much funny coming from the person, especially from Tina Fey!
"Funny and clever"
An enjoyable foray into Tina Fey's life.. It was smiley funny rather than laugh out loud and is a great account of how a clever woman achieved success with the usual dollops of talent and luck. Don Fey is a great character and I enjoyed Tina's accounts of life with him and his effect on others enormously.
"Tina fey reads Tina fey, great."
Tina Fey made me laugh so much on the train platform at Clapham I got two seats to myself. If you like her humour this is a great buy, so much sweet generous wisdom wrapped up as self deprecating humour. Love her.
great listen during rush hour commute but expect to be laughing loudly in quiet places
This was absolutely hilarious. And genius of course. Premium anecdote gold. I am now 50% more wise and 63% more sure that Tina Fey is my spirit animal.
"Tina Fey is a God."
The title says it all.
It is read a little fast but, I guess that's how Ms(?) Fey talks. It just means I'll have to re-listen soon, which I am so so up for.
"Good but not blown away"
This book was very hyped to me so I had big expectations. However it didn't quite match them. alot of the jokes were American based so went over my head. However the performance was great I and if you want to read this book I definately recommend listening rather than reading it.
"Charming, funny and pretty inspiring."
Tina Fey is a G. She writes with such warm modesty and wit. She also delivers her own text with natural ease, which not all authors can do. As a young woman in the entertainment industry I found myself keeping bookmarks of passages that were damn good advice to someone in my position. A wise lady. More Tina Fey!
