Audible Editor Reviews

Why we think it's Essential - Witty, finely-crafted, and meant to be heard, Bossypants is one of my favorite audiobooks of all time. Tina Fey knows how to deliver a good punch-line – and does so hilariously throughout her memoir. Her self-deprecating humor shines through, and this half-memoir, half-stand-up routine left me laughing for all in the subway car to hear. From her days in the Second City comedy troupe, to Saturday Night Live, to Hollywood, Fey's stories and memories will leave you in stitches. —Jess

Publisher's Summary

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!

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

    "Disapointed"

    I'm sure if you have the right mindset, and expectation of this book it could be a great thing to hear, but I just wasn't feeling it.

    Story
    "From a working 40 yr old woman to another..."

    For those of us who live at the "half-way" place, Bossypants is a fun peek into a world we only get to observe digitally. Tina is insightful and vulnerable without being gratuitous or a victim. I finished the book thinking that (if I had kids) this is a book I would use to both contradict (the 24/7 hype we are fed about how being famous or on tv/movies is almost "otherworldly") and inspire (no matter what choice you make, success at anything requires passion and hard work). Anyway, if the above was not really part of the point... umm, no worries, there seems to always be sequels in your line of work!! From one 40 yr old working woman to another great job!

    "Embarrassing Myself on the Way to Class"

    I laughed, I cried, that guy in my philosophy class asked me if I was ok. I love Tina Fey.

    "Good Book, several funny moments!"

    Good book, slow to start but picked up half way in. Found myself laughing out loud several times toward the end.

    "Cracks Me Up"

    Tina...You're delivery and the descriptive way you tell the stories cracks me up. As I visually see the people and the situation I constantly laugh and laugh again before I can catch my breathe. Know body could possibly narrate your book besides you.

    Since activities of daily living get in the way of reading - being able to listen to books is the next best thing. Sometimes better.

    "BRAVO"

    I didn't want this audio book to end. Tina is the only person who could've pulled this off so well.

    "Funny and Insightful"

    I downloaded the book to listen on a long road trip. I loved the witty anecdotes and the insightful look at the comediennes journey from improv troupe member to head writer at SNL. Tina Fey bares her personal life in an unpretentious and matter of fact manner that is one part comical everyday experiences and one part exploration of the human condition through an intimate, and highly personal journey.
