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!

Critic Reviews

"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)

Love Tina Fey.

If you enjoy honesty about show business and personal life this book is for you. Tina Fey does a great job on telling her story about her life and her perspective on life.

This is a great listen and how she reads her memoirs is amazing. If you like first-person perspective and want to know about how difficult being a funny woman can be... I recommend this book! It is feminist, funny, and personable.

I love Tina Fey.

Would you consider the audio edition of Bossypants to be better than the print version?

I cannot imagine reading this book without Tina Fey's inflection.

What did you like best about this story?

I loved how there were funny parts... seriously hilarious parts...but also a lot of real, meaningful moments. The part of the book talking about her playing Sarah Palin is really cool. You really see everything that went into playing that part

What about Tina Fey’s performance did you like?

Saying things under her breath.... so funny.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I pretty much did... I got the book before I left for a business trip and listened to it for my flight portions and even some in my room while i was getting ready!

Any additional comments?

I really enjoyed the book and would recommend it to any Tina Fey fans, 30 rock fans and people who love to hear about the difficulty and success of female careers.

Enjoyable book

Tina Fey has such an amusing picture of life and it comes out in this book. I enjoyed the tales and story telling by Tina herself.
