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!

    "Funny better for a woman"

    It was entertaining. A lot of it is better for a woman than a man. It also would help if you grew up in the same generation and with some diversity as she did. At the end of the day, if you can't laugh a little, it's your problem.

    "Delightful!"
    Where does Bossypants rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This was my first audiobook and I absolutely loved it. It has me laughing from top to bottom.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Bossypants?

    I loved that you could hear it from Tina Fey and totally picture her telling you these stories person. Also had a lot of good life advice.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Yes, and!

    Story
    "Entertaining"

    She gets quiet at the end of her sentences sometimes but it doesn't take away from the story or work. Really enjoyed this book, especially since the listeners get to hear SNL clips and classic Palin impersonation.

    "Amazing!"

    Tina Fey is so witty and this is very well-written. I definitely laughed out loud at many points. And although I'm not one to re-read or re-listen to books, I'm listening to this again and laughing even more/catching things I hadn't the first time.

    Story
    "love her"

    Annecdotes from Tina with her special views and humours. Comparing her stories with Amy's, she had more interesting and wise thoughts while Amy had more her own opinions.

    "Excellency with scat"

    This was an awesome book and completely engrossing, hilarious and enjoyable. The use of expletives could've been done away with or minimized for a more intelligent feel.

    Story
    "Boring!!! Hoped for the best but................."
    What disappointed you about Bossypants?

    The story for the most part isn't interesting and drags. Plus, I love Tina Fey (or thought I did) but really hearing all the profanity made this book tiresome. I haven't finished it and don't expect too - wish I could return it


    Has Bossypants turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Maybe I'll be more selective and hear previews. But, yes - I'm over it.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    All the cursing - so not necessary. Plus it was just so dry.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Bossypants?

    Most of them - I had hoped for some inspiration or a reason to keep listening but got an earful of useless information.


    Any additional comments?

    Told my friends not to waste their time. Sorry Ms. Fey - always liked you on TV and in movies - maybe your life trials aren't that significant or funny.
