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.

    "Hilarious, intelligent and thoughtful."

    Very funny. Had me laughing out loud in public places. Some thoughtful passages on latent and overt sexism. Sad but true.

    "Just as clever as 30 Rock"

    Great writing. Laugh out loud moments and she does great at reading. Very entertaining. If you love Tina Fey this is a must.

    "Funny, smart, and insightful."

    This was a very funny yet honest look into the life of Tina Fey. Though honestly, I wasn't a huge fan of hers before reading this. But I must say I have gained respect for her and look forward to her future endeavors. I thin the fact that she narrated it was the icing on the cake. She would often do some improv or play clips from SNL etc, which was a nice treat. Good read!

    "Couldn't stop listening!"

    The book is funny, entertaining and relatable. Makes me remember how much I loved 30Rock. I thought that the book would go a little more in detail about leadership and being a women in a male dominated profession, it had its moments but they were brief. Perfectly narrated by Tina Fey.

    "Listening for fourth time"

    It's just funny! And there's a minimum word count to write this review. But really, the book is just funny.

    "Such a fun listen!"
    Any additional comments?

    This was one of the most fun audiobooks to listen to. I felt like I was chatting with Tina Fey herself. I've since encouraged all my friends to listen as well.

    "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!
