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 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.

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.
