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!

"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)

Did not enjoy the whinny quality of this book.

Really struggling to finish this book. I found it boring. Only a small fraction of the stories we're truly funny. I think Tina should stick to TV and leave the writing of books to others.

Not for me

I love Tina Fey but could not finish the book. Some stories dragged on and on. The novelty of her narration wore off quite quickly. Wish I could have returned the book before the expiry date.

Disappointment

What disappointed you about Bossypants?

If you are not from the USA don't buy this book. Half of the things she was talking about I could not understand.

I bought this book based on the positive reviews it has but it is so bad that I could not finish it.

She talks about her life which is not really that interesting, it's very boring actually, but she tries to make it funny. I did laugh at any point.

She also talks very fast, it's like she is in a hurry to finish the book.

The book is a big disappointment.

Not very interesting

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

I returned the book because I just could attach emotionally to her story

What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

The performance was fine, the material was not

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

No

Not my type of humor

I'm sure some people call this funny and entertaining but I could not finish listening to this fast paced, juvenile humor with lots of emphasis on sex . I enjoyed the author in many of her roles but this isn't one of them. I struggled to listen to this as long as I could. I was being generous by giving this two stars.

Just didn't get all the humor.

I did not realize that this book was written much more for a female audience.

Was this supposed to be comedy?

Maybe, being a guy, I missed something here, but this was just not funny at all. Sorry Tina, I really liked you in your shows, but this just didn't do it for me.

Disappointed

What would have made Bossypants better?

I was expecting to laugh out loud and enjoy all of Tina's quick wit. I was disappointed. I couldn't even bring myself to finishing this audiobook.
