Synopsis

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 these 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!)

Best. Read. Ever. Tina Fey is a brilliant comedienne. I read excerpts from time to time just to cheer myself up or have a chuckle.

Tina Fey is hilarious

There were definitely parts that made me laugh out loud. In fact I can't think of the word "cavernous" without laughing anymore.

Hilarious, and endlessly quotable.

I love Bossypants. It is equal parts smart, touching, hilarious, and insightful. What's better, not only is Fey's talent as a comic writer highlighted in Bossypants, but her ability as an engaging storyteller really shines through as she describes her journey from Philly to Chicago to NYC. Time flies by while reading this book. Worthy of multiple reads, and multiple listens of the audiobook. You won't regret it.

What can you really say about an autobiography? It’s funny. It’s the story of Tina Fey and her interesting chronicle of becoming one of the funniest women writers in the business. It’s not a hard sell. If you love Tina Fey. Even if you only like Tina Fey, you will definitely enjoy this book.

Tina Fey writes what we all think as women. We just forget to laugh at ourselves when WE think it. Funny, witty and highly entertaining!

As funny as always
July 31st, 2014
Tina Fey is wonderfully, uproariously and irreverently funny in everything she does and this book is no different. She's the sort of writer I'd love to be. I found myself reading most of this book in her voice, with her timing and inflections, often erupting in fits of laughter that had my husband giving me strange looks from over his laptop.

I love tina fey and therefore I knew I would be biased when reading this book. It is a good read, she keeps things light and funny but still touches on some interesting topics. It was certainly interesting to have her pov on her career and success.

Tina Fey writes about her life and work in a funny way. It's not just that some of the situations she describes are funny...she writes funny. This book was fun to read.
