Summary
Spirited and whip-smart, these laugh-out-loud autobiographical essays are 'a masterpiece' from the Emmy Award-winning actress and comedy writer known for 30 Rock, Mean Girls, and SNL' (Sunday Telegraph).

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 always 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!

This was a very funny and interesting book. There are a lot of references to the PDF pictures in the book. There should be a link to those pictures.

A highly enjoyable listen. Ready by anyone other then Tina it would not have been so good. My advice, don't listen to this in a place where you would be embarrassed to laugh out loud.

I LOVED this book! A friend recommended and Tina Fey, as always, doesn't disappoint! I found that if I wasn't listening to her narrate the book and was, instead, reading it, I wouldn't have been able to do it justice as she did. She emphasized where she meant to and whispered where she meant to and it all added up to a fun, enjoyable listening experience. Highly recommend and especially in audiobook format!

This is a seriously good listen! Tina Fey tells her story with perfect comedic timing, and even if you've read this book before, it is WAAAAYYYY better in audio form. You won't be disappointed with this book!

Very good. Listened to it while alternating with another, heavier book about serial killers. It was just what I needed to make me laugh out loud and pull me out of the dark place the other book had put me into. Also had some surprising nuggets of good advice and real wisdom artfully woven into this highly memorable, and very relatable piece. Tina Fey reading it made it even better. Highly recommend!

The book is wonderfully entertaining. It is one of those delicious books that is genuinely better read aloud. I would sincerely recommend this book, especially as an audiobook.

Hate her politics, love her writing. Additionally wonderful because she narrates her own words, the best form for an audiobook to take.

A little late - but we got to know Tina and what drives her captivating humor. Make sure you have a double-shot espresso ready to keep pace with her narration. I think she may have been fueled by the same when writing and reading. She drops a nice volume of cryptic references that may not be caught if you're distracted while listening.

LOVED THIS BOOK! I love Tina Fey and her witty sarcasm! So glad she read it herself, it wouldn't have been the same if it were someone else. I am sure I looked like a crazy person laughing in my car commuting to work but soooo worth it!

Funny but kind of short. Wish I'd noticed that before hand. But I Iove Tina Fey! She's Hilarious! I agree it would not have been as good of a read as it was a listen narrated by Tina.

The audio quality was great, very easy to stop and start as needed, and I like that it automatically paused and kept going whenever the GPS woud interrupt to say something. Also, Tina Fey is hilarious.

For this being my first time ever really listening to an audio book I sure picked a great one. Bossypants is funny, honest, and an all around great book. It has Tina Fey's quirky sense of humor which I love and I enjoyed listening to it. I would definitely recommend this book!

She was funny. But actually kind of irritating. It was kind of a brag story about all the cool things she has accomplished and also a women's manifesto about working and being moms and being successful and being a comedienne. She did make me laugh. And it was kind of a story of a lady with first world problems.

I'm already a fan of Tina Fey and think she is talented. This autobiographical audio book is quite funny and I love hearing Tina as the narrator. After being fully invested in the 5.5 hours of her abridged tales of childhood, personal and family life, and experience with improv, writing, and acting I admire her for honesty and without a doubt I respect her work so much more.

Amazing! Love the TIna Fey narration! I believe that if I would have simply red the book myself it would not have gotten the full effect! I would highly recommend this book to anyone looking for a good laugh!

This was an absolutely wonderful book. Part of what made it so awesome was that it is an autobiography by Tine Fey, herself. Having one of the most wonderful comedians read her life to us is a once in a lifetime gift to come across. You see a side of a woman that you never knew existed. You find you oddly have things in common, and find a way to smile about the most twisted topics in life! 5 stars all the way around!!!

YES. Everything about this book is perfect. Tina Fey is obviously the best person to narrate a book about herself. Bossypants had me laughing out loud almost the entire time. When I wasn't laughing, I was relating to her

I really enjoyed this book. I'm a sucker for a celebrity biography. I recently purchased this title and couldn't take my earbuds out. Highly recommended to anyone who also enjoys celebrity biographies. Also, I really enjoyed having Tina Fey narrate it.

Cute and funny, just like Tina Fey. I enjoyed this biography. It was revealing and informative; more than just about Ms. Fey. I kept talking about it to my daughter because I think she and Ms. Fey could be related somehow; They are that much alike. It inspired my to binge on 30 Rock, which I had not seen, so I watched all the episodes. Great show! And who does not like the genius of "Mean Girls"? C'mon!

This is a funny, well-written book on its own, and the audiobook format makes it even better. Not only is the book read by Tina Fey herself (ensuring that all the jokes have the right timing and inflection), but the publisher/Tina Fey makes full use of the format by adding-in sound bytes from SNL. Highly recommended!

Fast, fun listen. Fey is an excellent narrator--and her story manages to be mundane and interesting at the same time: that's hard to pull off! I highly recommend.

I just don't find Tina Fey funny I guess, I didn't laugh once on the first 2 CD's and found her life to be very uninteresting.

I had wanted to read this book for some time. When I signed up for Simply Audio is was the first book to go in my bookshelf. Tina Fey is a nut and she tells it how she sees it. If you are looking for a great reason to laugh out loud while stopped at a red light, this book is for you. You will not be dissapointed.

It was okay but I lost interest after a while. Narration was alright but I just didn't think it was hilarious. I guess just not my kind of humor.
