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!)
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
It’s hard not to hear Liz Lemon when you listen to Bossypants, although Tina Fey is smarter and more self-aware than her most famous character. Hearing Fey narrate her memoir of deeply personal stories about her experiences as a woman, comedian, and parent makes clear why she’s one of the most fearless voices in comedy. Thanks to her conversational flair and zippy timing, anecdotes like a random knife attack that left her with a permanent facial scar become unforgettable. We’re dying for a sequel.

Bossypants by Tina Fey
I'm an artist and I listen to A LOT of audiobooks while I paint for long hours. This is absolutely one of the best and most enjoyable I've listened to in a very, very long time. Not only is the writing truly witty and laugh-out-loud funny but her delivery is killer. I can't recommend this fabulous audiobook high enough!!
Maybe the best ever...just sayin
Tina Fey is a genius. My only criticism of this book is that it just wasn't long enough. I could seriously listen to Fey talk about cereal or car repair or photosynthesis for hours. Her book is witty, heart warming, and hilarious - it is also probably way better to enjoy the audio version because with Fey reading it, you really get the delivery and mood of her writing to come across.
I literally had to stop jogging because I was laughing so hard. Great listen.
