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.

Hilarious! Must read!
I read this in less than 24 hours, stopping the first night only because i had to be up in 4 hours. Everything she writes is so...true. Tina Fey is one smart cookie. Recommend to any reader of David Sedaris or Chelsea Handler, although not quite as crude as Chelsea. 2 thumbs up.
Well worth straining my eyes trying to read it on an iPad in the sun.
You need this book!
Tina Fey's "Bossypants" is a literary gem. Loaded with fun tales from her both personal and work life, you are on a ride and you won't stop laughing, even after it's over! Definitely splurge the extra $1 for the extended version, which includes a hilarious introduction, read by Ms. Fey herself and pictures that are just priceless. For any SNL, 30 Rock, Tina Fey, comedy or just any human, really -- get this book -- you'll love it!
