Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

She's a comic genius, every woman's imaginary best friend, and the thinking man's sex symbol. Tina Fey didn't get this far without pulling on her bossypants.

Before there was Liz Lemon, before there was "Sarah Palin," before there was Weekend Update — there was a woman with a dream. A dream that one day she would write a book about how she got here. But she had to get there first.

On her way to becoming an award-winning superstar, Tina Fey struggled through some questionable haircuts, some after-school jobs, the rise of nachos as a cultural phenomenon, a normal childhood, a happy marriage and joyful motherhood. Her story must be told! Fey's pursuit of the perfect beauty routine may actually give you laugh lines, and her depiction of her whirlwind tour of duty as the Other Sarah Palin on Saturday Night Live takes you behind the scenes of a comedy event that transfixed the nation. Now, Fey can reflect on what she's learned: 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.)

Review:

"Fey's caustic wit and wry delivery made it clear she wasn't another airhead comedienne willing to play dumb for laughs. If the world needed reminding that smart girls can be funny and sexy, Tina Fey proved it." Playboy

Review:

"Goddess of the geeks." Time

Synopsis:

From her lifetime pursuit of the perfect Beauty Routine to the oversold joys of breastfeeding, from her whirlwind tour of duty as the Other Sarah Palin on Saturday Night Live to her early days in the comedy trenches — Tina Fey puts her unique and endlessly funny mark on modern life, work, marriage, and motherhood.

About the Author

Lighthearted, funny, and totally relatable, Tina Fey delivered in this book. It was as if she was in my living room telling me stories about her childhood, coming of age, and then working like crazy as an adult...all while I was wiping tears of laughter out of my eyes. The first few chapters are definitely the best, and had me giggling non-stop. It's a great read if you're feeling like you need a laugh.

How can you not like Tina Fey? She is spot on with her observations about life and people without being mean. The fact that she is hilarious and incredibly talented but still seems like a regular gal is a bonus. Bossypants combines insight into how she got where she is with funny stories about her personal life. I have saved this book to read while on vacation which has been the perfect choice for me. For anyone who enjoys comedy especially Saturday Night Live and 30 Rock I highly recommend this book.
