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.

"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."
"Goddess of the geeks."
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.
