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!)

This is the very definition of summer reading. It's funny, a blast to read and gives some fun insight into the person we've been seeing on TV for years. Anyone familiar with Tina Fey's work on Saturday Night Live or 30 Rock will actually hear her voice as you're reading this. It feels more like a fun conversation than an autobiography. Anyone who isn't familiar with Fey will still have a great time reading Bossypants. I laughed out loud in several places. This is a great, quick read and definitely worth checking out. I don't know where she finds the time to write a book between producing and starring in a hit TV show, but I hope she writes another one soon.

After reading Bossypants I feel as though Tina Fey is my friend.  This is the perfect quick, fun read for anyone interested in something light.  Be prepared to laugh!  I found myself smiling and giggling to myself at times.

Tina was open and honest, and she really gave an insight into how hard people in tv work.  I loved it and have recommended it to everyone!

I adore the Tina Fey I have come to know through media interviews and the woman behind Saturday Night Live Weekend Update and 30 Rock. Bossypants reads like a jaunt through that woman's brain. Funny, self-deprecating, and straightforward - just what you would expect from what you have seen of Fey on TV. Fey liberally sprinkles big sister advice throughout. Don't feel bad about how you look, that you are a working mom, or that you did not breastfeed, along with tips on how to be a good boss and how to put things in perspective. This starts to get irritating after a while and after the 10th "how to" list, I realized this pseudo self-help is possibly just meant to take up the space that she apparently chose not to fill with more biographical details. There are no major revelations here. No real intimate details about her life. Not even any major name dropping. Other than an ode to the awesomeness of her father and some reflections on motherhood, she writes very little about her family. We don't even learn about how she met her husband. These omissions give the book a shallow feel, but if you don't go into it actually expecting to learn more about Fey you will probably still find it a fun read.

Mildly Unleashable

Boosypants is the PERFECT SUMMER READ for a book club! It is light, yet fun, and is packed with all kinds of interesting things to talk about at your book club gathering. Just what I wanted for this busy time of year…  In many instances I was laughing out loud. But, of course, it IS Tina! Tina is so approachable and real I wish we were both still living in Roger's Park so I could call her up and go grab a drink at Morseland with her… yeah, that's right, I used to live in the same area of Chicago as her… although not at the same time. ;) But that was a fun element that made the book even more fun for me. Anyway, I liked Tina before, but now I think I have a little girl crush on her. She is truly inspiring and I love, love, love her style. I found the book very inspiring and actually full of good advice. Loads to discuss. And, Tina, call me! ;)

The only thing I did NOT like was the cover - is it just me or is that way to freaky to look at. That gave me the creeps.

If you like Tina Fey and you enjoyed things by Jen Lancaster and Chelsea Handler you probably will enjoy. Took a while for me to get to where I was giggling but I did find sme parts quite laughable!
