Once in a generation a woman comes along who changes everything. Tina Fey is not that woman, but she met that woman once and acted weird around her.
Before 30 Rock, Mean Girls, and '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.

I loved this audiobook. Hearing Tina Fey read her words aloud is a real pleasure. The audiobook is enhanced by sound effects and accents that you wouldn't be able to experience from reading the hard copy of the book. It even contains the Sarah Palin and Hillary Clinton sketch (featuring Fey and Amy Poehler) from SNL, which is hilariously funny. 'Bossypants' is entertaining from beginning to end and made me laugh so much that I cried. I would highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys Fey's work and sense of humour.
"Why Tina Fey lost a star"
Firstly the books brilliant, read brilliantly by the author and dispite the giant man hands, she looks very nice on the cover.
However, all the hard work is slightly let down by audible.this is simply because every time she says "check the acompanying pdf" im left with a growing anoyance that i didnt get one with the download.
Come on audible your supossed to be better than this, maybe a bit of organisation and it would have been the TEN out of five stars audiobook that you and maths have prevented it from being!!
"I loved it!"
This book is hilarious and I'd recommend it highly, the text is enhanced enormously by being read by Tina Fey herself (although I did laugh out loud a few times whilst walking along the road with my MP3 earphones on, which made me look a little insane, but never mind!).
Have a listen and I doubt you'll be disappointed.
"Do you know Tina Fey?"
I certainly didn't before listening to this, aside from the classic Palin sketches. But having recently finished, I'm certainly going to go listen/watch her work. A brilliantly narrated story that had me laughing out loud on many occasions whilst cycling to work and in Sainsburys.
I love the fact she's not just reading from her printed book but has taken the time and thought to make this a unique performance, with brilliant comic timing and acting out of stories, interspersed with clips from her work and references to pictures of her outfits.
Really hope we get more from Tina Fey on Audible soon!
Really enjoyed this audio book. It was very fun to lisen to, as Tina fey narrated it. I enjoyed the Autio version more than reading it myself because of Tina Fey's narration.
"Finally, an audiobook that knows it's an audiobook"
Yes it's funny, very, very funny but if you're a 30 Rock or SNL fan then this is no less than you would expect from Tina Fey. But one of the most amazing things about the audio version is that Tina Fey knows that she is reading an audiobook and uses this to comic effect. I can't think of another book that does this and by acknowledging the medium it really elevates the title to another level. Also, did I mention it's funny, very, very funny.
"An enjoyable read for Tiny Fey fans"
I found this to be an interesting read, particularly when Tina describes her move into the male-dominated world of comedy. Her writing throughout is strong and witty, just as her TV sketches would lead you to expect.
I loved it! her childhood has got to be the funniest i've ever read. The audiobook gives it an even funnier edge.
I'm gonna go seetinassnl and 30 rock
"Extremely funny and wholeheartedly recommended"
This audio book is brilliant, and I wholeheartedly recommend it. It is consistently funny and Tina Fey, as you might expect, does a great job of narrating.
I also really appreciated that bits were altered from the print edition to work in audio form, as well as the inclusion of one of her Saturday Night Live Sarah Palin skits and other nice touches. Or as another reviewer says rather more succinctly, it's an audiobook that knows it's an audiobook.
But Audible.co.uk: where's the PDF to which she refers several times? I can't see it available to download on your site (possibly because I'm being an idiot). I would really like to see a copy!
Fantastic book, having it read by Tina really adds to the humour and gives us extra little snippets which would be lost in the paper copy. Well written, heart warming and honest. Fully recommended to anybody, not just fans of Tina Fey.
