Overview



This enhanced edition features excerpts from the audio edition of Bossypants, recently named Audio Book of the Year!

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 Enhanced eBook experience also includes special audio clips from Tina Fey, speculation on what an eBook really is, a bonus section of new-to-you photos, interpretive drawings, and a chapter read by the author!)

    A greek girl makes a name in comedy!

    I suppose I thought that Tina was always an actress on SNL I had no idea that she was witty and had the take on life that she says just what all people and dfitnley women are thinking. This was light hearted viw at hr life and opinons. Great read the best true story I have read in forever.

    A Real Hoot

    One of the funniest books I've read in a long time, funny in a nodding "you got that right" sort of way. And it is a LOL hoot. Tina Fey is not only a funny lady, she is very, very wise. The pictures included in this edition add to the narrative and I'm glad I bought this edition for my Nook. I'm a huge 30 Rock fan and I now appreciate Liz Lemon all the more. You go, Tina.

    OOdles of fun!

    BOSSY PANTS is one to read when you want to laugh from deep within. Tina Fey has a way with words that she can work in her witty humor, her world views, prejudice against women, and feminism in her self-deprecating way that ultimately inspires. She's a powerhouse of fun and inspiration and makes our every day lives feel exciting! There is no room for boredom! I highly recommend!

    This is probably the best and funniest book I ever had the pleas

    This is probably the best and funniest book I ever had the pleasure of reading and listening to. Tina Fey is simply hilarious - a star comedienne extraordinaire. 

    In her debut comedy novel, Tina Fey talks about her Flintstones-lacking childhood and how she worked her way to fame. From SNL, to 30 Rock, to Mean Girls, to Golden Globes, Tina Fey has captured the hearts and smiles and throats of readers, young and old alike, with her wit, passion, misdemeanor (oops, did I just wrote that?) and of course, her dedication to her craft.

    Her story will make you laugh out loud and even cry at the top of your lungs, and make you swoon for her even more. Get this book, and you will not be disappointed at all!

    I loved Bossypants by Tina Fey! What a spectacular book! Tina Fe

    I loved Bossypants by Tina Fey! What a spectacular book! Tina Fey speaks of her life experiences and teaches lessons along the way. I was able to relate to this book because I am a teen girl growing up, and it’s a rough experience! She speaks of the specific body type that is loved, and sometimes I felt like she was reading my mind. It’s good to know I’m not the only insecure girl out there. Another part of the book that I loved was the chapter which was “The Mother’s Prayer for its Daughter”. This chapter made me feel all warm and fuzzy inside because I knew that my mom feels the same way for me.  It spoke of what mothers truly want for their daughters…HAPPINESS.
    Tina Fey’s style of writing was perfect for me! I usually don’t enjoy reading, but I was never able to put the book down. She is not only hilarious, but also a brilliant human being. Bossyypants is an easy read to be able to kick back and relax while learning about life! What can be better than knowledge and comedy in one package?  I often found myself laughing out loud while reading. What a stupendous find for anyone to read. I give Bossypants five stars because I sincerely loved it and would love to read more types of books like this.

    Tina Fey is awesome! I LOVED this book. I, in fact, will probabl

    Tina Fey is awesome! I LOVED this book. I, in fact, will probably buy the audio book just so I can listen to her read what I have already laughed aloud at by reading. Tina has found a way to make us laugh at some of the funny things that happen in her life but make it seem like it is our life as well. I got a kick out of every page and was sad when it was over (already?!).

    READ IT! You won't be disappointed (well... unless you are not into humor, then don't read it).

    LOL

    I was laughing so much it was distracting my husband from his book. I especially loved the mothers' prayer. I couldn't agree more!

    Pretty darn funny!

    I knew I wanted to read this book when I read the "What others are saying" section on the back of the jacket. This book was laugh out loud funny most of the time. I even had to stop and read aloud to those around me at times! I stopped watching 30 Rock a few seasons ago because it just got too ridiculous, but I think even the average passing Tina Fey fan will enjoy. I just wonder what is in the enhanced Nookbook. Am I missing out?

    New idol!

    Ibought and read this whole book in under a week. Tina Fey is so funny as well as a little dorky and awkward. I am not usually one to show emotions over books but I found myself laughing throughout this whole book! I loved every page,picture,and story!

    Like having a long, one-sided talk with an old friend

    Tina Fey is freakin' hilarious. Her writing is absolutely, purely funny. Its so nice of her to pretend to be this awkward comedy geek so that the rest of us don't feel to bad about ourselves after reading about this gorgeous, amazingly sucessful woman. I mean, c'mon. Hollywood doesn't dole out its precious fame juice to average looking looking people, no matter how funny they are. But Tina Fey spins a fantastical tale of a dorky childhood, nerdy college days, and less than graceful adulthood, and we're supposed to just believe that that hot mess somehow stumbled her way to fame and fortune. Ms. Fey, you dont have to be so modest. You're da bomb. You really had me going though. I had so much fun reading it I almost believed it...almost.
