Fey holding a copy of Bossypants on her book tour at a Barnes & Noble in New York City April 8, 2011.

Flash renamer download. In 2008, the prospect of a Tina Fey book was reportedly the subject of a bidding war among publishers, which led to an advance of $6 million.[7] As part of her deal with Little, Brown & Co., a gift was made to the New York-based Books for Kids Foundation.[8]


Bossypants received greatly positive reviews, Janet Maslin for The New York Times calls Bossypants 'a spiky blend of humor, introspection, critical thinking and Nora Ephron-isms for a new generation.'[1] Katie Roiphe for Slate is favorable toward the humor in Bossypants, especially how Fey wields jokes as a personal display of power.[9] The book was also praised by Mary McNamara of the Los Angeles Times, who wrote, '..any concern that Fey, like so many before her, has been ruined by fame is quickly dispelled by Bossypants, a book that reminds you why Fey has succeeded where so many have failed — because she is precise, professional and hilarious.'[10] Ellen Wernecke of The A.V. Club similarly said of Fey, 'The artistry of her autobiography-turned-polemic raises the bar for every comedian who dares put cursor to Word doc.'[11]

It received a more mixed review from Carole Cadwalladr of The Observer, however, who opined, 'There's lots to enjoy, particularly if you are, as I am, a Tina Fey fan girl. It's just the bookiness of it. Fey is out of her genre, and it shows: it takes an age to get going, and it's less like prose non-fiction than a sketch comedy in book form, with a disproportionate number of one-liners, not all of which work.'[12]

Preview — Bossypants by Tina Fey

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 of those dreams come true.
At last, Tina Fey's story can be told. From her

Tina Fey's Bossypants was a disappointment. I don't know that expecting much from a comedy writer's cash-in big-font-with-pictures essay/ fair, but I've been a Tina Fey fan since 30 Rock began, ready to trust her literary aspirations, and even to me this book barely scratches onto the two star plateau.
What did I expect? Well, it's probably easier to explain what I didn't expect. I wasn't counting on a sour, muddled, defensive screed against anyone who pissed off the author in

The best audiobook I've listened to in a long, long time. And that's saying something.
I ended up picking this up because when I sent up a signal flare on Twitter, it was the most recommended book by far.
Now I see why.
1. The narration was exceptionally good. (I like autobiography being read by the author, but not all authors are good narrators.)
2. It's legitimately funny.
3. It's legitimately thoughtful and insightful.
I'll also say that I read this book cold. I didn't really know who Tina Fe

I honestly cannot remember the last time I laughed this hard reading anything (only a Jonathan Tropper novel or a Dave Sedaris collection comes close). I finished the other night with wet cheeks from the tears that'd escaped my eyes. The bed had been shaking I was laughing so hard!
So what's to love about 'Bossypants,' besides everything? For starters, how Tina just tells it (and by 'it,' I mean everything from working at SNL to impersonating Sarah Palin) like it is. She's got a fierce feminist

Tina Fey. American Icon.
Some people say, “Never let them see you cry.” I say, if you’re so mad you could just cry, then cry. It terrifies everyone.
I really appreciated how this memoir had a good mix of heartwarming anecdotes, comedic happenstances and career musings.
While I am not as familiar with her SNL and early career, this book was fun and easy to listen to.
As with many a memoir, we start with her childhood love of comedy and processed to her current-day adventures (or perhaps more ac

Sure, you could read Bossypants. Provided you like all that self-deprecating 'I'm Tina Fey and I am enormously successful and I am thankful for that, but at the same time I still struggle with being a working woman with a real life, because it is so weird that I am a media icon when I still really think of myself as an unpopular high school theater dweeb, and isn't life weird, like when I was seen as a major influence during the last election because I kind of look like Sarah Palin?' stuff.

Recommends it for: Anyone who finds Dave Barry 'too edgy'
Recommended to Kristen by: Someone else's idea of a 'beach read'
First, I must preface this two star rating by saying that since Goodreads does not allow zero stars I'm forced to reserve my one star ratings only for very special pieces of shit. Secondly, at no time while reading this did my blood alcohol content drop below twice the legal limit and even that hardly made this book tolerable.
I wasn't expecting much, obviously, but this 'book' fails to live up to even the exceeding low standards of airport bookstores. I liked Tina Fey before I read this book.

Meager..! The degree of insight here is microscopic at most. Anecdotes--those that matter to us, TV/film buffs of the world--are soooo ridiculously scant! Its akin to ridiculing a very unique life with a distanced neverwarm life story. It's unfair; all of it farcical with no pathos at all. The chuckles themselves fail to achieve the expected Cheshire Cat grin madness usually achieved by the brilliant 'Weekend Update' host. This was unexpectedly underwhelming to me.

Three and a half stars. I think Tina Fey is awesome. I think this is a slight but solid book. Her authorial voice sounds exactly like her speaking in my head. It's sometimes funny, sometimes self-deprecating, sometimes empowering. It spends more time than one might expect on some things, and no time on others. I think she tried to skirt a line between memoir and humor essayist that is a difficult one to skirt. I think it's an easier thing to do if you're David Sedaris and nobody has specific sto..more

Big Tina Fey fan here. I have always enjoyed her work on SNL and have seen almost every episode of 30 Rock. I have seen some of her movies, not all. She is very definitely funny and smart. Her Sarah Palin kills. So what might one expect from a Tina Fey book? One of two things, either a straight ahead comedic book with plenty of anecdotes, jokes and maybe a bit of behind-the-scenes info, or a personal memoir, with detail about her background. I felt that Fey committed to neither fully and wound u..more

Who said women aren't funny? A lot of people, apparently, most of them men. One of these was Christopher Hitchens, the controversial journalist who published an essay in Vanity Fair titled, quite plainly, Why Women Aren't Funny. To this and to the dozen other polemics written about the perceived humor gap between men and women, Tina Fey, in her new book called Bossypants, says, 'We don't fucking care if you like it.' She adds,

There’s a chapter in this book where Tina Fey is describing the hectic week that culminated with her filming scenes of 30 Rock with Oprah Winfrey, then rushing to get to the Saturday Night Live studio for her debut performance as Sarah Palin all while she was still making last minute arrangements for her daughter’s birthday party. In between takes, Tina was watching You Tube clips of Palin to work on the voice while holding her daughter and Oprah was asking with genuine concern if she’d have tim..more

I know it's a total cliché to read a book and say you want to be friends with the author, but I want to be friends with Tina Fey (and I really think it could happen!) The tale of a suburban girl finding her voice and making her way in the still entirely too male world of comedy felt so specific and true..and her stories about her husband and her daughters are total #relationshipgoals.

I listened to this on audiobook, and I'm so glad I did! I can't imagine how much less fun this would have been without Tina's actual voice. (I'm not saying the book was boring, Tina is just perfect and makes everything better always.)

I've said it before and I'll say it again: Bryan Cranston and Shonda Rhimes have the best celebrity memoirs out there. They're the exception.
'Bossypants'- not my cup of tea. Oh, and parts of it were flat out racist.
I'm beginning to think two stars is a tad generous.
Maybe celebrity memoirs just aren't for me. I don't find them appealing, entertaining or really funny (as some claim to be).
Up next: Aziz Ansari's 'Modern Romance.'
(What?! I didn't say I was gonna stop reading celebrity books)

So yeah, I was a Tina Fey virgin. Her name meant nothing to me until this book came out. [Insert gasp of incredulity.] People say, 'You know, Saturday Night Live?' To which I say, 'You know, no telly in my domicile?'
No, I don't really live under a rock. I just tune out nonessential information.
Anyway, I like Tina because she's funny in the way I would be funny if I were actually capable of being funny on a regular basis.

Hilarious autobio that touches upon the highs and lows of Tina Fey's life and career.
If you're a fan of her humor, as seen on 30 Rock and SNL, you'll be a fan of Bossypants. It's not an in depth, gut-wrenching tell-all memoir. For instance, she only glosses over the incident when she got the facial scar. But if you're familiar with Fey's brand of humor then the lightheartedness of it shouldn't surprise you. She's the sort of average, nice person that has her own strong opinions, but doesn't thi

I figured I would feel exactly about this book as I do about Tina Fey. 90% of the time, I think she's hilarious and smart and I want to be friends with her and I wish I'd thought to say what she said. The other 10% I'd like to tell her (because I'm friends with her) that something she just said was beneath her and I wish she hadn't said it. I was right - that's exactly how this book was.

But ignoring all of those yet-to-happen things that she still somehow managed to allude to like some kind of weird comedic prophet, this book was downright funny and relatable. Well, as re

I love Tina Fey. But I loved her more before I read this book. Now I know she's human and capable of disappointing me. This moment was inevitable. But still a little sad.
That said, there were portions of this book that killed me. Her 'Origin Story' was hilarious, especially the talk about her scar and people’s reactions to it. Also, she is a genius when it comes to discussing everyday gender fuckery. I loved her whole take on menstruation and how she thought period blood would be blue because of

Listening to Tina Fey perform this book was much more enjoyable than reading it in print. I first read this back in 2011, and I liked it OK, but after hearing a friend rave about how much fun the audio was, I decided to give the CD a chance.
It was hilarious! Some mornings I was laughing so hard while driving to work that other drivers would stare at me. Tina Fey performs different voices and really sells the stories. One of my favorite chapters was about her father, Don Fey: 'He's just a badass.

I was expecting more funny.
Having read a small portion of this book online (A Mother's Prayer) and having found that very entertaining, I had high hopes for this book. And I should say, it's not a bad read. It's just not that funny. I laughed out loud maybe once, and smiled a few times more. Most of the jokes fell under the category of fairly amusing. Maybe as a script, it'd be great.
Note: The rest of this review has been withdrawn due to the recent changes in Goodreads policy and enforcement.

Let's start with the good stuff:
- It's extremely funny. And not just 'laugh out loud' funny, but 'laugh *so* out loud your spouse asks you to go read in another room because you're keeping him awake.' If you enjoy Tina Fey's humor, you'll really appreciate this book. It's damn funny.
- It's (unexpectedly) full of really good advice about how to be a good boss. I mean, maybe I should have gleaned that from the title but I expected it to

I was hesitant to start listening to Bossypants because, like seemingly every other person on this planet, Liz Lemon is one of my favorite television characters of all time. My subconscious (and let's be honest here, also my conscious) mind just wanted to listen to a book about Liz Lemon being Liz Lemon.

I wish that Tina Fey was my best friend. By the first paragraph I was laughing and in tears the next. She has her own way of bringing to light so many issues that women face daily, and her hard ass approach to deal with them was a breath of fresh air.
