"You're no one until someone calls you bossy."

Managing to be both uproariously hilarious as well as insightful, Bossypants is a rare treat in the world of celebrity memoirs. Tina Fey tells her story as only she could - through humorous anecdotes that deftly combine her trademark razor-sharp wit and brutal honesty. Wearing many hats in the entertainment industry, Tina draws from her varied experiences as a writer, comedian, actress and producer to give you the inside scoop on her extremely successful career with humor and humility.

Bossypants covers a great deal of ground including telling the story of how Tina came to join Saturday Night Live as a writer and later rose through the ranks to become the venerable show's head writer. Also detailed is how she managed to become one of SNL's most popular performers, most notably her stint as a Weekend Update co-anchor. Tina also explains how she created the Emmy-winning hit series 30 Rock. From single life to marriage, career and motherhood no stone in Tina Fey's life is left unturned in this powerfully funny and uniquely introspective autobiography.

Vastly entertaining and filled with fascinating insights Bossypants is certainly a biography like no other. Narrated by Tina Fey, this Grammy nominated unabridged audiobook is the most enjoyable way to enjoy Bossypants!

Before Liz Lemon, before “Weekend Update,” and 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 television.

She has seen both of 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 to her passionately halfhearted pursuit of physical beauty. From her life as a mother eating things off the floor to a one-sided college romance to her nearly fatal honeymoon, Tina Fey reveals all, and proves what we have all suspected: you’re no one until someone calls you bossy.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Holly Bender | 2/18/2014

    " If you love Tina Fey, Saturday Night Live (which I grew up on), and 30 Rock (one of the funniest shows on television) then you will appreciate this book. I love her perspective - brilliantly smart and funny. This book is somewhat biographical and also includes interesting dynamics between genders in show biz. She's a modern day feminist for sure. "

    " If you like Tina Fey, then you'll love this one. Since I watched her on SNL, I could hear her voice saying every line. I laughed. The beginning was a little slow for me (a lot of "girl" talk) but after that it was great. "
