Bossypants by Tina Fey Book Summary

Spirited and whip-smart, these laugh-out-loud autobiographical essays are "a masterpiece" from the Emmy Award-winning actress and comedy writer known for 30 Rock, Mean Girls, and SNL" (Sunday Telegraph).

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 always 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!

Funny!I thought this book was quite witty and funny, just like I imagined Tina to be. It wasn't a huge page turner, but definitely a good beach or summer read..Score: 3/5

I never wanted this book to end.I liked Tina Fey before reading this book, but now I LOVE Tina Fey. Her anecdotes and humor gave my insight into how she became the woman she is (she's successful, but definitely had to pay a price for that success with her personal life), how she views the world, and why we need her to keep doing what she does. She's fighting the good fight for women everywhere in the entertainment world. I thank her for that. She inspired me just as much as she made me laugh. I hope she writes more!.Score: 5/5

Bossypants- Refreshingly trueIn the tradition of the style of the insightful Rachel Maddow, Tina Fey writes directly about current and timely topics in a style that shows clarity, humility, and wit. Her book, while presenting an interesting history of her career path, reads like an informal, conversational commentary on life in front and behind the scenes. In discussing her Sarah Palin role, she graciously defers to her fellow actors, writers, and make up/hair cast and crew, in describing how this experience fit in with her personal growth and reflected the mood of national politics at the time. Ms. Fey seemingly effortlessly entertains with her ability to turn even a long trip to visit the in-law's for the holidays, into a cheery commentary on how to turn a routine situation into a fun comedy bit. It's no wonder that she calls her work her dream job; it's a perfect fit -lucky for us! We could all learn to use humor to get through the day! Louise D. Herman.Score: 5/5

Thank God for virtual paper!Laughed my butt off. Tina Fey is absolutely hilarious. My only gripes come with sort of stupid little annoyances...20 pages of * footnotes? Was this just for the digital version? Then another 6 or 7 pages of reviews... Like I said, just nit-picky stuff... still funny as heck and worth the purchase..Score: 5/5

Comedic GeniusTina Fey is honest, down to earth and just down right a comedic genius! She shows us that women can strive to become whatever we set our minds to. She gives us a look into her life and makes the reader feel as if she was having a conversation with you. Whether you love her for her work on 30 Rock, SNL, her films or you just picked up the book because your friend recommended it to you, it's safe to say that you will not, I repeat will not, put this book down until you're finished with it!.Score: 5/5

Absolutely HilariousThis is truly one of the funniest books I have ever read... So funny, in fact, that I wrote down and started using some of Tina Fey's hilarious verbiage. This is a must-read whether you're a girl or guy..Score: 5/5

Worst book I've ever purchasedBossypants is a waste of time and money. The book has no structure and it's not at all funny. Actually it's offensive. I don't really understand how the book is supposed to go, she tells a life story and then starts up with her offensive jokes. I don't write reviews typically, so if I'm taking time out of my day to save you from this book then you know it's bad..Score: 1/5

Bossypants"Hey, that's Don Fey?" Classic! Thanks for so many laughs! I really enjoy your work, anxiety, and sense of humor! It's like looking in a mirror, only the face shape is different, the job is different, and I don't have kids!.Score: 5/5

Everyone could benefit from reading this!Tina Fey is hilarious from cover to cover, and is someone that I honestly felt I could relate to. She was able to mix the perfect cocktail for humor but serious lessons from her successful life. I suggest especially young women (and women born specifically in the late 70s/early 80s) to give it a try. I didn't know what I expected but I absolutely loved what I found..Score: 5/5

Fast Food WritingThe book wasn't as good as I had anticipated it to be. It seems as though it was written too quickly and didn't give Fey a chance to let her comedic talents shine as well as they could have with more time. To a certain extent, it's understandable, knowing that with popularity and profit, time is always of the essence. There are many good moments and angles that could have been developed more, such as the (slow) evolution of expectations and stereotypes for women in comedy, the struggle to find balance between home & professional life, and the consequences for female impersonators of political figures. It was a brave & ernest move to discuss every woman's dilemma regarding children; I personally appreciated her candidness. It was a nice, quick read, but perhaps my expectations for more insight and wit were too high considering the price I paid for the book..Score: 3/5

AwesomitoOne of the funniest books I've ever read. I read it in between college classes and had to stop as I bursted out laughing too many times in public areas..Score: 5/5

Yay Tina FayI must admit , my generation did not grow up watching Saturday Night Live ( or Saturday Night Alive as my grandmother called it). However, I found this book insightful on the ins and outs of the most famous sketch comedy show ever. Oh, and I liked Tina's story as well! It was entertaining, hilarious, and moving (ok maybe not the last part. But the dang thing was good! I hope she decides to write a second book soon titled, "Tina Tina, Bang Bang" and shares all of her sexcapAdes .. Someone just told me that's what this book was about... Oh.. My bad.
