About this item
Because her comedy relies on hilarious cultural criticism and self-aware witticism, it's no surprise that Tina Fey's first book, BOSSYPANTS, is much more entertaining than your average celebrity essay collection. Here, the woman behind THIRTY ROCK and the best impersonation of Sarah Palin--ever--riffs on career ambition and television culture; dating dangers and treacherous honeymoons; her early days in comedy troupes and the endlessly funny road trip that is motherhood.
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 is the best book I have read in a long time. It made me laugh out loud quite often, and I wish it was longer. I recommend this to anybody who wants a good laugh.see moreof the reviewer's review
