Amazon Best Books of the Month, April 2011: Tina Fey’s new book Bossypants is short, messy, and impossibly funny (an apt description of the comedian herself). From her humble roots growing up in Pennsylvania to her days doing amateur improv in Chicago to her early sketches on Saturday Night Live, Fey gives us a fascinating glimpse behind the curtain of modern comedy with equal doses of wit, candor, and self-deprecation. Some of the funniest chapters feature the differences between male and female comedy writers ("men urinate in cups"), her cruise ship honeymoon ("it’s very Poseidon Adventure"), and advice about breastfeeding ("I had an obligation to my child to pretend to try"). But the chaos of Fey’s life is best detailed when she’s dividing her efforts equally between rehearsing her Sarah Palin impression, trying to get Oprah to appear on 30 Rock, and planning her daughter’s Peter Pan-themed birthday. Bossypants gets to the heart of why Tina Fey remains universally adored: she embodies the hectic, too-many-things-to-juggle lifestyle we all have, but instead of complaining about it, she can just laugh it off. --Kevin Nguyen--This text refers to the Hardcover edition.
She's honest and open and I feel like I've really gotten to know her by reading this book.
This book had it's funny stories and small bits of wisdom, but overall I was a little disappointed in the lack of depth of the book.
She's a hardworking woman in a man's world and I think she is someone who is very inspiring to teenage girls like myself.

I got the book because of the rave reviews and I haven't found the book to be very funny. I wanted something funny and it was more like "eh" most of the time. Read morePublished 1 day ago by Living bicoastal
