Summary: (from Amazon) 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!)

I read Bossypants for our book club in town. I had been planning on reading it for a while. I really enjoy Tina Fey's humor and all the little antidotes in the story. She has a way with words that just creep up on you and you bust out laughing. I loved the book alot she let us in on growing up with her parents and just up to now with 30rock. She even threw in a little bit about her skit of Sarah Palin in the book. I think the cover pretty much sums up Tina Fey's humor. She has her lovely face on the cover then giant man hands. Just ridiculous humor that I love so much.

Overall it was a good read, and pretty short. So if you like witty, sarcastic humor this book is definitely for you :)
