Review (from the back cover)
Once in a generation a woman comes along who changes everything. Tina Fey is not that woman, but she met that woman once and acted weird around her.
PRAISE FOR TINA FEY:
"You'd be really pretty if you lost weight." (College Boyfriend, 1990 )
"Tina Fey is an ugly, pear-shaped, overrated troll." (The Internet )
"Mommy, where are my pretzels?" (Tracy Morgan )
ADVANCE PRAISE FOR BOSSYPANTS:
"I hope that's not really the cover. That's really going to hurt sales." (Don Fey, Father of Tina Fey )
"Absolutely delicious!" (A Guy Who Eats Books )
"Totally worth it." (Trees )
"Do not print this glowing recommendation of Tina Fey's book until I've been dead a hundred years." (Mark Twain )
"Hilarious and insightful. Laugh-out-loud funny -- oh no, a full moon. No! Arrgh! Get away from me! Save yourself!" (A Guy Turning into a Werewolf )
In my sidebar I always have the book that I'm reading listed there. Since hearing that Tina Fey wrote a book, I knew I needed to have it. I went to my local Barnes and Noble and dug in. First off, let me say that comedians (even Tina Fey) are crass. There is a bit of swearing in the book and some sexual references that made me a bit uncomfortable in the first little bit. After getting past that, the book is downright hilarious. I laughed out loud so many times. I'd read it while Karl was at work and the second he got home, I couldn't wait to divulge stories. My favorites were her honeymoon on a cruise and participating in a fashion shoot. I could not stop laughing. While Bossypants is hilarious, it's also charmingly down to earth. Tina Fey talks about being a working mom, her stance on politics, and how much she looks up to her dad. I adore her honesty, but also her ability to make (sometimes sad) events in her own life funny. I appreciate her voice, and I also appreciate what she has done for women, especially in comedy. She is a strong, intelligent, funny woman and I definitely look up to her for that. I really did enjoy this book a lot. I'm not going to say that it's for everyone, but I definitely love it and fell even more in love with Tina Fey while reading it. What do you think? Are you going to give it a shot?
