Tiny Fey is smart and clever and engaging, and has a great comedic voice (even better, I'm told, when she is reading the audiobook to you). Her jokes are continuous, and after awhile I found the pace to be kind of tiring. I am also not a fan of 30 Rock, because its a little too off-color for me, and the book is the same way...great, but every once in a while there was joke that was juuuuust a little too offensive. Still, I'd recommend. ( )

Two words: loved it!

The audio book version is a must. It's like a several hour long stand up routine with the author reading it. I highly recommend it to anyone who likes Tina Fey. ( )

This was as funny as one would expect something written by Tina Fey to be. It was a bonus that she read it on the audiobook. I laughed out loud many times, and had to refrain from doing so while listening during an electrolysis session. (TMI? Sorry.)

My only problem with the book were some editing glitches in the audio toward the end, specifically three or so spots where a phrase was repeated but the redo wasn't edited. It will be clear when you listen. ( )

Only the American comic Tina Fey could get away with such a revelation-free 'memoir'.
 
But Fey’s memoir is wholly cleansed of any real darkness. It preempts any probing into real frailties and flaws. Of course, this is the point; it is designed to disarm.

Neurosis makes Bossypants funny (and it is very funny), but it is fueled by reflexive self-deprecation instead of real reflection.
