Bossypants by Tina Fey


Hachette Audio

Release Date:
April 2011

Audio Book

Tina Fey tells all in this one from her childhood to her days as a Second City and Saturday Night Live writer to her time as one of the stars of the NBC-TV show 30 Rock.

This is the audio version and Tina narrates this herself, complete with her brand of humor laced throughout the entire CD. Thera are even a couple of skits from SNL thrown in.

It makes a huge difference in hearing this in Tina’s own voice. I don’t watch 30 Rock but this book makes me want to. I think she’s a wonderful comedienne and a great writer. Listening to this book really gave me a good feel for what goes on behind the scenes and what actors/writers/directors, etc. are all going through. We may read things in the newspapers, but we don’t really know what’s going on unless we are actually there.

This audio is only five CD’s and I was able to listen to it in only a week – going to and from work. It was a really nice companion and made the commute not seem so bad.

This is a 5 kitty and a Socrates Great Book Alert!


  1. Sounds like an interesting story! I know audio books are a great idea, but it is so hard for me to actually listen to one.

  2. Thanks for the review on a book that I've been intrigued about. I do watch 30 Rock and I find the humor to be ridiculously funny and clever so I'm sure it will make me laugh. I'd rather get the audio books b/c I need something interesting to listen to while I drive to pet sitting client's homes.

  3. this is intriguing. I love Tina Fey and I am quite "bossy" lol...sounds like the perfect book for me!
