What Bossy Pants is about:
Tina Fey tells the reader about her childhood, how she fell in love with improv, worked her way through crappy jobs to finally land a prime writing spot on the Saturday Night Live team and create her own television show, 30 Rock.
Why I wanted to listen to this one on audio: I first became interested in this one because of Kathy's (Bermuda Onion) review of the book. Then I read Stacy's (Stacy's Books) review of the audio version and I just knew that I needed to listen to this one!

- I laughed while listening to this one on my way to work and laughed going home at the end of the day. That is a wonderful way to start and end each work day....right?
- I liked Tina's self-deprecating humor. She is pretty darn humble and easy to like.
- Most of her stories were pretty funny. Even though she's a "STAR" I think many of us could easily identify with her as she went through those stages of awkwardness and self-doubt in our teen years.
- I really enjoyed the fact that we're very close in age so when she was talking of her childhood I felt like I had come home!
- Her stories about SNL and 30 Rock were interesting to listen to and I've since watched some of the 30 Rock episodes that she talked about and found myself going..."Oh, so that is what she meant!"
- She's a strong woman in a man's world and she's making her mark!
I love my blogging friends and they were spot on with their reviews. This was a fun book and the audio was just what I needed. I really enjoyed listening to Tina tell her story! And I loved the PDF that she included on the last disc...the pictures cracked me up!
