Mini Review: Bossypants (Tina Fey)

Title: Bossypants
Author: Tina Fey
Genre: Adult Non-Fiction
Pages: I have no idea since I listened to the audio book
Rating: 4.5 out of 5
Challenges: Dewey Read-a-Thon
FTC Disclosure: I bought this audio book
Summary (from my brain): Since I listened to the audio book I don't have an official description of the book so I think I'll combine the summary and the review because with this book, that will work really well.

Review: Funny, interesting, entertaining, enlightening. These are all words that describe Bossypants by Tina Fey. I realize I haven't even really seen a ton of her on-screen work, but now I want to watch all the past episodes of "30 Rock".

Tina Fey is intelligent and funny when she talks about the following subjects in this book:

  • Reaching puberty--by far one of the funniest segments in the book
  • What it's like to be a woman in comedy, on television, on SNL, and in "the industry" in general--not so easy some of the time, really hard some of the time, and fun some of the time
  • Being pregnant and having a child--I can totally relate to what she was talking about, especially about having trouble with breast feeding and the guilt!
  • Being a working mom
  • Family holidays, growing up, parents, and family in general
If you'd like to be entertained and do some laughing, this is the book. She definitely doesn't hide her personal and political beliefs in her stories, but she isn't pushing an agenda either.
