Bossypants by Tina Fey Book Review

Before Liz Lemon, before "Weekend Update," before "Sarah Palin," Tina Fey was just a young girl with a dream: a recurring stress dream that she was being chased through a local airport by her middle-school gym teacher. She also had a dream that one day she would be a comedian on TV.

She has seen both these dreams come true.

At last, Tina Fey's story can be told. From her youthful days as a vicious nerd to her tour of duty on Saturday Night Live; from her passionately halfhearted pursuit of physical beauty to her life as a mother eating things off the floor; from her one-sided college romance to her nearly fatal honeymoon -- from the beginning of this paragraph to this final sentence.

Tina Fey reveals all, and proves what we've all suspected: you're no one until someone calls you bossy.

(Includes Special, Never-Before-Solicited Opinions on Breastfeeding, Princesses, Photoshop, the Electoral Process, and Italian Rum Cake!)

Mandie's Thoughts - This was the most hilarious memoir I have ever read. Whether you like her or not, this is funny. REALLY funny! I've watched a little Saturday Night Live but I've never watched 30 Rock, I might now. Sarah, I mean Tina was very self depreciating at times but it gave you an honest look at who she is. She's actually pretty normal. She's a mom trying to balance her work, marriage, and child. If you have any sense of humor you NEED to pick up this book.

Can't wait to read this book. On a huge waiting list at the library then we both have to read it before the three weeks are up. A challenge I can meet if it is as funny as everyone says.

Thanks for the review.
