BossyPants By Tina Fry Review

If you're a fan of the Saturday Night Live you know who Tina Fry is.
Tina Fey’s new book Bossypants is short, messy, and impossibly funny (an apt description of the comedian herself). From her humble roots growing up in Pennsylvania to her days doing amateur improv in Chicago to her early sketches on Saturday Night Live, Fey gives us a fascinating glimpse behind the curtain of modern comedy with equal doses of wit, candor, and self-deprecation. Some of the funniest chapters feature the differences between male and female comedy writers ("men urinate in cups"), her cruise ship honeymoon ("it’s very Poseidon Adventure"), and advice about breastfeeding ("I had an obligation to my child to pretend to try"). But the chaos of Fey’s life is best detailed when she’s dividing her efforts equally between rehearsing her Sarah Palin impression, trying to get Oprah to appear on 30 Rock, and planning her daughter’s Peter Pan-themed birthday. Bossypants gets to the heart of why Tina Fey remains universally adored: she embodies the hectic, too-many-things-to-juggle lifestyle we all have, but instead of complaining about it, she can just laugh it off.
I started reading this book and could not put it down. Tina made me laugh out loud many times as I was reading it. As her sense of humor really makes you laugh that hard. If you are feeling blue~believe me you want this book. She has a way of making things that start bad and twists it so it is funny!
The chapter titled "Dear Internet"~Tina Fey is an ugly, pear-shaped, bitchy, overrated troll." She responds~to say"I'm an overrated troll, when you have never even seen me guard a bridge, is patently unfair." 
Just by that line you can tell that you are going to love her book!

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!) So what are you waiting for? Go get a copy of Bossypants~You know ya want too!
