I laugh at pretty much anything Tina Fey does. Her humor is smart and just laugh-out-loud funny. I was excited to read her new book Bossypants, and it didnt disappoint.

Filled throughout with photos from her childhood and early years in the comedy-writing industry, Bossypants tells how Fey grew up embracing her funny bone, and how it eventually led to her success as a writer on Saturday Night Live and creator of her immensely popular sitcom 30 Rock. She makes a lot of sarcastic comments, which I quite enjoy but can understand if some people don't.

While the book as a whole is an entertaining and hilarious read, I just wasn't sure what the focus was supposed to be. I originally thought it was a memoir — which it sort of is. But it also is like a mock self-help guide for women who want to make it as a "bossypants" too. I think better editing would have made the book more cohesive, because sometimes it felt like it was bouncing all over the place.
