Tina Fey does a spot-on Jane Krakowski impression. I listened to this one on audiobook, which I rarely do, because audiobooks are so often poorly read. Not so Bossypants, probably due to Fey's performance background. She's engaging from beginning to end and, more importantly, the book itself is thoroughly entertaining.

Fey reflects on her life, from childhood up through her current career, served up with her laser-sharp New York wit. Her profile of her charmster father, Don Fey, is alone worth the price of the book. And the behind-the-scenes glimpses into her stint at SNL and the creation of 30 Rock are fun. She weaves in plenty of social commentary along the way, from the treatment of women by the media and entertainment industry (and each other), to body image, to perceptions of working moms.

A smart, fun read!
