Bossypants was an experiment in audio books for me which I listened to through the execution of very tedious tasks, such as jogging and housepainting. Normally, I have a hard time focusing on aural narratives, unless they're short and chopped up (as in This American Life). So it was fortunate that Fey also broke her story into extremely short chapters, making it easy to put down and pick up again without getting lost.

I loved that Fey read it herself although it was a little eerie to discover how similar the character Liz Lemon is to Tina Fey. The two most thoughtful arguments she shared were on the use of Photoshop and dealing with judgment, both in the workplace and on the homefront. The most entertaining story she told was of hiking up Old Rag Mountain at night, in wrestling shoes, without water, just to impress a boy...in an amusingly awkward love triangle.

This is a fast, mostly fluffy, fun read from a comedy darling.
