Bossypants, as you might guess from the cover, isn't a typical star memoir. It’s a quick look at Tina Fey's childhood and early life and then more on her time at SNL and then at 30 Rock. Mixed in with all of this is a narrative of what it’s like to be a woman in power in the entertainment business. It’s funny and down to earth and honest – in a guarded kind of way (which I respect). Reading this book reminded me that no matter how sick I sometimes might get of Liz Lemon, I want to see more from Tina Fey.
