    "I've always thought Tina Fey was hilarious and her book "Bossypants" pants is no exception. This book gives you a lot of interesting information regarding what goes on backstage inside the various comedic programs Tina has been on such as Saturday Night Live and 30 Rock. If you're into any of her work, you'll absolutely love this book as insights are provided that you cannot get anywhere else. There are quite a few "vulgar" areas of the book but that doesn't really bother me much and I would still highly recommend it to anyone interested. Also, do yourself a favor and listen to the audio version if you can as it is voiced by Tina herself and it is an absolute riot."
