Bossypants by Tina Fey: Book Review, Summary & Analysis
Before Liz Lemon, before "Weekend Update," before "Sarah Palin," Tina Fey was just a young girl with a dream: a recurring stress dream that she was being chased through a local airport by her middle-school gym teacher. She also had a dream that one day she would be a comedian on TV.
She has seen both these dreams come true.
At last, Tina Fey's story can be told. From her youthful days as a vicious nerd to her tour of duty on Saturday Night Live; from her passionately halfhearted pursuit of physical beauty to her life as a mother eating things off the floor; from her one-sided college romance to her nearly fatal honeymoon - from the beginning of this paragraph to this final sentence.
Tina Fey reveals all and proves what we've all suspected: you're no one until someone calls you bossy.

Excerpts from Bossypants
This was compounded by the fact that Whitney Houston's cover of I Will Always Love You was constantly on my FM Walkman radio around that time. I think that made me cry because I associated it with absolutely no one.——Quoted from the chapter: Young men's Christian associate
