SEVEN REASONS WHY YOU SHOULD READ BOSSYPANTS THIS MONTH:
1. You had an awkward phase.
Tina Fey’s phase was probably worse than yours, and assuredly funnier. She has no pride about her unattractiveness throughout childhood and most of her adolescence, and it seems that she won’t be upset if that makes you feel better about yourself.
2. You’d like to be the boss one day.
Fey was the head writer for Saturday Night Live for several years before she was the writer/producer/star of ‘30 Rock.’ Bossypants contains straightforward advice about recruiting and motivating a great staff. Her observations about female leadership, and all of the inane questions that come your way when you’re the boss and a woman, are spot-on, and you’ll want to steal some of her snappy comebacks.
3. You are discouraged about your career.
Tina’s career trajectory will help you relax about making the ‘right’ choices and trust yourself.
4. You want to lose weight.
Read the chapter about Fey’s experience being very thin.
5. You desperately need beauty advice.
If you take the same approach to beauty that Fey does, you’ll never need beauty advice again.
6. You’ve never seen ‘30 Rock.’
Most people have never seen ’30 Rock.’ Critics loved it but not many people ever saw it. There are some descriptions in the book that are almost as good as the show, so you can pretend you’ve seen it.
7. You need a release.
The book is laugh-out-loud funny. Read it because it’s fun and you need a diversion.
