Book of the Day, Tina Fey's Bossypants

by D - Tuesday, Apr 12, 2011 at 10:32am

Book of the Day, Tina Fey's Bossypants.

Bossypants offers hilarious insights into navigating the gender politics of show business. Fey's strategy for dealing with everything from entrenched discrimination to garden-variety chauvinism is to write a joke, a better joke than the other people in the room. Fey's proves that responding to a situation with humor, as opposed to, say, dead-serious self-righteousness, is a rhetorically effective way to get your point across, and makes great TV.

Our events this week in our Winnipeg store.
