Last week, Google had the wonderful opportunity to meet comedian and author Tina Fey. Eric Schmidt asked her about her past, present and future, and read several passages from her debut book Bossypants. The new book is a New York Times best seller and you can purchase it at the Google eBookstore.
Here is an excerpt from the introduction explaining the book's title:
"Why is this book called Bossypants? One, because the name Two and a Half Men was already taken. And two, because ever since I became an executive producer of 30 Rock, people have asked me, 'Is it hard for you, being the boss?' and 'Is it uncomfortable for you to be the person in charge?' You know, in that same way they say, 'Gosh, Mr. Trump, is it awkward for you to be the boss of all these people?'"
Fey discussed her road to stardom, adventures in motherhood, and favorite lines from 30 Rock. She even answered live questions from Googlers and fans all over the world, including who her favorite guest star on 30 Rock was. "We've had so many guest stars on 30 Rock. We've been so lucky," she said. Fey called out favorites like Mad Men's Jon Hamm, comedian Tim Conway and former Saturday Night Live cast member Jan Hooks.
