“What is the rudest question you can ask a woman?”

FwyTina Fey — arguably one of the funniest, most influential comedians today — says that the rudest question you can ask a woman isn’t about weight or age. It’s a question that men are rarely asked, namely, “How do you juggle it all?” She says that people constantly ask her that “with an accusatory look in their eyes.” I love this memoir because it turns the heavy subject of being a woman boss in a male-dominated profession into comedic material. It takes great skill to maintain an engaging tone while writing about the eye-opening double-standards she has faced.

    I love Tina Fey and enjoy reading your comments on the books that you read. I may need to read this one myself.
