IN A PERFECT WORLD...

We’d get to hang out with Amy Poehler, watching dumb movies, listening to music, and swapping tales about our coworkers and difficult childhoods. Because in a perfect world, we’d all be friends with Amy — someone who seems so fun, is full of interesting stories, tells great jokes, and offers plenty of advice and wisdom (the useful kind, not the annoying kind you didn’t ask for, anyway). Unfortunately, between her Golden Globe-winning role on Parks and Recreation, work as a producer and director, place as one of the most beloved SNL alumni and cofounder of the Upright Citizens Brigade, involvement with the website Smart Girls at the Party, frequent turns as acting double for Meryl Streep, and her other gig as the mom of two young sons, she’s not available for movie night.

Luckily, we have the next best thing: Yes Please, Amy’s hilarious and candid book. A collection of stories, thoughts, ideas, lists, and haiku from the mind of one of our most beloved entertainers, Yes Please offers Amy’s thoughts on everything from her “too safe” childhood outside of Boston to her early days in new York City, her ideas about Hollywood and “the biz,” the demon that looks back at all of us in the mirror, and her joy at being told she has a “face for wigs.” Yes Please is a chock-full of words and wisdom to live by.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Laugh out loud This is a laugh out loud book. An entertaining and funny autobiography in which you could tell Amy wrote (mostly) herself. I caught myself lol'ing numerous times with tears of laughter as a result. This book is a must-have for an SNL aficionado anyone who enjoys a good laugh will appreciate this book!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from No, Thank You I LOVE Amy Poehler, but I didn't love this book. I didn't laugh much, and I found it a bit hard to read at times. Overall I found it pretty boring, but it's worth a read if you're a fan of hers because she does explain a lot about how she got in to comedy and show business.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good read This book is a good read, it is also an easy read. I was expecting laugh out loud funny from Poehler and it wasn't but it was insightful and interesting. She has lived quite the life and has a lot of beautiful advice. Young girls should be made to read this book!
