📖 In Amy Poehler’s highly anticipated first book, Yes Please, she offers up a big juicy stew of personal stories, funny bits on sex and love and friendship and parenthood and real life advice (some useful, some not so much), like when to be funny and when to be serious. Powered by Amy’s charming and hilarious, biting yet wise voice, Yes Please is a book full of words to live by.📖
If you are looking for a funny memoir with more comedy than real life experiences or insight into said celebrities personal life than look no further.
Truthfully I was pretty disappointed with this novel. I really love Amy Poehler and I was looking forward to more insight into her life and career. And while this was truly funny (because why wouldn’t it be funny coming from her?), I felt that all she really did was outline her career and throw in some humor in between facts. There was also some life advice, but she didn’t pair it with experiences which made it fall a little flat.
I will say that I tried to read this and it was kind of a boring read for me, so I switched to the audiobook and that truly helped and livened the book up. Amy reads it herself and also has some fun celebrity cameos which made it much more enjoyable to read.
Language: Moderate amount of language
Other: Some sexual innuendo throughout
