Yes Please

Book: Yes Please
Author: Amy Poehler

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 is full of words to live by.-Goodreads

Review: My first thought upon finishing this was that I need to increase my rating for Tina Fey and Mindy Kaling's books. Maybe I was too harsh with them? I don't know why I'm comparing them but I can't help myself.  This had a few funny moments  but overall it was just okay. I'm not a SNL fan but I enjoy Parks and Rec and wanted to read behind the scenes details as well as info about her relationship with Will Arnett. She barely talks about Will Arnett at all (which I can understand) and while there were a few tidbits about Parks and Rec, I was left wanting more. She really shines talking about how much she loves her kids and while she seems like a person who always needs to be the center of attention and probably exhausting to be around, she seems like a nice person. 

Grade: 2/5
