Yes, Please by Amy Poehler



Yes, Please by Amy Poehler Audiobook
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.
3 out of 5, here's why:
This book neither made me laugh nor did it make me cry, as promised in the blurbage. I guess this confirms that I am heartless. I am what I am.

Despite that, and despite not knowing much about Amy Poehler, I thought it was an interesting and often amusing listen and I learned a lot about the author's life and her rise to fame. It skips around in time but that didn't bother me because she tells us she's going to do so right from the beginning. She seems like a super fun person who has worked hard to get where she is. She has made mistakes and owns up to them. I liked the bits about her youth best and wish there were more of them featuring her long, lost Boston accent. If you're a super fan, you'll surely get more out of this book than I did. If you're not, you'll probably find it amusing and a decent enough way to spend a few hours.
