I was not expecting much, and honestly I only picked it up because I was flipping through it and saw her "World famous sex advice" and it made me chuckle. I am not a huge Amy Poehler fan, I thought she was funny on SNL but couldn't get into Parks & Rec. I'm a Tina Fey fan all the way, but I was disappointed with "Bossypants" so I didn't think "Yes Please" would be any better. I was wrong. I am not saying this is the best book you will ever read, but if you go into it not expecting anything- you will be pleasantly surprised. If you go into it loving her, thinking she is amazing and funny and this is going to be hilarious- you might be disappointed.
It was great to see where she came from and how she got to where she is. Amy Poehler won me over. I have now started watching (and cannot stop)Parks & Rec. She's very down to earth and reading about how much she loves her sons, co-workers, family, etc was refreshing. I love her outlook on life and found myself agreeing with her on most things.
To finish, I will say- Though writing a book might be hard, Amy, I am glad you did. :) ( )

I'm not very familiar with Amy Poehler's work. I recognize her name, and knew she was on SNL and was besties with Tina Fey. I had watched one episode of Parks & Rec but hadn't continued. But after listening to this, I knew I had to give P&R another try (supposedly the first season is the worst and and slog but gets exponentially better in the second season).

I listened to the audiobook of this in the car, while walking, while pretending to jog but really walking, while cooking. It was fun and made me smile, laugh a few times, and nod in agreement with Amy. There were a lot of truths in here that it has taken Amy 43 years to learn, and I wish someone had told me those things when I was younger. ( )

This is a fun book. I listened to the audiobook and I think it would be a great introduction to audiobooks for a complete novice as you almost feel like you are just listening to a friend. ( )

After 13 Reasons Why, I needed a comedic break. I listened to this on a long drive to and from a favorite place and even through some tough traffic, and it really helped the time go by! I forgot how much I like Amy Poehler. She is just so funny and real. I learned alot about her and her journey. It was alot of fun. I often forget that comedians are usually gifted writers, so this was a joyful reminder. I am now ready to binge watch Parks & Rec and SNL. Yes Please. OH! AND SHE had guest appearances by some of my favs: Carol Burnett, Kathleen Turner and the dreamy Patrick Stewart. Amy and I could be true friends. ( )

Ágætis grín hjá Poehler þar sem hún fer hraðbyri yfir ferill sinn við uppistand og feril sinn hjá m.a. Saturday Night Live og ekki síst einkalíf. Mikið af sögum og gríni hennar tengdist þekktum bandarískum sjónvarpsþáttum svo að sumt fór fyrir ofan garð og neðan hjá mér. En þokkalegasta afþreying. ( )

This book is heavy. Perhaps that's because it's so firmly packed with wit and insight. Fans of Poehler and her offbeat characters expect her to be outrageous and there's some of that here, but mostly this is a sweet, funny memoir and a thoughtful look at what it takes to be a woman. In fact, there's lots of advice given here, and it's smart, the kind of stuff your favorite aunt would tell you, albeit, an aunt who once shot a moose on the "Weekend Update" set while rapping alongside Sarah Palin. She addresses how to treat your career (like a bad boyfriend); how not to torture other women about their life choices; ways to shut people up about your newly single status ("Hey, lady, I don't want to fuck your husband"). With so much to enjoy and absorb, you may even want to carry this book around, reread it, and underline pertinent-to-your-own-life sentences, which would be perfectly reasonable, except for the fact that it's so darn heavy.

There is no reason to talk to strangers.
Quick note here: Everybody wants you to share your MOST EMBARRASSING MOMENT all the time, and I'm here to tell you that you don't have to. You don't have to tell it or tweet it or Instagram it. You don't have to put it in a book or share it with anyone who doesn't feel safe and protective of your heart.
I think we don't lie to our children enough.
I think nonprofits should guarantee that giving your time and money makes your skin better and your ass smaller. Why not? There are so many people in the world with so little. Who cares why you decide to help?
A person’s tragedy does not make up their entire life. A story carves deep grooves into our brains each time we tell it. But we aren't one story.
