Yes please de Amy Poehler


In a perfect world . . .

We’d get to hang out with Amy Poehler, watching movies, listening to music, and swapping tales about our difficult childhoods. Because in a perfect world, we’d all be friends with Amy – someone who seems so much 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). Unfortunately, between her Golden Globe-winning role on Parks and Recreation, work as a producer and director, place as one of the most beloved Saturday Night Live alumni, involvement with the website Smart Girls at the Party, frequent turns as an 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 anecdotes, essays, ideas, lists, and haikus from the mind of one of America’s 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 showbusiness, the demon that looks back at all of us in the mirror, and her joy at being told she has ‘a face for wigs’. A delight on every page, Yes Please is chock-full of words, and wisdom, to live by.

All you expect and more. Funny, brilliant, generous
Amy Poehler a) RULES, b) radiates energy, positivity, wile, and humor in her performances and appearances, and if you are in touch with your feelings, you want to be her best friend. This is it, people. She wrote a book for us.
Like a big sister or beloved camp counselor, AP is insightful and plain about her boundaries as a persona and a person, but somehow this makes you feel even more trusted and sated throughout. And it’s fuuunny, in the least self-conscious ways–like improv, really. Surprising and flowy. «Don’t think.» It’s all intimate and candid, pragmatic, funny, humble, meaningful. SNLers and other A-List stars are frequently mentioned, but I can’t remember any names named in negative light, or reputations sullied. A thoroughly classy memoir that still dives wholeheartedly into considered issues of conflict, dogma, shame, anger, and sadness. But mostly glee and passion. It’s all life, mofos! She knows who she is and isn’t going to dress it up. She’s concisely specific and warm about everyone she loves, and honestly, she makes me wish I were born in Boston, because that (along with her supportive, loving family) is what she points to throughout the book that gave her boldness, bravado, and clarity in a way a less brilliant and authentic comedian/personality/human wouldn’t know what to do with. Respect, Boston. And respect times a billion, Amy. It made me laugh and cry and think and readjust in all the best ways. And I devoured it. So glad you kept writing.

I loved this book
I loved this book! Let me start by saying that I am a big Amy Poehler fan so I have been waiting on this book. She was my girl on SNL and Parks & Rec might be one of my top 3 favorite shows of all time.
She tells us about her life growing up, about improv in Chicago and everything in between. I had no idea she has known Tina Fey so long. Tons of name dropping but in the best ways. Funny people do run together! It’s a fun, quick read.
She doesn’t talk about her divorce and does not trash her ex Will Arnett and that makes me respect and love her even more. The way she describes her children is beautiful and the enormous love she has for them is obvious through her words. It’s just a great book. If you like Amy Poehler, you will love it. If you are so so or unfamiliar with her, give it a chance, it might make you love her!

Amy Poehler, highly decent human being
This book turned me into a big fan of Amy Poehler. I’ve long been aware of her diverse talents as an entertainer, but this memoir reveals much about her values, priorities, work ethic, and character. I got a lot of inspiration from her take on friendship, her generosity toward pretty much everyone (except the man in First Class on the flight to Toronto), and her cogent one-line defense of bossy women.
