    This is not a comedy book. I mean, it's funny. Amy Poehler can't write a book and not be funny, because she's Amy fuckin' Poehler. But (and this is not the first time I'm going to compare the two memoirs) where Tina Fey's Bossypants contained humorous essays written specifically fo...

    Fantastic! Amy Poehler is so funny and relatable and inspirational. I especially loved learning about how she got into comedy and improv (as that's something I'm interested in myself) and just her general attitude and perspective is so refreshing and positive. I actually listened to th...

    YES REALLY. I almost gave this two stars, except it includes George Clooney and that would be a crime. This book is fine. It didn't charm me. It actually took me about three or four days to read 288 pages, which is funny because a lot of those pages don't include any actual wor...

    It breaks my heart to give this book one star. I love Amy Poehler. In fact I love every member of that early two-thousands (the decade, not the century) female Saturday Night Live cast ensemble: Poehler, Fey, Rudolph, Dratch. I often mentally include Kristen Wiig in the mix,...

    No, thank you. I was supposed to love this book and as I always do when I find myself super disappointed, I looked back through other reviews to see if I was alone. I don't think I am alone, but no one is expressing my disappointment quite how I need it to be expressed, so I get to ...

    This was pretty good! ? I have the paperback but I listened to it on audio. She read the book herself and I love that. You get all of the true feelings when they read their own work. I loved looking at all of the pictures in the book as well. My copy is a small paperback ...

    HIGHLY HIGHLY RECOMMEND THE AUDIOBOOK! Amy Poehler is so genuine and awesome! On the audiobook she has special guests, a live audience for the final chapter, lots of random conversation, and all sorts of extra awesomness! LOVED THIS! :D ...

    Whelp, look for a flood of reviews coming in, cleaning out my bedroom/office before I go on the road for book tour! That also includes a lot of autobiographies I read as research/pleasure in the last year, preparing and writing my book that I need to add to Goodreads. I had to cut m...

    AMY IS INCREDIBLE. She is hilarious and down-to-earth and isn't afraid to admit her faults. I really enjoy her and I enjoyed this book. ...

    4 Stars "It takes years as a woman to unlearn what you have been taught to be sorry for. It takes years to find your voice and seize your real estate." I don't watch a lot of TV. Now before you roll your eyes, I'm not trying to earn hipster cred here before waxing poetic a...

    4.5 Stars I listened to this on audiobook, as I now will choose to do when reading memoirs or autobiographies, and this was a VERY enjoyable experience. The audiobook I got from my library is narrated by Amy, and it was such a joy to listen to her deliver these jokes and discuss her...

    Disappointing! Poehler complains about how hard it is to write a book many times, which is annoying, but I can't see how it would be hard to write a bad book. It's so obvious she was forced to do this, it's written from a bad place and I felt that bad place the whole time I was reading...

    Another fun read from the subgenre I like to call, "Memoirs written by women who worked on SNL". It's overall a fun and humourous read. It may have needed some editing and could have lost a couple chapters but as a whole it's a memorable memoir. It's fun and that's all it needed to be....

    Once a woman turns 40 she has to start dealing with two things: younger men telling her they are proud of her and older men letting her know they would have sex with her. Both of these things are supposed to be compliments but can often end up making this particular woman angry. I don'...

    Sweet read! True metaphors for the fame-inclined abound, & the author (as early as page four) becomes one of the best friends you never had! Poehler does 3 things at once-- she gives you insight into her personal life... the Wikipedia stuff and then some; she becomes retrospective ...

    I am probably not the only one who has a girl crush on Amy Poehler. She's funny, she's smart, she's sassy and she does good work. But I hope my future best friend will forgive me when I say her book is less than great. "Yes Please" is a fun little memoir about Amy's childhood, how ...

    I LOVE Amy Poehler. This book just highlighted my favorite parts about her and also showed me some of her faults, which she owned up to. She just seems like such a genuine and down to earth person and I love it. I also highly recommend the audio book! I read the first half with the ph...

    Yes Please I admit that it took me by surprise how much I enjoyed Amy Poehler's Yes Please. Perhaps because she is an performer and an entertainer, audio was the perfect medium to deliver her funny and heartfelt stories. Part memoir/part self-help book, this one doesn't stand out ...

    People are their most beautiful when they are laughing, crying, dancing, playing, telling the truth, and being chased in a fun way. Oh Amy, you are truly beautiful. I just adore her on Parks and Rec - there's just a certain something about such a positive, upbeat comedy that comp...

    AMEN. ...

    Not knowing 'at all' what to expect, I listened to the audiobook on my overdrive app from the library. I fall asleep too early to watch SNL. I didn't watch the Emmy's. I never heard of Parks and Recreation. The only movie I saw Amy in was "Baby Mama". ... But I did see The Go...

    YES REALLY. I almost gave this two stars, except it includes George Clooney and that would be a crime. This book is fine. It didn't charm me. It actually took me about three or four days to read 288 pages, which is funny because a lot of those pages don't include any actual wor...

    It breaks my heart to give this book one star. I love Amy Poehler. In fact I love every member of that early two-thousands (the decade, not the century) female Saturday Night Live cast ensemble: Poehler, Fey, Rudolph, Dratch. I often mentally include Kristen Wiig in the mix,...

    No, thank you. I was supposed to love this book and as I always do when I find myself super disappointed, I looked back through other reviews to see if I was alone. I don't think I am alone, but no one is expressing my disappointment quite how I need it to be expressed, so I get to ...

    Inspired me to continue on watching Parks & Rec! Very much enjoyed this, and I loved how Amy brought in others to help voice some sections of the book. ...

    This was pretty good! ? I have the paperback but I listened to it on audio. She read the book herself and I love that. You get all of the true feelings when they read their own work. I loved looking at all of the pictures in the book as well. My copy is a small paperback ...

    HIGHLY HIGHLY RECOMMEND THE AUDIOBOOK! Amy Poehler is so genuine and awesome! On the audiobook she has special guests, a live audience for the final chapter, lots of random conversation, and all sorts of extra awesomness! LOVED THIS! :D ...

    [As Will Ferrell impersonating James Lipton:] "Amy, we remember seeing you in various things before you joined SNL in 2001. I'm sure this evoked the same feeling for our audience as most 90?s kids felt when Kenan joined the cast, though we were saddened to learn that he divorced ...

    Whelp, look for a flood of reviews coming in, cleaning out my bedroom/office before I go on the road for book tour! That also includes a lot of autobiographies I read as research/pleasure in the last year, preparing and writing my book that I need to add to Goodreads. I had to cut m...

    AMY IS INCREDIBLE. She is hilarious and down-to-earth and isn't afraid to admit her faults. I really enjoy her and I enjoyed this book. ...

    I picked this up after having listened to Seriously... I'm Kidding on audio and feeling in the mood for something similar to cheer me up while having that damned cold. Also known as: part-two-of-feeling-terrible-and-wanting-an-audiobook-to-cheer-me-up-when-I-don?t-have-the-energy-to-...

    A book by Amy Poehler? Yes, please. This was a little underwhelming, if I am totally honest. It had some funny moments, but didn't quite have the insight I was hoping for. I didn't walk away feeling like I had learned anything new about Amy Poehler, because she chose not to focu...

    4 Stars "It takes years as a woman to unlearn what you have been taught to be sorry for. It takes years to find your voice and seize your real estate." I don't watch a lot of TV. Now before you roll your eyes, I'm not trying to earn hipster cred here before waxing poetic a...

    4.5 Stars I listened to this on audiobook, as I now will choose to do when reading memoirs or autobiographies, and this was a VERY enjoyable experience. The audiobook I got from my library is narrated by Amy, and it was such a joy to listen to her deliver these jokes and discuss her...

    Disappointing! Poehler complains about how hard it is to write a book many times, which is annoying, but I can't see how it would be hard to write a bad book. It's so obvious she was forced to do this, it's written from a bad place and I felt that bad place the whole time I was reading...

    Another fun read from the subgenre I like to call, "Memoirs written by women who worked on SNL". It's overall a fun and humourous read. It may have needed some editing and could have lost a couple chapters but as a whole it's a memorable memoir. It's fun and that's all it needed to be....

    Sweet read! True metaphors for the fame-inclined abound, & the author (as early as page four) becomes one of the best friends you never had! Poehler does 3 things at once-- she gives you insight into her personal life... the Wikipedia stuff and then some; she becomes retrospective ...

    I am probably not the only one who has a girl crush on Amy Poehler. She's funny, she's smart, she's sassy and she does good work. But I hope my future best friend will forgive me when I say her book is less than great. "Yes Please" is a fun little memoir about Amy's childhood, how ...

    I LOVE Amy Poehler. This book just highlighted my favorite parts about her and also showed me some of her faults, which she owned up to. She just seems like such a genuine and down to earth person and I love it. I also highly recommend the audio book! I read the first half with the ph...

    Yes Please I admit that it took me by surprise how much I enjoyed Amy Poehler's Yes Please. Perhaps because she is an performer and an entertainer, audio was the perfect medium to deliver her funny and heartfelt stories. Part memoir/part self-help book, this one doesn't stand out ...

    People are their most beautiful when they are laughing, crying, dancing, playing, telling the truth, and being chased in a fun way. Oh Amy, you are truly beautiful. I just adore her on Parks and Rec - there's just a certain something about such a positive, upbeat comedy that comp...

    AMEN. ...

    Not knowing 'at all' what to expect, I listened to the audiobook on my overdrive app from the library. I fall asleep too early to watch SNL. I didn't watch the Emmy's. I never heard of Parks and Recreation. The only movie I saw Amy in was "Baby Mama". ... But I did see The Go...

    This was just okay for me, but that might be because I listened to Yes Please directly after Leah Remini's Troublemaker: Surviving Hollywood and Scientology, which in hindsight was probably a disservice. But whatever, this wasn't as funny as I was hoping it'd be, and I think I laughed ...

    3.5 stars ~ Having YES PLEASE sitting on my Kobo shelf for quite a while unread I decided to give the audio version a try as my sister Brenda listens to audiobooks frequently and told me that I must give it a try. So now I have, Brenda! lol I found this book to be entertaining and I...

    I LOVE Amy Poehler. This book just highlighted my favorite parts about her and also showed me some of her faults, which she owned up to. She just seems like such a genuine and down to earth person and I love it. I also highly recommend the audio book! I read the first half with the ph...

    Yes Please I admit that it took me by surprise how much I enjoyed Amy Poehler's Yes Please. Perhaps because she is an performer and an entertainer, audio was the perfect medium to deliver her funny and heartfelt stories. Part memoir/part self-help book, this one doesn't stand out ...

    People are their most beautiful when they are laughing, crying, dancing, playing, telling the truth, and being chased in a fun way. Oh Amy, you are truly beautiful. I just adore her on Parks and Rec - there's just a certain something about such a positive, upbeat comedy that comp...

    AMEN. ...

    Not knowing 'at all' what to expect, I listened to the audiobook on my overdrive app from the library. I fall asleep too early to watch SNL. I didn't watch the Emmy's. I never heard of Parks and Recreation. The only movie I saw Amy in was "Baby Mama". ... But I did see The Go...

    This was just okay for me, but that might be because I listened to Yes Please directly after Leah Remini's Troublemaker: Surviving Hollywood and Scientology, which in hindsight was probably a disservice. But whatever, this wasn't as funny as I was hoping it'd be, and I think I laughed ...

    This is not a comedy book. I mean, it's funny. Amy Poehler can't write a book and not be funny, because she's Amy fuckin' Poehler. But (and this is not the first time I'm going to compare the two memoirs) where Tina Fey's Bossypants contained humorous essays written specifically fo...

    Disappointing! Poehler complains about how hard it is to write a book many times, which is annoying, but I can't see how it would be hard to write a bad book. It's so obvious she was forced to do this, it's written from a bad place and I felt that bad place the whole time I was reading...

    Another fun read from the subgenre I like to call, "Memoirs written by women who worked on SNL". It's overall a fun and humourous read. It may have needed some editing and could have lost a couple chapters but as a whole it's a memorable memoir. It's fun and that's all it needed to be....

    4 Stars "It takes years as a woman to unlearn what you have been taught to be sorry for. It takes years to find your voice and seize your real estate." I don't watch a lot of TV. Now before you roll your eyes, I'm not trying to earn hipster cred here before waxing poetic a...

    4.5 Stars I listened to this on audiobook, as I now will choose to do when reading memoirs or autobiographies, and this was a VERY enjoyable experience. The audiobook I got from my library is narrated by Amy, and it was such a joy to listen to her deliver these jokes and discuss her...

    Disappointing! Poehler complains about how hard it is to write a book many times, which is annoying, but I can't see how it would be hard to write a bad book. It's so obvious she was forced to do this, it's written from a bad place and I felt that bad place the whole time I was reading...

    Another fun read from the subgenre I like to call, "Memoirs written by women who worked on SNL". It's overall a fun and humourous read. It may have needed some editing and could have lost a couple chapters but as a whole it's a memorable memoir. It's fun and that's all it needed to be....

    I am probably not the only one who has a girl crush on Amy Poehler. She's funny, she's smart, she's sassy and she does good work. But I hope my future best friend will forgive me when I say her book is less than great. "Yes Please" is a fun little memoir about Amy's childhood, how ...

    I LOVE Amy Poehler. This book just highlighted my favorite parts about her and also showed me some of her faults, which she owned up to. She just seems like such a genuine and down to earth person and I love it. I also highly recommend the audio book! I read the first half with the ph...

    Yes Please I admit that it took me by surprise how much I enjoyed Amy Poehler's Yes Please. Perhaps because she is an performer and an entertainer, audio was the perfect medium to deliver her funny and heartfelt stories. Part memoir/part self-help book, this one doesn't stand out ...

    People are their most beautiful when they are laughing, crying, dancing, playing, telling the truth, and being chased in a fun way. Oh Amy, you are truly beautiful. I just adore her on Parks and Rec - there's just a certain something about such a positive, upbeat comedy that comp...

    AMEN. ...

    This is not a comedy book. I mean, it's funny. Amy Poehler can't write a book and not be funny, because she's Amy fuckin' Poehler. But (and this is not the first time I'm going to compare the two memoirs) where Tina Fey's Bossypants contained humorous essays written specifically fo...

    Fantastic! Amy Poehler is so funny and relatable and inspirational. I especially loved learning about how she got into comedy and improv (as that's something I'm interested in myself) and just her general attitude and perspective is so refreshing and positive. I actually listened to th...

    YES REALLY. I almost gave this two stars, except it includes George Clooney and that would be a crime. This book is fine. It didn't charm me. It actually took me about three or four days to read 288 pages, which is funny because a lot of those pages don't include any actual wor...

    It breaks my heart to give this book one star. I love Amy Poehler. In fact I love every member of that early two-thousands (the decade, not the century) female Saturday Night Live cast ensemble: Poehler, Fey, Rudolph, Dratch. I often mentally include Kristen Wiig in the mix,...

    No, thank you. I was supposed to love this book and as I always do when I find myself super disappointed, I looked back through other reviews to see if I was alone. I don't think I am alone, but no one is expressing my disappointment quite how I need it to be expressed, so I get to ...
