Book Review - "Yes Please" by Amy Poehler (#6 - 2016)


Yes Please by Amy Poehler

I like Amy Poehler so I decided to pick this up.  Well, if you are looking for lots of lol's then this is not the book for you, it's more a "skim the surface" memoir.  Does that make sense?  Not that that is a bad thing.  I enjoyed it much more than Mindy Kaling's Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me  but like Kaling's book, I never feel like I got to know the real Amy.  She gives some good advice, has lots of parenting stories, stuff about Upright Citizens Brigade (too much about that, I was never much of a fan) and co-workers.  I just never felt I got a firm idea as to how she got to where she is and she came off at times as a bit brooding.  That being said, it's worth a read (especially if you are a fan), the chapter about "time travel" was my favorite, it is a very similar way to how I think about stuff like that which was nice.  I still think Tiny Fey's Bossypants is much better.  Joan Rivers books being the gold standard for me, she combines inspiration, realness and funny in the perfect way (Enter Talking and Still Talking being my favorites).
