a fan of SNL and funny ladies in general I couldn’t wait to get my
hands on Amy Poehler’s book. While reading this book in bed I literally kept laughing out loud, and I couldn’t stop. The more I read the more I laughed. 

Full of Insightful Life Lessons

I’m not sure if it’s because Amy
Poehler has played so many different characters or because she sucks at
sleeping, but you’d think she has lived a million lives. She’s certainly got
her head screwed on so right that she’s a fountain of advice and wisdom. I
really enjoyed reading her encouraging words. 

Makes No Apologies Except for
When She Makes an Apology

Amy makes no apologies for the
drugs she’s done, or felt she needed during child birth (I too agree, we need
to employ a “good for her, but not for me” mentality). Poehler also
opens the doors wide open about her sex life and the people she’s slept with –
she’s all about no regrets and I love it (except for that non-apologizing-
apologizing part).  

Reminds Us Its Okay To Ask
For Help 

Cue Amy Poehler’s wife/nanny. I
love that Amy openly admits and embraces her nanny’s role in helping to raise
her children. A lot of times nannies are a parents’ best kept secret, but Amy
(yeah we’re on a first name basis now) fully acknowledges her and credits her in
a way that’s very refreshing. 


With childhood photos to poems
she wrote about death at 13 there’s so much more to this book than words on a
page (although they are pretty funny words). 

Living Proof of What Happens
When You Are In Your Element

Poehler found the right career
path, there’s no question. She’s amazing at what she does, and you can tell she
really enjoys it. I love this because it reminds us to keep pushing, and to go after our dreams (no matter how big or wild they may seem).

On a scale of to read or not
to read… I would say read!

Yes Please highlighted my favorite parts
about Amy Poehler and I enjoyed learning a little bit more about her and her
life. Yes Please also showed me some
of her “faults” which she bravely owned up to, and I respect that.
Amy seems like a truly genuine, down to earth person and I love her even more
after completing this book. 

Although this book has been
getting mixed reviews, I’m here to tell you it is quite literally laugh out
loud funny, and wonderfully insightful! Amy Poehler is hilarious (obviously),
but she’s also wildly honest and real, and that’s always something I admire in
a person!

Yes Please is available online, but you
can get your hands on it today by picking it up at Indigo Spirit
at Sunnyside Mall! Also note that
I removed the jacket cover (I always do this, and it greatly annoys people). The
actual cover looks like this; http://amysaysyesplease.com/

Hope you found this review helpful. What books are you reading? I need a new one to dive into!
