My Review:

Just like Neil Patrick Harris, Amy Poehler is one of my favourite human beings! There's nothing she's done that I haven't loved. I always loved her on Saturday Night Live, loved her movies and of course, loved Parks and Recreation. She's one of the Queens of Comedy, and she's earned that title. Everything she does is fantastic and this book is no exception!

I bought the audiobook for this because I love the idea of having my favourite celebrities read their story to me. I would highly recommend this, it's the best. Amy tackles a lot in this book; stories of her life growing up, the start of her career and how she got to be where she is now, stories from SNL and Parks and Rec, her love for Tina Fey and others, etc. She also has guest speakers with her in her audiobook which was a nice addition. It's really worth it to buy both the book and audiobook!

What I love is Amy writes a really real book! You expect it to be funny because it's Amy Poehler and while there are very funny moments, Amy mixes her comedy with real moments and important messages. It's really inspiring and real, and I appreciated that. I appreciated this book! It was so well written, and well done to which I'm not surprised, it's Amy Poehler! She's amazing in everything she does. I will forever be a fan of hers, and this book just made me love her even more.

Have you read Yes Please? What are your thoughts?
