Book Review :: Yes Please by Amy Poehler


Before I started this book, Amy Poehler was just Regina's Mum in Mean Girls and Lesley Knope in Parks and Recreation. I'd seen her book recommended on several lists and was mid Parks and Recreation binge, so decided to see what the fuss was about. Now I love her.

Not even a quarter of the way through the book I was already recommending it to friends. I laughed out loud several times, admired her honesty and at times felt myself being inspired by her words of wisdom. I really wasn't expecting a book by Amy Poehler to be filled with advice and more of a 'self-help' style book than the comedic autobiography I expected, but I suppose I should have anticipated that considering it was on so many 'Quarter Life Crisis' reading lists.

One of my favourite comments was "You can't be everything, so find out what you're best at and have that as your currency". I find it hard at times being a very average but very competitive person and should probably live by this a bit more. I just need to find out what I'm best at first!

After reading the reviews on Goodreads, it appears not everyone loved Amy's book as much as I did and it's very much a Marmite read. Although the audiobook does seem to be a good shout. Take a trip to the library and loan out this book, if you're in your twenties, a fan of Amy and just want an easy read, I'd say you'll like it.

P.S. If anyone knows how she makes her fringe stay so perfect, please do let me know.

  2. Visited there last weekend with a group of friends, and had all the fun we could handle. I really like the ambiance at these San Francisco venues. There's a decent draft beer selection at a reasonable price and the bartenders are good at what they do.
