Super short book review: Amy Poehler’s “Yes Please”

June 1, 2015

Yes Please by Amy Poehler

You know how sometimes you just keep passing on a specific book, even though it’s on your list and you definitely do want to read it eventually? You finish one book and then, when deciding what’s next, you look at it and just say ehh maybe later?

Yeah. Well. Why I did that with Yes please for 6+ months I have no idea. I MEAN HONESTLY.

This book is lovely, you guys.

It’s funny. Obviously. But in the smart dry humor kind of way that you almost miss if you’re not paying attention. And dude this is one smart chica. Holy buckets can she write.

Funny, check. Smart, check. Well written, check.

Also: inspiring. YUP.

Amy drops these ridiculous little nuggets of wisdom about career and life and love and parenthood amongst her short and snappy lines. I would have underlined something on every page if I hadn’t read this on loan from my e-library.

End of book result: She showed pieces of her real self. Dirty, messy, and lovely. And now I will support her work forever and ever amen.

Yay for books,

Yes Please by Amy Poehler
