Furthermore, with regards to name dropping and discussions of a privileged lifestyle-- you're reading a celebrity memoir? She's discussing her daily life, and as she's a celebrity, she has celebrity friends and a more affluent way of living. I don't know what you were expecting, frankly. "Please write me stories about your life, but don't tell me about your friends or your lifestyle, just tell me the painful things like your divorce!" That doesn't make any sense.
I loved this memoir. It was full of cute anecdotes, and funny little things. I appreciated it, and I appreciate Poehler.
I read Tina Fey's book a couple years ago and it was laugh out loud funny, but she said such a lousy thing about adult children of alcoholics that I never cared to watch her perform again. Amy Poehler makes an unnecessary comment about old people not being able to cut their toe nails. You always risk alienating someone when you are in comedy. I wouldn't want her to stop trying to be funny, though. You have to take that risk.
I recommend this book as a pleasant read. If you are younger than Amy, you might appreciate the wisdom she shares.
Ever since I wanted my first SNL episode and saw Tina Fey and Amy Poehler - well, uh.. I've been in love. If one day these two just walk into my life super randomly and want to hang out or be best friends five-ever (because that's obviously longer than forever -duh!). Well, I'd be one hundred percent down for allllll of that awesomeness. However, my dreams will forever remain unreachable because they will probably never want to hang out with a 26 year old.
Back to this book - it was amazing. Yeah, it really was and I probably say that a whole bunch of times when I'm reading books or whatever. It's true - it always is. I love books and Yes Please had me constantly laughing/crying at work. No, it wasn't to my black right eye or that my face was in pain. Nope, this book was just hilarious to me.
I've also come to realize that I haven't watched every show/movie that Amy has been in. Yes to SNL, baby momma, mean girls.. and I can't tell if there have been more but I will probably need to dive into her other stuff. I need more of Amy in my life.
Before I end this review, I really liked hearing about her crazy life. Finding it pretty relatable even though I haven't gone through like half of that stuff. Overall, a great book and I highly recommend the audio version.

Amy is even more like Leslie Knope than I expected and that makes me really happy.
