Editorial Reviews

Review

Yes Please is a great story…because it is self-damning and hopeful at the same time.” (Los Angeles Times)

“Pure charm” (People)

“Poehler is very funny, so the jokes are very good…Poehler is very wise, so her advice is on point.” (Slate)

“Delightful...Poehler is frank and funny throughout [Yes Please], as is her nature, but her writing unearths a wise narrator who’s seen some of the worst of life and come out the other side unscathed…Can we get more from Amy Poehler? Yes, seriously, please.” (Newsweek)

“Demonstrates the skill of this excellent comic actress, a funny woman who roots hilarity in specifics.” (Washington Post)

“Required reading for all young women.” (Huffington Post)

“[Yes Please] is honest words of wisdom within a joyous story structure.” (Philadelphia Inquirer)

Yes Please veers between reminiscing and philosophizing. Poehler had developed some principles over the years and shares them in usually funny fashion.” (Chicago Sun-Times)

Yes Please isn’t a scan of the comedic brain so much as it is something far better---the full exposure of Poehler’s funny and very magnanimous heart. (Elle)

Yes Please delivers what it should: life lessons and vicarious thrills…the book is largely a portrait of confidence. Reading it, some of it rubs off on us.” (New Yorker)

From the Back Cover

Do you want to get to know the woman we first came to love on Comedy Central's Upright Citizens Brigade? Do you want to spend some time with the lady who made you howl with laughter on Saturday Night Live, and in movies like Baby MamaBlades of Glory, and They Came Together? Do you find yourself daydreaming about hanging out with the actor behind the brilliant Leslie Knope on Parks and Recreation? Did you wish you were in the audience at the last two Golden Globes ceremonies, so you could bask in the hilarity of Amy's one-liners?

If your answer to these questions is "Yes Please!" then you are in luck. In her first book, one of our most beloved funny folk delivers a smart, pointed, and ultimately inspirational read. Full of the comedic skill that makes us all love Amy, Yes Please is a rich and varied collection of stories, lists, poetry (Plastic Surgery Haiku, to be specific), photographs, mantras and advice. With chapters like "Treat Your Career Like a Bad Boyfriend," "Plain Girl Versus the Demon" and "The Robots Will Kill Us All" Yes Please will make you think as much as it will make you laugh. Honest, personal, real, and righteous, Yes Please is full of words to live by.
