Review: Yes Please by Amy Poehler

Title: Yes Please

Author: Amy Poehler

Page Count: 329 (hardcover) read via audiobook

Publishing: Harper Collins

My Rating: 4/5 Stars

Synopsis: "In Amy Poehler’s highly anticipated first book, Yes Please, she offers up a big juicy stew of personal stories, funny bits on sex and love and friendship and parenthood and real life advice (some useful, some not so much), like when to be funny and when to be serious. Powered by Amy’s charming and hilarious, biting yet wise voice, Yes Please is a book full of words to live by." -Goodreads

Going into this I wasn't the biggest fan of Amy Poehler because I could only remember seeing her in Mean Girls and Baby Mama. The more I listened to the hype surrounding her memoir the more interested I became. I knew that I wanted to listen to the audiobook because of all the extra voices that were incorporated into it.

I finally got the audiobook listened to it within one night and the next evening. There were parts that really didn't interest me and there were parts that I wanted to listen to multiple times. I felt like I connected to Amy Poehler on an emotional level while listening to this audiobook. I felt like she made me feel like I was not just someone listening to her talk about her life but I was a friend who she was telling all her greatest adventures to.

I love how she got her friends and family to speak about their parts in her story. I know this only added to the unique qualities of this story. She gave hilarious tips and advice on life and how to live it to the fullest. I enjoyed this book, and even though I didn't start as a huge fan of Amy Poehler, I am excited to watch more things she stars in.


  1. I have been debating whether or not to read this for awhile because I have heard great things about the book, but I don't really like her. I might just have to listen to it on audiobook.

    1. The audiobook really shows her personality. I don't think you'd really enjoy it if you didn't like her
