To be honest, I don’t know much about her since I haven’t watched much of her work besides SNL. But, I knew she was funny so I had very high expectations for this book, and thankfully it didn’t let me down!
This book was funny throughout, without being just a bunch of corny one liners. She managed to be sweet, down to earth, and honest the whole time. I have to say I have completely fallen for Amy since reading this book. I thought the use of pictures and giant quotes really added a nice extra treat. Even though this is few hundred pages, I finished it only two days! I couldn’t put it down! It contains a lot of advice, as well as lots of stories of her growing up and her early comedy days. I was surprised to find this had some bad reviews on goodreads. I say Yes Please to more Amy Poehler!
My only complaint is superficial and that this book weighs a TON!! Seriously, I hated carrying this around. I might as well have been lugging around a brick or two. To be fair, this is probably due to the high quality paper they decided to use, but still I could have handled a lower quality and lighter book.
