Yes, Please by Amy Poehler
In the tradition of Tina Fey’s Bossypants or (going back farther) Steve Martin’s Born Standing Up, this is Amy Poehler’s memoir/comedy/advice/biography book. Whether or not you like it will depend quite a bit on what you think of Poehler. I think she’s a very talented comedian, but sometimes a little acerbic. I would say the same of this book. Her personality comes through. There are some funny parts, but it is not laugh-out-loud funny. That said, the stronger parts of the book are when she gives advice (much of it is directed at young women—and while not applicable to me, I thought some of it was pretty wise) and when she gives some behind-the-scenes peeks into SNL and Parks and Recreation. Overall, I give this book kind of a shrug.
