Amy Poehler – Yes Please

Amy Poehler – Yes Please

Parks and Recreation is one of my favorite comedy shows, and Poehler was one of its stars and main creative forces. This is her autobiography, and she apparently has quite a bit of the show’s Leslie Knope character in her. There is plenty of humor in here, some good stories from throughout her career, some good life advice, and even the occasional touching moment. Granted this is probably one of the book’s purposes, but unlike some autobiographies, she seems quite likable. Rather than a linear narrative, it is more a series of frenetic vignettes bouncing around from place, which rather suits Poehler’s personality. If you’re a fan, you’ll get a kick out of this. If not, then not.
