Présentation de l'éditeur

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 Mama, Blades 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.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 More Amy Poehler books? Yes Please! 29 octobre 2014
Par book_thief - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
I will first admit that I'm a sucker for these type of books. I've read Mindy Khaling's, Tina Fey's, Lena Dunham's and even Ellen Degeneres'. I'll also admit that I'm a 24 year old girl, and that my opinions are probably biased based on my age and the (lack of) life experiences I've had so far.

First of all, if you're considering picking up the book versus buying the Kindle version, I would strongly recommend the hard copy. The book is formatted with glossy pages full of colored pictures and chapter titles that I really love (attached some photos and a video). It makes the reading experience a whole lot more exciting. Every time I turned upon a new chapter, I would have to stop for a moment and smile to myself.

That being said, I was excited about Amy's book because I've an avid fan of Parks and Rec, and her previous work on SNL. To me, she just seemed like a really warm person and people only have compliments when talking about her. I couldn't wait to read a book in her voice and learn more about her past.

Some Youtube clips that I just had to dig up after reading about them from Amy's perspective:
SNL Sarah Palin rap: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cG1g5qvgtSg
2011 Emmy's bit: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RyFyJqx1lpc
2009 Emmy's bit: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-jSk8yzlm94

I'm glad to say I was not disappointed at all. Compared to some of the other authors that I have mentioned, Amy does have more stories and chapters on experiences that I couldn't quite relate to (pregnancy, divorce, raising kids), but by reading about those stories I felt a little more prepared for the future. So despite the fact that much of the book were not relatable, I like how she told those stories so outsiders like me could be more familiar with what other people are going through at times like those.

Other than that, the whole book is written in the typical witty/sarcastic tone that most books like this are written in. And I love it. She talks a bit about her past, how she got into acting and improv, stories about all her famous friends, the journey with Parks and Rec and just gives some general life anecdotes. Seth Meyers also makes a guest appearance and writes a short chapter!

I finished the book within a day because it was a speedy read and I never wanted to stop. I suspect I'll be reading it again in a couple months.

All in all, I can't be more happy that Amy Poehler finally decided to publish her own book. Here's to hoping there will be more!

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Wise But Not LOL 10 novembre 2014
Par Ria Darling - Publié sur Amazon.com

I really enjoy Amy Poehler and I was so excited to get this book-I'd read interviews with her about the book, like in Entertainment Weekly, and couldn't wait because it sounded funny and honest. Know how sometimes you can't wait to see a movie, then you see it and realize the best bits were everything you saw in the trailer? That's sort of how I feel about this book.
It's well written (and, if you get the paper version the publisher put a lot into the paper quality and photos etc.) and there are some fun lines, but it's more wise than LOL.
Also, I felt kind of old to be reading it-I'm roughly her age and it felt like she intended some of the wisdom for younger women in earlier stages of life, and that was really disappointing. The chapters on SNL and Parks and Rec were good but not really detailed for as long as she was on both shows-but there are constant references to the Upright Citizens Brigade. Lots of talk about motherhood and her sons and orphans in Haiti. Oh and a chapter on the pros and cons of drugs (which seems to offend some people who feel pros come out ahead). If you're looking for gossip, there's not much but she does name drop.
I guess I expected this to be more like Bossypants by Tina Fey or Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? by Mindy Kaling, both of which I loved. Those books made me laugh and feel like Kaling was my wise, never judging bff, whereas Poehler, I have to say it, is a little preachy.
I still love Amy Poehler and I think she's a brilliant performer, but this book wasn't 'that' funny but it's full of wisdom. I gave Kaling's book to my friends but I'd give this as a high school or college graduation gift.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 ENJOYABLE, FUN AND FASCINATING! 28 octobre 2014
Par Avid Reviewer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
I don't know if one can label this book as a memoir. Yes Please by Amy Poehler (or can she be called the author as it has chapters written by others as well?) is a mishmash of advice, humor, essays, poems, and of course, memoir. Yes please, it is a delightful book to read, brutally honest, sincere, witty and at times harsh on herself. I never thought it would be such a pleasure to read as I have a low opinion of celebrities dishing out advice but Amy Poehler's Yes Please turns out to be quite perceptive and refreshingly different.

What is Yes Please all about? A lot! It is a memoir with a difference, incorporating a lot of other things. Amy writes about her two sons Archie Arnett, 5, and Abel Arnett, 4. And mind you, the book is also dedicated to them. Amy has been married to Will Arnett for nine years and the two went their separate ways in September 2012. Both Arnett and Poehler have kept quiet about it. In Yes Please, Poehler describes it as "too personal" and "too sad." She also writes about her parents, how she grew up in the Boston suburb of Burlington, about her school and about her time at Boston College. She writes not only about the good things that had happened to her but also her regrets as well. Poehler also writes about her experiences with cocaine, ecstasy and marijuana, which is why I feel the book is brutally honest. And, of course, there's plenty of tales from Saturday Night Live.

What I really like about Yes Please by Amy Poehler is its intense honesty without giving much juice to the gossip mill. She is brutal on herself, and doesn't paint rosy pictures where there were none. Her memoir reminded me of Mike Tyson's Undisputed Truth: My Autobiography which was also raw and honest. Though I was not much of an admirer earlier, I have learned to understand what Amy Poehler has been going through and appreciate the sheer honesty with which she has written about her life and the things she love. Easily enjoyable, Yes Please is an interesting and fascinating read. Yes please!

1.0 étoiles sur 5 This was such a disappointment. I have always loved Amy Poehler 18 février 2015
Par Jeralyn A. Seiling - Publié sur Amazon.com

This was such a disappointment. I have always loved Amy Poehler, but now I like her a lot less. She comes across as full of herself. The first one-quarter of the book is about how tough it is to write a book. The rest of the book is relentless name dropping. (We get it; you and Seth Myers are friends.) I didn't even smile once, let alone laugh. It seems like someone convinced her she could make a ton of money with a book like Tiny Fey's (which was hilarious), but AP is NOT a good writer. It is a disconnected collection of unfunny memories. The only thing I learned about AP is that she knows a lot of famous people and fans seriously irritate her. Don't bother with this disaster of a book.

I really enjoy Amy Poehler - she's an incredible, strong woman - and I love that. But I had to force myself through this book. It was very much so a re-counting of her rise to success, but it didn't "give" the reader much extra. I was inspired, I didn't feel like she was sharing anything too interesting with me. And unfortunately, I think Amy's humor doesn't translate to the written word all that successfully. Performances? Fantastic. Reading her book? Eh. I respect her, but I would skip the book.
