Excellent book!

The reading of this book is fantastic. It's great to hear Amy read her own book. It's full of anecdotes that are funny and touching, and that will make you feel good if you're not in the best mood, or keep you happy if you already are. I strongly recommend it!

Loved it!!

I love Amy, she's just so honest. This book was a welcoming friend on my long commute to school for a few weeks. I learned things I had never even guessed Amy did, which was pretty awesome haha.

Loved it!

For someone who hates writing books, Amy Poehler did an amazing job. I found her very relatable and funny! The addition of friends, family and celebs as part of the audio book was a great touch.
If she wrote another book ... I would read it in a heart beat!

Glorious!

Thank you thank you Amy Poehler! You are a hilarious goddess and I thoroughly enjoyed listening to you read your book. There was some sage wisdom in there. Your humour has helped me through some tough times and Parks + Rec is my fav show ever.

Big hugs and love!

I'm so glad that's over

I am the type of person who has a hard time not finishing something once I've started it, and to be honest I kept expecting it would get better based on the other reviews.... but this was nothing more than a lame collection of name-droppy stories that were neither that funny nor that deep. The addition of other celebs and her parents to read parts and provide commentary was just unnecessary and fell flat. She didn't have enough of her own material to fill a book? And the final chapter, read "live" (or was that the world's worst laugh track) was just painful. Sorry Amy, I really expected better!

If you love Amy Poehler, you wont be disapointed. It's light, it's deap, it's personal, it's profouns and I think it's perfect. A great book for audible ! Read by Amy herself, what more could I ask for, beside marrying her :)

Gushy and Insecure

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

It never quite delivered the way I wanted it to. I'd always heard of and understood Amy Poehler as a no-bullshit kind of lady, but she spends so much time in this book talking about how hard it was to write a book and how talented all her famous friends are, you just get the sense she's not saying any of the interesting things she could be saying if she had more confidence.

Has Yes Please turned you off from other books in this genre?

I loved Bossypants and Girl Walks Into A Bar, and I was expecting a bit more wisdom about life to come through the comedy, like with the other books. There were moments of that, but I just felt like there was so much second guessing and repetition that it never got to a place where you really went there with her. Plus she kept saying "ambivalence" when she meant "indifference" and I wondered what her editors were doing all day.

Which character – as performed by the narrators – was your favorite?

I really liked hearing Amy's mom read her life advice and chapters. They were really funny and I thought an interesting opportunity for looking at how different life is now for women and especially mothers. Amy didn't really pick up the thread, though. She also had all these people "in the booth" with her, and it seemed like another ploy to distract people from hearing what she had to say. But she mostly just got them to read chapter titles. Hearing Patrick Stewart read her haikus was pretty awesome, though.

Any additional comments?

I would like to see Amy write a second book where she cares less whether or not people like what she has to say. It's ironic because her extended message is to say whatever you want, do whatever you want, and be whoever you want, and she just doesn't seem to be taking her own advice. She keeps deflecting onto other people as if to avoid having to say anything she feels. I get the sense a bit of distance from her divorce and young children will put her back into her confidence and allow her to write from a more powerful place. She really was her own worst enemy in writing the book I think. I still think she's incredibly smart and funny and talented. I just wish she'd get out of her own way.

A lot of time spent saying how hard it is to write

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

Not really. She had a few interesting tidbits but it really seemed like she didn't like writing this book.

Would you ever listen to anything by Amy Poehler again?

Not likely.

What three words best describe the narrators’s voice?

True to form.

Was Yes Please worth the listening time?

It was okay but I cannot recommend it.

Any additional comments?

I do like when the author is also the narrator.

In dire need of an editor

Amy mixes tales of her childhood, adolescence, hard work and dedication to her craft with present day reflections on "making it", motherhood and relationships.
Unfortunately, it felt like the book went from manuscript to print without being edited. I appreciate Amy's formidable improvisation chops, I just don't want to spend time with a half baked book.

Not terribly entertaining.

I wouldn't really recommend this book. I didn't find it terribly entertaining. Occasionally mildly amusing but basically just a long progression of events that led through the steps of Amy's career.

great if you are a super fan

I didn't realize you had to be a huge fan of Amy in order to read this. As it's basically a book about her life which she claims it not to be in the beginning.
I'm not a massive fan of Amy, more just a fan of funny women writing books in general. I didn't really take anything from this book apart from now knowing how her career started and how much she loves her kids. it's literally...all about her . nothing else.

Loved this!

I loved how so many other voices added layers and depth to this telling of Amy's story. As an amateur comic, I found the story engaging, entertaining, and inspiring.

Nailed it

I really enjoyed listening to this book. Amy's humor has always drawn me to her movies and some insight into who she is really makes me appreciate her as the hardworking artist that she is. Entertaining and well read. I could listen to it again.

Excellent memoir!

Loved hearing Amy's story in her own voice. Also fabulous to hear wonderful celebrity special guests in here! All used to great effect! I'm happy she wrote a book so that I know more about who she is and where she came from. I highly recommend this book if you're a fan of comedy, of autobiographies, of UCB, of SNL and of Parks and Recreation.

Keeps Getting Better

What did you love best about Yes Please?

I expected it to be a silly book with funny stories but it was much more than that. It was also full of professional insight that should make sense to everyone. Her honesty is refreshing and genuine.

What other book might you compare Yes Please to and why?

This was my first audiobook. I have yet to find another one I like as much as this one.
