GREAT NEWS. AMY POEHLER IS HERE FOR YOU.
Yes Please is her collection of ideas, stories, and questions about the stuff of life, big and small, funny and sad. Now, Yes Please can be yours.
Praise For Yes Please…
— Los Angeles Times
“Poehler is very funny, so the jokes are very good…Poehler is very wise, so her advice is on point.”
“Delightful...Poehler is frank and funny throughout [Yes Please], as is her nature, but her writing unearths a wise narrator who’s seen some of the worst of life and come out the other side unscathed…Can we get more from Amy Poehler? Yes, seriously, please.”
“Demonstrates the skill of this excellent comic actress, a funny woman who roots hilarity in specifics.”
— Washington Post
“Required reading for all young women.”
— Huffington Post
“[Yes Please] is honest words of wisdom within a joyous story structure.”
— Philadelphia Inquirer
“Yes Please veers between reminiscing and philosophizing. Poehler had developed some principles over the years and shares them in usually funny fashion.”
— Chicago Sun-Times
“Yes Please isn’t a scan of the comedic brain so much as it is something far better---the full exposure of Poehler’s funny and very magnanimous heart.
“Yes Please delivers what it should: life lessons and vicarious thrills…the book is largely a portrait of confidence. Reading it, some of it rubs off on us.”
— New Yorker
