Publisher Description

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

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 MamaBlades 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.

Quotes

  • “Listeners know they’re getting something special, unique, and a bit absurd right from the start when Poehler claims to be narrating from her own personal audio booth, built at the base of Mount Rushmore. Poehler sounds consistently warm, funny, and genuine, and it’s only a matter of time before she’ll have you laughing out loud. When she’s joined in ‘her’ studio by Seth Meyers and Mike Schur to reminisce about Saturday Night Live and Parks and Recreation” it sounds like we’re overhearing candid conversations between friends. Cameos from Carol Burnett, Kathleen Turner, Patrick Stewart, and even Amy’s parents add even more flavor. What a treat. Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.”

    - AudioFile
  • “The Parks and Recreation actor’s memoir is even more charming when read by her, with the addition of famous friends and her parents.”

    - Guardian (London)
  • “Shows off the Parks and Recreation actress’ wit—as well as her wisdom.”

    - Entertainment Weekly
