She's been Hillary Clinton to Tiny Fey's Sarah Palin; she was the co-anchor (with Fey and later Seth Meyers) of Saturday Night Live's Weekend Update until the week she delivered her first child; she's won a Golden Globe, a Peabody Award, a Gracie Award, and a slew of Primetime and Daytime Emmy nominations; and from 2009 until 2015, she was the beloved star of the NBC television comedy series Parks and Recreation. Amy Poehler is a very funny lady, and in this book she makes you feel like you're her new best friend. This is deliberate; she really, really wants you to like her, and to buy her book. Poehler finds hilarity in every stage of her life thus far, as well as deeper musings on death, motherhood, time travel, mushrooms, haiku, and having the courage to be what you are. She also hopes this book will get her invited onto her hero Judge Judy's yacht, Triumphant Lady. 329. Bookseller Inventory #

A Globe Best Book of the Year
A smart, pointed, and ultimately inspirational read from one of our most beloved funny folk.
In a perfect world . . .
We’d get to hang out with Amy Poehler, watching dumb movies, listening to music, and swapping tales about our coworkers and difficult childhoods. Unfortunately, between her Golden Globe–winning role on Parks and Recreation, work as a producer and director, place as one of the most beloved SNL alumni and cofounder of the Upright Citizens Brigade, involvement with the website Smart Girls at the Party, frequent turns as acting double for Meryl Streep, and her other gig as the mom of two young sons, she’s not available for movie night. Luckily, we have the next best thing: Yes Please, Amy Poehler’s hilarious and candid book.
A collection of stories, thoughts, ideas, lists, and haiku, Yes Please took the world by storm, going straight to #1 on the New York Times bestseller list and dominating lists on both sides of the border for over 17 weeks—including multiple weeks at #1 on the Globe and Mail bestseller list. Widely acclaimed as one of the best books of the year, Yes Please cemented Amy Poehler’s place in our hearts as one of our most beloved entertainers, and in our minds as a sharp, insightful, and provocative writer. Oh, and did we mention hilarious? Truly hilarious.
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.
From the Back Cover:
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.
