    The Self Help Book You Didn't Know You Needed

    This is the most unexpected self help book I've ever accidentally stumbled into. I began reading Yes Please expecting a comedy book about show business but left having read a blunt but charming memoir about growing up, staying positive and making the most out of life. It was definitely a funny book, but it isn't a book about comedy. It's a heart warming, stream of consciousness which feels more like a clever conversation between friends than it does reading a celebrity's autobiography.

    Amy Poehler: Actress, Comedian and an

    ~Artistic Advice: I loved how Amy Poehler was honest about how people get jobs in the Artistic Industry, no one wants to hear about how artists (regardless of whether they are actors or writers) worked a day job (or two), that it took years for them to establish themselves, even longer to set up connections. People want it the easy way and they want it now and I get that. I sometimes feel that way myself. I loved her chapter on “Treat your Career like a Bad Boyfriend” ~Good Ethos: One of the main themes in Yes Please was how Amy Poehler went to the extra effort to help bring women up (regardless of their various roles in her life), I especially loved her chapter dedicated to Tina Fey (it’s my favourite chapter). ~Contributions: I liked how different people contributed to the novel. I also like the photos of various people involved in Amy Poehler’s life such as the one that compares Amy Poehler’s mother holding a new-born Amy, side by side with a picture of Amy holding her new-born son Archer. The chapter about how Amy Poehler went to Haiti to aid with a charity group was heart-breaking sad and sweet at the same time. Overall, a great read from an inspiring woman, who manages to make the ordinary hilarious and the painful moments bearable, all the while remembering it could be so much worse.
