Review: Yes Please by Amy Poehler

Yes Please - Amy Poehler


Amy Poehler is hosting a dinner party and you're invited! Welcome to the audiobook edition of Amy Poehler's Yes Please. The guest list is star-studded with vocal appearances from Carol Burnett, Seth Meyers, Michael Schur, Patrick Stewart, Kathleen Turner, and even Amy's parents—Yes Please is the ultimate audiobook extravaganza.

Also included? A one night only live performance at Poehler's Upright Citizens Brigade Theater. Hear Amy read a chapter live in front of a young and attractive Los Angeles audience.

While listening to Yes Please, you'll laugh, you'll cry, and you'll become convinced that your phone is trying to kill you. Don't miss this collection of stories, thoughts, ideas, lists, and haikus from the mind of one of our most beloved entertainers. Offering Amy's thoughts on everything from her "too safe" childhood outside of Boston to her early days in New York City, her ideas about Hollywood and "the biz," the demon that looks back at all of us in the mirror, and her joy at being told she has a "face for wigs"—Yes Please is chock-full of words, and wisdom, to live by.


My opinion: 

So now I can say I've listened to an audiobook! I've never tried an audiobook before, but I got a new job and I have to walk a lot, so I decided to listen to an audiobook while I was walking instead of listening to music all the time. Let's just say it was a great experience! I felt I made a good decision to start with this book, because I didn't have to remember an hard storyline: I felt I was listening to podcasts instead of a book! That was so awesome and that experience was also awesome because of Amy Poehler. I haven't heard of her before this book came out (sorry, I don't live in America and I don't know everything that is/was going on there) so it was a great way to get to know her. She's so funny! I also wish I also had her physical book, so I could see pictures, but the audiobook was also great on itself. 


If you have other great (non-fiction) audiobook recommendations: please let me know! I can always you some new ones (especially now, haha).
