    This is the BEST audiobook I've ever listened to! Even if you've read the book, you have to listen to this. It is so well done. I've listened to at least one hundred audiobooks and my bar is set high for narrators. The wrong one can ruin a book and the right one elevates it. She's hilarious and I want to be her friend even more after listening to this. She's so honest and funny. I love how she has her friends and family in this. It was very well done. Extremely entertaining. Please do yourself a favor and listen to this now!

    This book is hilarious, inspiring and uplifting. The best part is that Amy Poehler narrates, which makes you feel like she's your new best friend, just sitting next you on your road trip, telling you all her stories.

    Dire. What was the point of this book? Was it satirical and I missed it? Has about seven endings, none of which came soon enough.

  • Dawn S.

    I loved it! She really told a beautiful story of her life I enjoyed it it was funny It was insightful. She included a lot of things that most celebrities probably would not admit. I love that she was honest and real and the language, all the naughty language, I loved it. I didn't want it to end.

    Nice book awesome history

  • Stacey C.

    Amy is funny, poignant, honest, and thoughtful provoking. She was able to make me laugh out loud, cry, feel joy and sorrow all with the span of a few words. I loved this book and hope she writes (and reads) more. 100% pure enjoyment.

  • Mary K.

    Great book! Funny, heartwarming and totally relatable!! Have listened to many chapters over and over again because Amy Poehler’s voice is so calming and familiar but still interesting enough that I didn’t fall asleep! You just feel like you’re listening to an old friend telling the tales of their lives before you met.❤️

  • Ramya K.

    Hilarious and genuine and as an avid SNL fan thoroughly enjoyable. Her narration just takes everything to the next level. Definitely worth listening to.

  • SarahAnn Machin

    While there were some words of wisdom and lessons you could take away from this, and her narrating was super relaxing and calming, it definitely felt like a book for someone who's more interested in the career aspect of biographies. I'm not into SNL like, at all, so whenever she was talking about SNL, or anything that had to do with her career, it definitely seemed to drag more. I was really more drawn to when she talked about Parks and Rec, but that might be because I'm a fan of that show. I was here for the wisdom, advice, and storytelling, not so much talking about her career.

  • Sue O.

    Great book with fabulous narration. Loved the guest narrators and the audio clips of shows etc. Felt genuine with Amy’s hilarious take on life, love and the universe. Favorite audio book to date Hope Amy does a sequel, but it’s hard work writing a book evidently

  • Tara B.

    Highly entertaining.

  • Jillian R.

    I really enjoyed listening to this. The fact that she has multiple comedians/famous individuals read titles/paragraphs/chapters makes the listen that much more interesting. It’s definitely a fun read/listen.

  • Jessica E.

    This autobiography is outstanding entirely. It is well structured, expertly read, and poignantly HILARIOUS. I loved learning more about Amy’s personality and the pieces and people of her life she finds most important. I hope eventually there’s another.

  • Margaret S

    Funny and deep at the same time.

  • Anonymous

    Great listen! Really enjoyed the story of her life to date.

  • Jessica B

    Really enjoyable listen. Liked hearing Seth Meyers' chapter about Amy. There were some great little nuggets of life wisdom in this book, mixed with humor and silliness. Lots of heart. I'd like to be Amy's friend, too.

  • Jessica C

    Real fun listen! Amy Poehler tells it like it is. The special guests add a whole other level to the listen. Very much enjoyed!

  • MA A

    Laughed out loud more than usual. Very clear images painted and very relatable. Loved the stories and the pace of the reading. Well written and well read.

  • Nick T

    The style was unique put fell a little short for me. I was hoping for a little more depth in the stories. Always great to have the author of a biography also be the narrator.

  • Jill T

    This was a fun read. My favorite part was the section about working moms and stay at home moms; it was worth reading just for that section alone! Amy has a huge heart and I feel like it really shows in her writing.

  • Grace Akhrem

    This was a really cute book, it was nice to hear Amy Poehler's voice in first person. I have a definitely recommend this book to a friend.

  • Miriam Morgan

    Amy is smart and funny and her personality really comes through in her narration

  • Krista Davis

    Not just a plain read through! At times I looked like a crazy person laughing hysterically while driving and/or sitting in my car! Thanks for keeping it real Amy!

  • Kayla Gamache

    I love Amy Poehler even more now. It's funny, intellectual, and entertaining.

  • Felicia Felton

    This books is so awesome. Amy keeps it real and honest. I truly appreciate this book. It will not be a disappointment.

  • Gilliam Oler

    This book is beautiful. It made me laugh, cry, and think. It is both comical and meaningful. I've now listened to it 3 times. You WILL NOT be disappointed.

  • Rachel Baket

    Amy focuses a lot on SNL. I was hoping to hear about more funny stories about her life, not just her career.

  • Emma Thoden

    Hearing this book in her voice made it 10x better. So great

  • David Blackburn

    thank you amy poehler, this was a fantastic audio book!!!

  • Carolyn Talbot

    Truly excellent, easy to listen to. Poehler will seem like one of your best girlfriends--one who can get you behind the curtain and into the writers' room at SNL.

  • Hillary Kuklenski

    This book was very funny. Amy writes honestly and from a feminist perspective. She tells stories of her life in a comical was

  • Christina Dann

    I LOVED this book and the narration was brilliant.

  • Tara Ledet

    Witty advice, hilarious stories, brilliant narration.

  • Shana Simpson

    Loved this book! Amy is smart, insightful and hilarious! Great book for all women!

  • Jessica Bell

    I really loved this book. There were a few boring moments scattered through, but I adore Amy Poehler and absolutely loved listening to her narrate this. I loved hearing her stories from the UCB days up to the current filming of Parks and Rec. It's worth a listen!

  • Alyson Aliano

    AMAZING. Listen to this now!!!! So funny, honest, smart, a true delight! I would listen to this again and again!

  • Katie Shelvy

    Great book. Funny yet inspiring and extremely clever

  • Julie Paulsen

    I love Amy poehler! I love this book even more. I gained a lot of respect for Amy when listening to this book. I will forever use her advice and stories to prove people wrong about something or to give facts about her or anything she referred to in this book. I am so proud of her! You should definitely get this book! It's incredible.

  • Nelly Navarro-Britt

    This book is an autobiography. It's hilarious & has awesome narrators. I don't think it would have been as funny if I read it.

  • Amanda Krzywonski

    Absolutely wonderful. I loved Amy for such a long time, and seeing into her life has helped me understand her comedy and acting. A must-read!!!

  • Tracie Thomas

    Truly expected more. It was remotely entertaining here and there but it seemed to reveal what I didn't want to know about Ms. Poehler. That she's rather self serving and not that intelligent or funny. It was disappointing as I'm a fan of SNL. In a sentence, it's shallow.

  • Veena Viswanathan

    Remarkably philosophical while utterly charming. Well done Amy Poehler!

  • Marian Cannell

    I just want to say this: I LOVE Amy Poehler. I do, her comedy style makes me laugh and I think she is utterly charming. I did not like this book. This in itself is so upsetting, because I wanted SO BADLY to like it. The best parts of her book are the ones that you feel like you can connect to her, but these moments are few. There is a lot of name dropping and a lot of times where you sit there thinking, "Well, then. How lovely for you, Amy Poehler."

  • michael cook

    I lost all respect for Amy Poehler. In "Yes Please" when she told the story about the man who handed her a script while she was sleeping on the train. Too bad, you had it going girl. Michael Cook

  • Lori Lagasse

    Amy was AMAZING at narrating her book. Hilarious and genuine! I would read any and all books she writes.

  • Kourtney Day

    This book made me feel like my mom was traveling with me as I drove across country. Such a comfort and a treat. I love you and I like you Amy Poehler.http://www.audiobooks.com/audiobook/yes-please/221714#

  • James Williams

    This book is not only funny, it's insightful and inspiring and it reveals an evolved humanity of a strong and super intelligent woman. It is full of compassion and inspires one to try harder and be better. Definitely not what I was expecting-- more substantive and entertaining than the typical celebrity memoir.

  • Kathy Corona

    Boring boring boring. And the point is?? Ah nothing just useless babel

  • DEWITT WOOD

    Just a bunch of name dropping and babble with some big name celebs trying to save it. About hallf way through I'd heard enough, the book really has no point.

  • Shanna Duff

    Cute and inspiring in parts. Overall an enjoyable listen. Not as funny as Tina Fey's book Bossypants, but their writing styles are very similar and I still enjoyed hearing Amy's story!
