Yes Please

Yes Please by Amy PoehlerReviewed by Miranda BoyerIf
 you can’t tell by now, I have a fascination with people. I love to 
watch people, I enjoy knowing about their lives, the reasons why they do
 things. It’s the reason I wanted to go to law school and some days 
still do. The way that I satisfy my lawyer-esk cravings is by reading 
autobiographies and biographies. Weird right? Like getting to peak into 
someone’s life without having to go to law school, sort of. So the latest autobiography was Amy Poehler’s Yes Please. I
 went about it the good ol’ audio format, I figured listening to Amy 
read her book had to be funnier then reading it myself. I was pleasantly
 surprised to find that one chapter was read from a comedy club, she had
 several guests and it was a surprising delight. There was a large chapter or two dedicated to Poehler’s television show Parks and Recreation.
 While I’ve never watched this show, I was still able to enjoy those 
very humorous chapters. Amy takes us through her very middle class 
suburbia life through her education and hard work, to the heart of her 
story. We get to peek inside of her life and we get to take a glimpse of
 who she is.
