    This is not a comedy book. I mean, it's funny. Amy Poehler can't write a book and not be funny, because she's Amy fuckin' Poehler. But (and this is not the first time I'm going to compare the two memoirs) where Tina Fey's Bossypants contained humorous essays written specifically for the purpose of being funny, Poehler's does not. Everything is presented in a straightforward, matter-of-fact, fashion, and although a lot of the book is very, very fu...

    Fantastic! Amy Poehler is so funny and relatable and inspirational. I especially loved learning about how she got into comedy and improv (as that's something I'm interested in myself) and just her general attitude and perspective is so refreshing and positive. I actually listened to the audiobook for half of this and it was brilliant--Amy's narration just makes this extra fun and hilarious. Overall, this was an awesome memoir! (And the Parks and ...

    YES REALLY. I almost gave this two stars, except it includes George Clooney and that would be a crime. This book is fine. It didn't charm me. It actually took me about three or four days to read 288 pages, which is funny because a lot of those pages don't include any actual words (she's got a ton of photocopies and inspirational signs intermixed with the text). It just wasn't as fun to read as I anticipated. The problem is that she spends most of...

    It breaks my heart to give this book one star.I love Amy Poehler. In fact I love every member of that early two-thousands (the decade, not the century) female Saturday Night Live cast ensemble: Poehler, Fey, Rudolph, Dratch. I often mentally include Kristen Wiig in the mix, too, because she’s fantastic, but she was sort of late to the party, having joined SNL a year before Dratch and Fey left.But as I was saying, I think highly of Poehler. I en...

    No, thank you.I was supposed to love this book and as I always do when I find myself super disappointed, I looked back through other reviews to see if I was alone. I don't think I am alone, but no one is expressing my disappointment quite how I need it to be expressed, so I get to do that myself this time around.I just kept waiting... and waiting... and waiting. The moment it was going to get good and awesome had to be right around the corner! So...

    Find all of my reviews at: http://52bookminimum.blogspot.com/ Good Christ – just obtaining a library copy of this f*&^%$g book was like going on one of karen’s adventures. After my third trek down to the local bibliotheca, I finally had success. Look at the happy!You’re probably asking yourself “if she’s such a Poehler fangirl, why didn’t she just go to the B&N and grab herself a copy????” Well, you see … I am cheap.Yes Please als...

    This was pretty good! 😄I have the paperback but I listened to it on audio. She read the book herself and I love that. You get all of the true feelings when they read their own work. I loved looking at all of the pictures in the book as well. My copy is a small paperback and it has those soft glossy pages that you love to snif. 😄 And all bookaholics know what I mean. I actually sat down my phone to sniff the book again while reviewing. 😂T...

    Inspired me to continue on watching Parks & Rec!Very much enjoyed this, and I loved how Amy brought in others to help voice some sections of the book.

    HIGHLY HIGHLY RECOMMEND THE AUDIOBOOK! Amy Poehler is so genuine and awesome! On the audiobook she has special guests, a live audience for the final chapter, lots of random conversation, and all sorts of extra awesomness! LOVED THIS! :D

    [As Will Ferrell impersonating James Lipton:] "Amy, we remember seeing you in various things before you joined SNL in 2001. I'm sure this evoked the same feeling for our audience as most 90’s kids felt when Kenan joined the cast, though we were saddened to learn that he divorced Kel due to Kel’s orange soda addiction. You starred in such classics as Wet Hot American Summer, Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigalow, and Citizen Kane. From the Upright Citiz...
