In Amy Poehler’s highly anticipated first book, Yes Please, she offers up a big juicy stew of personal stories, funny bits on sex and love and friendship and parenthood and real life advice (some useful, some not so much), like when to be funny and when to be serious. Powered by Amy’s charming and hilarious, biting yet wise voice, Yes Please is a book full of words to live by.
Overall the book was pretty okay. Amy gives pretty good advice and it was sort of funny. The chapter where she talked about her anxiety felt SOOOOOOOOOO true.
Even though the book was good, there were some pretty problematic lines. The only one I remember is: “For the hundredth time this week, I wish I was lesbian.” That quote pretty much speaks for itself so like yeah. She is basically saying she wishes she were lesbian because she thinks guys suck, but she isn’t taking into account the prejudice that comes with being queer.
