Do you want to get to know the woman we first came to love on Comedy Central's Upright Citizens Brigade? Do you want to spend some time with the lady who made you howl with laughter on Saturday Night Live, and in movies like Baby Mama, Blades of Glory, and They Came Together? Do you find yourself daydreaming about hanging out with the actor behind the brilliant Leslie Knope on Parks and Recreation? Did you wish you were in the audience at the last two Golden Globes ceremonies, so you could bask in the hilarity of Amy's one-liners?

If your answer to these questions is "Yes Please!" then you are in luck. In her first book, one of our most beloved funny folk delivers a smart, pointed, and ultimately inspirational read. Full of the comedic skill that makes us all love Amy, Yes Please is a rich and varied collection of stories, lists, poetry (Plastic Surgery Haiku, to be specific), photographs, mantras and advice. With chapters like "Treat Your Career Like a Bad Boyfriend," "Plain Girl Versus the Demon" and "The Robots Will Kill Us All" Yes Please will make you think as much as it will make you laugh. Honest, personal, real, and righteous, Yes Please is full of words to live by.

Yes Please!

I truly enjoyed this book. It was a light and easy read (just what I needed) I felt truly emerged in her life stories. I so want to say I was imagining it to be funnier. But Amy's heart felt out pour of who she is compensated for it. There were true moments of reflection and I appreciated that. (Also something I felt I needed). So great job Amy, you did it!!!

Thank you, Amy.

I burned through this book in a few short days. I had moments I went back to check and make sure I still had enough left. I panicked when I realized I only had a few pages.
I felt A) guilt, for purchasing and “e-book”. I want to feel the pages. I want to write notes. I want my tears to stain the pages. B) slightly okay with it, because you so elegantly included those same feelings within.

You made me cry happy, sad, gracious, and inspired tears. You reminded me what it was like watching you while I was growing up. You gave me some of my childhood wonder back.
You gave me wisdom, reassured me I wasn’t crazy in some of my thoughts/views. You let me hear your voice when I read this. I haven’t heard the audiobook (is there one?), your way with words just bleed through the pages in sound.
Your choice of quotes are delicate and bold, in the best ways.

I could go on, but I feel like I’m a broken record. Anyone who reads YES PLEASE can feel your heart in each letter. This was truly a delight to read, I can’t wait for more.

Thank you, Amy.
