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.

💞Loved Up

Я люблю Эми (и ее персонажа Лесли Ноуп из "Парка и зон отдыха") from the first sight. И - вполне понятно - почему я люблю эту книгу. На самом деле, Эми очень похожа на Лесли только погрубее и похаотичнее. Я люблю читать женщин, которые похожи на меня, потому что 1) я очень здорово откликаюсь на то, о чем они пишут 2) нахожу кучу житейской мудрости для себя и таких как я.
У этой книги есть отрицательные отзывы и я понимаю, почему - она немного непоследовательна и полна рассуждений о себе, автор не стесняется себя похвалить (но и поругать в общем-то тоже). В целом, книга очень личная, практически как дневник. Но - добрая, мотивирующая, полная советов и классных шуток. В бумажном варианте - куча клевых фоток и иллюстраций, в аудио - куча приглашенных гостей :) Да, я читала в обоих форматах :D

I wrote this book after my kids went to sleep. I wrote this book on subways and on airplanes and
in between setups while I shot a television show. I wrote this book from scribbled thoughts I kept in
the Notes app on my iPhone and conversations I had with myself in my own head before I went to
sleep. I wrote it ugly and in pieces.

Say no? Say no to an opportunity that may be slightly out of our comfort zone? Quiet our voice because we are worried it is not perfect? I believe great people do things before they are ready.

The only thing we can depend on in life is that everything changes. The seasons, our partners, what we want and need. We hold hands with our high school friends and swear to never lose touch, and then we do. We scrape ice off our cars and feel like winter will never end, and it does. We stand in the bathroom and look at our face and say, “Stop getting old, face. I command you!” and it doesn’t listen. Change is the only constant.
