Part memoir, part 'missive-from-the-middle', YES PLEASE is a hilarious collection of stories, thoughts, ideas, haikus and words-to-live-by drawn from the life and mind of acclaimed actress, writer and comedian Amy Poehler. YES PLEASE finds Amy riffing on sex, love, family, friendship and plastic surgery, and is chock-full of great jokes and sage advice (the useful kind, not the annoying kind you didn't ask for).
Amy Poehler was born in Boston to two school teacher parents. She was a cast member on Saturday Night Live from 2001 to 2009, where she was nominated for two Primetime Emmy Awards for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series.
