    Amy is a smart & kind writer, who tells a smart & kind story about her life. She makes you wish you had her as a BFF, then reminds you that she carefully guards her privacy & her space. Oh, well. She tells just enough details about her early life & family of origin to let you see that she grew up in a modest, loving, & fun home. Too many books spend multiple chapters on the early lives of their subjects -- if not generations of their ancestors -- and they are always, 100% of the time, boring. No exceptions. Amy does a nice job of giving you relevant information about her early life sprinkled throughout the book. Amy's intelligence, tender heart, & sense of humor are all on display in this well written book. - autor:CarrotBean-Fpibm - title:Time well spent & fun to boot.,Books, eBooks and Audiobooks

    Yes, I bought it and read much of it. I must say the author, no, let's call her a writer, or scribe, knows a lot of famous folks. Though I never figured out why I should care. It's not remotely funny. If she sat next to me on a plane, I'd claim nausea and get the next plane. Think about what sort of person thinks everyone wants to read a book they wrote about themselves. See what I mean? - autor:RiccoV-Fpibm - title:Really self indulgent c$$p,Books, eBooks and Audiobooks

  • Made me appreciate an actress even more,Books, eBooks and Audiobooks

    Besides Amy Poehler being her normal (I cannot find an appropriate way to describe how much I appreciate her comedy and the multiple levels of comedy involved in everything that she does; I'll go with hysterical) hysterical self only the author of a biography can capture the true irony in everything that she has to say. Every chapter made me laugh and think equally. Her chapter speaking to all the actors and actresses on Parks and Rec made me rematch the show from start to finish on a weekly basis. Every time I watch the show now I appreciate the talent around it. This audiobook, besides being perfectly entertaining, has made me appreciate the people around her. It's a truly amazing work of art. - autor:COSI1-Fpibm - title:Made me appreciate an actress even more,Books, eBooks and Audiobooks

    Amy Poehler is my comedy queen and this book just proved that more! I was surprised at how well she related to all different stages of life with her advice. I have the hard copy and the audiobook and I frequently pick both up and just re-read. Highly recommend to everyone! - autor:Princess Fionna-Fpibm - title:The Best.,Books, eBooks and Audiobooks

    I loved this book. I love Amy Poehler and read this book and get to know her as a regular person who struggled hard and for a long time to get to where she is today was so inspiring. Have great respect for her and I hope she writes another book!!!!! - autor:nandita727-Fpibm - title:Amazing!!,Books, eBooks and Audiobooks

    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!!! - autor:Momma Myrna-Fpibm - title:Yes Please!,Books, eBooks and Audiobooks

    I became non-friends Amy Poehler through Leslie Knope, whose character has made me laugh and smile and cry through some difficult times. I want to blanket-thank everyone who brought this character to life and to me. This book was a treat, and I highlighted the crap out of it. - autor:4verage_Joe-Fpibm - title:Don’t cry, sexy,Books, eBooks and Audiobooks
