Yes Please by Amy Poehler-- Yay! Christmas gifts!
Image from Amazon. I've liked Amy Poehler ever since I first saw her on the Upright Citizens Brigade show on Comedy Central. Her book is definitely worth reading. I hope she writes more. I really like her career advice: "Your career will never marry you," and "Success is filled with MSG."
Amy Poehler's new book "Yes Please". Do I need that? Yes please.
