#3: Yes Please by Amy Poehler

Comedian Amy Poehler offers a slice of life and a big chunk of comedy in Yes Please.

I bought this for my wife for Christmas at her request and was eager to read it next.  There are numerous family members who want to dibs also.

It was pretty interesting and funny, though Poehler didn't spend as much time on Saturday Night Live and Parks and Recreation as I might have liked.  It is more a mix of coming of age story blended with outright comedy bits and insights.

Perhaps not as darkly funny as Sarah Silverman's The Bedwetter, as challenging as Lena Dunham's Not That Kind of Girl, nor as insightful as Tina Fey's Bossypants, but enjoyable in its own right.
