Mindy Kaling’s lacked structure, was pretty dull and was inappropriate at times. Don’t joke about rape, grown women should know that. As for Lena Dunham’s offering – you can read my views here. Caitlin Moran’s “How To Be Woman” took two attempts at completing and just tried to hard to be controversial.
Amy Poehler, is laugh out loud funny, passes on wise wisdom in a way that makes you think “why don’t I know this? Why haven’t I thought of this before” joined together with heartwarming tales of her children, parents and her own childhood. If any doubt was left as to whether Poehler is a top lady, she speaks of her former husband with fondness, something not many would be able to do so gracefully. She also presents herself as very human and relatable by being open about a time she behaved poorly and why the apology was of such great importance. She also talks about her career with prides and describes what it's like trying to break the comedy industry as a woman and balancing this with family life.
Whether or not you are familiar with Parks and Recreation or Saturday Night Live, Yes Please is such a feel good book laced with important advice and undertones of feminism, which makes for great life lessons for young women. If you're going to read a book by a female celebrity, make it this one!
