I absolutely love Parks and Recreation. Truth be told, that is the only place from which I knew Amy Poehler when I picked up this book. I had heard about her skits on Saturday Night Live, but had never seen any.
This book is part women-in-comedy, part writing is hard, and part glimpse into the life of the author.
I was half expecting to find that Amy Poehler was Leslie Knope in reality. By this I mean capable, talented, a bit crazy at times, but full of love. I feel like my expectations were met.
This book felt intimate like a conversation with a friend over drinks. I greatly enjoyed reading it.
