Yes Please by Amy Poehler
This interesting book begins with a very long introduction about how difficult it was to write the work and that she did not believe that she would ever finish it (she repeats this thought again and again). She asks her mother and her colleagues to write "guest chapters".
The author playfully complains about the clogged schedule and two small children, but in fact, it is not difficult at all to imagine that she simply did not really want to do this. The book was made by editors and publishers.
In fact, the reader quickly becomes convinced that it was so uneasy for Amy Poehler to write her book because she had not had any problems in life. She was not offended by classmates. She is a happy woman who always laughs. She had a happy childhood. She even gave birth to her children with a laugh.
The whole book is written in such a jocular form that it does not look like all typical well-known success stories. Nevertheless, here the readers can find out what character qualities made Amy Poehler so popular and learn how to succeed in combining career and active social life.
