In one of our favorite episodes of Parks and Recreation, Leslie Knope (played by Amy Poehler) says to the camera, “I’m so happy, I want to shout it from the rooftops,” whereupon her new fiancé, Ben Wyatt, chimes in, “And she has. We’ve gotten several noise complaints.” We know the feeling: We’ve been shouting (with laughter) ourselves since the moment we started reading Poehler’s new book, and we want everyone to hear about it. In this memoir-slash-self-help book, Poehler offers up stories from her time on SNL and Parks and Rec, tidbits of (hilarious) everyday wisdom, and even what George Clooney whispered to her when she sat on his lap at the Golden Globes.
How to Use
Open, read, laugh. (And, if you’re laughing as hard as we were: Don’t forget to breathe.)
