Funny and witty

Written by Liza on April 17th, 2016

  • Book Rating: 4/5

This book was funny, witty and awesome. Especially when Amy deals with motherhood, working mothers, a working woman surrounded by men (in comedy like in hi-tech I guess), cellular phones, and more. She takes real life and highlights all the best and the worst in them, and she does it masterfully, so you just can't stop laughing. Some of the chapters deserve only 1 star (got it, you have so many famous and great friends, e.g. Tina Fay, and it is wonderful, but this is kind of boring for the rest of us), but most chapters are just hilarious and definitely worth 5 stars, therefore overall of 4 stars. Make sure you listen to the book and not reading it. Also, way way better than Bossypants, which was way more on the boring side. So, fell in love with Poehler, and now planning on checking out Parks and Recreation.
