Take a dose of Hunter S. Thompson, a whiff of David Sedaris, and a whole lot of National Lampoon-style snark and you've got P. J. O'Rourke. An absolutely hilarious collection, for both sides of the political divide. ~ Reviewed by Charles Bottomley

It is an indisputable fact that Tina Fey is a boss. She has an amazing career with the likes of Saturday Night Live, as well as writing and producing shows such as 30 Rock and Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. She is a hard working mom whose best friend is AMY POEHLER! Fey has worked (even at a YMCA) for everything she has and never gave up on her dreams. *Clearly a boss* (And she’s managed to do it all without a driver’s license!) ~ Reviewed by Misha D'Andrea

Full of testimonials about Poehler’s work ethic, comedic genius, and her “what you see is what you get” attitude, Yes Please is for her fans who want a laugh out loud read. ~ Reviewed by Jess Hanlon
