Amy Poehler’s sitcom “Parks and Recreation” may have just ended, but her book “Yes Please” isn’t going anywhere.

Meanwhile, it’s at number 10 on the NYT combined print and e-book nonfiction list for the same week.

Reviews of Poehler's memoir were mixed. Some critics called the book a “mess” and wrote that “lots of this book feels like filler,” while others found “Yes” “wise [and] earnest” and “truly hilarious.”
