Whether she’s playing Hillary Clinton to Tina Fey’s Sarah Palin on SNL or climbing walls (real or metaphorical) on Parks & Recreation, Amy Poehler rides a wave of ironic, yet upbeat humor. In this much-awaited debut, the multi-talented celeb writes with winning candor about sundry topics under the sun including, but not limited to, her experiences as a child of two Massachusetts teacher parents, early career calamities, television fame, movie fortune, and family happiness. This aptly-titled affirmation qualifies as the perfect shelf companion to Fey’s Bossypants.

Play On: Now, Then, and Fleetwood Mac
Mick Fleetwood not only contributed his last name to the famous rock band, but the Fleetwood Mac drummer is its only member who has been there ever since in its 1967 beginnings. In this candid memoir, the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer describes the group’s complicated, often fractious relationships as they created their music and toured. He also frankly describes the effects of fame and sudden wealth had on him personally. (P.S. Fleetwood and Fleetwood Mac are still thriving. Their 2013 tour was their most successful outing ever.)
