Description

The mega-talented creator of Grey’s Anatomy and Scandal and executive producer of How to Get Away With Murder chronicles how saying YES for one year changed her life―and how it can change yours, too.

With three hit shows on television and three children at home, the uber-talented Shonda Rhimes had lots of good reasons to say NO when an unexpected invitation arrived. Hollywood party? No. Speaking engagement? No. Media appearances? No.

And there was the side-benefit of saying No for an introvert like Shonda: nothing new to fear.

Then Shonda’s sister laid down a challenge: just for one year, try to say YES to the unexpected invitations that come your way. Shonda reluctantly agreed―and the result was nothing short of transformative. In Year of Yes, Shonda Rhimes chronicles the powerful impact saying yes had on every aspect of her life―and how we can all change our lives with one little word. Yes.

From Publishers Weekly

Nov 09, 2015 – From the creator of the hit TV series Grey's Anatomy and Scandal, and executive producer of How to Get Away With Murder, comes a powerful memoir and self-help book that promotes saying "Yes!" to life. In 2013, Rhimes's sister challenged her over Thanksgiving meal prep, and Rhimes formed a dare for herself: an entire year of saying "yes" to the things that scared her. The results were spectacular: Rhimes learned to live life to the fullest and on her own terms. She agreed to public speaking events that helped move her career forward; spent more time playing with her children and less time working; and shed weight, as well as the toxic people and users in her life. Rhimes found saying "yes" so valuable that she resolved to extend her year-long promise into a lifetime. Now she shares some of the key beliefs and events behind this transformation, all with good humor and vivid prose. Rhimes comes across as inspiring and real, every bit the heroine whom readers need to inspire such a change in themselves.

Funny-smart- uplifting- not what I expected- good light read. Little bit inspirational too.

Honest, brilliant and insightful

This is one of the most insightful and entertaining books I've read in years. Shonda's honesty took me on a journey that helped me think about my own path to betterment.
