Description

In this poignant, hilarious and deeply intimate call to arms, Hollywood's most powerful woman, the mega-talented creator of Grey's Anatomy and Scandal and executive producer of How to Get Away with Murder and Catch, reveals how saying YES changed her life - and how it can change yours too. 

With three hit shows on television and three children at home, Shonda Rhimes had lots of good reasons to say no when invitations arrived. Hollywood party? No. Speaking engagement? No. Media appearances? No. 

And to an introvert like Shonda, who describes herself as 'hugging the walls' at social events and experiencing panic attacks before press interviews, there was a particular benefit to saying no: nothing new to fear. 
Then came Thanksgiving 2013, when Shonda's sister Delorse muttered six little words at her: You never say yes to anything. 

Profound, impassioned and laugh-out-loud funny, in Year of Yes Shonda Rhimes reveals how saying YES changed - and saved - her life. And inspires readers everywhere to change their own lives with one little word: Yes.

From Publishers Weekly

09 November 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.
