Примечание редактора

Say yes to reading this…

Shonda Rhimes’ inspiring story shows how a year of saying yes made her go from super successful to successful AND happy. Say yes to reading this and discover how you can do anything you put your mind to!

Описание

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.

    Turns out that I love TV writers talking about themselves. Mindy Kaling, now Shonda Rhimes...TV writers are my kind of people.
    If you write for TV - assemble a memoir, narrate the audiobook, and just send it my way.

    I was so moved by this book I cannot even put it into words. As an avid fan of Grey's Anatomy, so many of the words I read and stories Shonda Rhimes was gracious enough to share put so many things into perspective for me. I loved it!

    Very inspiring!

    This was a funny breezy sort of book that spoke of female empowerment and that we all can have it. Of course, I loved all the asides about Gray's Anatomy but her message is what will stay with me.

    Shonda Rhimes is an amazing talent and person inside and out. We are definitely friends in my head. I read this book four times before I put it down because it has so much wisdom in it. If you want to change your life for the better, pick up this book and just start saying yes.

    Witty, insightful, and often thought provoking. A quick, fun read, but with substance. I knew very little of Shonda Rhimes and had never watched any of her TV shows, but decided to pick this up after catching part of an NPR interview she did The good news is you don't have to know anything about her previous work to enjoy and learn something from this book.

    An autobiography by the producer/writer of "Grey's Anatomy" and "Scandal". Although I don't watch any of the shows Shonda works on, her book was recommended and loaned to me by my boss. I found the writing to be engaging and easy to read. It kept me interested and I enjoyed it. Even though I can see where she certainly comes off a little egocentric (and much more outgoing, even prior to her "Year of Yes", than she assumed herself to be), I could still identify with much of what she was saying. As an introvert myself, I know how hard it is to get out there and put yourself in uncomfortable situations where you must deal with people. Also, she has really accomplished quite a lot and broke out of the stereotypical mold many women find themselves in. My favorite part was probably the description of her parent's marriage. I love the visualization of the ducks imprinting on each other, very sweet!Overall, I liked the book and would certainly recommend.

    Great book! What made it even better was Shonda’s narration. It’s my favorite audiobook so far. It was like a book I could not put down – I couldn’t wait to be in the car to listen to it!

    I originally thought audiobooks were odd. Mainly because I felt as though I wouldn't be able to give it my undivided attention. I sure was wrong. I finished the book in a day and I was sad it ended. I felt as though Ms. Rhimes and I were having a lovely conversation regarding life and how vital it is to embrace the "badassary" we each possess to catapult ourselves to the highest of heights where we're destined to be.

    Yes. I expected this to be more of a self help type book, but was happily pleased when it turned out to be a memoir. I have learned how much of myself I see in Shonda Rhimes, and that just made this all the better.

    I had no idea who Shona Rhimes was before listening to her book. I now love this woman. She has made me look at my life in an entirely different way. This book has changed me and that is beyond powerful. Thank you Ms. Rhimes for sharing your heart and brain with me ❤️
