Editor's Note

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!

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.

    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!

    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!
