Description

In this dynamic, comical, and intensely intimate call to arms, Shonda Rhimes reveals how saying YES changed her life, and explains how it can change yours too. Often considered one of Hollywood’s most powerful women, Rhimes is, without a doubt, extremely successful; she has three hit shows on television, three children at home, and more projects on the way. With this type of success comes attention, and considering how busy Rhimes is she had plenty of reasons to say no to things. Party invitation? No. Speaking Engagement? No. Media appearances? Nope.

A self proclaimed introvert, Shonda describes how she likes to “hug the walls” at social events and often experiences panic attacks before important interviews. It wasn’t until, over Thanksgiving in 2013, that her sister told her “You never say yes to anything.”

Because of this, Rhimes was inspired to change her lifestyle, and change her answers: thus, Shonda Rhimes’ “Year of Yes” was born.

Inspiring readers all over the world, Rhimes has crafted a unique book all based on one little word: “Yes.”
