Description

2017 Audie Award Finalist for Audiobook of the Year

The megatalented 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 ubertalented 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.

Ce que les critiques en disent

"What makes this such a powerful audiobook is that, behind her colloquial language and assertive style, you can appreciate the work it took for someone this shy to begin making public appearances and to perform this excellent inspirational audio." ( AudioFile)

Love her!

Omg she made me lol almost the entire book!
It was reassuring that someone so successful and famous was a person just like any of us; she has her own challenges to overcome despite the fact that she has made an amazing career out of her creative mind!
Thank u for sharing Shonda! You definitely need to write more books for us! Maybe a workbook for us to utilize while we explore our year of yes! Something we can journal in recording our reasons and feelings for saying no...be nice to track our yes’ when we would normally have said no! I’m doing that in a notebook but maybe you have ideas of how to format something to accompany this inspiring book!
Another book you might write could be ‘How to write a non fiction novel’ I would love to write a book but knowing how u turned your ideas into a brilliant career would be awesome! I’m doing research on how to write a book and would love your thoughts and ideas!

Hilarious glimpse of who Shonda Rhymes told by her

I had heard of her name before and of greys anatomy and private practice. Didn’t know she wrote how to get away with murder too. If you like any of those shows you’ll like this book. Great look into her life and her journey behind the scenes of these successful shows. It’s very relatable and not an autobiography. Read it in a breeze. Kind of like Becoming by Michelle Obama. Her telling of the story also reminded me of Michelle Obama. Definitely recommend

Amazeballs

Shonda has always been an amazing person in my head. I live for my TGIT nights, and admire her hard work. I would totally want to meet her, be one of her people, just to be part of her amazing journey. hearing her talk was wonderful, and yes, I actually answered her when she said things or asked questions lol but I don't care! I dance it out too, and I don't apologize for it.

This was everything!

I recommend this book to everyone! Especially to fellow millennials like me that may already feel like you’re done and you’ve messed too much up to have anymore yes moments.

So glad this was narrated by Shonda. Felt like I was chilling with a friend. Grateful for the vulnerability and lessons she passed down through this book. ✊🏾

Year of Yes! Got me saying Yaaas!

I laughed out loud walking down the street on more than one occasion as I listened to audiobook of Shonda telling her stories. I also got a bit emotional as I stepped off the subway one morning listen to her speech ‘you are not alone’. Then I went out and bought the paperback because I loved it.

It’s funny, insightful, empowering and inspiring. It reads like a fun fiction novel with great characters, love, disappointment, drama, unpredictability, high points and low points and laugh out loud moments. What’s also special is that Shonda is talking to you, the reader. She takes you along for the ride on her train (inside her head and her tv shows), down the track she’s laid and never lets you forget that she knows you’re there, with her. She sees you and she knows you might be judging her sometimes but she is still fearless in telling her truths while forcing you to check yourself at the same time.

This book is like the kind of song that you want to play on repeat.

Brilliant!

This is an inspirational book and I absolutely loved Shonda’s reading of it. But of course because it was her story! But it is also a story full of life lessons for us all. I am absolutely motivated to use some of them in my own life. Thank you Shonda!

Best 7 Hours Listening to an Audio Book Ever!

What made the experience of listening to Year of Yes the most enjoyable?

Shonda adds so much personality to the narration. She's sassy, fun, and honest about struggling with the same doubts that we all have.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Year of Yes?

What I found most touching was the chapter about her weight/image problem and how she confronted it and took care of business--losing 127lbs!

What does Shonda Rhimes bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Herself. Listening to the audio book was like sitting down with a girlfriend and a glass of wine to hear about her deepest fears and failures and how she overcame them and that you can too.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I laughed and I cried...

Any additional comments?

Listen to the audio book, even if you've already read the book. Shonda's narration adds so much more depth to the experience. And as an added bonus she includes recordings of three inspiring speeches she made during her "Year of Yes" experiment.

Say YES to reading this book!

I have been a long time admirer of Shonda and her work and this book is one more thing to add to that list. She is amazing, she is more than just her talents she is an inspiration. This book came to me at a time when I was having severe self doubt. I knew my life was no where close to the path that I always thought it would be on but I did not know how to change. I was just sinking deeper into a pit of pain, anguish, desperation and hate. The first day I started listening I got half way through the book, I walked for miles just listening. Each day I felt myself getting stronger, I observed areas of my life I wanted to change. I started a journal to track my progress and thought of steps I could take to reach my goals.

This book to me was the kick in the butt I needed to realize my own strength which I lost after getting kicked down a few times. I retreated from life, I stopped trying. For me making excuses was much easier than doing something. I'm still getting knocked down but he difference is I'm still trying, I will forever try my best for ME!

Excellent book!

I've never watched any of her television shows but she nailed this book and narration. Shonda keeps you engaged, she is funny, charming, and makes you want to say yes to everything. Well done....

GREAT READ!

Inspirational read for all people. I laughed out loud often, as she spins the story of saying yes. Shonda is a great narrator, and paints a revealing portrait of her struggles, background, and transformation. Her story definitely is a page turner. You will enjoy this read!

Its ok

Its more of a memoir than I expected. Greys Anatomy fans will love it. Stories and memories of good friends and good times. The only real takeaway for me was that after you've cultivated your group of friends into a band of supportive cheerleaders, you should start listening to what they love about you and believe those things.

I became uninterested the last 2 hours and didnt finish.

Like a Visit with an Old Friend

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes.

Any additional comments?

This book is fun, interesting, thoughtful and thought provoking. It feels like a visit from one of your old friends, and then ya kinda realize it maybe is. If you are a fan of Rhimes' work, then listening to this feels just like that! Then you remember that she is the person behind the characters you have loved for years and you can identify a little bit of her in every one of them. It's great. I found it very relatable and a enjoyable. I am not a book-mark user, but there were places I marked to make sure I shared with others.

Began well, but disappointing

What disappointed you about Year of Yes?

I liked the idea the book is based upon, but after the first few chapters, it became more about her life as opposed to the idea of saying YES; besides, simply saying yes to accepting awards and attending parties with celebrities, is a little difficult to relate to.

meh!

I think i got suckered into this book by the title which sounded really cool. This book has some good points, but is mostly just her story of her year, and it is very very long winded. I also felt it had a pretty strong political agenda, . i wouldn't listen to this book again. The book takes a really long time to get going. i kept thinking, when is she going to get to the point in her story.

I wish there were more than five stars...

If I liked Shonda before, I love her now. Her journey of transformation is inspiring. But the best part about the Year of Yes, is that the actual live recordings of some of her speeches are terrific. One of the best audio book productions I have ever heard. In terms of "personal journey" books, Shonda leaves Liz Gilbert in the dust. Thanks Shonda.
