Summary:

The New York Times bestselling author of Naturally Thin and The Skinnygirl Dish takes listeners on an empowering journey to a place of Yes.

Bethenny’s no-nonsense, tell it like it is personality won over countless viewers and made her a breakout star of the Real Housewives of New York City and a nationally bestselling author. Now, Bethenny, who previously has focused her advice on diet and nutrition, opens up to listeners and shares the obstacles she overcame and the great success she has enjoyed discovering “A Place of Yes.” Bethenny’s path was not always clear as she overcame a difficult childhood, failed relationships, entrepreneurial efforts that never quite got off the ground, and lifelong issues with money. To deal with these challenges, Bethenny developed ten rules for pursuing her goals with authenticity and drive: Know What You Want; The Cream Rises to the Top; Don’t Wear Your Story; and Go for Yours are just a few. Each rule is illustrated with compelling, sometimes funny, sometimes outrageous examples that are pure Bethenny. Taken together, anyone can apply these rules to their own life as they deal with relationships, careers, and money.

    I love how real and down to earth she is. I felt the book was really in her voice and I loved that she narrated because there are parts that only Bethenny could do! I will highly recommend this book, it gave me great perspective

    I really wanted to like this book, I really did. First of all, she should not have read it. She is monotone, rushed and well, awful. Putting that aside, there were no great revelations here. Be nice, let go of anger and be focused. And yeah I get it, she loves her kid and husband and dog. She tells us she is a lovable pain in the ass, and that she has mommy/daddy issues. We get it. She tells us all over and over and over all the things she did, sell cookies, be an actress, party planner, reality star yada yada yada. Clearly it is a resume designed to let everyone know one thing, she wants to be a talk show host. In the end, what she said in a gazzillion pages could have been said in one short paragraph. She is human, she is ambitious, she is working on it.

    Susanne Sommers & Bethany Frankel were cut from the same vocal cord. --forceful, breath-lacking, loud, mono-pitched speakers that they wear you out, before you even hear the message. BUT, after I heard the message.... wait? there was a message in Bethany's book? (susanne's had a message) This was lots of details, and thoughts, and details, and more details... vice spitting out the important part with a little quip about how she came upon a "rule"... THAT would have been WAY better. Honestly, when she took a moment to reflect personally in the middle/end of the book, she took breaths and had inflection in her voice. There was emotion, and phrasing... and, yet, still no message, but it was such a relief. I was pained that the first style of reading returned, like it was in all CAPS with no punctuation, emotion, message(other than that which you can read on the cover of every women's magazine since they started making paper magazines), inflection, or breaths... Ugh.
