The four-time New York Times bestselling author, reality TV star, and “Mommy Mogul” Bethenny Frankel takes us on an empowering journey in A Place of Yes.

Bethenny Frankel’s no-nonsense, tell-it-like-it-is personality won over countless fans, and made her a nationally bestselling author and the star of her own hit Bravo show Bethenny Getting Married? Now Bethenny opens up and shares the obstacles she overcame and the great success she has enjoyed while discovering how to approach life from “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 money struggles. To deal with these challenges, Bethenny developed ten rules for pursuing her goals with authenticity and drive, including:

· Find your truth: Dig deep inside and figure out what is authentic for you, not anybody else.
· Act on it: You don’t have to have a master plan. But unless you do something, you’ve done nothing.
· Everything’s your business: Treat every job, person, and experience as if it could lead to your next big opportunity.
· Own it: If you do it, say it, think it—then own it. Stand up for yourself and fully acknowledge who you really are.

Each rule is illustrated with compelling, sometimes funny, sometimes outrageous examples that are pure Bethenny. It’s easy to say no, to say “I can’t,” to expect the worst, and to doubt yourself. But your life can be better than “not bad” or “good enough.” It can be amazing. And by putting Bethenny’s rules together, you can use them to be more successful, more fulfilled, healthier, and happier than ever before.

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.
