Year of Yes: How to Dance It Out, Stand In the Sun and Be Your Own Person

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Shonda Rhimes

Narrated By: Shonda Rhimes

Publisher: Simon & Schuster

Date: November 2015

Duration: 7 hours 8 minutes


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.

    I absolutely loved listening to this book. It got me back into my groove of being happy and removing the things and people in my life that bring negativity, drama, and selfishness. I will not let crap into my life anymore. I will be happy, experience joy, and have much laughter!!!! Getting back to the old me and a new me as well!!!!! Thanks for the wonderful insight and self-reflection that was much needed! Jam

    I absolutely enjoyed this book and wish I would have read/listened to it months ago. I found that it was very helpful and the delivery maintained my attention and provided me with situations that allowed me to relate and implement change within my interaction with others. I highly recommend this book for someone that is looking to get out of their comfort zone.
