Inhaltsangabe

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.

Kritikerstimmen

"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)

so so relatable!

listening to this book made me realize that I, too, was asleep for most of my life-hiding in the pantry. Not even halfway through the book J started implementing Shondas life lessons and living a better life.
I can proudly say that I've socialized more last week than I did the past year and for someone with social anxiety, this is huge! thank you shonda, for always improving my life!

A marvelous storyteller with a slew of proof

This book touched me, made me laugh and root for Shonda Rhimes. It was a pleasure to listen to - from start to finish and over again. Although it felt deeply relatable to me from the get-go, I'm certain you'd enjoy it for the storytelling alone.

Amüsant, nicht weltbewegend

Ich hatte nicht das Gefühl, sonderlich viel gelernt zu haben. Tolle Synchronsprecherin! Hat Spaß gemacht.

Love, love, love her, her TV shows and her book

Shouldn't you never heard about "Grey's Anatomy" or "Scandal" or "How to get away with Murder" - doesn't matter. This book is smart and funny and interesting and true and provides a glimpse into a true creative soul. To get really into the vibes of the book, watch her TED talk first.

Makes me want to watch Greys!

At first, I didn't quite feel it, but after listening for a while I really started to LOVE Shanda! She's so honest, unique and normal. Down to earth, dealing with the same problems we all deal with from time to time. You can really understand how her life changed during this year and it makes you want to change something as well.
Highly recommend it to anyone who's interested in personal development and happiness :)

wonderfully inspiring

it's a beautiful, well written and amazingly honest book. the recordings of shonda's speeches made it become an even more precious listening experience.
I thank shonda very much for taking down her “wig“ and being brave enough to share her story with all of us. truly inspiring.
