Audio Book Summary

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 loved this book. I\'ve been trying to read the hard-copy for months but couldn\'t sit still long enough. Hearing Shonda narrate brought the book to life. This book reminded me of my life. I\'ve been inspired to make 2017 my year of YES.
