I truly enjoyed this read I can tell because I read it within a week :) Shonda writes about topics that have been bothering me for years and I didn't know how to handle them. I just couldn't see it. So reading and now having a handful of solutions that I at least can give a try as an option for change makes me exciting. Job truly well done

I love this book!!!! It made me re evaluate my life choices. It seriously is one of those books that makes you sit there and think about habits that at first you might not have been aware of. I found myself saying wow I do that. Man I need to change this and or that a lot throughout the book. Mainly because I can relate to some stories Shonda speaks about because I am introverted as well. I like to keep to myself. I am guilty of distancing myself from people. Reading the book made me aware of how I portray myself because of insecurities, or because it is what we are programmed to think of ourselves because of society. Own yourself. Be thankful. Say yes more to life.

I loved this book because it was like talking with a girlfriend just about life and how we all want to be authentic in our lives. It was funny but held important lessons and was very inspiring. Shonda is a great role model for girls to emulate. Highly recommend.

This book is an easy read. I loved how inspiring it was. Read the book in one day. Her story hit all the key points on what saying no to difficult things can lead and how much it can impact your life. I love how open she is in her story. Highly Recommend this book

I love Shonda Rimes. I love her book. I love the premise, which is basically: say 'yes' to every opportunity offered to me for an entire year. In the sea of memoirs by Amy Poehler, Tina Fey, and Lena Dunham and the like, this is my hands down favorite. Shonda Rimes makes no apologies for who she is. She gets down and dirty into her insecurity from the get go, whether that insecurity is about her appearance or her work. At the same time, she's unapologetic about her successes and celebrates herself in a fantastic way (looking at that amazing quote above.) The book gets even better if you're a fan of her shows. Knowing what's going on in her head about her characters and her plotlines is amazing. *Spoiler alert* I had no idea that she was more attached to Christina than Meredith from Grey's. The idea that Christina's life of work and success without a man is part of Shonda's personal fantasy just made her so relatable and admirable, especially because I can totally relate. When Christina left the show I also felt such a loss. In conclusion, this book is inspiring and hilarious and not cliche at all, so you should definitely read it. It's a super quick read too!

Triumphant book — Brave and Honest “You must do the things you think you cannot do” — Eleanor Roosevelt Shonda Rhymes shares how this simple truth and an admonishment by her sister sparked a journey that brought meaning and fulfillment to her already full world. Step by painstaking step Shonda learned to say “yes” to life and face down the fears standing in her way. A triumphant book filled with laughs, truths and poignant self-discoveries that lead to life-changing realizations of pure JOY. Do yourself a favor and read this little treasure.

I enjoyed Shonda's interview with Oprah and was excited to read this book! I must say I was disappointed and had to make myself finish it. Loved the topic but it was the worst read I've purchased this year.

I don't think i'm curious enough to continue and find out what exactly the point is, from this drama-queen style monologue.
