Book Description

4 Dec 2008

'I, Danny Wallace, being of sound mind and body, do hereby write this manifesto for my life. I swear I will be more open to opportunity. I swear I will live my life taking every available chance. I will say Yes to every favour, request, suggestion and invitation. I WILL SWEAR TO SAY YES WHERE ONCE I WOULD SAY NO.'

Danny Wallace had been staying in. Far too much. Having been dumped by his girlfriend, he really wasn't doing the young, free and single thing very well. Instead he was avoiding people. Texting them instead of calling them. Calling them instead of meeting them. That is until one fateful date when a mystery man on a late-night bus told him to 'say yes more'. These three simple words changed Danny's life forever. Yes Man is the story of what happened when Danny decided to say YES to everything, in order to make his life more interesting. And boy, did it get more interesting.

This is the tie-in book that goes with the 2008 film of the Danny Wallace book - Yes Man - starring Jim Carrey and Zooey Deschanel, which is being released by Warner Bros in December 2008.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stunning 31 Dec 2008
By F. Shaw
Format:Paperback
One of my favourite books of all time, I'm dumbfounded, to say the least, at the 6 people who have rated it one star. I read it in a single day and have since re-read it about 6 times, one of the funniest books I have ever read.

It really is a shame that whoever adapted it for screen didn't do it justice.

Buy the book and I promise you that you won't regret it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Easily one of the best books I've ever read 2 Feb 2008
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is something special. It will make you laugh out loud, it might even make you cry, and what's probably more important, it can teach you, as it taught me, something very important about life.

I don't think most people know or ever think about how a decision they make today can impact on their lives in 2 or 3 months time. I know I've never thought about life in those terms before.

It's a very enjoyable read and a real adventure, so no wonder it's being made into a film starring Jim Carrey. I only hope the film does the book justice. According to Danny, who's already read the script, it does. So I can't wait to see it.

Something else: after you've read this book, you'll become incredibly self conscious of saying "no" to things.

As well as entertaining me for many hours, I think this book has probably affected me to an extent I won't know of for several months or years.

I'm glad I said yes to buying it and I eagerly await the movie!

Format:Paperback
When he met a man on the bus that told him to say `yes' more, Danny Wallace decided to embark on a project. If you've read Are You Dave Gorman? or Join Me then you will be well acquainted with the obsessive extent that Danny applies himself to such projects as well as his excellent ability to tell a good tale. Yes Man is no different: one hell of an inspirational tale of a remarkably silly yet brilliant idea.

He had been stuck in a rut, his girlfriend had left him and he was becoming a recluse. Persistent nay-saying had started to impact on his health, happiness and friendships; his life fast becoming a cycle or work, television and tea. The man on the bus had sparked a change and had inspired Danny to write The Yes Manifesto: say `yes' to every suggestion, proposal and invitation until the end of the year. That's yes to everything, no matter how ridiculous a yes may be.

With only a single friend holding knowledge of his plans, and a cruel forfeit looming should he fail, a farcical tale ensues to the point where the reader knows not whether to laugh, cringe or cry. Ranging from the innocent extra pints in the pub to a rather sinister trip to Amsterdam to meet a Nigerian bank scammer; Danny's life soon becomes consumed by the lack of power over his decisions.

One dimensional this tale is not. Like every good story, there is a bad guy on the scene. A third-party who becomes aware of his tactics and, in the guise of The Challenger, sets him on quests which he must say `yes' to. Unrelenting, Danny sticks to the manifesto and aims to see his task through several months until the stroke of midnight at New Year.

5.0 out of 5 stars Si a Todo! 21 Aug 2006
Format:Paperback
This book is great! its starts off with danny. our hero of this tale. however at the start, he is rather dull, and seems to lost his love for life, while taking a bus home, a strange man tells him to " say yes more" and in true danny wallace fashion, he does exactly that, which leads him all around the world. and leads to some very funny situations!
In danny's "yess manifesto" it says he has to say yes to everything, including all invites and requests etc.

so when danny has ges a span email from " the son of a murdered sultan" danny see's the positive side of it, and ends up trying to help him out! eventually he ends up in amsterdam, and I wont spoil that escapade for you!

this is a highly enjoyable book, which is easy going, and makes great light reading! it also ends up giving you a whole new outlook on life, and renember! si a Todo!

5.0 out of 5 stars What a great, easy read 14 Aug 2009
By ceb 123
Format:Paperback
I've always liked Danny Wallace's style, and the challenges he sets himself. I've never read his books before, but I'd watched the TV show about starting his own country in his flat, and heard about how he started his own cult. I'd also been aware that one of his books, Yes Man, had been made into a film. I haven't seen the film but found the book in Waterstones and though it sounded worth a try.

I was basically looking for a holiday read, and I think I got my selection SPOT ON, if I do say so myself. On holiday you feel really optimistic, relaxed, positive etc. This book is all those things too, so it's the perfect fit. I easily bolted through the pages and before I knew it had knocked off the first 100+ pages on day 1. And, by the way, I wasn't say by a pool all day - this was in the afternoon whilst we were all chilling out after a day in the pool, out visiting the local town etc etc.

The book is so easy to read it's ridiculous. But that doesn't mean it's without substance. To my surprise, there were really insightful and interesting learning points from this experiment, and his reflections on what it had revealed about his life and personality were really good to read - it was honest, confessional in places and very genuine. Not everything went right by any means, and he got himself into a couple of sticky situations, not least in an Amsterdam gay club.

It was funny, sad, cringeworthy and lots of other things.

The big surprise was that, by the very end, it almost felt like I'd read an actual novel - the way it all turns out is surprisingly circular to start with, but there's also an nice ending that could have come straight from the pages of a book you'd buy at the airport. Plus, of course, it's been made into a film.
