Product description

Review

Revealing and delightful.
" New York Daily News""

"Year of Yes "is as fun to read as Rhimes' TV series are to watch. Her authorial voice is fresh and strong."
"Los Angeles Times""

Rhimes is, unsurprisingly, a fantastic memoirist: Her writing is conversational and witty and lyrical, inflected with the supple human breathiness you might expect from a person who spends her days writing dialogue. It features lots of great punchlines It features occasional, chatty, second-person asides [It] is also in many ways a side-door self-help book [with] pieces of advice that concern not just Rhimes s readers, but everyone. Year of Yes is a book about the shifts taking place in Hollywood right now, and in the world right now, in the guise of a friendly memoir. It is, like Shondaland itself, making a statement. It is insisting that it is time for the people who used to be invisible to come forward and be seen.

Revealing and delightful.
New York Daily News"

There s real value in the experiences Rhimes shares When, for example, she discusses learning to take better care of herself, the memoir feels honest, raw and revelatory.
The Washington Post"

A sincere and inspiring account of saying yes to life Rhimes tells us all about it in the speedy, smart style of her much-loved TV shows. She's warm, eminently relatable, and funny Like a cashmere shawl you pack just in case, Year of Yes is well worth the purse space, and it would make an equally great gift. Rhimes said "yes" to sharing her insights . Following her may not land you on the cover of a magazine, but you'll be glad you did.
Kirkus"

If you enjoy the rapid-fire dialogue of her characters, reading this book will feel like home. Rhimes opens up, and inspires, discussing her personal experiences as a sister, daughter, mother, friend and boss tempered with biting insights on societal expectations of women [a] blend of biography and badassery.
Ebony.com"

Rhimes guides the reader through her transformative yearlong experiment, each chapter dealing with a different personal challenge for herself, and she lets us deep inside her brain, carefully laying out all of her fears and self-doubt candid and friendly, almost as if the two of you were catching up over drinks.
Slate.com"

A mix of humor and conversational real talk written with dashes of Oprah-esque inspiration but the no-B.S. frankness of, say, Dr. Cristina Yang from Grey's Anatomy Even if Rhimes's fame and career don't make her an everywoman, she writes with an everywomanly sensibility her words brim with such life that by the end of the book, some readers may find themselves wanting to say yes to more things, too.
TVInsider.com"

Rhimes' familiar, conversational writing style makes the book a more accessible Lean In, a self-help book and personal journal all rolled into one.
