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.Read more ›
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!
This is the funniest book I have read in a very long time and any book that makes me laugh out loud on nearly every page is a definite winner!
Danny has a unique and self-depricating style of writing with fantastic dry humour. Every chapter brought a new adventure - my personal favourite must be the Amsterdam adventure due to Danny's little canine friend! haha Although i loved Barcelona & Marc too!
I challenge anyone not to smile whilst reading this book - it is such a breath of fresh air. Get hold of a copy now!
Si A Todo!
in my opinion, the preface of a book is one of the worst parts (just beaten by the waste of ink that is the "acknowledgements" section) but i read the prefaces anyway. and this one was an example of the greatness of the narrative your about to read. the first preface ive ever enjoyed. and the book has already got me by the mangos, and i cant wait to read on.
