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.

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!

I cannot express how much i loved reading this book and am now passing it on to every friend, member of my family, co-worker, aquaintance and passer by who will take it!

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!

i have just started reading this for the 2nd time (the first being a number of years ago), and although i dont remember the specific moments of the book, i am already reminded of the brilliance of it. its constantly funny, well written, and above all, a fun read.
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.

I've just rediscovered this book after it got buried on a bookcase for, according to the receipt I used as a bookmark, 9 years! I remember absolutely belly-laughing to bits of this the first time round and I'm pleased to report I enjoyed it every bit as much the second - OK, some of it is a tiny bit dated (self-rewinding VHS tapes anyone?), but the general themes and narrative are pretty timeless. I love Danny's style of writing (see, I'm on first name terms with him such is his friendly, chatty way!) and found it really easy to get swept along with his adventures. He always seems like quite a genuine bloke and you do get quite invested in things working out well for Danny the narrator/character. While it's not claiming to be a modern work of philosophy, the idea / encouragement to act positively and see life as a series of opportunities is attractive, and it's nice to see he included some of the bad results as well as the good to give the book a fairly rounded and realistic feel. The episode with the street artists portrait of him in Amsterdam had me giggling like an idiot to myself on the train home, which sums up the book really - don't take yourself, or it, too seriously, just enjoy it!
