The mega-talented creator of Greys Anatomy and Scandal and executive producer of How to Get Away With Murder chronicles how saying YES for one year changed her lifeand how it can change yours, too.

I don't think I can explain how much I loved this book. The audiobook is the absolute best. It came at a good time in my life and has been an inspiration for some of the changes I'm making in my own life. Also, I'm pretty sure I'm supposed to be friends with Shonda, since she has lots of friends named Chris but no personal librarian yet :) ( )

More memoir than self help, but still so so so good. ( )

Marking this abandoned since I have really no desire to finish it. Loyal Shondaland follower, but she just doesn't get personal enough. I feel like most of this could be found out via the Internet. ( )

I super loved this book. I'm a big Grey's Anatomy fan so when I read "how to dance it out" I knew I had to read it. I loved getting to see Shonda's transformation through her words. Wonderful. ( )
