Turns out that I love ...
Turns out that I love TV writers talking about themselves. Mindy Kaling, now Shonda Rhimes...TV writers are my kind of people. If you write for TV - assemble a memoir, narrate the audiobook, and just send it my way.eraderneely
Dont just stand like ...
Don't just stand like Wonder Woman, be Wonder Woman. I loved this book. It made me laugh, cry, break out in goose bumps, and really take a look inside of this introvert. I listened to the audiobook and don't think I would have enjoyed it as much had I read the book. Being able to hear her actual speeches was amazing.karenvg3
This memoir was inspir...
This memoir was inspiring, funny, heartfelt, and honest. Just to name a few attributes, though there are plenty more. I think that Shonda really let down her guard in this one and allowed herself to be truly vulnerable, which was important for the memoir to work. She accomplished this, and in turn, I fell in love with her. I fell in love with her spirit, her awkwardness, her sass. Even if you have no idea who Shonda Rhimes is, or maybe don't even watch her shows, this book is beyond all that, and I feel anyone could enjoy. It comes off almost as a self help book without truly trying to be preachy or...self helpish. You can get inspired by Rhimes' approach to a year of yes, and inspired by the outcome. You can get inspired in your own life by reading what can happen when you simply begin saying yes to things. I recommend this book to anyone who loves Shonda's TV shows, but beyond that, I recommend it to anyone who may feel like they are in a slump or a time of their life where the motivation isn't there. This can serve to show you that sometimes one simple word can change everything. Simply put, Inspiring!Kiddboyblue
