Year of Yes - Shonda Rhimes

Shonda Rhimes is the incredibly talented creator and writer of the television shows Greys Anatomy, Private Practice, Scandal and producer of another show.  She is a busy lady working 10-12 hour work days and bringing up three adopted daughters.  An introvert, she realizes that she is good at saying No, and decides to push herself and say yes, opening herself up to new challenges.  Along the way, she begins to see that she begins to enjoy her life more, that she takes joy in experiencing the moments, rather than worrying and panicking when thrust into the limelight.

I enjoyed the book and understand her issues, it is hard often to be introverted in a world where being an extrovert is worshiped, so I understand her instinct to want to stay home on the couch.  I just couldn't help but feel a bit talked down to.  3/5
