In 2016, Rhimes’s book “The Year of Yes: How to Dance It Out, Stand in the Sun and Be Your Own Person” became a New York Times bestseller.
Part-memoir, part-inspirational book, Rhimes details her process to fight her introvert tendencies by saying “yes” to everything for an entire year.
Page after page reveals deeply personal revelations. Rhimes talks about her decision to say yes to herself by saying no to marriage, her weight loss journey and her search for balance in life. In between confessions, she also reveals her intense ambitions and gruelling work ethic.
“I am not lucky,” she writes. “You know what I am? I am smart, I am talented, I take advantage of the opportunities that come my way and I work really, really hard. Don’t call me lucky. Call me a badass.”
A true bossgirl book, if ever there was one.
