Recently single, Danny Wallace was falling into loneliness and isolation. When a stranger on a bus advises, "Say yes more," Wallace vows to say yes to every offer, invitation, challenge, and chance.

In Yes Man , Wallace recounts his months-long commitment to complete openness with profound insight and humbling honesty. Saying yes takes Wallace into a new plane of existence: a place where money comes as easily as it goes, nodding a lot can lead to a long weekend overseas with new friends, and romance isn't as complicated as it seems. Yes eventually leads to the biggest question of all: "Do you, Danny Wallace, take this woman . . ."

Yes Man is inspiring proof that a little willingness can take anyone to the most wonderful of places.

Danny Wallace is in a rut. After meeting a man on a bus who suggests that he say “yes” to what life has to offer, Danny starts saying yes to everything, getting himself into some funny situations. An interesting look at how being positive can affect your life.

Great story about being positive, but there was too much reflection for my liking. I almost gave up half-way through, but I'm glad I persevered.

Excellent thought provoking book. Nothing like the Jim Carey movie.Lots of humour and even more pearls of wisdom. Read this book!

I originally avoided this movie because Jim Carey is often too much for me to handle but I quite enjoyed it!

Zooey Deschanel was absolutely adorable in this film. The scenes of her singing with her (imaginary) band the Munchausen by proxy were my favourite. Made me wish the band was real! Check out the soundtrack for the full songs if they manage to charm you like they did me.

"Some of the best things that have ever happened to you in life happened because you said yes to something. Otherwise things just sort of stay the same."
