This is by far Danny Wallace's funniest book. I had to stop reading it outside the house because it had me in fits of hysterics too often. Read it. Lend it to your friends. Laugh, gasp, and 'Ahhh' together. It's really very, very good.
Yes, yes, I know this book has been made into a movie starring Jim Carrey, which may entirely taint my view of the work when I go see it. That being said, this was a delightfully engaging work built on a simple premise: "Say Yes More". That's it, that's all. Now, to be sure, saying 'yes' indiscriminately can get a person into trouble, and will at the very least cost a lot of money in handouts to persistent panhandlers. But it can also result in surprising opportunities that would never have occurred without the miracle of 'yes'. I love the philosophy, and can say that saying yes more can lead to some interesting places. Well written and frankly delightful.
Brilliantly funny. Please do not watch the film, it pales in comparrison. If you enjoy humour this book is a must.
Amazing true story by one gutsy and funny writer. It's a simple concept to say "Yes" to every question, but to really do it takes serious bravery. Danny tries to turn his life around by saying "Yes" to every question, no matter what, and the journey that takes him is unbelievable (but true!). I loved this book and wish it had gone on twice as long.
