Yes Man | [Danny Wallace]

Yes Man

Danny Wallace had been staying in. Far too much. Having been dumped by his girlfriend, he really wasn't doing the young, free and single thing very well. Instead he was avoiding people. Texting them instead of calling them. Calling them instead of meeting them. That is until one fateful date when a mystery man on a late-night bus told him to 'say yes more'. These three simple words changed Danny's life forever. Yes Man is the story of what happened when Danny decided to say YES to everything.

    "Life Changing audio book"

    I bought this audio book in preperation for watching the movie with my wife.
    I listened to the book over a few days when I was working away from home, staying in hotels...
    It is amazing, there are so many things in the book that everyone will relate to.

    I was so so so excited when i went to see the movie with my wife after hearing this great book.
    The movie is good, but it is incomparible to the genius that is this book.
    I recomend everyone gets this book. It is 10000% better than the movie!

    "More Maybe than Yes"

    Firstly, I want to say that this book is at times quite witty and well read. However, I do not agree with other reviewers that it was a 'life changing' experience or anything close. The whole book can be summed up in the mantra that the book itself states so frequently - 'say yes more'. If that advice is life changing than I must be missing something.

    I did enjoy parts of the book, but other parts were slow, repetitive and fairly predictable. The fact that this is supposedly a true story gave it some interest, but ultimately I found it quite a laboured journey and one that was fairly un-satisfying in the finish. I suppose if it actually was a true story than that is why nothing more incredible happened. I was expecting something more akin to 'The Dice Man' by Luke Rhinehart (an excellent read by the way).

    Anyway, to sum up - it is an OK book. (It passed the time on a long drive to Scotland in my case.) However, I would not really recommend it. Sorry Danny, but it?s a Maybe from me rather than a Yes.

    "Not life-changing but a nice listen"

    I feel a bit left out of the hype, as when I told my friends that I was listening the this book the other day, they all started ranting and raving about how 'life-changing' and profound it is, although I didn't find it so significant...perhaps because I generally say yes to most things anyway, as long as they sound like fun!

    However I did find it a gentle and easy listen, read well by the author and with some moments that made me smile and even laugh.

    The audiobook's heart is definitely in the right place and its principals are wonderful, although I just felt there was something missing somehow...though every listener would definitely do well to take away the ethos of this audiobook and start to smile, perform random acts of kindness and declare a big fat YES more!

    "Definitely not life changing"

    I find it difficult to relate to the life changing reviews of this book. It's ok, a pleasant enough listen, but it didn't grab me and pull me in. It just bimbled along.
    Say yes a bit more. Maybe if you're the kind of person who says no a lot, then this might come as a revelation, but for me it was just ok.

    "Very original and Funny"

    I loved the story line. Danny has a unique style and it is funny. It is so fresh and original that a Hollywood film has been produced based on it with the same name "Yes man" acknowledging the idea from this book. I remained engrossed in it until I finished it and at no point it felt boring or repetitive. You are involved in Danny's world and not at any moment you sympathise with him. Even if you don't agree with him for the things he gets involved with in the story, you enjoy through his experiences. It makes you reflect on the life around you and invites you to embrace new challenges. There is an unexpected twist before the finale, which is beautifully drawn. I thoroughly enjoyed it and would love to listen to it again.

    "What a good listen"

    I have a feeling this would have made a great book to read, but I have no doubt it was made all the better for being read by the Author Danny Wallace.

    He truly brought it to life and took you along on his adventure - it never felt like he was just reading his book out but telling you the story of a year in his life.

    It was laugh out loud funny in places and really charming and sensitive in others - just a real fun read/listen all round.

    A real work of art and a great example of what an audiobook can bring over reading a book.

    "Simply Brilliant!"

    Danny hit upon such a simple and yet life changing idea with this. The book is well written, funny and an eye opener to what could be if we all said YES a little bit more often. I've listened to this a few times now and have not tired of it, it's a brilliant listen. I've recommended this to friends and family and would highly urge you too to check it out!

    "Worth a Listen? Yes!"

    I only listened to this once but hey, rather like pouring spaghetti from a pan, I found myself listening to it all in one go.
    Danny Wallace has an engaging way of telling his preposterous tales and he takes one along as a willing sap. This is long flight/beach holiday type listening but still manages to provide some pause for thought. Lovely stuff!
