    One Reply to “Yes Man”

    1. I am a bit saddened by all the appalling reviews that the movie Yes Man has been getting I mean, I was a bit apprehensive when I heard that Jim Carrey was going to play the lead role and that it was going to be set in America instead of Britain and that they d essentially written a whole new story but, well, I wasn t really paying much attention at the time, so I remained optimistic.But since it s come out, from what I hear it s or less Liar, Liar reworked, and that s kind of depressing.So anyw [...]

    2. THIS BOOK WAS GREAT I loved it Danny is funny, quick witted and VERY British He runs into someone on a bus who tells him he should say yes after being in a bit of a rut He decides to take this guy literally which leads him into a lot of scrapes and awkward situations which allow us to laugh quiet a bit it would never work unless you had the type of job he does where he can come and go as he pleasesbut the message is a great one Put yourself out there good find i love Powell s.

    3. I maintain that Danny Wallace is a silly bitch His antics are awesome to read about, but I get the impression if I was a friend of his I d be like YOU SPAZ, or since I d be British YOU WANKER.This is as funny as the movie which is hilaaaiours but in a Britishy way This book won t really, I don t think, change most people s lives, as one of the cover review claims but it will amuse you Greatly Though a few times I genuinely was disturbed by the lack of intelligence shown by Mr.Wallace I mean, ye [...]

    4. I will not recommend this book to anyone You ll have to discover it on your own I don t even know why I read it Except that my friend, Abby, had it on her list and really liked it Something pushed me towards it Without even thinking, I got on and bought a used copy Going against my better judgment, I said Yes to this book.This book is not what it appears to be It appears to be a British humour don t get me wrong, I like British humour with a u , The Year of Living Biblically esque, full of langu [...]

    5. I made it 75% of the way through and then decided my time was too precious to be irritated with this author for one minute The concept of the book is really interesting and he has a few excellent examples of times he said yes that really forwarded his life experiences However, I just got tired of hearing about all the times he said yes to credit card offers or spam e mail It would have been one thing if he d said to his readers I realize this is silly, but it s part of my project Instead he tol [...]

    6. But the happiest people are the ones who understand that good things occur when one allows them to I was on the verge of something But sometimes to look forward, you have to look back Before I d thought of those as self contained little moments I d never really considered that they might be beginnings, that they might lead somewhere, that they might be for the best The closed mind is a disease You need to have an open mind otherwise life will just pass you by He was someone who had it all, but h [...]

    7. Let me start by saying, this book is nothing like the movie thank goodness Secondly, I need to confess that I agreed to read this book because I am a bit of a stick in the mud about the whole yes to new experiences rhetoric While I am definitely up for new experiences, I am already bargaining with myself over finite resources of time and energy to spend on things that I know I want to do already The prospect of having those resources wasted by someone else s whims makes me feel a little ill HOWE [...]

    8. The film version of this book stunk In no way did the Hollywood version of this story translate the histeria and the heart of this story I read this while living in London, when Danny Wallace was really just up and coming He had made it when he got a meme going through his audience of reader from Join Me through tiny want ads in the newspaper Read this book, especially if you are an anglophile Never, ever watch the terrible film.

    9. This book takes me back to when I lived in London and the concept of this seemed totally possible I loled many a time which took me by surprise, I didn t think I would like it this much I couldn t really get into the other Danny Wallace books unfortunately, however this book is def a 5 5.

    10. Sometimes, you read a book that just makes you happy over and over again, and you are always excited to pick it up, and you regularly laugh out loud while reading it Then you get so into it that you decide to try doing exactly what the author does in the book for a couple days Then you forget in about 10 minutes and get off track Oh, and THEN Then you decide to watch the Jim Carrey movie that was inspired by the book you are enjoying so much, and you re mad You re mad because the movie is dumb, [...]

    11. Okay So I was travelling back from Norwich to North Wales, facing a six hour train journey, still tired, not ready to face Roberto Bolano, and from within the shop window I saw a copy of Danny Wallace s Yes Man The night before, with an evening to kill in Norwich, I went to the cinema with no idea what was playing, and so I made a decision buy a ticket for whatever the next film starting was That film was Yes Man, with Jim Carrey The film, it had its moments, and Zooey Deschanel was gorgeous, bu [...]

    12. I read this book while travelling around Europe a friend I was travelling with was actually reading it at the beginning of our trip, and after hearing her laughing and giggling as well as feeling compelled to read out large chunks to me as she read it made me desperate for her to finish so I could borrow it It did not disappoint Very funny, but with a moral too, this is an amusing, easy read which also leaves you thinking about your own life and how you could learn from the book This is somethin [...]

    13. Forgive me, but this review is based on the memory of a book that I got from Shepherd s Bush library over two years ago, but boy, what a memory I don t think I ve ever felt as exhilerated after finishing a book before A bit of a strange one to catagorize from what I recall this is a memoir but with a very fictional prose style, making the whole thing seem very unbelievable, but from all accounts the details are all fact Radio producer Danny Wallace is offered some advice by a stranger say yes , [...]

    14. This book was both moving and HOWLINGLY funny After meeting a man on a bus who may or may not have been Jesus, Buddha, Maitreya the World Teacher, or all three, Danny Wallace decides to say yes to everything asked of him for one year He gets a bad haircut, is hypnotized by the world s only hypnotic dog, goes to Amsterdam and gets stoned with a guy named Jahn, and buys a mint green Nissan Figaro He also meets dozens of new people, gets a huge promotion, has a lot fun, and finds true love It help [...]

    15. Mein erster Wallace Der Schreibstil ist wunderbar locker und der Humor fantastisch britisch Er ist einer meiner absoluten Lieblingsautoren Die Idee mit dem Ja Experiment ist toll Hab so beim Lesen lachen m ssen, das ich verwunderte Blicke aus meiner Umgebung erntete.Wer bereits den Film gesehen hat, der Ja Sager, sollte sich davon nicht abschrecken lassen Das Buch ist viel besser Fand den Film selbst etwas lahm Dieses Buch hat mich auf den Geschmack gebracht mehr von Danny Wallace zu lesen Und i [...]

    16. I don t think I have ever laughed so hard at a book Out loud, mind you This book is witty, brilliant, and best of all based on real experiences Inspiring for the long term, it s in my list of personal bibles Two cautions 1 language warning, for those who care, and 2 too much in one sitting and Wallace s humor can get almost grating because it s so intense Having said that Read this book Say yes.

    17. I must admit that I actually preferred the movie adaptation to the book itself and its not often I say that I did read the book first before the movie but I didn t find it hilarious like a lot of people said It was funny in places but a lot of it just seemed a bit ridiculous.

    18. It s Eat, Pray, Love on testosterone and humor Adored it My gut hurts from laughing so hard, yet in there somewhere it was poignant and important And the answer is Yes.

    19. It s a great idea The last 20 pages are brilliant But on the other 380 pages to get there, I had very often to resist the urge to throw this book against a wall It drags too long And partially it s simply stupid Anyway, the idea is good And yes, we all should say yes much often Yes

    20. If you ve read the bad reviews of the Yes Man movie, don t let it stop you from reading this even if you re American and therefore your copy of the book has Jim Carrey skipping on the cover.After Danny Wallace realized he was being anti social and a man on the bus told him to say yes , he resolved to say yes to everything, no matter what kind of a situation it put him in Although he ends up telling a man in a bar that yes, he was looking at his girlfriend, Danny quickly realizes that his life is [...]

    21. I wanted to finish this book, but it seems I got stuck about halfway through and couldn t move forward My favorite parts were the brief synopsis at the beginning of every chapter such as Chapter 2 In which Daniel becomes increasingly excited and Chapter 8 In which Daniel lands himself in a spot of bother I have decided any sentence that starts with In which will be funny On the other hand, Daniel s feigned innocence at the lack of sincerity behind email schemes made me want to scream I mean, com [...]

    22. A man recently dumped by his girlfriend stops going out much, spends most of his time watching tv, and generally sits around moping Then, one day, the man sitting next to him on the bus mutters to himself, Say yes From then onwards, our man decides to say yes to every offer, suggestion, and invitation that comes his way for the next few months Wallace s novel quickly becomes dull and repetitive once our hero keeps on acting upon Internet scams, travelling to far off locations obeying the travel [...]

    23. DNF p 155.Yes Man was pretty hilarious and philosophical the first few chapters After that, I had to stop every few pages to marvel at the narrator s stupidity deliberate or otherwise I m glad he s got a sensible friend in Ian who tried to talk him unsuccessfully out of his Yes Man project In an attempt at positivity after receiving an advice from a stranger on a bus, we see how the Danny navigates through his life for months after he d decided to literally say yes to everything from delivering [...]

    24. I thought hoped this book would be like AJ Jacobs book, The Know It All Unfortunately, it lacked the dorky charm and sincerity that book had in spades The premise of this book is that the author, a BBC producer, must say yes to all requests made of him for a certain period of time While there were some very funny moments, the whole charade seemed both contrived, overly preachy, and, by the middle, stale The author s feigned innocence about all of the spam he received was particularly hard to rea [...]

    25. Well, where to start The premise of this book is that Danny Wallace goes through life saying no, until some stranger on a bus tells him to say yes .Ok, nice idea Except it goes completely and utterly ridiculous It s a true story, but I have to wonder what kind of idiot would say yes to things that get him in fights and end up with him being in a supermarket in Amsterdam Only in the last 70 pages or so did this book become less annoying, but then it went from being annoying to being predictable.F [...]

    26. Also ich habe das Lesen jetzt nach knapp der H lfte abgebrochen, da ich lieber mit anderen B chern weitermacheIch bin mit dem Protagonisten einfach nicht warm geworden, da er mir einfach zu d mlich war und ich mir einen ernsteren Umgang mit dem ganzen Ja Sagen gew nscht h tte Einige Geschichten waren ja wirklich witzig, aber gr tenteils fand ich sein Gelaber einfach anstrengend.Ich hatte mir vom Buch mehr erhofft, aber werde es die Tage in einer ffentlichen B cherkiste abgeben, vielleicht freut [...]

    27. This book started off with a bang, grabbing my interest and making me laugh Then, it dragged on And on And on I was quite relieved when it finally came to a conclusion, to be honest.The concept is fabulous And, quite a few of the adventures mostly the ones at the beginning are hilarious However, I found he narrator annoying Is he really a complete simpleton, or is it just done in an incredibly facetious way I was torn between thinking it was put on, and thinking the narrator was a complete idiot [...]

    28. So this book was uplifting, hilarious, and inspiring There were some parts I read where I literally laughed out loud which was often on public transportation in the morning The only reason it didn t get 5 stars was because I didn t like the part about the Challenger, and the book could have been a lot shorter.But I loved that this is a true story, and that Danny actually did end up saying yes to all these experiences He s only a couple years older than me, which makes me wonder if I should start [...]

    29. I didn t even finish the book I see in the ratings that everyone is giving it 4 stars but honestly I don t see the excitement in it I find it very slow and the story line just seems a bit silly Some guy on a bus says say yes and then Danny proceeds do say yes to every single thing It was slightly annoying by the end i can see how this book could be inspirational but it just isn t for me

    30. I love this book A story like this could so easily feel contrived, but it never does in the hands of Danny Wallace s warm, friendly voice enjoy that mixed metaphor, there There s real heart to this story, along with humour and some surprising wisdom.

    31. Forget the silly movie with Jim Carrey The book is outright prolonged laugh out loud until you spit out your coke funny I m serious No, I m not serious I m seriously not serious This book is funny You will laugh until you pee And it s British The movie is not British Maybe that s the problem.

    32. Okay so I picked up this book as a really beaten one in a bookstore for only two dollars, I remember hearing about the movie but I didn t know that there was a book and what exactly is the book and movie about, so since I haven t seen a movie I will only be reviewing the book and not compare it to said movie even though there s not much to compare since they are really different Anyhow to answer the author s questions Yes I picked it up because of Jim Carrey on the front page but at the same tim [...]

    33. Danny decides to say Yes in his life, in fact he writes himself a manifesto and gets himself into a contract to say Yes for the rest of the year or else face the Punishment from his mate Ian at the end of the trial And this really is saying Yes to everything from internet spam to Help the Aged chuggers on the street and various socially awkward situations It made me realise, for one, how many things people get invited to out of politeness that are really not proper invitations at all Bits of th [...]

    34. My review from dwjjones1Technically can be seen as the Sequel to Join Me as it finds Danny on a low ebb after the events of Join Me He s no longer with Hanne, ignoring family and friends and worst of all not even heading to the pub for a pint He s gotten used to the word No, and as a result he is going nowhere.That all changes when he meets a random person on the bus who has three words of advice Say Yes More And Danny does for the next year he tries to say yes to everything with the occasional [...]

    35. Danny Wallace has, shall we say, a certain weakness for what his ex girlfriend Hanne calls stupid boy projects he started a cult for fun, he went looking for the Center of the Universe, he and his friend Dave Gorman went on a worldwide quest to find all the Dave Gormans on the planet so perhaps we can excuse his closest friends for believing that his unusual behavior was just another stupid boy project gone horribly wrong But this time, Danny believes, is different He s trying out a whole new wa [...]

    36. This is such an enjoyable listen, I would really recommend it, even though it is an abridged version of the book I have had previous bad experience with abridged versions The story includes both great humour and thoughtful reflection on the the impact that saying yes to things can have The delivery of the story by Danny Wallace comes across as heartfelt and self deprecating This is balanced very effectively with the use of humour to prevent the story from coming across as soppy In a good way, th [...]

    37. I am a fan of Danny Wallace s philosophy on life I love his humor and his enthusiasm for his boy projects This book does not disappoint He says yes to everything for a year and gets into some real messes some of them dangerous, some of them touching, all of them funny I laughed out loud throughout the majority of the book I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoyed Join Me or likes situational humor Cheers Danny

    38. What an interesting concept Say yes Author Danny Wallace s life was changed by those three small words, so much so that he wrote a book about it, which was made into a movie starring Jim Carrey haven t seen it yet The book is hilarious at times, surprising and insightful, but beyond that, it really made me re evaluate the power of saying yes to new experiences and challenges Should you read this book YES

    39. I can t understand how this book has an average rating on higher than 4.0 The author is a paranoid, gullible, uninteresting pansy and I found it hard to feel any sympathy for him His willful obtuseness about internet scams was annoying rather than funny.The book s message was good and all, but it s nothing that anyone who s seen The Dead Poets Society hasn t heard a million times before.

    40. 1 15 2008 I just finished this book and I have to say that it is the funniest thing I ve ever read Although I was put off by the abundance of vulgar language, I did learn some new British swear words so it was a learning experience Some other things I learned are that the British form of the game Clue is called, Cluedo and that England, N Ireland, Scotland, and Wales make up the United Kingdom.I really liked how it ended on a positive and sentimental note and that everything really was happily e [...]

    41. Some people need to learn how to say no , but others definitely need to learn how to say yes Especially if that yes is not going to lead them down a road of hurt or temptation or downright illegality Danny Wallace shares his nonfiction tale with us about how he is told to Say yes by a man on a bus and he takes it, quite literally, to heart Danny starts his tale by discussing with us in a rather easy going, informal manner that he recently had broken up with his girlfriend, Hanne, and had spent [...]

    42. I laughed out loud and found parts funny enough to explain why I was laughing to my coworkers even though it took a bit of explaining to do It s good because we can relate to how when you are not feeling depressed exactly, you can shut people and things out of your life Well he fixes it and I recommend the book if you are saying No a lot, for no real good reason.

    43. Yes Man by Danny Wallace388 pages Did you see the film, Yes Man, with Jim Carrey Well this book is what the film is loosely based off and I do mean loosely And while I enjoy the film, if I had choose, of course the book would win hands down In both the film and the book, the main man says yes to everything in an ability to see life in a different way and that s where the similarities end In the book Danny Wallace finds himself in quite the slump in life when a stranger says something that will c [...]

    44. It s incredible how a few words from someone you hardly know can have an impact on your life This book really is inspirational If you follow me on twitter my blog fascistkillingblog you will know that I am currently battling chronic anxiety I think to just say yes could prove a better solution than any To drop all my worries and do it, is an idea that could change my life Of course, the book discusses the lack of freedom yes brings, and the power that is no It is very philosophical and is a ver [...]
