Publisher's Summary

Bethenny Frankel's no-nonsense, tell-it-like-it-is personality won over countless fans, and made her a nationally best-selling author and the star of her own hit Bravo show Bethenny Getting Married? Now Bethenny opens up and shares the obstacles she overcame and the great success she has enjoyed while discovering how to approach life from “A Place of Yes”.

Bethenny’s path was not always clear as she overcame a difficult childhood, failed relationships, entrepreneurial efforts that never quite got off the ground, and lifelong money struggles. To deal with these challenges, Bethenny developed 10 rules for pursuing her goals with authenticity and drive, including:

  • Find Your Truth: Dig deep inside and figure out what is authentic for you, not anybody else.
  • Act On It: You don’t have to have a master plan. But unless you do something, you’ve done nothing.
  • Everything's Your Business: Treat every job, person, and experience as if it could lead to your next big opportunity.
  • Own It: If you do it, say it, think it—then own it. Stand up for yourself and fully acknowledge who you really are.

Each rule is illustrated with compelling, sometimes funny, sometimes outrageous examples that are pure Bethenny. It’s easy to say no, to say “I can’t”, to expect the worst, and to doubt yourself. But your life can be better than “not bad” or “good enough”. It can be amazing. And by putting Bethenny’s rules together, you can use them to be more successful, more fulfilled, healthier, and happier than ever before.

    Story
    "What is your tolerance level?"

    The good: she's broken a negative cycle and clearly describes the healthy behavior lead to a happier life. She makes some funny commentary on "manifesting" one's destiny.

    The bad: far too much complaining to listen to; I had to turn it off. I hung in as long as I could listening for pearls but I feel like I really made a poor choice spending credits on this book.

    "monotone, no feeling or enthusiasm"

    This book was not was I was looking for but the real reason for my review is because although this book was narrated by the author, it seemed like she had never heard the story before but was rather reading a manuscript for the first time. Her voice was mostly monotone and I had to really try to listen to the story. There was no feeling or enthusiasm. Maybe it would be a good book in print.

    "Wrong Category Perhaps"

    This book was far more Memoire/Bio than Personal Development. Most of the content is Bethenny's retelling of her personal life, which is fine, but I was expecting the content to be more general and focused on how to directly apply certain strategies like her previous books. This book is 80-85% about Bethanny's life and 15-20% focused on Personal Development items that the reader/listener might apply.

    If you are a huge Bethenny fan and want to know more about the finer personal details of how she became a successful entrepreneur and reality TV star - this book is definitely for you. It does feel, like another reviewer here wrote, like your girlfriend is sharing the intimate details of her life with you. However, if you are more interested in the Personal Development aspect and were hoping this would be inspirational or provide some process or set of guidelines you might apply to your own business or career I would suggest another selection. I felt a little cheated and annoyed when I got half-way through and still didn't feel like I was getting anything but a detailed timeline of Bethenny's life.

    Jilian Michaels new book, "Unlimited" was more along the lines of what I was expecting from this. The two are in the same genre here but very very different in their focus and application. I would also suggest anything and everything from Brian Tracy if you are looking for something to get fired up about and take things to the next level for yourself. Note: I am an unashamed and voracious Personal Dev junkie and I have most of the titles that you'll see when you visit that front category page here on audible. I have listened to them all (some multiple times to take notes). Huge Personal Dev nerd here :o)

    I would not have purchased this title if I knew that it was loaded with personal anecdotes and detailed information on every man Bethenny has dated for the past two decades or how she rose to the top in spite of her upbringing. Certainly Bethenny is successful. She's gorgeous, well spoken, and competitive. I was expecting more from this book. It lacks focus and falls short. Her Naturally Thin/Skinny Girl books, however, are 5 stars. I am still a fan, but this book, if it were physical would go into my donate pile.

    "Self-promoting"

    I like Bethenny on TV; she's funny and smart. The book comes across as self-gratifying. Even though she says it's not a memior, the book is not so much about "a place of yes" as about stories of her own upbringing, relationship and career struggles.

    "Love it"

    This book was great, I love that the author also narrated it. I like the personal stories and how relatable they are, and how the author give a different way of evaluating and approaching things in your life. A must read if you are looking for changes, or if you just need something positive to read.

    "Message is good, narration not so good"

    I admire Bethany and her success which is why I purchased the audiobook. The message and her rules for success are great motivation, but she read it like a robot. She read quick and without emotion so listening to her voice annoyed me.

    "Waste of time."

    This book travels along with all the reality television.... TRASH. I was not able to finish the book and will recommend people read this only if they are shallow and immature. It read like a teenagers diary and a sniveling one at that.

    "No thanks"

    Summery. Grow up in a dysfunctional family. Develop a semi sociopathic personality. Steamroll through good people life???s leaving destruction in your wake. Write a book about it. Sorry no thanks Bethenny. Live your life and I???ll live mine
