Bethenny Frankel A Place of Yes

I don't know about you but Bethenny has always been one of my favorite housewives and readers seem to love her! I haven't read any of her books but this week in my Simon & Schuster newsletter I found this! So what do you think? Will A Place of Yes be on your to read list or are you over reality tv?

The New York Times bestselling author of Naturally Thin and The Skinnygirl Dish, Bethenny Frankel takes us on an empowering journey to A PLACE OF YES

BETHENNY FRANKEL'S no-nonsense, tell-it-like-it-is personality won over countless fans, and made her a nationally bestselling 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 ten 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.


  1. I loveeee Bethenny! I haven't read any of her books, but I've watched her shows. Maybe I should consider picking this one up?

  2. I never heard of Bethenny before, but the book sounds good. ;)

  3. Sounds like an interesting read. I have seen a couple of episodes of housewives but didn't know Bethenny was a writer.

  4. Thanks for this review! I am such a HUGE Bethenny fan, too! She is smart and funny and I am loving her latest show a great deal.

  5. I love Bethenny and I definitely will read her book 'A Place of YES'. I'm a huge believer in thinking positive and any tips which are out there are more than welcome. She's a great personality and I hope her humour will mirror in her book writing style. It's not super easy to get the book in the UK, so I will have to order from Ebay or get it on my next US trip.

  6. I LOVEEEEEE BETHENNY!! Her honesty and humor makes me her biggest California fan! She says it like it is, and she is very successful even though she's had a hard childhood. If she can do it, SO CAN I!!! =)
