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.

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.
