The Yes man
« on: August 02, 2005, 10:09:01 am »
Has anyone else read the Yes man by Danny Wallace? I'm not sure if it's out in the US, but it's the story of when a man decides to say yes for six months, and see what happens. Very funny, very philosophical at times.

he's the guy that declared his flat an independant nation, If I see that yes man book i'll probably get it. Apparently his next project is to use modern technology to turn himself into a superhero :D
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

he didnt just say 'yes'. If he was asked a question with a yes/no answer he had to say 'yes'. That means any question from 'do you want fries with that?' to 'Would you like a knuckle sandwich?' (note: probably not questions asked in the book)

Just picked it up. 113 pages in, it's not the wacky anything-goes adventure that you'd think it was so far, but it's good enough to justify the price tag. Full review in another 250 pages.

EDIT: This is the best book I've ever read. Not done yet.

Finished not 10 minutes ago. This is easily one of the best books I've ever read that has ever been published. It's laugh out loud funny at times, but it's also very serious and wise at others. I would highly, HIGHLY recommend picking it up.
