    I like the spirit behind this book and I like the author a lot, but I really disliked the tone of the writing. I just felt like: get to the point already....

I wanted to root for her like Tyra, but kept feeling like she was just meandering and braggin...

    Shonda Rhimes' heartfelt memoir about the power of embracing who you are and having the courage to set aside what you are not.Though outwardly successful, Shonda was miserable. Between over-working and her introverted tendencies, she turned down every invitation and social event. The ones that she w...

    Shonda Rhimes would make an incredible teacher. The world could use a teacher like her—eloquent, understanding, interesting, bold, and so very open-minded. I want her to be my teacher. Don’t get me wrong, there are many good teachers at my uni, but Shonda Rhimes has so much to say and such...
