Book Review and GIVEAWAY - Yes or No


Every day, you’re faced with choices that require “yes” or “no” decisions. And there are times you feel paralyzed – either from fear of making the wrong choice or because of too many seemingly equal options. Social entrepreneur Jeff Shinabarger helps you break through these moments of tension and transition with proven ways to move towards good choices. Discover the opportunity of becoming a decision maker as you learn the strength in saying “no”, develop your personal philosophy of choice, and start using a practical process for making good choices even in difficult situations!

Jeff Shinabarger is a social entrepreneur and author of More or Less. Jeff has a vision to make Atlanta a center for social innovation and has personally engaged in over 100 start-ups solving problems. His work has been featured by CNN, USA Weekend, Atlanta Journal Constitution, Huffington Post, Christianity Today, Coca-Cola, Relevant Magazine and Chicago Sun Times. He is the co-founder of Q and creatively led Catalyst for 8 years. Jeff and his wife, Andre, live in East Atlanta Village and have two children.


This book is so packed full of information! However, the author didn't make it like a text book where you were snoozing half-way through. He brought stories from his own life and from the lives of others into the book and it was so interesting to read how making the decision between "no and yes" really has an impact on our lives.

Mr. Shinabarger has done some really amazing things in his life and it's by stopping to really consider his decisions that have helped him. The greatest thing he always stresses is to stop and pray about these decisions - go off on your own if need be - and really consider what God wants you to do.

He also shares the different kinds of personalities and decision making styles there are and how to make yours work for you. I found this incredibly helpful as I really didn't know what kind of style I had when it came to making decisions, but now I do. I know the positives and the negatives of this style and how to make it all work for me. Be sure and watch the video imbedded in this post to see more about your own decision making style.

He also discusses one of the main things that holds many of us back - including me - and that's fear. I gained so much insight and confidence by reading this. Also, knowing I'm not the only one who has fears about doing things, was quite relieving! It just really helped me to take that step forward in something I've been dragging my feet about for a long while.

This is such a great book! It will definitely be on my shelf as I know that when I need some guidance as to whether to say yes or no, I can go to this book and get it. I highly recommend this book and give it 5 out of 5 stars!
