Yes Man Book Competition16 Dec 2008
By TNPihl (JCO Editor-In-Chief)
Jim Carrey Online is proud to bring you the "Yes Man" tie-in book competition. The book that inspired Jim Carrey's "Yes Man" Movie. Danny Wallace has written a whole new chapter about his adventures in Hollywood when they were filming the movie. The tie-in edition has Jim himself on the cover. We have got 6 books for this competition. Sponsored by publisher Ebury Press.
The producers had given me a trailer as big as my old flat, with a plasma screen and its own bedroom and bathroom. More exciting even than that, was the day I arrived to find my own director’s-style chair, with YES MAN on one side, and DANNY WALLACE on the other. I was suddenly a Hollywood bigshot with literally no experience or useful purpose. But it was great.
All you have to do to be in with a chance of winning one is answer the simple question below and email it us. Send an email to JCO at firstname.lastname@example.org.

'I, Danny Wallace, being of sound mind and body, do hereby write this manifesto for my life. I swear I will be more open to opportunity. I swear I will live my life taking every available chance. I will say Yes to every favour, request, suggestion and invitation. I WILL SWEAR TO SAY YES WHERE ONCE I WOULD SAY NO.'
Danny Wallace had been staying in. Far too much. Having been dumped by his girlfriend, he really wasn't doing the young, free and single thing very well. Instead he was avoiding people. Texting them instead of calling them. Calling them instead of meeting them. That is until one fateful date when a mystery man on a late-night bus told him to 'say yes more'. These three simple words changed Danny's life forever. Yes Man is the story of what happened when Danny decided to say YES to everything, in order to make his life more interesting. And boy, did it get more interesting.
This is the tie-in book that goes with the 2008 film of the Danny Wallace book - "Yes Man" - starring Jim Carrey and Zooey Deschanel, which is being released by Warner Bros in December 2008.
