The first thing you should know about this slim, wonderful book is that it is not a novel, something that is immediately apparent, but is instead just what it states it is: A compilation of Rules fashioned by Jack Reacher, the iconic protagonist of 17 books by Lee Child, as well as a new eponymous film, and culled from all those novels.

All “rules” included will be familiar to the many fans of Mr. Child’s creation, but that doesn’t mean that they don’t bring smiles of recognition, and pleasure. The headings include such Rules as “Be Prepared,” “Breaking and Entering,” “Choose Your Weapons,” and 55 others.

There are a number of things within these pages under the heading of “Things you’ll never hear Reacher Say,” including “No more coffee for me” and “Call me on my cell,” guaranteed to elicit those smiles. There are tidbits such as instructions for “The best way to break a finger,” and “If you get a lift, give a destination. Saying ‘anywhere’ sounds like you’re a drifter who wants to go home with them,” enlightening if nothing else. There are also many factual sections that are very interesting, which many readers may know in a superficial way and which are given more detail here, e.g., The Wimbledon Cup [the Marine Sniper School competition]; West Point; the “10-“ Codes used by the Military Police; and “A Medley of Military Acronyms,” which includes The Patriot Act, which I never realized was an acronym: “Uniting and Strengthening America by Providing Appropriate Tools Required to Intercept and Obstruct Terrorism Act.”

These and others like them comprise the contents of this delightful book, sure to be a favorite of Reacher fans [“The Reacher Creatures,” as they are fondly known], an introduction for those not yet among that group, and a perfect holiday gift for members of both. Highly recommended.

    I really enjoy these books and the Jack Reacher character.  Howe

    I really enjoy these books and the Jack Reacher character.  However, I will never go see any Jack Reacher book with Tom Cruise as  Jack.
    Are you kidding me.  6'5" 250 and Cruise is playing him.  
    Who cast him, the head of Scientology?
    Ridiculous.  Lee Child what were you thinking?
    Keep writing great books but get the right person to play Jack.

    Definitely tongue-in-cheek. I was not expecting a story so I found this book to be quite enjoyable. Just imagine Reacher dictating his rules to live by, and you get this book. The real question is: can Tom Cruise accurately portray the larger-than-life Jack Reacher, no middle name, in the upcoming motion picture?

    Why Tom Cruise?

    Simple. Cruise is a producer; he put up money to make the movie.

    No way Tom could be Reacher. I didn't even go see the movie just for that reason.
