    It will change your life! A Must read!

    I have heard Bryan speak 2 times, he made me think, but most of all he made me act to change my my life and rethink my perspective. This latest time he spoke about this book. I immediately came home and searched my local book store for a copy. Could not find it on the shelves so I ordered it. WOW once again I can see how to improve my thinking and perspecitive will make MY GOOD LIFE RULE! This book is practical, and common sense stuff that we forget. It is easy to apply with the simple steps listed at each of the chapters in the end.
    I will continue to make MY GOOD LIFE RULE by applying these principles listed in this book, as well as pass it on to my children (MS and HS), husband, and coworkers, because we can be contagious in spirit, of the Good Life Rules we all will feel and act much better towards eachother and ourselves.

    Thanks AGAIN Bryan!

    Useful ideas fo making the good life rule

    This book offers a wide variety of pointers and ideas on how each of us can be a better person. The ideas are useful, easy to understand and applicable in every day life. <BR/><BR/>I especailly like Bryan's easy to read chapter endings where he summarizes steps to help each of us be a better person and let the good life rule as he so aptly puts it. The "no list" is one idea we all can implement today - I know I have.<BR/><BR/>Try it you are bound to like it!
