I thoroughly enjoyed "The Rules of Life". It's one of those books you can read, put down, come back to and take up right where you left off without missing a thing. Good solid information and will be of use as a 'life-time' reference to assist through the hard times and life in general. I liked that it has short chapters, easily referenced in the table of contents and written in a style that is almost conversational. It's like you are sitting down with a close friend to talk about what's happening in your life. Enjoyable!!

I found this book very thought provoking. It was a very good book to read with the starting of the new year. I thought about the way i am/was doing some things & how I could change some things for the better!!

I am actually still reading this book. I pretty much live by these rules so the rules to me are common sense mostly. The book is fairly long and I can't imagine what more can be said. It is a bit repetitive.

I enjoyed reading this book & have told others that it is a book they just have to read & apply to their everyday lives. There are so many things that makes one a better person if you just do as recommended.

Better than the Bible for day to day advice on how to be the Best you can be. "Oh! of course!". "Why didn't I think of that?" "Oh! I can do that!" "I never thought about it like that!" Easy to read, and you'll find yourself telling others to read it.

In our busy lives this little book was a great reminder of how to keep your life in perspective for me it was like sharpening your pencil. The pencil with use becomes dull & needs to be sharpened or refreshed. This book was like that for me & my life. Also a great book to share with a graduate from High School or perhaps college or someone who has recently been promoted a work. and all around great book.

I didn't know what I would get except for the obvious title, but it is much more. Interesting, a bit entertaining, and broken down into different categories for lifes challenges. I would recommend this to anyone.

Richard Templar (pen name) is an &quot;astute observer of human behavior&quot;. No doubt an astute observer of &quot;snake oil sales&quot;. Notice how he has success  with his first book then  pushes out as many books as possible on numerous other subjects. Looks like a true expert on just about anything. The problem here is everything thing he has written has all been written before and all Templar did is repackage  and sell it. Most who read this know it for what it is. Congrats to Richard Templar for making it to the top of &quot;snake oil sales&quot;  and a Brit to boot.
