Are you looking for some simple yet effective ways to improve your life, build more rewarding relationships, and boost your personal and professional productivity? It doesn't take rocket science to achieve these goals, according to former NASA engineer and international president emeritus of The Navigators, Dr. Jerry White. All it takes is the application of a few time-tested principles! In Rules To Live By, White shares 52 principles - one for each week of the year - that are designed to help you lead a more successful and satisfying life. He divides these principles into three sections - A Better You, Relationship Rules, and Enhancing Your Work And Effectiveness. The book's structure allows you to hone in on the principles that interest you the most, and to read and apply the rules in any order. When I first began reading this book, I was concerned that some of the content might be too simplistic for some readers. By the time I finished the book, however, I decided that the beauty of this book lies in its simplicity. The book is an easy read, which means there is something to be learned, appreciated, and applied by everyone. I found the book quite enjoyable, and recommend it both for personal use and for gift giving.

52 Principles For a Better Life: Rules to Live By by Jerry White is a new breed of self help themed books, in a repackaged simple to read format. It is analagous to a self help outline- a brief summary of common sense, helpful pointers to leading a socially well-adjusted, and fulfilling, moral life style. About a page or two is dedicated to each of the 52 principles, which are in turn grouped into three main categories: "A Better You", "Relationship Rules", and "Enhancing Your Work and Effectiveness". In otherwords, this is a somewhat like a social skills book written for adults. Some of the topics range from the trivial, such as "Let Magazines Sit For Two Weeks" to the poltically correct, yet ever popular health conscious trend "Keep Yourself Fit", "Eat Right" and the finally the arbitrary filler, "Remember Your Past" and "What Not to do"- the former of which is simply a list of suggestions that the author either could not fit in elsewhere or felt did not merit an entire dedicated page. For the most part, most of the suggestions are very practical, and if followed by the reader, would undoubtably lead to a more fulfilling and happier life. Jerry White offers valuable wise advice. Though this book may appear deceptively simple, the words contain timeless advise and wisdom. For many of us, who do not have time to read through long self help books, trudging through non applicable anecdotes and personal filler stories, I highly reccomend this book as a good option. This book would also make a nice, yet subtle gift for those of us who know a close friend or loved one, who is in need of some useful life skills and advice. As a blogger for Navpress publishers, I recieved a copy of this book for writing a review. The opinions expressed are my own and I was not required to write a positive review.
