Book Review: THE RULES OF LIFE by Richard Templar

THE RULES OF LIFE by Richard Templar describes the principles that will help us to get more out of our lives. The book deals with challenges which we face on a day-to-day basis and how we need to learn each day from those challenges. The contents elaborate on wise sayings, such as: change what you can change; let go of the rest; It’s OK to give up; Be your own adviser; Dedicate your life to something; Don’t expect to be perfect.

The chapters formulate a personal code for living a better, happier, more successful kind of life. The author, Richard Templar also deals with dysfunctional features that commonly occur in families due to circumstances beyond anyone’s control. His advice is well-matched with each of his topics and relationships. The book is a beautiful, knowledge-gaining-experience.

All the 106 Rules of the book are extremely thought provoking. Here’s an example. Rule 2 reads: You’ll get older but not necessarily wiser… Wisdom isn’t about not making mistakes, but about learning to escape afterwards with our dignity and sanity, intact.

The book is published by Dorling Kindersley (India) Pvt. Ltd., Licensees of Pearson (UK).
