Format: Hardcover
Certainly the book contains some valid principles, or else it would not be as popular as it is. However, how a book can claim to teach spiritual lessons, but never even acknowledge God? It is humanistic philosophy that espouses that we alone can better ourselves. A close look around us shows that left to ourselves, we have made a mess of things. We MUST rely on Someone higher than ourselves. Also the advice the book offers is quite simplistic, not very deep. Very easy reading.

Could have been more aptly titled, Owners guide to being human.
Should be required curriculum in schools for how life works.
She has a great understanding of life's processes.

In the bestseller CHICKEN SOUP FOR THE SOUL, there was a
passage entitled "The Rules for Being Human" . . . it was originally
attributed to "Anonymous," but the author (Cherie Carter-Scott)
eventually came forward and wrote a follow-up book: IF LIFE IS
A GAME, THESE ARE THE RULES.
In this latter effort, Carter-Scott makes the rules come alive by
relating them to stories drawn from her own encounters, along
with examples from her family, close friends and workshop
participants . . . you almost feel as if she is talking with you
personally.
I found this short book to be most thought-provoking and
one that I will want to revisit--often.
There were several memorable passages . . . however, methinks
that you'll most enjoy just thinking about the various rules
that follow:
Rule One:
You will receive a body.
You may love it or hate it, but it will be yours for the duration
of your life on Earth.
Rule Two:
You will be presented with lessons.
You are enrolled in a full-time informal school called "life."
Each day in this school you will have the opportunity to
learn lessons. You may like the lessons or hate them, but
you have designed them as part of your curriculum.
Rule Three:
There are no mistakes, only lessons.
Growth is a process of experimentation, a series of trials, errors,
and occasional victories. The failed experiments are as much a
part of the process as the experiments that work.
Rule Four:
A lesson is repeated until learned.
Lessons will repeated to you in various forms until you have
learned them. When you have learned them, you can then go on
to the next lesson.

I absolutely loved the book. I would have liked the card to indicate its connection to the rule from which it's derived. However, the cards are appealing to the eye. I don't know that I'd give them to someone who hasn't read the book.

Never judge a book by its cover, or in this case, by its size. This title, a mere 137 pages in my hardcover format that is only 3/4 the size of most hardcovers, packs a wallop. The author is a true life coach in every sense of the word. Chérie uses her life experiences, as well as those of friends, colleagues and clients, to illustrate each of her 10 rules. The rules are simple, so simple that most of us have forgotten them. This is a book to be read, and re-read and re-read. Buy copies for your friends and family. From this tiny tome, you may unlock problems or concerns which you've suffered with and just couldn't put your finger on. I'm not saying it will make your life perfect but it may certainly smooth out some of the bumps. Highly recommended.

Format: Hardcover
Have you ever found a book that can serve and satisfy all criterias?
Strentghs: simple, easy to read, great examples.
I agree with the reader from San Francisco, CA USA
In a way it has much better explanation of success than in UP. Each book has its own strengths and weaknesses. They may not suit all your criterias.
Weaknesses:???
For specific cases you don't understand and are unsure, you just have to consult with the expert or buy another book that fills the gap or ask somebody who may be able to help.

An excellent concept that is simple to understand and apply to your life. The conversational and easy to read presentation of the rules invites to seriously think about your life and who you really are. This great work can help anyone who reads the book and applies the rules.

By Lea Dimarucut on March 12 2003
Format: Hardcover
For those who've consciously been searching for themselves for some time now, the message of this book is oft-heard and come across. Oh, don't get me wrong; it's all good advice, but rather more like a set of reminders that we've already heard before.
But for those who are only now beginning to go within for answers, I strongly recommend this book. It's very easy to follow--so easy in fact that you're likely to think, "Yeah, I've known that all along, but never tried it. It's about time I did!" This little volume is a gem of a handbook about life.
