Review:

"Most of the rules found in this 219-page book are delightfully sensible. They certainly live up to Templar's declaration that these guiding principles "will help you get more out of life, shrug off adversity more easily and generally be a happier, calmer, more fulfilled person." Indeed, not only will you feel the benefits but also everyone else around you. " - The Star (Malaysia), August 2006

"And they're not really rules, they're things we kind of knew already but have forgotten because we were too busy going to the gym and the therapist trying to figure out what was missing and there it was all the time... staring us in the face!"

- Radio Anna Livia (January 2006)

"Follow Templar's rules and enjoy a more fulfilled existence. Down-to-earth and witty it will change your attitude to life."

- Red, (July 2006)

From the Back Cover:

A personal code for living a better, happier, more successful kind of life

 

Some people seem to be just good at life. They glide effortlessly onwards and upwards, always seeming to know the right things to say and do, in every situation. Everybody likes them Ė they are great to work with and to live with. They are happy (for the most part) and they know how to roll with lifeís punches. They have time for everybody and always seem to know whatís important (and how to deal with whatís not).

Is there something they know and do that we donít? Is it something we could all learn? The answer is a most definite yes. They know the Rules of Life.

The Rules of Life are the guiding principles that will help you achieve more, shrug off adversity more easily, get more out of life and generally be a happier, calmer, more fulfilled person. You'll feel the benefits Ė and so will everyone around you.

 

It's your life. How good could it be?
