If you loved "The Rules for Being Human" attributed to "Anonymous" in the bestseller Chicken Soup for the Soul, you're in luck. The author--corporate trainer Chérie Carter-Scott, Ph.D.--has stepped forward and written a follow-up book: If Life Is a Game, These Are the Rules. This book, "a basic spiritual primer for what it means to be a human," discusses each of the 10 rules (e.g., "There are no mistakes, only lessons," and "Lessons are repeated until learned,") and discusses them with kindness, eloquence, and wisdom. For example, rule 1 is, "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." Carter-Scott discusses the challenge of making peace with the body we've been given, and the lessons of acceptance (appreciating it as it is), self-esteem (viewing yourself as worthy, despite how your body looks or performs), respect (treating it like a "valuable and irreplaceable object"), and pleasure (indulging in the five senses to "unlock the joy stored within you"). Similarly, each of the rules has four "lessons." You'll read this inspirational book more than once, and mark quotes to tell friends. --Joan Price
In another winner from the author of the bestselling If Life Is a Game/If Love Is a Game series, Carter-Scott gently expresses her wisdomDeven if she doesn't break any new ground in the inspirational field. Careful not to define success as financial prosperity, Carter-Scott eloquently encourages readers to realize their own goals and dreams, not society's vision for them. To that end, she offers simple, profound suggestions for identifying and attaining personally defined success. Her approach is more philosophical and less dogmatic, and her voice is more engaging, than those in many self-help books covering the same territory. Respectful of her readersDshe addresses them as intelligent adults capable of introspection, analysis and changeDCarter-Scott suggests challenging exercises for self-discovery (such as writing one's life story and identifying role models) as well as for finding one's gifts, overcoming limiting beliefs and "stay[ing] positive."
