Any Book With A Tartan Cover Can't Be Bad...
on December 30, 2005
Advice of both the common sense variety and the kind based on bitter experience is offered here in this pocket-sized volume. Non-controversial, cutesy-but-true helpful hints make up the bulk of its alleged 511 suggestions.
A random sampling of these spattered tidbits includes:
Learn to listen. Advice sometimes knocks very softly.
Be courteous to everyone.
Read to your children.
Be enthusiastic about the success of others.
Be brave. Even if you're not, pretend to be. No one can tell the difference.
Never criticize the person who signs your paycheck.
Lie on your back and look at the stars.
And one I especially liked:
Evaluate yourself by your own standards, not by someone else's.
So as you can see, these are nice little gems of wisdom. Not Confucius-level material, perhaps, but I doubt there's anyone who can't find something to grin over, agree with, or be improved by, all for less than ten bucks.
