The moment we are born, we are bound to follow rules. From young, there are rules for hygiene such as wash your hands before meals, brush your teeth in the morning and before sleep etc. Once you start to attend school, there are school rules to abide strictly such as never be late for school in the morning, submit your school home works promptly, fulfill the promotion criteria on examinations results before you can be promoted to the next grade.
But life is not that straight forward, there many other rules that are categorized not base on your stages in life. Today, I would like to recommend to you the books by Richard Templar who had written many books on rules. I’ve put them all in one post so that you can have a good summary of all of them. Purchase a copy based on the topics that meet your current needs, and I am sure you will be blessed.

The Rules of Life
This was the first book I bought on the Rules Series. I was greatly blessed and got interested with the rest of the books written by Richard Templar.

This revised edition includes nine new rules to take you further, faster.

These are realistic, common sense things you can do differently, starting today… small things that make a powerful difference. The topics that are covered are listed below:

The Rules of Love
Love matters. Whether it’s the romantic kind or the emotional bond between you and family or friends. Indeed, latest research suggests that those who love and are loved are significantly more likely to be alive in 10 year’s time than those without love in their lives.
Love makes us happy, and the happier we are, the longer it seems we tend to live. So, why is it that some people find relationships so easy? We all know the kind of person, married forever, connected with their family, and strong friendships that have stood the test of time from all stages of life. The people who make friends easily, who have someone utterly devoted to them and for whom many would do anything. What do they know and do that the rest of us could learn from?
That’s what you’ll find in this book. If you study people who are so good at relationships you discover it’s not about their personality or gender or how self-sacrificing they are. Those who are great in all relationships usually do have to work at it. The secret is that they know exactly where to put their efforts.
They know the Rules of Love. Now updated and expanded with 10 brand-new rules, The Rules of Love helps you benefit from the simple principles of forming and sustaining strong, enduring and ultimately, life enhancing relationships.
