كتاب جيد لمرحلة المراهقة او الشباب المبكر..نافع لتوخي مشاكل المستقبل ,ربما..ولكن ليس لمواجه الواقع او حل اشكالياته.جاء على شكل مقاطع وهو مناسب للشخصية الملولة او التي تبحث عن قراءة سريعة وافكار مختصرة .هو من الكتب المناسبة للقراءة في اوقات الانتظار وليس للتعمق..قواعد سهلة وواضحة.

My curiosity to read this book was finally administered last night when I decided to read ‘The Rules of Life’ by British Author Richard Templar.

It is divided into the following parts:
(1) Rules for You,
(2) Partnership Rules,
(3) Family and Friends Rules,
(4) Social Rules,
(5) World Rules.

This book isn’t a revelation, it’s a reminder.
It reminds you that the Rules of Life are universal, obvious, simple. Do them, they work”.
As the author best explains: “What you will find is good old-f

The expanded edition of "The Rules of Life: A Personal Code for Living a Better, Happier, More Successful Life" by Richard Templar is a great read for practical, motivational, and inspiring advice on how to live. Templar says if you follow these rules, you'll feel better, you'll be a better friend, partner, and parent, and that you'll leave the world a better place. I think he's right, and this book of rules is a great handbook of how to live, how to treat people, and how to be a better member o ...more

كتاب بسيط في طرحة عميق في نقاشه. يركز على امور يومية واهداف بسيطة الا ان تاثيراتها كبيرة. مهمة الكاتب حسب رايي كانت تاكيد امور فطرية يعيشها كل البشر الا انهم يمكن ان ينسوها في خضم الصغوطات والحياة .

أول كتاب في التنمية البشرية بعد ثلاث سنوات من تركها !

حقيقةً زعلانة من نفسي لأني خصصت قراءاتي لمجال معين الفترة الأخيرة وتركت تطوير و تنمية الذات، المعلومات وإن كانت مكررة نحن نحتاج نذكر فيها نفسنا بين كل فترة والثانية، في الأخير الإنسان ما حيتوقف لمرحلة معينة عن التطوّر والتنمية لنفسه!

أخترت الكتاب ظناً مني أنه خفيف لفترة كنت فيها مزدحمة، الكتاب 300 صفحة ما أعتقد أنه بخفّة كتب التنمية والتطوير!، الجميل والمميز في الكتاب أنه بيعطيك قواعد على عِدة اصعدة : على الصعيّد المهني، الشخصي، العائلي، الإجتم

Much of what this book touches on is basic common sense. In one way, it's an okay - although very basic - reminder of behaviors and mindsets most people already have.

I have two main gripes about the book.

1) There are 105 Rules, and they're all over the place. I didn't get much of a sense of connection between these rules, many were similar to others, and just weren't very concise. The book does not really take you anywhere.

2) The tone of the book feels as if the author is speaking down to the re

It is not a revelation, more a reminder!!

Mr. Templar really articulates a realistic guidance to live a quite, fulfilled, and somehow a happy life. It is a perfect book for young people or who are seeking towards success and achieving their dreams. One of the most significant things within the book, being long paragraphed articles! Every subject has only a page and half. Additionally, it is a good book for wise methods to overcome the downs of life.

Enjoy it! Enjoy your life

First of all I have to admit that I like the way that Mr Templer presents his thoughts in , it's easy , clear , deep and realistic which gives you a good life style .
This book should leave a great impact on your life , as will as it did to me . There are too many things that's iam really going to change in my own life style ,
There's some of the quotes that I like :

- What is done is done and you need to just get on with your life.
- Change what you can change and let go of the rest.

I bought this book in Heathrow Airport.

I have no idea why I tend to buy self-help books (or management books, another genre this applies to) in airports, apart from the broadening of standards that tends to apply when facing an eight-hour transatlantic flight, but I do; so it goes. This one, however, I didn't read on the flight - I think I bought quite a few books that time - so here I am coming to it much later.

Unfortunately, while I have found some good and interesting reads in this genre, I c

Nothing I don't already know. Personally I'm not a fan of books telling me what to do. Instead I prefer reading studies and observations. Yet, I loved the book, not for the content but for the style. It's so simple and light, catchy and sincere *not pretentious*. And yeah the rules can be a reminder or something of how to deal with the day-to-day situations given that people don't have time to think anymore ! Anyone can read it for a break or something..

This book is very tricky for my mindset to write a review about in a rational and objective. I know that the writer was able to publish a series of books based on the methodology of his work "Rules of life", but I was only able to appreciate it in the way a child knows that eating his/her vegetables is good for them, but views it as another chore to get done with.

This started off promising, but the further I read the more I realized I liked the concept of The Rules of Life: A Personal Code for Living a Better, Happier, and More Successful Kind of Life more than I liked the book itself. The content was alright, but Templar didn't include anything that I, and other readers, haven't already seen. However it was writing, rather than content, that earned this book a two-star rating.

One thing I value is the ability to write concisely, and this book didn't d

The Rules of Life is a collection of "rules" by Richard Templer on four areas of your life: self, spouse, family (parents and children), and friends. Each of these areas are separated into sections and within each sections, Richard Templar share with readers his observations on what successful people do.

The book has a light-read feel to it; readers who pick up the book should be able to finish it within two to three days. The writing is easy to comprehend but I am slightly annoyed at the frequen

I started reading it and it was really good, it made me think of myself and the things I need to change and those I need to cherish and appreciate. But I could not finish it, because I hated how direct it was, like a book of rules! (Well I should have expected that, that's what the title says anyway :D) for that I couldn't carry on reading it, but it has a lot of value in it and a lot of wisdom and I loved that!
Shekhzad Yousif
The Rules of Life is a book about to control the life, says: Live here. Live now. Live in this moment. The rules divided into four sections as circles. Rules player is the center of the circles, the first circle is Self, the second is partnerships, the third is family and friends, the fourth is social relationships. The rules are definitely good for who seeks toward the principles of life. They help one to build his/her basis life.

Buku ini aku beli bersamaan dengan the rules of management. Baru liat daftar isinya dan baca skimming. Sebenarnya banyak hal di buku ini yang sudah kita ketahui tapi kadang2 terlupa. Rutinitas kadang2 membuat kita tidak sempat belajar yang lain dan jadi suka asal dengan sekeliling kita.

I like this book as much as the The Rules of Love. So easy to read. My favorite rule is Rule 34 -- You'll Never Understand Everything followed by Rule 47 -- You Are Not in Charge. I get the feeling am going to buy more of his books.

خصّص لنفسك مساحة قليلة من الوقت كل يوم

يظن معظم الناس
أنهم يحققون ذلك بالفعل،
ولكنهم مخطئون

فهم حتى في الوقت الذي يقضونه وحدهم قلقون بشأن الغير ..
ويفكّرون في الأهل أو الأصدقاء أو الأحباء!

وأنت بذلك لا تمنح نفسك في واقع الأمر أي لحظة خالصة

خصص لنفسك بعض الوقت على أساس يومي ..
10 دقائق فقط، كرّسها لنفسك تمامًا

فأنت القائد لحياتك
وأنت الطاقة الدافعة

إن لم تحصل على هذا الوقت
فهذا يعني أنك لا تحصل على طاقة جديدة،
ومحركك سوف يتعطل، وتتهاوى أنت بالتالي

• ما الذي أفعله في هذا الوقت ؟

لا شيء بالمرة.. وأعني هذا تمامًا !!

إنه وقت التقاط الأنفاس
وقت الجلوس في صمت
دون عمل أي شيء

لا تقلق .. لا تفكر .. اجلس وحسب
وقدّر نعمة كوْنك على قيد الحياة
