If there´s one thing most people can agree on, it´s that there should be rules for life. And they´re right. We should have a set of rules that we can all agree on, that show us how to experience happier, more authentic lives. A set of rules that cuts through the crap of everyday life to expose what it is we can all agree is true, even if it isn´t always what we want to hear. This is why I assembled The Rule Book, a book about the truths of life - everything I could fit into 36 essays. The glass is half-empty and half-full. Isolation is illusion. There are no ´´backsies´´. Some days are just gonna suck. Everything - that´s right - everything is a blessing. And that´s just the beginning. I spent three years writing The Rule Book, finding a new rule each month. As each essay ran in Recovering the Self (www.recoveringself.com), I readied myself for what rule life would reveal (or just slap me over the head with) next month. There are rules for life. They´re all around us if we take the time to look. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Ken La Salle. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/bigh/000856/bk_bigh_000856_sample.mp3.

He´s the bad boy...but I´m the one breaking all the rules. I´ve always been the quintessential good girl. I don´t just follow the rules - I write them. As an advice columnist, I´m always telling people how to not screw up their lives. So you´d think I´d know better than to bang some random guy in a bar bathroom. But nope. Apparently not. Now, I´ve got even bigger problems, though. Because it turns out that wasn´t just some random guy. It was Tyler Grant. Rich. Playboy. Devastatingly gorgeous. Oh, and the publisher of my new dating-advice book. All my instincts are telling me to run like hell. It´s what I´d advise anyone else to do. But nope. I´ve had a taste, and I´m hooked. Now, I´m calling him at ungodly hours and showing up at his house drunk and begging for sex and tacos. In other words, breaking every rule in my own damn book.
