Any one and any team or organization can benefit from every member mastering the "Rules of the Game." •Chérie Carter-Scott reinforces each chapter with real life examples that help to bring her "10 Rules" Life has often been compared to a game. We are never told the rules, unfortunately, nor given any instructions about how to play. We simply begin at "Go" and make our way around the board, hoping we play it right. We don't exactly know the objective of playing, nor what it means to actually win.

If Life Is A Game, These Are The Rules...These Are The Rules is all about learning what Ten Rules for Being Human is all about. These are the guidelines to playing the game we call life, but they are also much more than that. These Rules will provide you with a basic spiritual primer for what it means to be a human. They are universal truths that everyone inherently knows but has forgotten somewhere along the way. They form the foundation of how we can live a fulfilling, meaningful life.

A message from Jack Canfield, about Dr. Chérie Carter-Scott:

I have known Dr. Chérie Carter-Scott for over 30 years. I have taken her workshop, co-sponsored conferences with her, had her consult with my organization and she has been my own personal coach. While reading this book If Life Is A Game, These Are The Rules, you will begin to see your life from a whole new perspective. If you embrace the principles in this book, I promise you that your life will magically transform and that you will learn the secrets to manifesting your heart's desire. The Ten Rules for Being Human will open up many transformational opportunities for you. Enjoy the book, learn the lessons and become a master of the game of life.

Jack Canfield Co-author of Chicken Soup for the Soul

Simple Truths has taken Dr. Chérie Carter-Scott's classic and made it better! If Life is a Game...These are the Rules, was #1 on the New York Times best seller list for many months.
