If you loved "The Rules for Being Human" attributed to "Anonymous" in the best-seller Chicken Soup for the Soul, you're in luck. The author--corporate trainer Chérie Carter-Scott, PhD--has stepped forward and written a follow-up book: If Life Is a Game, These Are the Rules. This book, "a basic spiritual primer for what it means to be a human", discusses each of the 10 rules (for example, "There are no mistakes, only lessons" and "Lessons are repeated until learned") and discusses them with kindness, eloquence, and wisdom. For example, rule 1 is: "You will receive a body. You may love it or hate it, but it will be yours for the duration of your life on Earth". Carter-Scott discusses the challenge of making peace with the body we've been given, and the lessons of acceptance (appreciating it as it is), self-esteem (viewing yourself as worthy, despite how your body looks or performs), respect (treating it like a "valuable and irreplaceable object"), and pleasure (indulging in the five senses to "unlock the joy stored within you"). Similarly, each of the rules has four "lessons". You'll read this inspirational book more than once, and mark quotes to tell friends. --Joan Price --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

I think the confusion is that IF LIFE IS A GAME, THESE ARE THE RULES by CHERIE CARTER-SCOTT has no direction. It is unclear whether CHERIE CARTER-SCOTT findings are that of research, statistics (stats), staus quo and logistics, observation, personal experience, professional experience, case history studies, therapy.
Eg: We have also been taught religiously and morally that
sacrifice/to sacrifice is Good/is a Good thing, yet IF LIFE IS
A GAME, THESE ARE THE RULES by CHERIE CARTER-SCOTT seems to
suggest that Sacrifice is somehow wrong as it does not Release
the conditions/Patterns or pave the way for permanent change,
only temporary change. This does nothing to Unite The
Maybe its me. I Understand Nothing.
