The Rules Of Life: A personal code for living a better, happier, more successful kind of life.
Some people seem to find life easy. They glide effortlessly onwards and upwards, always saying and doing the right things, whatever the situation. Everybody likes them – they are great to live with and great to work with. They are happy, have time for people, and always seem to know what’s important – and how to deal with those things that aren’t.
Is there something they know or do that we don’t? Is it something we could all learn? The answer is a resounding yes. They know the Rules of life.
The Rules of life are the guiding principles that will help you get more out of life, shrug off adversity more easily, and generally be a happier, calmer, more fulfilled person. You’ll feel the benefits, and so will everyone around you.
It’s your life. How good could it be?
‘Mary Portas gets the reader on board very effectively with a strong message about valuing women in the workplace and lots of shocking statistics about the state of play for women in business. These alone are enough to motivate you to keep reading and her early career stories are equally entertaining. However, as Portas continues, the book feels increasingly like a defence of her later career moves and downfall from her ‘Queen of Shops’ persona. Additionally, some of the feminine traits that she favours in the workplace often feel like another form of stereotyping. Overall, I found it a really interesting read.’
