Free Fridays

Categories: Free Fridays

Today’s Free Fridays selection—The Rules of Life  by Richard Templar—is an international bestseller that has inspired millions of readers worldwide.

While many self-improvement books offer advice that seems overly abstract or too daunting to even take the first step, Richard Templar does an excellent job of distilling his wisdom into easy-to-execute common sense rules. Templar’s code focuses on building a better, happier, more successful life, both in business and your personal relationships. You can implement his easy, direct advice immediately, helping you master important skills like forgiving without being a pushover and having big dreams while still making practical steps to achieve them.


Once you’ve implemented Templar’s rules, you can explore his guides to more specific categories like Money, Management, Love and more here.



Free Fridays Recommends


Each week, we ask our featured author to recommend a book or author that you may want to check out. Since authors are such passionate readers themselves, we thought you might like to find out what they love to read, too! Here’s what Richard recommends:


Jon M. Huntsman's Winners Never Cheat is much more than a book on business.  It's a book about how to business effectively, ethically, and generously. Huntsman teaches us that as times change, situations change, and our lives change, our basic values must never change. These values will see you through hard times and help make you, and the rest of the world, better off in the end.









NOOK owners: go to shop and search for “Richard Templar” to download his inspiring books.

There used to be a guy who did Sci-fi and Thrillers separate from spec's list.  Anyone know why he stopped?  I used to get a ton of books off of his list.
