Bust­ing a gut to get that dream job? If so you might be wast­ing your time, ac­cord­ing to The Rules To Break.

If you’ve come across best-sell­ing author Richard Tem­plar be­fore, you’ll know he’s the giver of life’s se­crets in books such as The Rules of Life. But this time he’s turned all the rules on their head – and you might be sur­prised at what un­nec­es­sary, un­true or dam­ag­ing be­liefs he sug­gests we dump.

Com­mon ideas in so­ci­ety say that to be happy, we should ig­nore bul­lies, get our chores over with be­fore hav­ing fun, not make mis­takes, be a friend to ev­ery­one and have a good, well-pay­ing job. Here though, Tem­plar rub­bishes th­ese pre­con­ceived be­liefs and, with each rule break, he tells us the les­son we should re­place it with.

His mes­sage is clear – fol­low your own path through life and don’t con­form to please other peo­ple. While some rules he urges us to break could be dif­fi­cult to ac­cept or even quite per­sonal, this well­writ­ten book is deep, bold, pro­found and ac­ces­si­ble.

It will cer­tainly change mind­sets on a range of top­ics from fam­ily to jobs and at­ti­tudes to­wards oth­ers.
