Publisher's Description

The author recounts his descent into despair and his discovery of spiritual nourishment in the works of Aristotle, Emerson, Ben Franklin, and Plato, and enumerates the seventeen rules that helped transform his life.

Og Mandino was one of the leading inspirational authors in the world. But once, he was a thirty-five-year-old derelict who nearly spent his last few dollars on a suicide gun. In A Better Way to Live, he describes the joyously redemptive process that turned a down-and-out alcoholic into a millionaire and a happy man within ten years. Og Mandino is the only person who could tell this heartwarming tale of personal triumph—because it is his own true story. And it can profoundly influence your life. Here are the principles that turned Og Mandino’s life around: his seventeen "Rules to Live By."

These simple, easy-to-follow rules comprise a sound, wise prescription for inner growth and for a fulfilling everyday life that will work for you—just as it worked for Og Mandino. You can avoid spending even one more day feeling failure, grief, poverty, shame, or self-pity. Here is a better way to live: a way that literally saved Og Mandino’s life, a way that can help make your dreams come true.

    The book is divided into two parts. Og talks about lessons he learnt from the past - before he became a successful salesperson and writer and what he did to achieve that. The second part is a list of 17 rules to live by which according to Og, is a better way to live.

    One of the things Og does in the first part, is to invite us into his writing room. There are so many things in that room of his and before he finishes talking about most of the things in his room, you can tell that he loved keeping stuff!

    We get a picture of how Og's first marriage failed as a result of bad choices and we see how he reached a turning point in his life and decided to change after almost killing himself. We see how he gradually begins and maintains a successful life.

    Part two is all about the 17 rules to live by. Whilst I won't mention all the rules, I particularly liked the first which talked about counting our blessings. We are told that until we evaluate our current situation and take time to see what we have and not what we haven't got at the moment, then there might be a tendency to think that there is nothing to be grateful for. It's in counting our blessings that we realise our true value and worth.

    I believe all the rules given in the books are great nuggets. Some might be easy to achieve, whilst others might need a little bit of working on or practice. All in all, I would say the book is worth a read.
