The World’s Best How-to Book | Life is not a dress rehearsal.  We’re on stage for our first and final performance, and we don’t get any do-overs.  We need a how-to book, and  I have good news.  There is a proven how-to book; its advice has never failed for thousands of years. The book is the best-selling book of all time and tops the bestseller list year after year.  The problem is very few people read it, and even fewer people heed its messages about how to live every day.  That’s a shame, because it provides advice that could be helpful to you this very day and every day for rest of...
