Shinn begins with the following: “Most people consider life a battle. It’s not a battle, though; it’s a game. And like most games, it can’t be played successfully without understanding the rules.” She explores the six essential rules of the game: The Laws of Expectancy, Substitution, Karma, Non-Resistance, Use, and Love. This essential user’s manual provides a roadmap for making informed decisions and fully embracing a life of success and happiness.
