Rules of Thumb 2 book. Some of the rules are fairly whimsic I picked up Rules of Thumb 2 at a local used bookstore on Friday & read thru it over the weekend.

Parker does provide an index - with "more whimsical groupings" (such as Rules that Rhyme) indicated in upper case

This is the priceless knowledge that's accumulated not from reading, but from living. Tempted by a string of pearls at a yard sale?

The English phrase rule of thumb refers to a principle with broad application that is not intended to be strictly accurate or reliable for every situation. It refers to an easily learned and easily applied procedure or standard, based on practical experience rather than theory. This usage of the phrase can be traced back to the seventeenth century and has been associated with various trades where quantities were measured by comparison to the width or length of a thumb.

Some of the rules of thumb are helpful. A lot of them are not very good. "How to tell if a ghost is real?" Gimme a break.

Bought this as a spare Christmas gift and everyone was fighting over who could read it next! Fun, factual and practical, great price and speedy delivery too!

I don't know what it is with some of the so-called reviews of this book. They were written long before the book was even published. Amazon needs to get its act together and clean up the review process. For all of you potential readers out there, here is a REAL review of this book: Rules of Thumb is more than a book. It is a toolbox of shortcuts. There are a number of things I like about the book, starting with how it feels. It is small and fits in the palm of your hand. Set it on your kitchen counter, and it makes a great conversation starter when guests come over because no one can resist picking it up. It is fun because it is full of pictures. Use the index to find the rule you need. Best of all, Rules of Thumb compiles the advice of people who have learned from experience--so you don't have to. In this time of penny pinching, it will make a great stocking stuffer. I'm getting one for each member of my family.
This is full of many of the things that you have heard when you were growing up, as well as common sense. It will make a good guestroom or bathroom book.
