RULES OF THUMB by Tom Parker 1983
Rules of Thumb. Tom Parker, Houghton Mifflin Company, 1983.
A mix of folk wisdom, common sense, shared experience, the advice of experts, and the kind of group think that's made websites like Wikipedia so vital, Rules of Thumb is the impulsive compendium of 1,000 general principles that apply to every facet of life.
Collected by Tom Parker for over 25 years, these are rules that are practical, quirky, and as entertaining to read as they are relevant to the reader. There's a rule of thumb for just about every subject imaginable― money, marriage, cooking, health, weather, cars, gardening, restaurants, travel.
