About the Book

How I Live My Life and Let Other People Live Theirs (Mary Sisney)
Click to Read an Excerpt
The Bronze Rule offers a corollary to the Golden Rule (Do unto others as you would have them do unto you).

This new rule says, "If they are not bothering you, don't bother them."

In other words, mind your business. The author describes three types of people based on their ability to follow the Bronze Rule -- teachers, social workers, and missionaries. Missionaries have the most trouble following the Bronze Rule.

The book includes eleven Bronze Rules for people to live by so that they won't bother the author, and she, therefore, won't have to bother them. It ends with a list of both serious ("Smarten the Vote Rules") and comic ("Putting the 'Real' in Reality Rules") Bronze Rules for all of us to live by so that we can stop bothering each other and live happily ever after.
